Hi guys. I have been learning guitar for 3 years now, and recently I've found that my guitar lessons arn't teaching me anything. All I get is another page of tabs to add to the thousands (literally!) of other tabs in my file, which is just about ready to fall to peices. I have the same teacher for spanish and electric guitar. I'd like your opinion on what i should do now. It is 24 quid for a half hour lesson. Should I pack lessons in and self teach? Or should I stick with the lessons. I'd greatly appreciate your feedback. Cheers.

I'd concider changing teacher, but not quitting lessons.

The CasinEDIT: Burn all your tabs, that way it will look like you get your first when you get a new one.

If the lessons aren't teaching you anything than why would you pay for them? You wouldn't now quit the lessons and find a new teacher or teach yourself.

I pay £9 for half an hour with my tutor. You're getting ripped off. Even the worlds best teacher isn't worth that...

And this guy teaches spanish aswell

Not saying he can't, but let's be honest here, people who specialise are __GENERALLY__ Better.

I pay less than half that for half an hour, and my teacher went to music college and everything. Just find a new teacher (who's much cheaper) or do it yourself. I dont know why you're paying that much if all he does is give you tabs, you could get those for free off the internet anyways...a good teacher should be teaching you mainly theory, or giving you tabs but teaching the theory behind that song, increasing your musical knowledge. Anyone can sit around with someone for half an hour and show them where their fingers go to sound like *insert song name here*.

I don't think i'll get rid of my teacher, i'll just give him a pay drop. He's played guitar for 50 years! So he's not a bad teacher. I'll just give him a quick kick up the backside so we can learn about the good stuff. Any more suggestions on what to do would be welcome
