Which Technique was most effective for you and why?


1 - why is there no level between "hobby" and "professional". I'm not a pro but I think calling myself a hobbyist is somewhat insulting to the amount of practice I used to do and the amount of playing I still do.

2 - What on earth is a 'progressive book'?

3 - How do you define self-taught? A lot of people would define it as just being anything that doesn't involve a direct human teacher but obviously you don't, do you mean completely alone with no outside direction at all?

4 - 'Online lessons' is somewhat nebulous, do you mean like correspondence lessons from a teacher? Text lessons like you find on here? Online videos?

5 - By technique do you mean learning technique or playing technique? Like which lessons worked best for you? Don't you think that's a little hard to define? I mean, I had a teacher for a while when I'd just started playing but he didn't teach me half of what I know today, he gave me the absolute basics to work from; you can't compare what he taught me to what I taught myself...

Ok, cool, now maybe if you answer the other questions I'll actually complete your survey; I wasn't asking for the hell of it, I would actually like some clarification...

Training my ear. I used to sit down with a CD playing and just find the rhythm, the pitch, the riff and the solo. It was an incredibly powerful way to train my ear and over time, it improved all areas of my playing, especially my improv.

I'd say it was constructive criticism and I'd like those issues addressed too. However, since you failed to elaborate, I shall answer your questions in my own way:

How Long Have You been Playing/Learning Guitar?

5 years.

How Dedicated are you to Playing Guitar?
Obsessed and I'd like to take it to a professional level.

Which Learning Techniques Have you used?
I had two or three lessons with a teacher but the only real thing I learned from him was the finger per fret rule. My learning has mainly come from reading internet articles, forums, and watching youtube videos... Filtering through all the crap to figure out what makes sense and what doesn't.

Which Technique was most effective for you and why?

Learning technique wise: breaking everything down, isolating problems and then working past them slowly.
Guitar technique wise: I can say the basics are very important; no matter what fancy techniques you use, if there's something fundamentally wrong with your fretting or your posture, you're going to have problems.

Playing for 3 years

Hobby (since there's nothing between hobby and professional, and I'm not a pro).

Never had a professional guitar teacher, but have used every other resource available to me (the ones you listed other than teacher).

I find that if you have a good teacher (the key word is good, not just some wannabe rockstar who's trying to make some money because his band failed to get anywhere; a serious teacher who loves teaching and knows his stuff), then you can benefit greatly. Otherwise, as long as you are literate, have patience, self-motivated, and all of that stuff then I prefer learning on my own (using the resources mentioned).

Since I did your survey I would appreciate it if you click on the link in my sig.

Teacher, I'd say. Someone's there to spot all your mistakes and correct you. Online articles are a close second. Even though the articles are more theory-based, they've helped me deconstruct some aspects of the guitar playing, allowing me to apply my techniques more easily.

- took a music theory class in school, but most of my learning was trial, error, and observation of other guitarists/posters here. chord and scale construction can take you pretty damn far theoretically as a start, so i felt no need to use teachers. i'm simply self sufficient, though.

Started at 14, played on /off till around 19 then lost interest because I had no teacher and i only knew 4 chords. Picked it up again at the age of 32 and have been playing for the last 1 year

How Dedicated are you to Playing Guitar?
Definitely not professionally cause I am married with a kid and have a day job so I don't have the time. But personally I would love to be able to get my technique on par with a professional musician. I love playing and I play whenver I get the chance.
P.S:But if I were to get the call to replace Mark Tremonti or Slash, I sure would quit my day job

Which Technique was most effective for you and why?

Using my ears before using a book. I'd learn everything by ear but when I get stuck I used to turn to tabs. Pretty confident with my note hearing, I can work things out quick. Only bother using tabs if I CBA to sit and work it out.

Watching videos in combination with the other two options by far has been very effective for me. Watching videos of people performing techniques allows me to correct my mistakes as best as I can. And you'll be surprised at how much you can just figure out yourself with enough practice.

Unfortunately I have not had a traditional teacher but I very well plan on taking lessons when money allows.

Which Technique was most effective for you and why?
I took lessons for a year or so, to get started and make sure my technique was okay before I did anything else. That was a good way to start, but unless you can find a teacher that plays the exact same stuff you do, you can only get so far, and since then I've been self-taught. So I'd say a bit of each.

Thank you all very much for your responses this is seriously helping me out so much. and because many of you have asked i shall clarify the questions. but seriously this is just for school and shouldn't be taken very seriously, and even if the possible answers aren't exactly what you want, could you please just do it to the closest answer, as i cannot have a thousand different answers. thanks again

1 - why is there no level between "hobby" and "professional". I'm not a pro but I think calling myself a hobbyist is somewhat insulting to the amount of practice I used to do and the amount of playing I still do.
I couldn't think of another option, sorry.

2 - What on earth is a 'progressive book'?
A book that progressively gets harder.

3 - How do you define self-taught? A lot of people would define it as just being anything that doesn't involve a direct human teacher but obviously you don't, do you mean completely alone with no outside direction at all?
Very little, or no other help besides yourself (and i would say that training by ear would go here, as you are teaching yourself the song)

4 - 'Online lessons' is somewhat nebulous, do you mean like correspondence lessons from a teacher? Text lessons like you find on here? Online videos?
Online lessons refers to videos, or teachers that are only available on the internet.

5 - By technique do you mean learning technique or playing technique? Like which lessons worked best for you? Don't you think that's a little hard to define? I mean, I had a teacher for a while when I'd just started playing but he didn't teach me half of what I know today, he gave me the absolute basics to work from; you can't compare what he taught me to what I taught myself...
Technique in this means Learning Technique, and as i said before if you can just round your answer to the closest possible answer it would be most appreciated.

I am studying a music course for 1 year.

Which Technique was most effective for you and why?


Things like legato and similar styles.

This is common in many many forms of music in its various forms. Before I played guitar I played saxophone for 7 years, which gave me strong fingers, which helped me to get all the legato stuff down very quickly.


I'd also like to give a strong mention to funk strumming.

I also acquired an 8 track early on that allowed me to hear myself playing so I could pinpoint what needed work. That was and still is a MAJOR part in how I learned to play. It's also a helpful writing tool!

Honestly I've found that I've made the most progress while teaching myself from video lessons, I'm quite a visual learner when it comes to these things, that being said, the guy who taught me did give the basics and foundation of everything I now do so I owe him a huge amount as well.
