I have learned guitar for about a year and a half now but still not so advanced (I learned it by my own). How did you all guys here learn your guitar skills? Did you learn it by your own or did you go for a guitar course?

However, I actually could not figure out on what do they teach you in professional guitar course? Will we be able to be those professionals if we learn by our own?

Just a small wondering though .

yeah man u can come just as 'professional' as any one. there are plenty of guitarists who are self taught and making the big bucks. im 100% self taught and i buy the mags total guitar and guitar world, they are both excellent magazines and show plenty of hint, tips, etc and usually have a lot of theory lessons as well incase you are not familiar, thats where i learnt everything i know.
