ok well ive been thinking of getting lessons, and im wondering, what exactly do you do at them?

So far I can pretty much play most of the stuff I want to learn so I dont know what I would gain through lessons.

What do you do at lessons pretty much?

Thanks in advance

I haven't took guitar lessons, but I know they show you some scales, excercises for warming up, chords, songs etc...

I take lessons to learn guitar theory and to broaden my horizons as a musician. Obviously, an instructor will show you scales, modes, and all of the essentials to learning the guitar, and usually you can find someone who will teach you based on your needs. My guitar instructor knows I play mostly metal, but he's also teaching me jazz chords and jazz theory because I am interested in that as well. I definitely recommend getting lessons if you haven't had any just because it will help you shift from simply being a guitarist to being a musician.

Steve was quoting dictionary.com, showing the OP what the word lesson means...


@OP I am taking lessons, just tell the guy/girl what you know and they will teach you from there. Mostly you will learn scales, and theory with songs mixed in to drive off boredom.

Oh I thought there was a UG member named Dictionary.com that went around pasting definitions on thread.

i was using lessons to learn mostly theory and reading music, so i would assume thats the main stuff. some people only get lessons to learn songs

well its totally defendant on the teacher, some will be classically trained musicians and know a lot about theory, some might like to teach songs more and develop rhythm or lead stuff, whatever they like to teach though you will learn something so its not a terrible thing. I am actually meant to have a lesson right now but someone tried breaking into my house last night, I cant find my teachers number to tell him im gunna miss it as well i feel really bad
