I am considering starting lessons again as I feel I've kind of hit a wall... anyway, I'm looking at some local guitar teachers -- I found one who looks appealing... I clicked "Pay now through paypal" just to see how much it would be per hour, and it wanted something like $140. Is this normal? there's no way any lesson is worth that, right? When i was a kid taking lessons I paid $12 for a half hour and learned a TON.

Are you sure it's just for one hour and not for a number of time blocks?

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

Although 12$ per half hour is on the low side, 140$ is pretty damned expensive.

You should be able to find a great teacher for a lot less than that.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

The only way I'd pay 140 bucks an hour for lessons is if I'd be getting them from like, Kirk Hammett.

I pay $40 for an hour, which is pretty cheap around here. LOL at taking lessons from Hammett.

that's a false economy, you could buy a wah pedal easily for that much.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Taking lessons with well known musicians does actually cost alot more then normal lessons. I have seen them go as high as $140 an hour.
If it's just some random guy, then theres no way in hell I'd give em' that much.
#30
I paid 32 per 30 minutes, looks likes I got ripped

But I quit lessons after 2 monthes, he kept coming late to lessons and I learned enough

im curious though, is there anything that a well known guitarist can teach you but a lesser known ordinary teacher can't?

I think Tom Hess charges something like $10,000 per year.

I'd pay $140 an hour for guitar lessons, but only if she was really hot and the lessons came with a happy ending.

Otherwise not a chance

Damn that's a lot. For $231 you can get a VIP ticket to a Paul Gilbert concert that includes a 1 hour lesson. That's Paul ****ing Gilbert, not just some random guy. Paul ****ing Gilbert!


That $231 (or 160 Euros) also gets you (from his site):

* VIP access to watch soundcheck
* An official tour laminate pass
* A new Paul Gilbert T-shirt, CD, instructional DVD, and guitar pick
* And of course, a ticket to the show!
