This is what a hammer-on is...
This is what a pull-off is...
This is the neck...
This is the volume knob...

Blah blah blah just all that stuff.

If it's a good teacher you should probably spend a little while talking about what you want out of the lessons and that kind of thing, then maybe spend some time playing so the teacher can get some idea of what level you're on then into the teaching based on whatever comes out of the above two things.

Or at least that's what I do when I teach.

The time I fell on my face on a trampoline and cracked my neck, then proceded to run around the yard in a blind panic screaming "I hope I'm not paralyzed! OH GOD I THINK I'M PARALYZED!"

If i would be you I would ask for alot of theory, i Regret that i did not learn theory first.


You have to walk before you run, yet some people sweep without even knowing why theyre playing which notes


Theory FTW

This. If you're writing music theory is like eyesight, yes you can get by without it but really ... why would you want to?

well, i couldn't say, i've never taken lessons(self taught FTW) but if he's any good he'll be asking you questions about what you want to learn and play and your goals and stuff like that and what you already know

I knew it. For the last hour I've been practicing a bit so I don't go into my lesson cold. This way when he asks me to play what I know I won't **** up on everything and then have to start out with "this is the neck, this is the bridge, this is the truss rod" ect.

To each his own. I've been self taught for 5 months myself. Reasons for wanting to stay self taught? Just curious.
