If you want to learn to play guitar then I have good news for you, it has never been easier or faster to learn. The biggest problem facing students has always been finding a tutor with the requisite level of skill to teach at the student's level and with space available to take on extra students.
The next major hurdle is that in order to make progress once the basics are mastered it has traditionally been necessary to find other players of a similar standard to practice with and improve. This has always been fraught as members of a band tend to develop at different rates. Even worse band members tend to develop differing musical tastes as they progress. On top of which you need to be available to play at all of their gigs, which with today's busy schedules is not always possible.
What if all of these issues could be resolved for you? What if you could learn at your own pace and repeat lessons as often as you wished? What if you could pick a different tutor as the mood takes you? What if you could choose the style of guitar that you want to learn today? What if you want to try a different style tomorrow?
Well now it is all possible! Today you can learn to play the guitar more simply, easily, quickly and as effortlessly as possible. New courses have been made by assembling teams of the best tutors available, and producing courses in streaming video with lessons, example songs, electronic tuners, tabs, music, and recordings to play along to. The modern internet based and/or downloadable courses help to solve all your issues and are always available to you, as long as you can connect to the internet, and have your instrument with you.
Some of these modern courses are also available on DVD and/or CD with booklets for those that prefer hard copy. When the course is provided on-line the option of printing music and/or tabs is usually included.
Users of these types of courses are finding that the video and play along aspects give a much quicker mastery of the instrument and the cost to the consumer is considerably less than the traditional private tutor who will cost in the range of thousands of dollars per year.
I should add that whilst these courses help players learn more rapidly, and are the fastest learning method yet developed, there is no method yet that entirely eliminates the need to practice. All the best players will tell you if asked how they got to be that good "years of practice, practice and more practice". These video courses provide clear visual demonstrations, teach you to read music and/or tabs and give you the correct time signatures, but in the end your playing ability is determined by your determination and how much you practice.
