There are usually 2 ways to start learning guitar, Online and Offline. Probably 10 or 15 years ago this was not the situation. Back then it was necessary to find a teacher willing to teach guitar or, we could have joined a music institute, which is still a great idea to learn how to play guitar if time and money are not an issue.
Now, if you choose to learn guitar with Jamorama, it is a fact that you will wonder what to expect from a video course. Well, in my opinion, this courses are very complete, of course, there are many methods out there, and more than often there is not just one top program, but there are quite a few that can actually teach you to play guitar.
You can expect, from these video lessons, very specific and very good explanations about the technique you are learning. For example, if you are learning a lesson about Tuning Up your guitar, the video will explain you very slowly how to do it, and it is goint to repeat, within the lesson, how to do it. And here comes the best part, let’s say that you do not want to see the explanation again, you just move ahead and your tutor won’t get angry.
Another plus that guitar lessons online give, is that you improve more quickly than if you join a music school, because your improvement will not be based on the slowest person in the class. The problem is that by not having a personal teacher, you won’t be able to ask a question and get an answer right away, however, almost all of these courses offer 24/7 support, to get a professional answer from an expert.
When learning the guitar online you not only determine what videos to skip and what lessons to take over and over, based on the results you see. Now, the idea of having a method is to stick to it, but since you have to be self motivated, you are able to decide what lessons to do, this way, you will not get bored. That being said, that is in fact a common problem when starting to play guitar. Once or twice people try to move too fast, that they get frustrated and quit.
Usually this type of courses are divided in beginners, intermediate and advanced lessons; I do not know if all of them are like this, I have not tried them all yet, but, the ones I have had the chance to work with are indeed a powerful tool to learn how to play and to improve my techniques.
So, you get very detailed explanations, friendly support, you get to learn at your own speed, and probably the best part for many people, you do not have to move from your home to get them. I never get tired of saying this, it is really crucial to practice every day, especially when you begin to learn. Good luck and have a nice day.
