How long is the proverbial piece of string? This is actually a pretty impossible question to answer and here’s why. The possibilities of what you can do on the guitar are pretty much endless. Check out some virtuoso players in a variety of different genres: classical, jazz, blues, metal etc. These guys have spent many years getting their playing to the level it’s at now, and would probably be the first to admit that they still have a lot to learn.
How much progress you make with your playing depends not only on what is taught in the lessons, but also on how long you spend in between practising these concepts in
the right way. Everyone has different learning capabilities, levels of enthusiasm, and time to dedicate to learning guitar. Some students will get beyond beginner level in a matter of months, others can take much longer. Learning guitar can be tough, especially at the beginning, but once you have mastered the basics, there is so much more you will be able to do. The best way to progress steadily is to dedicate some time each and every day to practise the things you are taught in your lessons.
Ask yourself the following questions:
· What would I like to be able to play on the guitar (there will probably be several answers to this question)?
· What would have to happen for me to be able to play guitar the way I would like to (there will probably be several different processes that will need to be worked
Once I know what it is that you would like to achieve, I’ll be able to give you a much clearer idea of how you can move forward. Learning guitar can be a cool hobby, but it can also be a lifelong pursuit.
