Online Guitar Lessons:

We find that 99% of the music posted online is full of mistakes, and inaccurate transcriptions. All you have to do to verify this is go to one of the top “TAB” sites. Then play what is written and compare it to what you hear on the real version of the song. On top of being inaccruate, there is also some key info left out. First, online transcriptions do not break down the rhythmic component so you can count what is happening on each beat. Also, they do not display the strum or picking pattern. Online guitar, or bass TAB transcriptions don’t teach you the context either. This involves knowing what key you are in, what the chords in that key are, whether the chords follow a diatonic progression, (chords native to the key).

 

More about Online Guitar Lessons:

Also it includes if there are “non native” substitute chords or how the chord progression influences what scales, arpeggios, or licks may be played over those chords. Online TAB transcriptions or youtube videos, are teaching you like a parrot learns to talk. You may learn to repeat a phrase, if you are good enough to get it by ear, but you don’t know what you are saying musically, or what context it fits in. With our approach to lessons, you will get more mileage out of each song, because you learn the context, and how it applies!  Let MyLocalMusicLessons.Com help you reach your full potential.

Next, learning the context of how a technique, or skill, or piece of theory knowledge fits in a familiar song is a key. This will help your understanding why it works. Also, we encourage you to choose a playlist of songs that represent the styles you are interested in.

Purchasing A Guitar In Fort Collins CO:

When it comes down to making a purchase, doing some research will help. Also knowing what styles you want to play will also help narrow down the choices.You don’t use cross country skis for downhill skiing. Also, you don’t bang nails with a screwdriver. Subsequently, with guitars you want to get the right tool for the job! Some obvious choices are if you like country, folk or bluegrass, you are going to want acoustic. Additionally, if you like hard rock, heavy metal, or punk you want electric. Other styles are not always as cut and dried. For example many classic rock bands have a combination of acoustic and electric. If you are already signed up for lessons, you can ask your guitar teacher. If not you can reach out and ask any guitar teacher near you.

Electric Guitar vs Acoustic Guitar-Which One Is Right For You? 

Making this choice has a lot to do with what styles you areinterested in. However, not everyone knows this going into guitar lessons. First, however I would like to de bunk a common misconception. Manypeople think that there is some reason they should start with acoustic and then “graduate” toelectric. This is not a true statement. In fact for many guitarists, starting on electric isthe best option, and this would be based on if they have a strong affinity for certain styles, andor have specific goals oriented towards one or the other. So, with that said, here are the commongeneralizations and pros and cons.
