Imagine before it was possible to get lessons on the internet. If you wanted to learn to play you would probably be found at your local music shop, your local college or scanning the local newspaper for individual instructors that would teach you how to play. You would likely end up paying $25 USD for 30 to 60 minutes of instruction. And you would most likely schedule these lessons for 2-3 times per week.
Now, we have other options for picking up guitar skills on our own time. You can get guitar instruction from a site with 50+ qualified instructors from many different genres for fifteen to twenty dollars per month. Or, you can pay yearly and get an entire year for about $100. That means an unlimited amount of instruction from many instructors on many different styles of playing for a whole year and it’s often less than you would pay for 2 wks with a single instructor. Pro lessons are so much more accessible now. We will be talking a lot more about the benefits of taking guitar lessons online but for now check out this great video of Andy McKee playing the acoustic guitar for some inspiration.
