Yeah, so yesterday was my first guitar lesson. We talked about improvising, jammed with the teacher and talked about playing technique (also started playing some 3 note per string shape scales). The teacher was a nice guy, very relaxed and yeah, I found the lesson very helpful.
I'm taking ten one-hour lessons, let's see how my guitar playing improves.
Oh, and I'm pretty busy due to matriculation exams (bleh). Fortunately it's all over soon and I never have to go to school again.
Hey we all start somewhere. I actually just got music lessons from my Jazz teacher in high school. Although I didnt play jazz he gave a theory class and it helped my overall understanding very much so.
I started in the 60's with a guitar teacher showing me about the notes and staff's, "boring", and after a month or so, I stopped the lessons and started picking out songs off the radio just by hearing them, this way for me was more exciting than figuring out which note counted so many beats.
So as I am today, I can read a few notes if I want, but prefer to play by ear and writing down the tab-notes of how I play the songs. This to me is very enjoyable and has kept me playing all these years.
