    Default Learn Guitar online

    Hello there. I play for about 10 years and started a little late (at 26 years old). Right now I feel like I've stopped evolving.

    In fact, I've never followed some consistent routine, just took some lessons at the beggining and made my own path from there. That's why I've never really been that good.

    Now, one of my 2019 goals is get better and dedicate some time on actually learning guitar. With that in mind, I came across some guitar courses that those "famous" Youtube guys offer.

    Does anyone of you has any experience with that kind of learning system and could share you thoughts?

    Thanks!

    A couple of years back, I took myself back to scratch (after almost 40 years) to learn/relearn/unlearn the habits of a lifetime - I have ZERO regrets and emerged a much better player on all levels.

    I chose Paul Gilbertís course at artistworks and, it is excellent (heís one of the most genuine teachers Iíve come across online).

    Of YouTubers, Iíve only done free lessons - the ones who stand out for me are:

    Paul Davids (heís just released a beginnerís course, so I donít know itís applicable here)

    David Wallimans (not tried his official lessons, but his vids are always giving me something new to try/refine)

    Tim Pierce (not tried his masterclass, but he seems very, very good from what Iíve watched/followed)

    We live with an embarrassment of riches when it comes to learning now - I cut my teeth in the early-80s, when even VHS lessons were a dream - learning by ear and from tab in Guitarist magazine was it for me!

    This guy is pretty great. He covers everything from music theory to technique, to tone, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Just looking at the names of his videos will show you the scope of his lessons.
    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
    Would you hear my voice come through the music
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?

    Yes! I missed him in my list. Interesting presentation style (sometimes offputting) but great content.

    Thanks for the advices! Get back to scratch is something I'd like to do. Relearn things so I can evolve in a better way.

    I really like Paul Gilbert's teaching style. It is very educative, but not for complete dummies.

    My initial thought was to get a complete course, because I tend to get lost between classes. What to learn now? And then? I'll take a close look on the guys you've mentioned.

    Paulís course has a free trial, I think. Worth trying. He starts at basic and ends up at, well, Paul Gilbert! Most useful is his approach to breaking things down and learning, it helped me focus my practice and I still use the approach when writing/recording/learning new parts today.
