    Default Where to take some online courses?

    Hello all,
    I've been playing guitar on and off for 39 years. I only had about 1.5 years of lessons total and have played by ear and self taught since. I did however put the guitar down for over 13 years and then picked it up back in 2006.
    I have always had many holes in my playing and want to really improve on my overall playing. Going to lessons didn't work out for me locally as I tried twice and didn't get very far. One teacher kept double booking during my lessons which sucked as I would drive over there and someone else had my spot. This happened a few times and I quit going there. The other was at a local Music shop where the teacher was really cool but I could out play him on many different things. Shame to as I really liked him.
    So now I'm looking to try something online. I noticed Musicisum which seems to be a good fit but looking for opinions on that course vs others.

    Thanks guys,

    I took myself back to school a couple of years back - Paul Gilbertís online lessons at Artistworks. Itís a FANTASTIC course, and changed my playing for the better straight away. I started at the intermediate level. More importantly, by working through it, I learned how to learn and practice better - habits that have helped me grow ever since.

    Yea, I doubt if you are a beginner, but it goes back to some simple drills that are played to a clock. Patterns, bends, vibrato are all there at slower tempos but I bet a week or so you would be right back to where you were, plus its on sale.

    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14
