Now there’s a question, why DO you want to play guitar?

For many people it is to emulate their musical heroes. They hear them play and they realise that nothing can match them. To be able to learn to play guitar as half as good as them is something many people can only dream of.

Is Jimi Hendrix the man that inspires you. An absolute showman. A left handed man who taught himself to play with an upside down right handed guitar. You could watch him on tv with the sound turned down and marvel at his obvious genius, but why would you want to do that? It’s the music we want and it’s him we want to emulate.

Who else inspires you? Eric Clapton possibly. A man who still makes great and innovative music after nearly 40 years in the music industry. What about Dave Gilmour? If ever there was a band to listen to in a darkened room, Pink Floyd would be my choice every time.

I’m sure you could tell me a dozen more legends that you regard as geniuses that inspire you every day to learn to play guitar or improve your guitar playing.

Many people pick up the guitar with every intention of learning and emulating their heroes every day and many of these go on to learn and play very successfully. These people have obviously been inspired by something else other than just hearing their heroes. They have had good teachers that have made their lessons inspiring. They have also had the time to spend on lessons that fitted around their busy lives and commitments.

The problems occur when you can’t find an inspiring teacher or you cannot find the time to get your lessons around your busy lives and commitments and that’s when many people start to lose interest. They become frustrated and start to find that they pick up the guitar less and less.

This is where the internet comes in to it’s own. You can find everything you want at any time of day or night and be inspired by the right teachers in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you, even if it’s 3am.
