Taking The Time To Find The Most Effective Blues Guitar Instruction

When starting out to look for those ideal guitar lessons, most people would go to the all-powerful ‘G’, and ‘Google it’. Nowadays more searches for all kinds of things are carried out on Youtube’s video site, in fact it’s the second most used search engine after Google itself. Like Google, the number of items shown for a keyword such as ‘blues guitar lessons’ is formidable – what is the best way to search out the lessons right for you? Youtube guitar lessons include all manner of formats and teaching levels, both paid and free of charge.

Some of the big boys in selling blues guitar lessons have developed a very slick selling format that use many forms of psychological tricks to get you to pay. Barely a beginner? That’s OK – we’ll have you performing like a professional in 2 weeks. Know a few chords and can strum a bit? We’ll take your playing up a notch. Experienced player? This instruction will transform you into Eric Clapton, and you get the picture. One of my favorites is the ubiquitous advert ‘The 3 Major Mistakes That 90% Of Guitarists Make”, or something of that style, which is pretty difficult to resist, it it has to be said. In reality, playing above average guitar takes application, commitment and time. Naturally, the learning process could be made quicker with clear-cut instruction and precise blues guitar tabs.

Guitar tablature is the basis of excellent guitar lessons. It needn’t be extremely complicated in the least, with just elementary notation indicating finger movements and chords. Some tab just goes way over the top, trying to convey the feel and ambiance of authentic blues picking, which it can’t possible do! This takes us to the next characteristic of excellent blues guitar lessons – the teacher must be able to play the music to a high level (and the tablature should precisely represent what he does.) Guitar tablature alone isn’t enough to translate that delicate pause, or the thumb strike that is slightly behind the beat when needed to accentuate the lyrics. Of course, the tab can show that a single thumb stroke should be damped with the hand’s palm, but can’t tell us that the damping movement itself is never constant, but changes in sound as the force of the palm on the strings is continually being changed according to the flow of the song.

There’s no need to hurry when searching for any instruction, of any kind. The Japanese have a saying ‘a year spent doing little else but locating the right instructor is time well spent’. That’s about right. You don’t need to take a year for your search, but choose carefully and ignore the hype. Don’t expect to improve in just a few short days weeks, take it easy, don’t beat yourself up and most importantly, enjoy the music and the travel.
