Welcome to the 3rd instalment of the Guitar Domination Podcast. In this podcast, we talk about finding a guitar teacher, and more specifically, if you should actually get one, how you find a good teacher and what to look out for in a teacher.
I also discuss why it is so important, in fact critical, to try out different teachers to get the most from your money. Guitar lessons are expensive and a big investment so it is so important to get the right teacher.
I also talk about my horror story from when I got a lesson from a certain unnamed teacher in my area so listen out for that and let me know if you have had a similar experience!
One thing I also mention is why you should still learn on the internet even if you do get a teacher and why having a teacher and learning from other resources is the best of both worlds. In fact, in the previous podcast, I explain three ways to speed up the learning process on guitar and this is super important if you don’t have regular lessons.
If you have considered getting a teacher or are struggling at the moment, this podcast can help you save a lot of time and money, so ensure you give it a listen and leave a comment letting me know what you think! I love to hear from you all!

I just listened to the 2nd podcast and I thought it was excellent. All these things I know and haven’t wanted to do because I wanted to learn everything about the guitar yesterday. I never want to slow down. I never want to repeat over and over. Now, I think, these will be important steps to my learning. I’m probably not going to stop trying to learn something too hard for my level, BUT, I am going to start doing it more carefully and slowly and perfectly. Good, really good advice. Thanks. The guitar community’s generosity with their advice is pretty overwhelming. I’ve never had an experience like this with so many people trying to help others learn. It’s very impressive. Thanks, again.
Thanks for the comment, Sandy, and it is my pleasure to be able to help. You are right, the guitar community and specific parts of it are great. When I started learning, forums, before they went out of fashion, were really helpful.
As for learning better, you are absolutely right in the fact you should keep pushing yourself, but being slow, careful and precise is definitely the way forward.
Many guitarists want to learn purely for fun but, unfortunately, that means they treat their practice in a laid back, not very focused manner whereas a little precision and focus goes a long way as it makes playing 1000 times more fun!
Good luck and hope to hear from you soon on here!
Really enjoying the podcast, lots of great tips for me as a beginner. I currently have a cheap and cheerful acoustic, I love playing it but will soon want to be upgrading, with approx £200 budget. Would you consider doing a podcast with tips on what to look out for when buying a guitar?
Hi, Paul, no problem. Glad you enjoyed it and the podcasts are going down well. I`m actually writing a book on this subject and yeah that is a great idea. I`ll be sure to do a podcast going through some of the most important tips from the book nearer to when it is out.
Cheers for getting in touch
Cool look forward to it
