Agreed Andy...PLUS you can almost any kind of lesson for free on Youtube

Google "lead boxes" and you get what I think this poster is getting at. If you know how scales work across the strings, you have half the battle won.

Do wish the poster well, but I'm not sure he has more to offer than what you can get for nothing

If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

John, you know nothing about guitar, or anything else. Stop pretending you do.

A real guitar teacher is light years ahead of youtube videos. Yeah, you can learn something absolutely. But a teacher taking you from first step, to greatness, is not going to be done watching youtube, What if you have a questions? On youtube there is no structure to the learning, its ambiguous and needs to be pieced together. Plus I sometimes og on youtube to find out how to play a song, and they are wrong half the time.

I can see your resistance to this poor guys idea. Stop pretending the world agrees with you. On this, and most things, you are clueless.

You are right Dom. 40 years of playing guitar has taught me nothing. 20 plus years here at JPF has taught me nothing about writing.

And no teacher will take you to greatness. That is done through many hours of practice and playing with others...just like it always has....that and your own passion to learn and advance yourself in the craft

And I was really agreeing to the quality of the offering in my post above.

CFD seems like a great guy, but if you really believe it was an effective "commercial", then you did not see what I saw

But you do seem to have "learning" down pat. It is all about someone feeding you in a structured environment... putting all those ambiguous things together. It is not at all about thinking for yourself, trying this and that, experimenting, failing, critical thinking,...

If you already play guitar and know your way around it, ie how the fret board works, scales....then google "lead boxes" and you will be well on your way. If you don't neither is hard to understand. When it comes to scales, forget about all but the major and minor scales...and recognize there are more "modes" to scales. Leave all that behind for now and just memorize the two primary scales. Also know how the fretboard works.... and knowing how barre chords work is very helpful.

BTW that "lead box" approach was taught to me by a working musician back in 1976. Lo and behold...major and minor scales look the same as your cross strings...and simply sliding up the fretboard to start the riff puts you in a different key. From there it is simply repeat and practice. Put a CD on...turn the radio on. Just do it

Now granted, some people need the discipline imposed by a teacher and CFD could be awesome for someone who does.

But I expect many who come here can figure things out based on what they know and want to learn

And if you want to know anything about lead guitar...ask Colin Ward

He is wailing in the background of this one...which btw FD, I wrote .....just putting some proof in the pudding.

Depends what level. If you want to learn the basics fast, you can do youtube. As a kid playing garage rock, i had no use for music theory, i wanted my teacher to show me to play songs. Hes listen to the tape and try to figure out what the player was doing...in retrospect he got it wrong more often than right. But it did help me develop my own ear, i started hearing things on the record and play with it

and if you notice, most teachers use youtube as a primer. You can certainly do lessons online.
But many of Satrianis students became pros themselves. Anybody can be on youtube, not everybody knows what they are doing.

For basics, yeah, but I can teach the basics too.
