The guitar is easily one of the most well liked musical instruments available today. However, if you’re a beginner you definitely need some solid guitar lessons in order to understand the fundamentals.
The problem for most people is that investing in guitar lessons can be very pricey. This is why more aspiring guitarists are looking for free lessons that they can take advantage of to become better at playing the guitar.
One of the first places you can start looking for cost effective lessons is through the newspaper. It’s not uncommon to find guitar instructors in the classified ad section advertising their lessons for free. Many times these instructors want to give the first few lessons free before they offer a price for their services. Contact every guitar instructor because you could luck up and find an ex-guitar player or teacher who is willing to teach you the guitar voluntarily.
Thanks to the web it’s even easier these days to find some great beginner guitar lessons for free. Go to “how to” websites like youtube and you’ll discover video series that will go over at least the basics of playing the guitar.
Not only do you have “how to” websites like youtube but you can also do a google search for guitar forums and you’ll find a great amount of information in these forums. Simply sign up to the forum and begin posting questions related to what you want to learn and in a short time you’ll get a response from somebody on the forum.
I’ve been on a few of these forums myself and many times you don’t even have to ask a question because someone has already asked it. All you have to do is type in your question within the search box and you’ll see that a number of members have already posted a question similar to what you’re looking for. I highly recommend forums if you want to get free guitar lessons because a lot of the members on these forums are professional guitarists that really want to people learn to play this great instrument.
Finally, take a trip to your local library and pick up one of the books they have there on playing the guitar. Thanks to the internet a lot of folks have forgotten the library even exists. The library is still one of the best places to get information on anything, including the guitar. Rent one of the books in the library that focuses on learning guitar notation or guitar tabs since learning to read music is one of the biggest challenges for beginners.
These are just some quick tips to help you find free guitar lessons, and I’m sure there are a ton of other methods you can utilize to get lessons for free.
