My second guitar lesson was held this week. Thankfully, I did improve. I did make some simple mistakes, which John says are easy to rectify, which is good to hear. I am still enjoying it. I have some chromatic exercises to practice this week too. The classes are 30 minutes long, but, they feel like 2 minutes. John is a great and patient teacher, which I appreciate greatly, he seemed happy enough with my progress. I do feel a little silly sometimes, as all the other students are children (or at least the ones that I see). I know adults also use this Music School. This week was also marked by me buying more plectrums and a little plectrum holder.
I had my first official guitar lesson this evening with a lovely guy named John. I have always wanted to learn to play guitar, but, other than buying a guitar and trying to learn on my own, I have not been to successful. My intention is to sit the Debut Grade Rock School of London Exam as soon as I am ready (hopefully by the end of the year?). I will need to practice every day (more than I did as a child learning either Piano or Recorder, just imagine the noise!). I am also learning online from the very knowledgeable Andy Guitar https://www.youtube.com/user/andycrowley. Hopefully this will speed up my learning and get me playing something that sounds like music sooner rather than later. I opted for real life lessons over self teaching, as I have tried self teaching, and I discovered that I am one of those people who needs to be kept accountable otherwise I might come up with excuses. However, if other people are involved, I will get it done, as I do not want to waste their time.
