Is a Guitar Teacher worth your money? What is a good guitar teacher and do you need one? Those are some of the things I hope this video can open a discussion on.
I am also going to talk about what I think a good guitar teacher is and what the role of an instrumental teacher is. By now anybody can find songs, scales and chords with Google or YouTube, but is that really what you are paying for? Or is it really something else?
The discussions I see on this are really lacking a lot of information so I thought this video could be a good starting point.
