That jamaicaca reject Shalimoo is going to waste the hard working tax payers money on learning a new instrument?
Sad world.

I got given a guitar last week.

If I strum the strings for a couple of hours will I learn to play it on my own?

In this case it was the victim's private teacher the lead guitarist of our band who was purposefully slowing progress in order to extend the time so he could keep charging. The victim finally burst out in a fit of anger and demanded to be taught a song. I think it was after I laughed.
I've never heard it put that way hey teacher is it in instructor and not a victimizer and a student should not be a victim.

I agree. Unfortunately, humans are predatory-especially when there's money involved.

which is why you have to control them. you have to be specific about what you want otherwise it'll take forever for you to learn anything

True! The worse thing we can do is assume that professional means ethical and let our guard down. It can prove very costly.

If you want to learn you dont need lessons.
The only way to learn a musical instrument nowadays, Is to get the internet out of your house. Get your tv out your house, throw away your phone.
And just practice the guitar for entertainment instead.
Its not easy to do, and takes a long time and alot of hours to do it.
I live with someone who will be 17 in April...so no internet, or TVs would cause big trouble!
But thanks :)

<quoted text> you can come become very proficient with 15 minutes a day of practice. if you decide to take lessons I would recommend that you tell your instructor to teach you a song otherwise you might spin a long. Of time just learning scales and doing exercises.
But don't you need to learn the fundamentals before putting them together to play a song?

so what you have to do is take control of a class you have to walk in and tell your instructor that you want to learn this or that song. if they refuse to do this and try to teach you some other message then move along. a good instructor will get the song become to exercise and break a song up into pieces so that each piece of a song becomes part of an exercise if you can practice daily.

no depends on the message that you want to use when I was in California I have an instructor who is teaching me to play ribbon in the sky. he would using a piano should have paint by number type method. very simple and effective. however I must admit you will not play in the classical Manor. another words your hand positioning me know exactly be correct. but he just want to play music and have fun well that's the way to go.

The more I watch videos of these classical guitarists, the more unrealistic it becomes!
I'll take things one step at a time, I'll find a tutor locally who I feel comfortable with, and take it from there.

If indeed they discourage you then watching them will prove counter productive to your goal.
