I am a 61 year old man getting ready to retire and want to learn to play. I am expecting my first Washburn (C104SCE) to arrive in about a week. I know nothing about music theory or the guitar but want to learn. I have done some searching for a good teaching program and I am leaning towards the eMedia Guitar Method program. Has anyone had experience with this program of learning or can you recommend something better as a learning tool? Anxious to get the guitar and get started, thanks for any help you can

Dear George:

    I do not know anything about the teaching method that you told about, but I remember when I first learned, it was very helpful to take guitar classes offered by community colleges for adults in the evening.


Hey there gfwooden...

The Hall Lenard teaching books are a good start... They go from basic right up to theory and method...

I agree to also tack some lessons... I prefer the private lesson out of someones home as it usually cheaper and just as good and even better if you jam for free at the end... I find them in the paper of internet... But I don't pay up front until I have had about a month of lessons to assure reliability ...

Rock on...[8D]

George l Salas:
Gf, Wee3 is correct. some of the best new student instruction can be found through your local community center. If they don't offer anything , check out your local music store. They usually have someone with experience that will be willing to teach you for a reasonable fee.Good luck

The thing about lessons is that you should not learn bad habits that have to be over come later. Community colleges are very good.  Lots of people learn how to play (wrong) so they continue to use bad habits.
