There is certainly a lot of advantages in learning how to play the guitar without the need of any personal instructor but just your reliable PC. The internet is already known for being a source of so many kinds of information, including those about guitar playing. Lately there is a growing number of websites and blogs that are dedicated to providing tutorials in playing the guitar. This means one can actually become an expert guitarist without the assistance of anyone other than the computer that is right in front of him as he plays the instrument.
When you go to a music school and enroll in a class that offers guitar lessons, you really have no choice but to follow the schedule imposed by the instructor or school itself. With online video tutorials on guitar playing though, you do not have to worry about schedules that may seem unrealizable. This is because you are the one who is master of your own time. You can determine which part of the day you can practice best. Once you have set up your own schedule, you can then follow it strictly. Actually, strictly following your schedule should not be hard since, it is you who made it after all.
You can only ask your instructor to play again a certain chord succession only once or, at most, twice. If you ask for third repetition, your instructor would certainly complain. A human instructor does have a limit when it comes to repeating the routines for his students. However, it so happen that guitar playing is also taught best when the routine is done again and again until the learner actually gets the hang of it. A personal computer on the other hand would never complain. The video could be played in a loop so that you not have to replay it too often.
Guitar playing as taught on the internet is not really much different from one that is taught in a studio. However, software that is meant for the tutorials can make the entire learning process fast. This is another edge that online training on playing the instrument is indeed a huge advantage. There are already quite a number of people from all over the world that have learned how to play the guitar just by using the internet. Of course, while watching the training video, it is very important that the learner also has a guitar with him.
