So have any of you guys taken any lessons on line? I was looking a maybe taking correspondence lessons from tom hess but they were kinda pricey.

I have never taken lessons before I'm just stuck in a rut and I'm not getting any better so I'm looking for options. Doe any one have an opinion of him or anyone (or anything) else they could recommend?

Yeah YouTube actually does have some good lessons.
So does Ultimate Guitar.
Kristofer Dahl (Guitar Masterclass) gives good lessons and he is really good at guitar.
You can find him on Ultimate Guitar or on his website.

You can also find Kristofer Dahl through 'video lessons' at the top of this page I think!

I've decided to give this guy a shot(tom hess), from what i have herd they seem to be worth it. I guess i really need to get a kick in the ass as I'm just not motivated to practice, and if i knew what i needed to practice i might be in better shape.

My biggest concern is that he seems to be a big metal shredder and I'm more interested in blues, or jazz but we'll see what happens.

I found this page on his site that lits a bunch of articles and audio talking with Tom Hess about playing music and thought some of you might benefit from it.

http://tomhess.net/HowToReachYourMusicalGoalsFull.aspx

I'll let you all know what I think after i have worked through some of the material.

I really need to get a teacher. I can't just sit down with online lessons because I have no motivation.

I'm in the same boat. I have not really gotten any better and i know i'm not practicing right. hopefully this tom guy will help but you should check out his site.

Most of my parctice time is spent is forums and stuff, but it's really not helping the old chops

I know this thread is a little outdated, but the issue discussed is always relevant and interesting ( what about your Hess-experience, Telecrater? It seems you never went back to tell us about it - or did you start another thread on the subject? )

I think that many of us have the same problem, that is, we can't afford a "real" teacher.
I've also tried the You Tube stuff but I don't do it anymore. First, the videos don't always have a proper quality. Second - and even more important - your practice risks being of no continuity. There's no overall plan to guide you through. A little here, a little there, a little everywhere. And you end up getting nowhere.

I think the best thing to do is to find a quality website with online guitar lessons. The best of them ain't free but I think they are worth the money. It's still only peanuts compared to the price of a "real" teacher. In addition on these quality sites you get the possibility of diving into a systematic overall practice plan to build up your skills. In case anyone in here should be interested I got some thorough reviews of some of them on my own website as a matter of fact.

If you are a beginner I would recommend Jamorama which is a splendid course with great ebooks as well as very fine video instructions.
I myself am a happy user of Guitar Tricks, the oldest online guitar lesson site on the web, but examine things for yourself. What is good for me isn't necessarily good for you.
