Blues Guitar Instruction



Blues guitar instruction comes in many forms.  

The trick for you is to figure out the best way you like to learn the guitar.

Many learners don't actually know how they like to learn. (They know more about what they don't like)

For most learners this is not easy to figure out.

The trick for your guitar teachers is to figure out how best to teach you the way you like to learn.

For most guitar teachers this is not as easy as it sounds.

(They know how they like to learn but not how you do.)

A pat on the back.  

Patient encouragement.
