Why are you playing guitar lessons?

This question is a big deal to some people! So I’ll cut straight to the chase with a few simple rules with the answers to this one! If you are a beginner, you probably answered “I don’t know” when I asked you this question – as a beginner, you probably don’t know the answers. But as you continue and refine your guitar playing you’ll probably come to feel more comfortable answering this question. If you’re an advanced player, you probably answered something a bit different to the first question – but you probably know the answers to the next two… If you’re an intermediate player, you probably answered “Something similar to the answer to the first question (probably something different)” when I asked you this question. Most beginner guitar players, then, probably don’t know what the answer to this question is…

The answer to this question will be different for everyone. Maybe you don’t understand what I know (or maybe you know and don’t care – that’s okay too)! But it’s important that you keep this question simple. I’m going to try to answer this question in 3 easy steps.

You probably know from hearing my band/bandmates or from being around other guitarists that not everyone is a fan of a particular instrument. Some of you are probably familiar with guitars that you dislike because they have the wrong pickups or the wrong string shape / position. Or maybe your own tone (not to mention how good your sound is!) has been bad since you learned your guitar from a certain manufacturer. If you’ve noticed this you should probably ask yourself the question again – to confirm that you’re in fact answering the question correctly:
