can learn the guitar if he takes lessons for about 2-3
years. And he can be a good player after taking
the lessons for that long.
I think 6 years of private lessons should be enough
Funny thing, my teacher said to me there are some
students that actually dont practice at all... lol
I am fortunate to have my teacher cuz he is old
and near retirement age, and he teaches with
a soft attitude and nice as well.
he never told me how much to practice but
I said i do 45mins and he said that is fine.
Piano lessons for 2 years
Private guitar lessons since 8-3-10
with teacher Patrick very proud

I never would have thought I would still see this thread four months after I wrote it. But I am glad that it is having its intended effect.
No matter what - keep pushing hard and good things will happen. On the guitar and in life...

I once played a cat and got all scratched up. I should have waited until it was made into guitar strings first.
Jell-O curtains are the best of both worlds. Just don't eat the curtains.

I agree on MR JWELLS.
He is the best encouragement around!
If we had an ASK JWELLS section it would go something like this...
Q- do you think I will ever be able to do this?
A- Yes, with practice
Q- How come I don't seem to be getting any better?
A- Because you need to practice more!
Q-Why are my fingers so sore?
A- Because you need to practice more to toughen them up
Q-Why is Steve so much better than I am?
A- He has years of practice on you?
Statement: Now stop with all the questions and GET TO WORK
IMO..MR JWELLS ROCKS :D
He is definitly a "where there is a will there is a way" kind of guy.
We just need the will.
Great post like this one and encouragement from those who have traveled before us are a reminder that it can be done.
Thanks to all who are with me and "The Groups" on this journey :D

If I could I would send it to everyone who has gotten the course.
We think so limitedly sometimes, myself included. We think that just because we can't do something today or after a few days of effort that it is somehow beyond us.
We so easily mentally associate our present situation in whatever endeavor as a static and permanent situation. We assume there is no positive movement just because we don't see dramatic initial change.
And, deep in our spirits, we assume that there are two types of people --those who can do these things and those that can't. And we willingly lump ourselves into the group that can't.
What would happen if we could get above our debilitating natural short-sightedness and deep in our spirits put ourselves in the "those that can" group in whatever area we are trying to master.
I think we would be, not just pleasantly surprised, but utterly and profoundly amazed at how much we can actually accomplish toward goals that we initially surmised unreachable.
Thank you for an eloquent reminder of this. I couldn't agree more.
Your friend and teacher,
