If you don't love to practice you will hate the way you sound.

How Long Does it Take to Learn Guitar?

A lifetime is never enough. I am still learning.


With my method here is what I have noticed:

Start playing songs in about a month.

Able to play good enough to play with others in six months.

Be able to look good on stage in about two years.

This is based on one hour a day of practice and one hour per week lessons.
