Tutor Or DIY?
What’s more important, a good tutor or to DIY? A good tutor can show you insights that will take time off your learning curve. A good tutor can show you things that will reduce struggle and provide better enjoyment while trying to figure things out.
On the other hand, no matter how good a tutor you acquire, it really comes down to you. How committed you are to getting better. How dedicated you are to accomplishing the goal of being a well-accomplished guitarist. How much time and effort (practice) your willing to put in.
The guitar or any other instrument for that matter is not a quick get the final result now kind of thing. It’s something that will improve your life over time. It’s something that will give you back exactly what you give it in return. The guitar is an instrument that will allow you to build motor skills, better understanding & allow you to discover things about yourself that you never knew existed.
But of course, that’s only if you put in the practice. So in answering your question if it’s one or the other, I’d say practice. Even if your not sure what your doing, if you stick with it long enough you’ll get there. A good tutor can just help you get there faster. But it’s still up to you.
Your dedication. Your commitment to your goals, & your practice schedule. You must truly have a desire to want to learn the guitar. Your goal will provide your destination, your plan will provide your action-steps & your desire will provide your daily motivation. But you must have all these in place to keep pushing forward along your journey.
You can do it! But you must stay focused on the tasks at hand and persist through the obstacles. I’d love to tell you it will be a walk in the park, but I wouldn’t want to lead you astray. I will tell you this though, you find the right learning method or tutor & I guarantee you will have fun along the way. With the right guidance, there will be no stopping you.
