What Makes Electric Guitar Lessons Unique?

You can take beginner guitar lessons on an electric guitar, but we recommend you start with the acoustic variety to build your hand strength. Once you learn guitar at the basic level, you can begin to excel in your electric guitar lessons. These lessons focus more on different tricks and techniques designed for the electric guitar, as well as freestyle shredding, and learning the equipment for live performance.

 

Electric Guitar Equipment

Electric GuitarIf you’re interested in learning the blues, heavy metal, lead or other various guitar soloing styles and methods, you should consider purchasing an electric guitar. Electric guitars are designed for quick soloing and lead method patterns for accomplishing the right sound for styles such as rock, metal, country and jazz.

When purchasing an electric guitar, play-ability and tone are very important. Typically, the more you spend the better the guitar, but the most important factor is whether or not the electric guitar can stay in tune for long periods of time. This depends on how much craftsmanship went into designing the guitar or whether the guitar luthier used quality parts during manufacturing.

We recommend you start with a Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson Epiphone Les Paul, and your instructor may also have other recommendations. Both are affordable and are of excellent quality and value. You’ll also need an amplifier.  We prefer the Fender Princeton Chorus or the Line 6 Spider Jam. Don’t forget to purchase strings, picks and a metronome with 440 tone for tuning, a guitar strap and a guitar instrument cable. To make it easier, we’ve added these to our online store powered by Amazon.com if online shopping is your preferred method.

  • RECENT STUDENT FEEDBACK

    I tried three instructors before calling The Music Teachers Network. None of them hold a candle to our new teacher. She is on time, the kids love her and I'm comfortable with her in my home. Thank you.

  • RECENT STUDENT FEEDBACK

    My 5-yo daughter Paige has really taken to her new teacher. What a difference a slight increase in pay makes. We were so happy with our selection and highly recommend this service for music lessons.

    I remember taking music lessons when I was in prep school. Now, after many years of working and raising a family - I'm finally back to it. It's never too late for music!

  • RECENT STUDENT FEEDBACK

    I'm just so happy someone we liked actually got back to us. It seemed like most of the people we wanted from online profiles never returned our calls. We had no idea it could be so time consuming to find music lessons. Wish we'd come here first.
