Benefits of Learning to Play Acoustic Guitar from dvds
By far the biggest benefit to learn to play acoustic guitar on your own is the freedom to practice when ever you want, and watch your lessons when ever you want.
One frustration I used to have when I took private guitar lessons was that I wanted to learn quicker then the one lesson a week I was taking. When I first purchased an acoustic guitar lesson dvd I found that I was able to watch two or three lessons a week and practice more. This allowed me to learn faster, and get an even better understanding of what I was learning.
