Joe N. says, "I was a self-taught guitarist with moderate skills looking to take my skills to the next level. Being able to write, play, and understand the why behind a guitar solo was one of my goals. I have completely met and surpassed all expectations with my guitar lessons with the Wolfman. He has the teaching experience to give me the tools and knowledge to elevate my guitar playing, and overall musicianship to a level that makes me feel confident playing rock, blues, and jazz. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitarist, Wolfman has a program to get you to where you want to be and then some. Week in and week out I was given new tools, theory, and overall experience to bring to my own music and create new and more complex music than anything I have ever written before." Read more

  • Mastering the 12-bar blues progression and blues scales
  • Learning unique techniques like string bending, slides, and vibrato

What age is best to start blues guitar lessons?

Children can start blues guitar lessons between the ages of 6 to 10 years old at the earliest. The best time is whenever they can hold the instrument easily and have the hand strength to press on the strings.

Adults of all ages can learn to play blues guitar with the right instruction and regular practice.

How many blues guitar lessons do I need?

The number of blues guitar lessons you need all depends on what you're aiming for and how long you practice. Beginners typically learn how to play a simple song in 2 to 6 months on average. However, mastering blues guitar takes at least 4 to 10 years.

How do I find the best blues guitar lessons near me?

If you want to find the best blues guitar lessons for you, then look at teachers nearby on the Lessons website. You can also check out guitar lessons at your local music shops. Before you choose a guitar teacher, remember to do these things:

  • Check prices from 3 different teachers and ask what they'll teach you.
  • Read what others said about them on Google and on the Lessons website.
  • Ask for a list of other people they've taught to see if they're good.
  • For kids, ask other moms and dads what their kids say about the teacher.
  • Get a plan on paper about when your lessons will be before you start.
  • Pay a little at first to see if you like the teacher before you pay for a whole month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a blues guitar teacher?

To find the best guitar teacher, you could ask these questions:

  • What type of music degree do you have?
  • How long have you been teaching blues guitar?
  • Can I have one lesson for free to see how I like it?
  • What are the ages of most of your students?
  • Which kind of blues guitar and equipment should I buy to practice with?
  • Will you give me some finger patterns to practice at home?
  • How much should I practice at home between lessons?
  • What books should I get, and do you know where I could find used ones?
  • How many different blues guitar techniques can you teach?
  • If I'm struggling with learning, can you change the way you teach me?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long is each lesson?
  • Can I have a copy of our class plan, agreement, and how much it costs?
  • If I have an urgent problem and need to cancel, what happens?
  • Can I choose some songs that I want to learn?

Reviews for Salem blues guitar lessons

Steve took me from knowing nothing about guitar to being able to play simple songs in only a few lessons. He taught the fundamentals of notes and chords with equal emphasis on the fun of learning songs. Steve’s lessons are engaging and rewarding, he is prompt and keeps to schedule very well.

I first took lessons with Bob Wolfman back in 1994, after spotting a flyer near my school. I called him on a whim, seeking someone who could adeptly teach both technique and theory, especially in blues and jazz guitar. Bob was a revelation—his fingers and brain worked at lightning speed, and I always left each lesson feeling enriched with new knowledge. After graduating, I stopped taking lessons, but the pandemic prompted me to reconnect with Bob for online lessons. Decades later, I am thrilled to find that Bob's charm, personality, and talent for guitar instruction haven't changed a bit. For anyone aspiring to become an accomplished, well-rounded guitar player, I wholeheartedly recommend Bob. His expertise spans over the years and adapts with time, making him an excellent choice for both beginners and seasoned players. You definitely won't regret it!

Karen Sarkisian was an excellent pedal steel guitar teacher for our teenage son. She provided terrific, high-quality instruction, offered a nice balance between challenging and supporting him, and also jammed together, making the lessons a lot of fun too! We were fortunate to find Karen, a highly sought steel player for local gigs, as it was not easy to find someone who not only plays but also teaches this instrument. We highly recommend Karen!

Ed O'Brien is a terrific teacher! I've been taking lessons from him for a few months on the ukulele and would recommend him to anyone who want to learn a new instrument or improve on an old one. Highly qualified and very patient. Give him a call--you won't regret it!
