Brian P. says, "I taught myself how to play guitar for over a year, until I reached a point where I needed a teacher to increase my abilities. Chris from Overtone Music has been a phenomenal guitar teacher. He corrected my bad habits, and moved my guitar playing abilities well beyond where I thought I’d ever get. I feel like I’m an actual guitarist! His song choices are hand picked to develop specific skills and is able to adapt to personal preferences. He provides excellent nuggets of information throughout each lesson that help increase playing abilities and encourages you to push yourself. He adds the right amount of guitar theory too. I highly recommend contacting Chris at Overtone Music if you want to learn or increase your guitar skills! 5/5 stars!" Read more

Tim C. says, "Steve was very knowledgeable about music and teaching, and he was able to break down topics and ideas into easily digestible lessons and teaching moments. He noticed issues with my playing and helped me correct them both by showing me the correct way to do something and giving me exercises/a curriculum to work on. A shame that I am not able to continue doing lessons with him because of a change in our schedule, but I highly recommend him to future prospective students if he becomes available as a teacher again."

Are blues guitar lessons worth it?

A blues guitar teacher will show you the essentials like:

  • How to emphasize playing on expressively
  • Ways to get confident improvising with a jazz band
  • 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 Raleigh blues guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Raleigh area.
Xavier O.
OverTone Music's Chris Bodall is a fantastic teacher, Ive been seeing Chris for many years for guitar lessons, sound engineering and recording. As a teacher he is very intuitive at keeping the pace with me. If I need help in a certain section he slows down and teaches in a way I can understand. On the flip side, if he sees something is a bit too easy for me he'll add challenging flairs to the piece of mudic we are playing. 10/10 satisfaction!
