Are country guitar lessons worth it?

Country guitar lessons are worth it because they teach you how to play like the top country music stars in Nashville. Many playing techniques are specific to this musical style only, so you'll want a teacher who knows this genre well.

In country guitar lessons, you'll learn:

  • How to fingerpick and flat-pick with the right techniques
  • Country licks and the various uses of the major pentatonic scale
  • A range of sub-genres from bluegrass to modern country pop

What's a good age to start country guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start country guitar lessons is 6 to 10 years old. Otherwise, they can start whenever they're big enough to hold the guitar and press the strings.

Adults of any age can pick up some country guitar skills with a little bit of help from a teacher and plenty of practice.

How many country guitar lessons do I need?

How many country guitar lessons you need depends on what you want to do with your guitar and how much you're willing to practice. If you're just looking to play a simple song, you're looking at about 2 to 6 months of weekly lessons.

However, if you want to strum like the pros, it can take 4 to 10 years of dedication.
