Acoustic Guitar Lessons

The guitar is a beloved instrument played by people the world over. If you’re looking for acoustic guitar lessons for you or your child, TakeLessons has you covered.

The stringed instrument relies on resonance in the body of the instrument to produce its iconic sound. Said to have originated in Spain in the early 16th century, the guitar was developed from an earlier instrument called the guitarra latina. Similar stringed instruments existed for centuries before that, including gitterns and lutes that were popular in the Middle Ages. The emergence of the modern acoustic guitar we know today happened around 1850 in Spain.

FAQ

Can I teach myself acoustic guitar?

arrow

You can absolutely teach yourself the acoustic guitar. There is a wealth of information on the internet for prospective learners, such as video tutorials, song play-throughs, and full courses. You can look up chord charts of your favorite songs and play along with them to practice. However, learning to play well is a lot easier with lessons with an expert guitar tutor. TakeLessons has a selection of the best online acoustic guitar lessons or in-person sessions with expert acoustic guitar teachers, where you can learn scales, play advanced chords, and get songwriting tips from an experienced teacher!

Is acoustic guitar hard to learn?

arrow

Acoustic guitar can be a little harder to learn than an electric guitar. This is due to the heaviness of the strings and the higher amount of force needed to play notes and chords. Eventually, though, your fingers will adjust as you get used to playing the acoustic guitar. The first basic chords and learning a few songs is not hard, and within a few months, you’ll probably be able to play and sing songs at the same time. The acoustic guitar teachers at TakeLessons can craft lessons around your specific learning needs, teaching you techniques and music theory along the way.
