\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe main categorization of style refers to the actual music genres such as rock, classic rock, bluegrass, country, metal, etc. Style choice isn't necessarily something you have to decide & then stick with for the rest of your life. A lot of people will pick up a style, decide it's not for them and move on to something else.
\r\n\r\nEach different genre provides its own challenges and obstacles. If you feel that you are comfortable, try out a few lessons from another genre and see how you can handle it. You might find yourself humbled a bit!
\r\n\r\nWe recommend starting out with the genre you are most familiar with. This will get you a good start because you will be motivated & excited to learn. Once you've developed a grasp of that style, then you should attempt to master other styles. Once you are able to become fluent in a number of styles, the techniques & music influence from each style will mesh into your own personal creations.
\r\n\r\nMost peoples' style choice tendencies are based upon their current listening trends. Once you've gained a good grasp of your starting genre, we suggest browsing the different genres with an open mind. You may think bluegrass is boring if you're a heavy metal fan. However, once you learn the scales, progressions, and the formation process of the music you might develop a new appreciation for it. From there you might enjoy not only listening to it, but playing it.
\r\n\r\nWith DVDs, books, and other music lesson websites you aren't given a wide range of instructors to choose from. Often times you will be stuck with one instructor and limited to learning only his/her style. With our model, you can browse multiple instructors across different genres/styles and get a taste of everything. Ultimately, your guitar playing will be the result of dozens of peoples' styles mixed.
