Do you think you're too old for games? Think again!

Guitar games are great for getting you to learn several guitar concepts, that you would otherwise have to learn by mending over a book and studying/memorizing. And no, they're not just for children, adult guitar students use guitar games all the time as well.

Testing and improving your guitar knowledge with games

For example, think about how you would learn the notes on the fretboard. You need to learn the very basics of course, and if you have a fun online game, where you can even compete against other, you'll be sure to learn the notes much faster than just trying to memorize everything.

I'll list several great guitar games for all to enjoy in this article, and if you know of any more, please leave a comment and I'll add it to the list after reviewing it.

With online video guitar lessons becoming a perfectly viable alternative to personal lessons, the cost of guitar lessons have significantly decreased for beginner guitarists. While personal guitar lessons cost between $30-$50 per 45 minute session, you can sign up on a number of high quality websites and receive online lessons for next to nothing.

Online or private lessons?

Online or private lessons?

The result is evident, huge savings for beginner guitarists. Lets take an example, where an absolute beginner starts taking weekly lessons, and does so for 5 months. At an average rate of $40 per session with a private guitar teacher, expenses add up very quickly. The accumulated price of these guitar lessons would be $800.

In contrast, you can get super high quality online lessons at a fraction of the cost. Be careful, as there are a lot of bogus sites out there charging money for really bad content, but the following sites offer top notch, high quality material:

One of the most famous guitar tutorial sites is Jamplay. After reading this JamPlay review, we decided to conduct a complete evaluation of the site, to determine the way in which guitar students can profit using their tutorials. About 2 hours into our Jamplay review, we were certainly pleased.

JamPlay.com

JamPlay.com review

The site is absolutely enormous. They have tons of lessons in all difficulty levels, addressing all styles. Jamplay also has several practical guitar tools, such as the online metronome, backing tracks, chord library, etc.

Browsing through the video lessons is also super easy, which is great, since simply finding the thing you would like to learn from the thousands of tutorials they have could alternatively be a real pain.

I just read a review of Blues Guitar Spotlight from the makers of Learn and Master Guitar, and decided to write a post about it since I know from experience that Legacy Systems (the makers of the courses) always brings out very high quality educational material. They just released a new DVD based lesson package called Blues Spotlight, which promises to teach beginner guitarists how to play the blues.

There aren't too many blues guitar courses out there. I've had a look at some of them just to test the market, but can say that the majority won't deliver its promises. There were always holes in the material, sometimes the lessons were totally unstructured, meaning that they didn't build onto one another, which is obviously the worst way to learn.

Having taken a look at the lesson outline of the Blues Guitar Spotlight course, I'm pretty sure that it covers the elements which a beginner will need to really learn the blues. What are these elements exactly?
