Having a teacher would obviously be your best bet but failing that I think the Simon Powis membership would be good for you and would teach you a lot from the basic fundamentals onwards in a nice progressive way. You could always just pay for 1 month to see what you think before committing to a yearly membership.SRP wrote: ↑Fri Jun 02, 2017 2:29 amHi,
Would you share why you started with Matthews and then switched to Powis?
Will need to choose one of these as I could not find any other online courses that seemed appropriate and offered a structured program. I've been exploring their offerings via refundable one month subscriptions (which expire as refundable in about 3 weeks.). Are you able/willing to venture a guess as to what might be the relative proficiency of a committed new learner at the end of the first level for each (Level 1 for Powis and 1F for Matthews' Woodshed)?
I'm a senior (74) just starting my first musical instrument with no musical training aside from a few half hour lessons. I've chosen the classical guitar despite being told it is not the easiest to learn and be relatively proficient. Am interested in learning to read music notation and to be able to accurately and musically play pieces with difficulty ranging from (my guess) upper beginner to intermediate. One benchmark might be to do well with Hal Leonard's 17 Finger-picking Standards.
