How To Learn Guitar Without Breaking the Bank

July 7, 2017


Learning how to play an instrument is a very useful and self-fulfilling skill, but unfortunately it can be very costly if not done efficiently. Follow these quick tips and you'll be on your way to rock stardom while saving big in the meantime!


1. Find your equipment for cheap


Everyone knows brand new instruments don't come cheap. However, there are many ways to obtain a perfectly good instrument on the cheap. For example, scour your local classifieds listings or borrow one from a family member or friend. If that's not possible, you may be able to rent one through Lendr, which is an upcoming app that connects rental businesses and people looking to rent. 


2. Don't take conventional music lessons


In this day and age, pretty much anything you could ever think of can be found online. This includes free guitar lessons. Don't waste thousands of dollars on a guitar teacher when you can find free, comprehensive guitar tutorials on places like Udemy or even YouTube. If a hands-on approach is what you need, see if any family of friends would be willing to give you some free lessons.


3. Don't go all out


Some of the biggest and most common mistakes beginners make is that they feel the need to buy the best and newest stuff. You don't need a $1500 guitar and $500 amp, all you need is an old acoustic guitar which you can find for under $100 in your local classifieds in order to get a feel for the instrument, and if you happen to not like it, it's not too big of a loss and you could probably sell it to someone else for the same price. However, if you paid thousands at a store, you would certainly lose money selling it back to someone else and it would be a complete waste.


And there you have it! If you have any other tips or tricks, please let us know in the comments below.
