Teaching an old dog, new tricks - My review of Veevar Guitar!

Teaching an old dog, new tricks - My review of Veevar Guitar!

I think I'm safe in saying that in 2018, learning the guitar is more accessible than it ever has been. With the internet providing the budding guitar player the broadest possible platform in which to learn due to the likes of YouTube, tabs sites and skype lessons for example, there's never been a better time to pick up a guitar and give it a try. 

With almost everything in life now a just click away, it's understandable to feel that attention spans are perhaps not what they once were. I found out recently that you don't even have to go to the bar at a Wetherspoons to order your drink anymore, there's an app...yup! So the notion of making a concerted effort to learn a musical instrument must seem pretty difficult to justify for the younger generations growing up when so much is 'instant' in our day to day lives. The modern day distractions are endless, so I'm all for encouraging and supporting new ways of helping people learn any instrument, which is why when the team at a new online guitar syllabus, Veevar Guitar, invited me to have an in-depth look at what they have created, I accepted their kind invitation and dived straight in! It came at a useful time, as I'm in a position where I feel I'd like to further my somewhat limited knowledge too, so this seemed like a natural thing to review and try for myself.
