James Taylor Gives Free Acoustic Guitar Lessons Online

Commentary by Stephen Downes

So, will this work at all? Are online guitar lessons, even if they're offered by James Taylor, a good idea? I guess my view on this is, they can't hurt, and they may help some people to learn how to play. Which, on balance, is a plus. Dan Colman writes, "Now let’s get this out of the way: The jury is still out on whether these video lessons will offer serious guidance or not. The first video offers a somewhat detailed primer on … caring for your fingernails. And it comes coupled with a short lesson, “Little Wheel” in e minor, that is decidedly short on pedagogy. More lessons will be coming soon though. Sign up for JT’s email list, and they’ll ping you when new videos are posted online."
