Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I start giving guitar lessons?

A: To start giving guitar lessons, you must first possess the skills and knowledge needed to provide instruction. Once your teaching skills are developed, you can advertise your services through online want ads or by building your own website that highlights your teaching techniques, experience, and pricing.

Q: Is playing too much guitar bad for you?

A: Playing too much guitar is only considered bad for someone if they injure themselves. For example, overplaying the guitar when you first begin can lead to sore, blistered fingers; however, blisters and calluses are common among guitar players. Holding a heavy guitar for extended periods may also lead to aching shoulders and back pain.

Q: Does playing guitar make you more attractive?

A: Playing the guitar well can help build one's confidence, which in turn may make someone more attractive to others. Some surveys have shown that men and women find people who play the guitar approximately 90% more attractive. However, whether someone finds another attractive is a personal feeling, so there's no scientific proof that playing a guitar boosts one's attractiveness.
