laugh.gif cool hamster!


Regarding the topic... I think I am self taught in general as i make up my own practise system and workouts. BUT I looked some great video lessons on the internet, learned some great licks from older musicians, listened some great music and picked up a lot of phrases... So the influence I had durign my own practising is big. Man is social being and is influenced with a world around him. So when i say i am self thought i generally say it in terms of "not went to music school".

I think this is probably one of the best answers to the original question, and probably sums up "self taught" as being someone that has "taught themselves" with the use of books, vids etc.
I understand why some may say this is technically not "self taught" as you`ve used other peoples influences, literature, but as you said there, you set your own practising systems without the aid of teachers in a music school or one on one tuition.
You cannot read a book and instantly be able to play what is written you have to "teach yourself", surely that is "self taught"? someone made a comment earlier in the post that this can be said of one on one tuition, which yes is true, but that instructor in front of you can show you and instruct you on the spot how to phrase the note etc, there is a huge difference doing it alone.

I think with reference to GMC I now have that tuition, I am able to interact with the instructors and they can advise etc, so now for me personally I can say that up till now "I am largely self taught but now recieving some tuition from GMC" smile.gif

I don't really care if I'm self taught or not, because the only thing that counts is that you develop some skills, and eventually turn out a sweet guitar-player regardless of the extent of tuition.
I was teaching it to myself for 2 years before I signed up here. I got some advice now and then from friends, but I'm sure I got used to playing some things the wrong ways, and therefore I occasionally struggle with some small but very bothering bad habits. I think one should care less about how one's learned playing guitar, because you can recieve all the tuition in the world and still suck badly, it doesn't come by itself, you DO have to struggle to achieve.
