How Long Does It Take To Learn Guitar?

One of the most common questions I hear from guitar students is this, "How long will it take to learn guitar?"

After going through the journey myself and helping hundreds of guitar players to improve quickly, I can tell you one thing! This question is not just irrelevant, but it's also one of the questions that's hampering your progress on guitar.

The simple reason is that, there's no fixed answer for this question, as this is subjective to a lot of things, and I'll try to arrange a few in order of importance:

  1. Your specific goal with guitar and music

  2. You present skill level

  3. Do you have a coach who understands your skill level and goals clearly

  4. If you do have a coach, does he/she have a precise roadmap to follow to get you to where you want to be

  5. How well is your training program structured, and how aligned is it with your goals and so on...

There are many more things to take into consideration, before you find that one magical answer to this question... But before you do that, I want you to ask yourself another question! Are you ready?


Have you or anybody else seen or heard anybody who's successful at anything, ask or provide an answer to this type of a question? Think about it!


Instead of asking yourself this limiting question, ask better questions to get better results and progress faster. Questions Like:

  • What do I want to achieve in my guitar playing in 3 months from now?

  • What will it take for me to get there?

  • What will be the immediate actions I need to take to get there?

Now include these actions in your daily practice. Before you know it, you'll have made more progress in the 3 months than you set out to make. Once you reach these small milestones in your playing, start creating a larger blueprint for 1 to 3 years, and start breaking these down to immediate actions.

This will ensure that you keep progressing rapidly and consistently in your guitar playing and musical skills, while enjoying the journey.


If you are stuck, and don't know what goals are right for you and how to go about achieving them, schedule a trial lesson where I'll tell you exactly what steps will get you to where you want to be with guitar.
