An example that will help you at the beginning of you Guitar Lessons.
The Guitar is a really physical instrument.Think about the way you have to “hug” the Acoustic Guitar with your arms, the way your left hand embrace the fretboard and many different sounds you can achieve with the right hand if you play with your fingertip, your nails or with a pick.
Because it is a physical instrument, there’s no way to foresee how your body will engage with the instrument at the beginning of your music path. It can be pretty much easy for some students, a big challenge for others.

Student 2(red line) got a natural attitude so he gets a constant result during the first months. Student 1(blue line) will meet more difficulties during the first months.
Student 1 and Student 2 are putting exactly the same effort, but because Student 1 needs more time to get use to the instrument he achieves less target at the beginning.
During the 3rd month, because of tiredness or frustration, Student 1 will meet difficulties but he doesn’t want to give up. He wants to play guitar!!!
At the beginning of the Month 4, the hands get use to the fretboard, the coordination is clearly improved and the joy of the results will boost his self-confidence. In the last month he will achieve the same result of student 2.
What I am trying to say???
Each student is different. Don’t get scared at the beginning !!! Even if it seems to be hard. Awards will come !!!
