Every now and then I get asked how long it will take to learn guitar. If Im feeling cheeky I might say "How long is a piece of string". Mostly Ill ask "How much do you want to know?".
I know what people are trying to ask, mostly how long until I could play rhythm guitar in most songs. The problem is everyone is different. Not just different in background ability or flexibility or dexterity but also in the amount of time they can or want to realistically put into the instrument day in and day out.
I have seen people take 6 months to get most chords, Ive seen people take a couple years to get most chords. The good news is that even without regimented structure you will always improve. Always. With structure and push and guidance you will always improve faster.
So without meeting you and instructing you for a while theres no way I can tell you how fast you could learn anything. But, I can tell you how you can improve faster. Play the material given AND find some stuff outside of that you enjoy.
This method combines what you NEED to improve on and to ENJOY the benefits of what you have learnt.
How long will it take to learn? The answer depends on you. But hey, itll be a fun ride along the way!
Till next time,
