Guitar lessons are an invaluable source of income. This is especially true if you aren’t a teacher yourself. You may be able to earn some money on-the-side through guitar lessons, which are not required to earn you a living, but can help earn you money.
If you have a school, you may be in a position to earn a living off your guitar lessons. But it helps to have a solid education and, most importantly, a good teacher to guide you. When you look online for guitar lessons, Google “schools” and you will find a fair amount of information about schools who pay students to teach; however, these sites focus primarily on online courses, not traditional school curricula.
For your own free, beginner lessons, you are at your own risk. You’ve got nothing to lose right now and you could potentially be stuck with little money.

What is finger picking?
First off, what is finger picking? Well, finger picking is a technique used to pick up songs such as Roxy Music’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” According to Wikipedia, this finger picking technique was invented by the songwriter Paul Simon.
In order to learn how to create a finger picking technique, you need to understand how to count music. When you play a song, you play a note and record it at the top of your keyboard. You then move your hand up and down the piano’s scale. That note is called the “key” but in real life it is called the “note number.” You count in intervals, like four semitones, then you play the same note multiple times, like seven semitones. When you do this, the “key,” or the note number, is the number of semitones you play.
When you get good at this, you can actually learn a lot of songs by simply memorizing the key and notes. The trick is to learn to count notes in a way that you don’t get confused by the scale. So once you understand how to count, all of your fingerpicking will become easy.
