You definitely should go to a teacher for a while. The point of seeing a teacher is to become self-sufficient to the point that you'll be able to teach yourself, and not question your technique of learning. Good luck with that.

Best way indeed.

My sister had lessons, and she's good... I bought an electric guitar and- well... I have an electric guitar lying around the house now. :P

Lord, someone else with more patience would appreciate it so much more!

Lessons are good for a while, but really they can only teach you in the style they play in (in my experiance anyway). So have lessons for a while to get the basics and some more complex stuff out of the way, then just play with yourself (pardon the pun), you will find your own personal style of playing much easier this way.
Whenever i play at gigs other drummers find it hard to share a kit with me because i have developed a very strange kit setup what with being practicaly self taught, other drummers spend ages turning it round to how proper drummers SHOULD play lol!

I would go for lessons, you'd probably find it easier... I know I would've, but my mum would never pay for them so I taught myself....


Get lessons

^ That's a cool and funny idea... HAHAHAHAHAHA. :D I hope it works!!!!

I've checked out some of the drumkits in Oxford Street in London... FUCKING EXPENSIVE... Like the normal ones are like... £2000 - £3000... Like, 2nd hand ones are, £800... The guy told me, who was serving me. I gave him this shocked look and he was like, "Yeah... But it's worth it." I hope so... :O

I was taught piano to Grade 5 level and then tought myself to play the guitar to an OK level.

Had a dabble with the drums and its bloody difficult! I would go to a tutor first. I haven't got the time myself!
