Re: Did you take intermediate or advanced lessons?

Coaching is (pretty much) always worth it in my experience, it depends more on how much money you're prepared to spend to feed your addiction!

Re: Beginners do not buy used gear ; Read This first :

At the end of the day there are always going to be those who are too skint, too macho or just to plain stupid to take lessons...conversely there will be those who don't take lessons but approach teaching themselves in a safe, methodical way and I don't think we can sit and arbitrarily judge them on ...
