Classes often needed

Hm. Had a good e-mail exchange with Guitar Cousin.

Softening of my position from my earlier post.

How about: "The lack of formal classes shouldn't be seen as an impediment to acquiring knowledge or a new skill"?

So, rather than: "Gee, I wish I knew more about how cars work. Too bad there's no car-repair classes nearby" -- you go buy a junker car for $500, put it up on blocks in the back yard (or in the garage), buy a few (used?) books on car repair and the anatomy of cars, and start tearing the sucker apart! And when you get stuck, buy the local mechanic a few beers in exchange for some tips and advice.
