If you played, would you do this?

I've been playing for almost 1 year. I took lessons for around 9 months. I was progressing at a slow but reasonable pace. Then work and family got in the way and here I am not having picked up my guitar in probably 3 weeks. I cancelled my lessons because i was paying by the month and because of work was only making one lesson month towards the end and was basically paying $100 a 1/2 hour lesson.

My brother-in-law sings and plays in a bar band. I was thinking about asking him for lessons if he would agree to let me pay him by the lesson, not the month.

So here's my question, if your wanna be rock star brother-in-law approached you and offered to pay you $25 for a 1/2 hour lesson every week, but would only pay for lessons actually attended, would you do it or would you insulted?

I don't see any reason not to ask him. See where the conversation goes.

Would I do it? Of course. Would I take his money? No.

...just don't let him borrow your guitar pedals.
