I know you mentioned that you’re pretty busy with work at the moment, but I thought I’d ask anyway in case you have time.
I’ve been learning a bit of guitar on my own, and while I’m picking it up, it seems to be going really slowly – maybe because there’s no one to correct me when I make mistakes.
If you could let me know what your rates are and when you’d be able to take on a new student, that’d be appreciated.
I know it’s been discussed a million times, but I’d like to hear from some people with some actual experience. I’ve been playing guitar for about 10 years and I’m looking to upgrade my gear.
I’m currently playing an Epiphone Les Paul with stock pickups, and a Fender frontman amp. I play mostly classic rock, blues and metal (Metallica, Ozzy, Iron Maiden). The amp isn’t cutting it anymore as far as tone and sustain go.
I was looking at the Peavey 6505+ head (110 watts) with the matching 4×12 cabinet. My question is: how much of a difference will having a half stack make? Is it worth the extra money? (cost is roughly $1000 total) Are there other options that would be better?
Learning guitar requires a lot of hard work and patience. There is no magic trick to learning how to play. If you want to learn, you have to be willing to put in the time. It will take a long time before you are able to play your favorite songs on the guitar, but the good news is that it can be done – even by beginners.
The following techniques are used by professional guitarists all over the world. They will help you learn how to play your favorite songs on the guitar like a pro!
If you’re considering learning guitar, there’s a few things you should be aware of. The first is that it’s not really possible to learn quickly, and the second is that playing guitar is going to be very difficult at first. In fact, it’ll probably be an uphill battle for the next 5-10 years before you can play any songs you like. It may even take longer than that if you find it hard to practice regularly!
If you’ve already tried to learn guitar, then I can understand why you’re looking for a fast way to get started. The problem is that there’s no real shortcut – you need to invest time over a period of months or years to be able to play well. That said, there are some things you can do to make your journey easier and more enjoyable.
Learn from someone who has done what you want to do
I’m not saying they have to be famous or anything like that, but having a teacher with experience in the style of music you want to play will make your life much easier. A good teacher will show you how to practice efficiently so that each minute of your time results in noticeable improvements in your playing ability.
A great teacher will also give you guidance when it comes time for you to choose which
At this point you should be able to play the chords from any song. You still might not be able to play the exact chords that are in the song, but you should be able to find close substitutions.
Now it’s time to start playing something that sounds like music.
Songs are built around chords. In order to play a song, you have to know how its chords go together, and where they go in relation to each other. The chord progressions are usually described with Roman numerals; individual chords are indicated by numbers that correspond to degrees of the scale (e.g., I is 1, IV is 4). If you start with a major scale, chords I IV and V are major, ii iii and vi are minor, and vii° is diminished. A common progression in pop music is I-V/vi-IV-I-V-IV-I (or something similar), which would be C-G/Am-F-C-G-F-C in the key of C major.
A good book for learning about chord progressions is “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Music Theory” by Michael Miller. It doesn’t cover all of music theory, but it gives a good overview of what you
I’m a beginner of playing guitar. I am learning to play “Yesterday Once More” by Carpenters.
I have a few questions and would appreciate any help:
1.What are the chords in this song?
2.How do I play that chord in bar 43, it looks like a Gm7 with fingers on fret 3 or 2?
3.What is the strumming pattern?
Thank you in advance!
I think the only way to learn any skill is to start doing it. You don’t need to know anything, you just have to start playing. I think kids are better at doing this than adults because they don’t have as many fears about looking stupid or not being perfect.
And if you get stuck, go out and find other people who are learning the same thing and join in with them. They will be more than happy to show you what they know. And remember we all started off knowing nothing so everyone will understand how hard it is.
