I see a lot of German references, I can't see if you are - but, having said that, Wilkommen! I am originally from Namibia (guys must Google if they don't know where), now in South Africa. Namibia used to be Suedwest Afrika - as in Deutsch Suedwest Afrika, so we all have a smattering of German.
All of no consequence - I hope you will enjoy the site. Oh yes - glad you have given it up, well done
Hey everyone, as the title suggests I haven't posted new music in a VERY long while now so I'm pretty excited about this new release. I have several more tracks in the works and hopefully those won't take forever to finish
So check it out and let me know what you think
Make sure the guitar you are learning on is setup properly. The neck should be straight and the action low without buzzing. No matter what your final goal, I recommend starting on an acoustic guitar. Everything is built on that foundation.
There are many guitar lessons available from this website. They range from beginner to advanced and everything in between.
Push through the first 6 months. It gets better after that - depending on how many hours you put in per week.
Thus ends my words of wisdom. Maybe not quite words of "wisdom," but it is undeniably words - some with 5 syllables.
Hi webs80 it's good to have you on the forum! I just started playing my guitar again after several years of not playing, due to college. Currently, I'm learning the chord techniques from this forum. There is a section of how to play the guitar from this forum, the section is titled [New to the Guitar] located in orange on the homepage. And within that section is headings called... (The guitar, What is Music, Chords, Playing the guitar, Guitar Tools, & guitar tuning, etc...). It is as if you are sitting in front of an instructor, plus you get to meet fellow musicians as well. Also this forum assist beginners and advanced guitarist.
I'm glad you want to be a guitar player! It takes time to learn, but in the long run it is a great instrument to play, don't give up
Its slow here lately, but that could change. I was away for a while and recently have started to visit almost everyday. I've been a student of guitar for about 50 years. I still learn new stuff all the time.
Our host, Kirk, has some very good learning tools and online lessons. Take a look. It might help you advance in your playing and perhaps your software. I don't get paid to endorse anything, and I didn't learn using Kirk's method. I learned most of it 30 years ago, but I have looked at Kirk's lessons and method, and it is a relatively easy way to learn complex playing. I used one of Kirk's lessons for my version of finger-style "Waltzing Matilda." My interpretation is not exactly like the lesson, but it gave me a great place to start.
