Solidwalnut's Lesson Guide

Here's a guide to my lessons here at GfB&B. This will be helpful so all lesson titles can be viewed on one page and in their categories. If you can't find a particular lesson, just send me a message here at GfB&B. Note that if there isn't a link on a lesson, then it isn't published yet but is in process. I'll keep this list updated. Let me know if you find a missing or broken link.

The first lesson to view is Playbook for the Beginner and Beyond. I've broken down the learning process into five different areas. My reason for this is so you might have a roadmap to follow. This lesson contains specific suggestions to practice specific skills -- not just suggestions on my lessons but suggestions of lessons that will help you in each of these areas from every instructor here at GfB&B. All of the Area lessons below follow in the footsteps of this roadmap.

The five areas are:

Area 1...The mechanics of making chords

Area 2...The basic chord formation layout of the neck of the guitar

Area 3...Learn basic rhythm and strumming (or fingerstyle) techniques

Area 4...Learn basic music theory

Area 5...Add musicianship to your playing

Musicianship skills are built in each of the 5 areas. A guitarist really needs to begin learning about and adding musicianship skills to their toolbox every day. And it begins with the most important skill of all: listen.

Be sure to check out the special lesson/article for Area 5 Playbook for Beginners and Beyond: Adding Musicianship.

If you need some tips on learning how to play your favorite songs, be sure to check out the article Learn to Play Any Song.

For tips on audio mixing, be sure to check out the Tips for Audio Mixdown series. It can give you ideas on how to listen to songs critically and so you can make them sound as you intend to in the final product.

All the best,

Steve
