Tips for Guitar Playing (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
(This post accompanies Gab & Jam 97 Tips for Guitar Playing (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
This episode is a part of our Blog-vember 2019 trifecta of three posts a day—a video, a podcast, and a blog post. This year the focus is tips for the D.I.Y. Rock Star. We developed these methods through our own decades worth of experiences.
Take into account these tips for playing the guitar:
The BIG Take-Aways:
The biggest tip is to just play the instrument. Pick it up, crank up a YouTube How To video, and get to playing. Learn a few chords and, before you know it, you will know enough to write a song. Don’t be overwhelmed. It might make it easier if you start learning songs first, in order to learn your way around the instrument. There are a variety of ways to learn, so you should experiment in order to figure out what works best for you.
Don’t worry about the technical aspects first (notes, theory, etc.); learn a few songs, then you will learn the chords and your fretboard. If you are inspired to play, then surrender to the process and let it unfold.
Then, exercise patience and institute practice. Bruce keeps his bass and his guitar by the couch—in front of the television—so that he can practice everyday.
Finally, run your own race. Don’t worry about competing with anyone else. (For more about that, see Ep 94: http://bit.ly/Ep94BV2019blog20 ) Whether you feel as if you know more or less than others, there is always something you can learn (and something that you can teach).
If you feel inspired to play the guitar, then do it.
