Yes, it gets easier on the fingers. The key is to practice regularly. Try and do an hour a day ( or even 30 mins) and you will progress well.
Are you taking lessons or learning via the web?
There are some really cool self help resources out there these days – justinguitar.com is but one of them. You cant beat lessons though so it may be worth thinking about.
Let us know what your in to and I’m sure we can point you towards songs you know and like to start on. Be warned though – it’s a long and slippery road 🙂Posted 5 years ago
don’t just play a C
I’ll be happy when I can just play a C with twanging, buzzing and impossibly contorted fingers 🙂
Music? The dream is to play stuff like early ACDC rocky/bluesy stuff. I also like mellower folky stuff – playing around on the amp settings can make it sound just like an accoustic (to my ear anyway). I just wanted something versatile to learn on.Posted 5 years ago
I’m hoping to learn and teach the kids as I go along.CaptainSlowMember
Have a look at the troy stetina rock books – metal rhythm vol 1 is a good place to start. That’ll have you ready for some ac dc riffage in no time.
I started off self taught then went for lessons. If you can, id say find good teacher and go for it. If you already know one instrument you’ve a head start. Enjoy.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks for the heads up on the tutorial stuff guys.Posted 5 years ago
I’d love lessons but realistically I’m not going to find the time for a regular lesson any time soon, perhaps in the winter though.
I’ve just poured some whisky and am going to sit down for some more strumming 🙂user-removedMember
I quite like it. Big ol’ Floyd Rose on the back. Last time I had anything similar was over 20 years ago – spent a year paying off a Kramer Nightswan. Had it perhaps two months, the front straplock snapped, tuning heads hit the deck and it snapped at the headstock. I actually cried.
These days I’ve come so far down in the world that I play my wife’s really, truly horrible paisley patterned, Tanglewood tele copy. I might go and cry again now.Posted 5 years ago
