Topic: For the New Guitarist
First of all, I'm new to Chordie...What a great web site!! I read a few questions from new guitarist yesterday..got me thinking about when I made the choice of learning how too play years ago..Start out with simple songs...once your happy with your progress...move to the next level and so on...You have to learn how to crawl before you can walk and walk before you run..Playing a musical instrument is no different..I learned from watching my father ( he played the old country) when I was a kid..Fortunately, I was blessed with an decent ear for music and leaned most of the songs I know today with playing along with the record, (no CD's back then) method..Athough now I just go to Chordie!! I haven't played on a regular basis for years..hence my user name Backagain61. I just got the urge to start playing again and found out how diffucult playing can be..But..I enjoy it...my band days have long since passed so now I play for my own enjoyment..For you new guitarist..Ricky Nelson said it best in "Garden Party"..You can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself."
Good Luck to all of you!!
