Topic: My guitar lens

Hey, Chordies!

I've created a <a href="http&#58;&#47;&#47;" target="_blank">page on beginning guitar</a> - what <a href="http&#58;&#47;&#47;" target="_blank">Squidoo </a>calls a <i>lens</i>.

But there's no way I can see for me to gather feedback on the page. So if anyone here is interested, would you <a href="http&#58;&#47;&#47;" target="_blank">drop by and take a look?</a>

I'd appreciate any comments you have. Specifically, I'd like to know what other questions or topics I should address.

Thanks very much, everyone!

Re: My guitar lens

very nice except that i would say that accoustic rule.

sure they are harder to play and some begginers get frustrated but in the long run playing an accoustic first helps

its always easy to switch from accoustic to electric but hard to do vice versa

Re: My guitar lens

Well, thanks for the input and the page views, guys!

I understand spaminator's point about accoustics, but I say that if you are comfortable on an electric, you can adjust to the higher string tension of an accoustic. When I moved from accoustic to electric, it took me a while to stop squeezing so hard and learn to just touch the strings. I haven't played a lot of accoustic since I switched, but it wasn't exactly rocket science to go back.

I think that it is more valuable from a beginner's standpoint to both enjoy the instrument and to succeed at playing it than it is to guarantee a clear path to accoustic playing. And I think the ease of electrics along with their other advantages (silent playing, range of sounds) makes them the clear choice for beginners.

So, I understand the accoustic side of the debate, but I'm standing by my original recommendation.

I'm pretty happy with the lens as it is, so until I'm ready to make some recommendations about recording, I'll leave it alone. I'll be watching this thread, though, so if you have suggestions, please post them!
