Okay, remember that it was YOU who asked. Rocksmith is a computer game that uses a guitar as a controller. I guess you learn how to be able to play things ON a guitar but you certainly don’t learn how to play the guitar – how to become a guitarist. I’ve seen adverts for the […]
The Guitar Police won’t chase you down if your thumb occasionally moves away from the back of the neck. Your thumb moves around, dependent on your grip and what notes you’re trying to reach. In most cases, it will be somewhere behind the neck. Some players occasionally use their thumb to mute the low E […]
I was given a dulcimer, and it has 4 strings, with 2 of them very close together, while the other 2 are spaced wider apart. It is easy to play, but I can’t seem to learn because I’m NOT musically inclined by nature. I mention this one because it is mostly an Ozarkian instrument, not […]
You won’t forget the music theory. After a year of not playing, your physical playing skills will get a bit rusty, your calluses will disappear, and your fingers won’t move as fast and easily on the guitar as they used to, but all that will come back once you start practicing again on a regular […]
Easier to play than what? First off, your classical guitar IS an acoustic guitar — you don’t have to plug it into an amp to get sound out of it.

Pickups rarely fail, so it’s more likely something in the pre-amp. Unless it’s a dead battery, it’s not worth fixing. (You can expect to pay a shop […]
Yes I think it’s a bad idea and a waste of time. Watching videos isn’t “lessons” (some people even call them “tutorials”!). Proper lessons are best or just buy and follow a beginners’ book. There are some available that are aimed at young kids – ukelele isn’t a difficult instrument to learn.
Yes, marching band is amazing and you meet so many new friends and bonds with people you never knew before. You get better at your instrument and it only has a few downsides~ You get sore after a few days of band practice, but it is so much fun. Especially if you have nothing to […]
I’m done with this cow patty of a site, too. see ya my friends, I’ve lost all patience at this point.?
Dude. WTF can I say? I’ll just speak from the heart. The same strong passion that makes you a good musician can bring pain, and some of us know that well. And when things go wrong with you, it hurts me too. You go sit on the beach, watch those waves roll in, clear your […]
