Re: Need your opinion

Your own website is a better place to keep things together, since you have all the control of formatting, designing and presentation. While I agree with you, I don't think that it would make sense to create a 5000 words posts on a forum since it's much easier to post it on a blog and link to it. I d...

Need your opinion

Hello, friends. I recently posted an article on how to learn to play solos for beginners. I covered all the topics that I believe are important and included all kinds of tips and advice that I know of.

Re: Self-Taught vs Private Lessons

I'm a self-tough guitarist and I also work as an English tutor part-time. I can tell you for sure that no teacher in the world can teach you unless you want it. And if you really want to learn to play the guitar - the amount of information available on the web is more than enough. The rest is up to ...

Recently I came to realization that different techniques require different ways to hold a pick. So if you constantly adjust the way you hold it it's very unlike...

Re: Need help deciding on my first guitar

I wouldn't recommend an expensive guitar. As a beginner you are good as long as your guitar's action is not too high and it holds tuning longer than 2 hours;)
Just google something like cheap guitar and read reviews before you buy.
a $200 guitar will work great for you.
