Beginners intro to Guitar

Playing guitar


The two motions required for playing guitar are quite simple to get across. The up and down right hand (for rh players obviously the reverse is true for Lh players) & the left & right if the left hand for note choice or chord or barre etc.

Dead easy right ? Wrong. The motions need to be suited to music style & your choice of guitar effects the spaces between frets & height of frets.

The up & down strumming motion is the easiest to learn first. A stiff but not too stiff forearm and a flexible wrist a good starting point. As the plectrum or finger nails pass the strings lightly press them in the direction of the sound hole to make the strings play.

That's all for now.


Nb. Keyboard is just up and down, if you don't count the Korg Joystick whamm bar invention.

Keyboards, final mixing processing.


In the last month & ten days since my last post we have finished several sessions on the Jazz, Junk, Funk & Television albums, processing the rhythm sections mainly, we chose to use the room ambience for some mixes and cut a few seconds off from the slightly longer tracks.
I sold the Dave Smith Prophet 8 on via eBay & Tom the buyer collected. Dad was in the studio at the same time & was hoping to get some free tickets to the David Bowie Musical Lazarus, but it was his last week & I don't think they're doing it again, at least last time i checked back on the web. Dieing to see it too.
Trying to keep the posts regular on here, I have a few rehearsals, one that got cancelled next week & some gigs so probably not.
