My friend Luchie and I decided to spend our time learning how to play the guitar. She asked me if I wanted to join her on an online class called Rock House Method that she purchased on Amazon. I told her sure, it’s on my 43T list.
I borrowed my brother’s Yamaha and went to Luchie’s house to jam. This first session was very basic: tuning the guitar, how to hold the guitar, hand placement, etc. We learned how to strum, pick, and even practiced a few chords. By the end of the night we were jamming to different styles of music. From Reggae to Country. Although my left hand fingers felt like they were about to draw blood, we had a great time.
Im going to practice more during the week without Luchie in hopes that my fingers will develop some thickness and coordination. 12 months ago

I guess it was 4 years ago, if not 5. My sweet sister made me an awesome birthday present: a folk guitar. Yes, I am a newbie to playing the guitar, but hell, I am big fan of guitar music. so I thought I’d find time to learn how to play it…
The plan worked just fine for 1, maybe 2 months. Then BAM laziness overdose and yeah, I’m back to square one. However, I want things to change and I will change them! No, I don’t want to start a band and no, I don’t want to write music. I just want to learn how to play some of my favorite songs. 2 years ago
it may be cheap but im in love!!!!
i was with a friend, she tuned it for me and was showing me some basic chords. :D
I have dubbed Him Temeraire, and he shall be initiated into my service in a ceremony tonight!
The name comes from a recent dream i had. Its the first time a name has been said in a dream so i thought it was a sign. :)
I LOVE YOU, TEMERAIRE! 2 years ago

I’ve been playing every day, so I think it’s fair to say that I’ve completed the goal. I want to keep improving, but I can also see that that is something I’m going to want to do for the rest of my life, so I’m removing it from the list to make room for something more finite. Mission accomplished. 3 years ago
it’s been a few months now, and i can play a few really easy songs with easy chords.
i’ve found really good youtube channels to start, and thought it could be nice to share it:
- GuitarJamz: Marty is a really good teacher, a must watch!
- Mahalo.com YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/mahalodotcom#g/c/BE077DEF7EB33D00
if you have a smartphone, look for free guitar apps, they’re really useful. For example to tune your guitar, or having a chords index everywhere you go. 3 years ago
Need to find a good place to get a guitar (to learn on) in London. Don’t need a fandangle, bells and whistles one, just an acoustic learner guitar that won’t cost an arm and a leg. Research starts now… 3 years ago
