Free Guitar Lessons: Jules and everyone that plays guitar.. check out this great cite if you haven’t found it already
In between reading case law, memorizing common law, and making flow charts on giant post-it notes… I have taken up the guitar as a one of my many long term goals, that are better started sooner rather than later.
i got the A, G, C, D, E, a few of the minors and just started playing around with barre chords. The first rift I learned this past week was leaving on a jet plane. My chord transitions are getting quicker, but my strumming and timing is pretty bad. I should download a metronome app or just actually truly spend 15 minutes a day practicing. Sometime i can go weeks without playing, but after buying two cheap tuners from the local music store, I no longer have the excuse of not being able to get the iphone app to function properly.
I also got a drum pad and some sticks but I honestly only learned one paradiddle or something.. i can buzz them but I really havent used them too much. The reason being most likely that I no longer do a bulk of my reading on the couch anymore and the drum pad and guitar were always in close proximity to the coffee table.
Goals for next week, but most likely for most of this summer: Learn more songs, understand the circle of fifths, learn a few other drum exercises, and practice daily. Videos of my progression to follow… Your comments, suggestions, advice, criticism.. will all be greatly appreciated. Also.. if anyone in the greensboro area wants to make a few extra bucks and teach lessons, versus me going to the local music store and making an appointment.
