Anyone Can Learn To Play Guitar

There are just a few things you need to learn to play guitar, and among the most important ones is a guitar. It does not have to be the most expensive or even one of the better brand name models, but if you are going to learn to play guitar it should be in decent shape with what is referred to as good action.

The action of a guitar is when the strings can be pressed against the fret board without a lot of difficulty and they do not create a buzzing sound when held down. The notes should also sound the same regardless of where on the neck they are pressed. For example, when you learn to play guitar an E note should sound the same when made on the second fret of the fourth string as it does when the first or sixth string is played open. Yes, the octave will be different, but the note will be the same.

Additionally, when you learn to play guitar it will not make any difference if you learn on an electric or acoustic guitar, classic, full body, six or 12-string or even three-quarter size guitar. The notes and chord positions will all be the same.

Learn guitar by ear

My online guitar lessons are going pretty good. I can study at my own pace, but more important, on my own time. Even if it's 2am in the morning.

I found this link that helps me learn guitar by ear and it's absolutely wonderful. Check it out.

Stupid Bumper Sticker

I saw a bumper sticker today that read:

"Religion...keeps the poor from murdering the rich"

What the heck does that mean??

Is it a crime to be rich? Is it the rich's fault that some are poor?

Hey, dude, in the white Pontiac with the wierd bumper sticker, if you're poor, it's not a rich person's fault. This is America, the home of the greatest economic opportunity in the world. If you're poor, don't blame it on the rich. Get off your lazy butt and get another job. Or, get off your butt and learn a new skill. Or, get off your lazy butt and take a night class. But don't blame your poorness on the rich. Nuff said.
