Should I Take Guitar Lessons - A Beginners Guide

What You Need To Know
Technically there's no such thing as a self taught guitarist. Figuring it out yourself you still going to need books and videos. Trying to understand all this information on your own is quite a challenge. Lessons really cut through and the student progressing and understanding with immediate effect.

Should I Buy An Electric Guitar or An Acoustic Guitar?



The easy answer is:
If you want to be Jimi Hendrix then an electric guitar.
If you want to be Ed Sheeran then you'll need an acoustic.

What Will I Be Learning
First thing any guitar teacher will show you is chords.
All songs are made up of a progression of chords.


The chord box shows you where to put your fingers so you can strum the guitar.








Do I Need To Read Music?
Many of the greatest guitarists do not read music. This however doesn't mean that they using just pure natural ability.
Learning chords and scale shapes is how many rock guitarists learn to play.
Many guitar tutors use guitar tablature to make it easier to learn your favorite tunes

David Thibault - Young Elvis Impersonator




Elvis Impersonator's have a bit of bad name. Many of which are not taken seriously figures of fun in white jump suits and 70's sunglasses.

A young 16 year old David Thibault from Qubec has racked up millions of YouTube views with his rendition of Blue Christmas. In all honesty at first I thought he was miming to an Elvis record.

Well worth a watch

http://www.youtube.com/user/jamesrundle72

Big Weekend
Artist: Tom Petty

D//                    //                        //                       /
There's some friends that I know living in this town and I've come far to see them.
D //                //
Gonna track em' down.
       A           //                                D
 They live in a brick house    painted white and brown.
D//                   //                       //                 //     
Left a tip for maid and I packed up my guitar, dropped my key on the counter, rented a car.
       A              //                        D
Gonna hook up with em' later and go hit the bars.


          G    D   A         A          G    D     A     A

( Repeat the same pattern for the next Verses)

Well I may shake your hand but I won't know your name. The joke in your language don't
out the same. There's times when I'm down and there's nothing to blame.

I need a big weekend. Kick up the dust. Yeah a big weekend. If you don't run, you rust.

I can work, I can travel, sleep anywhere, cross every border with nothing to declare.
can look back babe, but it's best not to stare.

I need a big weekend. Kick up the dust. Yeah a big weekend. If you don't
run, you rust.
