Finally on Pandora

It took a long time and many hoops to jump through but I finally have the songs of my first album on Pandora. I would really appreciate it if you went to Pandora and created a "Lon Milo DuQuette"…Continue

What is everyone working on? Anything special? I'm working through understanding chord progressions (remember I'm very new to guitar)

Hello again. When you get a moment please go to my AG page and listen to my new song, "Love Me Slow".. I would really like some feedback from my fellow songwriters about this one. Thanks... Lon

Maric, thanks for the advice...I'm still so new that I really have no clue what direction to take, sometime soon hopefully I can get together with a live person who knows how to play, then maybe I can actually get an idea of what I want to try :)

It helps to have a goal or mission. Would you like to perform as an instrumentalist? Flatpick or fingerstyle? Do you sing? Do you want to do cover tunes, or write your own songs? Or maybe a little of everything?
Narrow your focus- pick a song that incorporates some of your familiar chords, and practice it until you are comfortable with it. Keep it simple. Then play it for a few friends.
After learning a few songs your goal will probably redefine itself- you may now want to play one or two tunes at an open mike at a coffeehouse, or master a more challenging fingerstyle arrangement of a favorite song.
You are not alone... some of us are just a little less lost than others.

Your dilemma is not unique... some of us are just a little less lost than others.

Question for you all: I have learned quite a few chords...what now? I know that sounds very silly, but I honestly am still a bit lost

Hi everybody,

I live in the San Diego area. I'm a hobbyist and have been playing guitar for 40 years. I have 8 acoustic and electric guitars and like playing pretty much anything. My favorite styles are progressive rock and jazz.
