My Guitar Practice Log May 2010

Michele's Blog

My Journey

Week One/Day One:

I just had my first sit down with my guitar.

First I tuned it, guess that's a really good practice to get into,

lol!

Next I took Greg's advice, starting with the G until I got a clear

sound

then practicing the Em, and then both in combination

I pretty much have those two down right now.

Ran into a bit of trouble with the C and by the time I got to D

my hand was aching a bit.

I mainly focused on making sure that after I fingered… Continue

Keep the baby, faith . . . er I mean keep the faith, baby when it comes to learning. It's a long road but VERY rewarding!

Yes Michele, the doctor is right. He sent also sent me to Cleveland Clinic. They agree with him. So I just enjoy what I can. With the support of my Son when he comes to see me. My first guitar was a Takamine G Series. Which I have keep. So Brian will get it down and play it. Then he likes to tease me and says "you call this a guitar". Brian has a Taylor 814 CE. We have lots of fun playing together. It is great to have you as a friend. Got to go for now. Talk later.

Michele, my house is quiet now. My Son got married 1 year ago. I lead a quite life. I have a disability. Have a rare illness. I am now in a power chair cannot walk. My doctor said that I am dying. So I really enjoy playing my guitar. It gives me piece. When I cannot sleep at night I get my Fender out and do not plug it in and play it as long as I can.

Hi Michele It would be great to be your friend. I have played for about 2 years. Sometimes I will play for about 4 hours and my fingers will feel tender. But it is well worth it.

Welcome to a whole new world. Like the 'real' world there will be a little pain and frustration, and a whole lot to explore, but don't give up. The effort is *so* rewarding. Always remember this: You CAN do it!

Michele,
Welcome to the Acoustic Newb group. There are players of all experience and skill levels in the group, and some teachers too, which is great because we newer players can learn from the more experienced ones as well as from each other. I see from your first post that you are already getting some good advice. Have fun!
