Name your guitar! I recently met a guitarist who told me she named her guitar "Serenity" and another who said his is "Change", for me "P.J." (Peace & Joy) comes to mind ~ what positive feelings/emotions/does your guitar bring to you?

Slow down and take time each day to play your guitar. We get busy with work, school, our home lives, etc which can often times keep us from playing our guitars, since playing guitar is fun and relaxing let some of those things go and pick up your guitar ~ take time to smell the roses, a.k.a. play your guitar!

The market, and particularly the web is flooded with guitar stores that promise to sell "Spanish guitars" or classical guitars made in Spain. Some of them even have spanish names but the reality is that they are made in China, Indonesia or some other far east countries. That should not be a problem as long as you know what you are buying, where is coming from and accept they limitations. Some other stores have a mix of products,…Continue

Focus on one picking pattern at a time, embrace it/own it/live it until it's rote. By giving your attention to learning one picking pattern at a time you will greatly increase the "I get it factor" because your muscle memory will be instilled solidly ~ then you'll be a pickin' and a grinnin'!
BTW...Jessica, a KPBS workshop attendee (January 2013), so embraced picking pattern #1 that she wrote and recorded a song. Check it out at this link. Way…Continue

If you have sore fingertips (a good problem), try icing them. It's a simple way to help relieve the inflammation and soreness ~ besides, icing your fingers means you're blazing those strings!

Find another person who plays guitar and ask them to show you a skill that they know. Learning and trying new techniques from other guitarists is a great way to expand your playing, plus you'll have fun ~ guitar brings the nicest people together!
