Guitar
    #3094088 - 09/05/04 06:13 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I got a guitar about 5 years ago and have tried playing it a few times but i end up
just giving up and stoping. I think it would be awesome to know how to play but
it seems too hard.
All this came about cause ive been reading alot of thread with pics of guitars and shit.
What do u think is the easiest way to start playing good songs. I tyred learning the
notes and shit but i dont know anything.
I dont wanna learn how to play mary had a little lamb is what im trying to say.
Peace.

take some formal lessons. they will help you understand music somewhat as a theory. and practice your notes. practice until you can play any note anywhere on your guitar.

Thats sad man, I am about to hit my 5 year mark, and at this point I am amazed at what I can do :laugh:

As far as playing SURE, I could tell you some easy song to learn, but you just have to DO IT.

When I started my fingers hurt, I coulndt keep a the beat , it was even hard to hold the strings down :frown:

But I stuck with it, grined through the pain, and these days I am SO HAPPY that I did.

I NEVER had a single lesson in my life, I am learn non standard tunings from friends , but everything else I learned myself.

Now that I am at year 4 I am getting into a zone where things just come naturally, and my solos actually sound GOOD :laugh:

EFFORT, thats the ONLY thing that will help you learn, just get over your frustration and keep playing, good luck, 5 years from now, you will be glad you did. :wink:

learn how to read tabs. In a few weeks you could play things like "smoke on the water," "iron man," or "purple haze," or "aenema." The main thing is make sure you have a decent guitar. If you have crappy gear, you won't sound good and it can be very discouraging. Once you learn how to play a simple rock song, you'll get hooked. Easy as that!

"practice until you can play any note anywhere on your guitar"

Lessons are a good idea, but I can do that without them,but I still think I am missing out on something by not knowing chord theroy(i.e. all by ear)

exactly, music theory is probably your next natural progression. once everything starts sounding good to YOU, and feels good to play. the next step is theory.

I really dont want to have to take lessons. It would be hard fort me to go. Im just so busy. Id rathere learn on my own if possible.
I have books teaching notes and stuff but the practice songs are lame.
I was wondering if any of u knew where I could learn how to play some good songs.
or songs easy to play for beginers. I Need something easy to learn fisrt. But it has
to be kool if u know what i mean.
i dont know what im trying to say.
i could strumb(i think thats a word) like like 8 times a party of sweet dreams.
U might know what part.
the part right before he says "sweet dreams are made of these"

I want to sell it so i can buy a proper drawing table.
But I don't want to sell it because I want to groove.

I just don't play it enough :frown:

they run side by side lengthwise, then once a week swap them, there on hooks so it's pretty quick.  Just can't get enough under one, which why 2 are run side by side lengthwise.  Seems to work well enough if you've seen the pics  :cool:

seeds are easy enough to be had, order them online, most seed banks ship to the US, though it's ilegal, they still do it.  Pick strain that works best for his needs and send a money order out.  :cool:
I wouldn't get to crazy on the expensive strains until he knows he can germinate and grow them alteast somewhat though.

I always have been SO jealous of you Iluan :wink:

Currently I have some really good genetics.... Magic crystal-tall version, Magic crytstal-short version, ......
Jacks Suprise, AND Jacks Suprise x Afghanica  :laugh:

All my seeds were VERY cheap(i.e. medical cannabis club :wink:  )

Anyway, like I said, VERY JEALOUS, and so desperate to move :frown:

But I know once I get some good mother plants going , it wont be long until I can finally do a couple of things I have been waiting to do for years.

A.Never buy pot off anyone again EVER :laugh:, and

B.Go show my all the worst pot dealers what GOOD Cannabis is(clean, flushed CURED :wink: )

I get so sick of buying cannabis, I cant do it anymore, I cant hand somegoof money and think "gee I hope its flushed", and when the Cannabis is top quality the prices go through the roof, fuck dealers.
