You can identify hammer-ons and pull-offs by a little slur or arc between two or more adjacent notes. It can take a while to get to where you can quickly interpret this, but once you are exposed to a few musical situations like this you will get the idea.
Changing guitar strings is really not a complicated task, but it is for some reason intimidating to new guitarists. Intimidating or not, it is an easily-acquired skill that any guitarist should have.

A GuitarTricks.com membership is a good option for beginners, though many of the lessons are for intermediate to advanced guitarists as well. Regardless of skill level, guitarists are sure to find plenty of lessons to keep them busy. One of Guitar Trick’s biggest advantages is that they are one of the few websites that offer a large variety of licensed song lessons from artists such as the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Maroon 5, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Nirvana, and KISS amongst others.

I’ve observed Beckie teaching French Horn and Trumpet. She is extremely capable and, especially with her younger students, very nurturing and encouraging. She is very knowledgeable and clearly explains the techniques and principles she is teaching. She is also very patient.
The order of guitar strings from bottom to top in the playing position is from highest note to lowest note and thinnest to thickest. The numbers on the packages describe how thick they are in inches. A set is labeled by the thickness or gauge of the smallest string.
The previously discussed I-IV-V chord progressions of major triads is a subsequence of the circle progression, which ascends by perfect fourths and descends by perfect fifths: Perfect fifths and perfect fourths are inverse intervals, because one reaches the same pitch class by either ascending by a perfect fourth (five semitones) or descending by a perfect fifth (seven For example, the jazz standard Autumn Leaves contains the iv7-VII7-VIM7-iiø7-i circle-of-fifths chord-progression; its sevenths occur in the tertian harmonization in sevenths of the minor scale. Other subsequences of the fifths-circle chord-progression are used in music. In particular, the ii-V-I progression is the most important chord progression in jazz music.
I have a 60 year old Martin O15 in excellent condition. I have medium gauge D’Addario strings on it. Should I be using light gauge strings instead? The neck has no signs of warping, but I don’t want to be putting undue stress on it.
Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.
