My students can expect to steadily improve their technique, theory, chords structure, improv, song list, understand of the language of music, writing abilities, and find music to be fun rather than a chore. We can focus on an intense practice regimen or just learn songs together. No pressure at all, we’ll go at whatever pace you’d like to.
The first thing that you need to know is how to read chord boxes. These show you where to put your fingers on the fingerboard to play chords. The six vertical lines represent the six strings. The string on the furthest left is the thickest string (E). The two lines at the top of the box represent the nut (the plastic, bone or metal piece that the strings go through on the headstock) and the rest of the horizontal lines represent the frets.
This is an app by guitarists for guitarists and whether you’re using it for chords to just get started, or you’re uploading tabs and training your ears, there’s something here for everyone. I cannot recommend this app highly enough.
Ready to impress your friends and family with your lead guitar skills? Check out these guitar tips from Dallas, TX teacher Mike E… A student new to lead guitar recently asked me, “What do my leads need?” I told him they need four technique tricks. 1) Skiing, 2) Crying, 3) Dog Whistles, and 4) Double Dribbles. I didn’t use technical terms. One of my best guitar tips is that playing music should be an expression of emotions and feelings. It is not just which notes are play
Proceed from left to right. Tabs are read like sentences in a book – read them from left to right, across the page, dropping down to the next line only when you’ve reached the end of the previous. Play the notes and chords in sequence as you read them from left to right.
I believe that if you want something, you have to go for it. I encourage my students to pursue their passions with music and reach as far as they dare imagine. I act as a resource and a guide, helping my students to find their way to their music goals.
In this week’s guitar lesson I’ll show you to play a lead on top of a jam band style jam track (think Allman Brothers). You’ll learn to do a lot with just 5 notes out of the major pentatonic scale. The first half is all major pentatonic, the 2nd half is minor pentatonic. MP3 […]
roughout the lessons and during practice. Daniel’s motto isn’t just to teach Guitar but to really involve the student in all aspects of learning guitar, getting the student to engage in the pieces, teaching them how to properly warm up before and after pieces, and how to stretch and approach difficult pieces by allowing mental breaks and keeping the environment light and fun.
Sing what you play and play from the heart. As a Guitar Performance graduate from Musicians Institute, I was fortunate enough to be taught these ideas from guitarists I considered to be my idols; Jake Eckert (Dirty Dozen Brass Band), Rick Zunigar (Stevie Wonder) and the late Ross Bolton (Al Jarreau). My approach is to provide that unique experience to my students and inspire them to achieve their goals. Through my 15+ years of experience as a session guitarist and instructor, I have had the opportunity to perform and record with some of the top musicians in Los Angeles, while

Listen to the A minor 7 chord as you strum it, checking if it was clean and clear or muted and buzzy. It may take you some time to build up the coordination and muscle you need, but if you remember to stay on the tips of your fingers and come right behind the frets, your chords will sound clean.
Spent some time yesterday evening with the latest Neo Classic Model of FGN Guitars playing and comparing my vintage, semi- and non-vintage ‘Mighty M’ heads . An…d the best one is… all of them… same old gear-nerd-problem 😉

So in this video guitar lesson I’m going to show you some of the most common ways you might play this dreaded B chord. First we will look at the barre chord forms, and then some “easy B chords”, or at least easier B chord forms than you might use if barre chords are beyond your current ability on the guitar. Then you can choose from these B major guitar chord charts the best one to fit your situation.
Learn the strings. The best way to start is by becoming familiar with the strings on your guitar and how they relate to your fingers. To make this easier, we’re going to number them both. The strings on your guitar are numbered like this:
The B barre chord forms are the best sounding options, but now I’m going to show you a couple of easier alternatives. For some of you these B chords may not be easy, but they are certainly easier B chord options on the neck of the guitar if you struggled with the B barre chords.
