should a person start when learning to play the guitar?
is a common question for a person considering to learn to play the guitar.
Let's see if we can answer it! The first
thing is to buy or borrow a guitar that is in good playing condition. Below
you will find the basic chords most commonly used for bluegrass. If
you don't like bluegrass, this is still the best place to start. All
of the basic chords are the same but the styles start to branch off from
that point. Compare Blues and Bluegrass in the July
The picture at the top is
using all of the chords at the end of the neck. Once you have
learned them, you can use the same positions to play in other chords just
by placing a capo on different frets. Example: Using the G
position, if you place the capo on the 1st fret, you would be playing
in A flat.
2nd fret = A
3td fret = B flat
4th fret = B
5th fret = C
6th fret = C sharp
7th fret = D.
Any further down the neck
and you would be too high for a good sound. This
process works on all string instruments.
What are mp3 files?
Every computer file has a dot something on the end.
This file determines what kind of software would be used to read the
information. A standard CD played in your stereo system uses .wav
files. The internet uses .mp3 files for music because the same
information is much smaller and can be sent across phone lines more easily.
Some copying of music can infringe on
copyright laws, so consider this when downloading music
from the internet.
|One thing that every song has is an ending. Most songs
end with a banjo run so let's look at one of them. The picture
to the right is one that I use most of the time.
There is a hammer-on where the two threes are. Slide from
the top 7 to the bottom 7. Everywhere else that numbers are
doubled, pick them at the same time.
