How to Improve Your Guitar Playing

These So many guitar players want to improve their guitar playing but ignore some fundamental things.  Here are some tips that are easily missed by inexperienced players.

  1. Learn the notes on the fretboard
  2. Learn the sound / texture of chord types
  3. Learn how to hum and play simple melodies
  4. Learn something new every day
  5. Listen to all styles for inspiration
  6. Play music not theory, it might be clever but if it sounds terrible, why bother?
  7. Learn to play slowly and in time
  8. Learn each song in a couple of keys if possible
  9. Learn to memorise songs
  10. Don’t compare yourself to others or criticise

These things may seem simple  but they are things that are highly worth considering

Country Blues Guitar Scales

Acoustic Guitar Country Blues players:  Thought I’d republish this doco of Scales which I put together a couple of years back.  The fingerings of some are little unusual, and my reasons for doing them this way is intentional just to create a little more interest and snapping the mind out of its normal patterns.  How you apply them is the next step, I will write a simple article about that soon.
