really continues to be an incredibly
And I think one of the reasons the great
attractions of the guitar is
that you can pick up the guitar up pretty
much straightaway and make music with it.
It can sound very musical.
It's not like learning a trumpet or a
where it takes a long time to get the, to
get it sound good.
The guitar can sound really nice straight
And we also have, on the guitar, where we,
we have chord shapes.
We can learn chord shapes and move them
And it can be quite easy to pick up the
guitar and play it.
Very musically, very early on.
The only thing about this, after a while
it gets very difficult to kind of break
out of these very comfortable shapes,
these very these easy positions that you
can play on, on the guitar.
And, any musical ideas that you have then
to be very difficult to, to express,
because then the guitar starts to
kinda dictate to you what it's gonna allow
you to play.
And, what I want to do, this is very
important part of my whole concept,
is to get you to break out of playing the
same old stuff.
You know, we, very often we sit down with
a guitar, we pick a guitar up.
We all do it.
And we go, I played that same thing again.
I always, always seem to play that, and
just moving on and
trying to make the guitar become a natural
extension of yourself and
your musical ideas, but really to get
comfortable with the guitar.
Not really to, to, to, to think about it.
In order to do that, we have to do a lot
of things along the way first of all.
In gaining skills and, and knowledge of of
Once we have that, then that's all to do
with making the guitar a natural part,
a natural extension of ourselves so that
our musical ideas can just flow.
So, we get a musical flow going.
Anybody that plays the guitar or, or any
musical instrument will know
particularly when we try to improvise or
come up with something new.
That the musical ideas we have sometimes
kinda get lost somewhere along the way.
We, there's not a smooth movement from
those musical ideas that
we are creating in our mind onto the
guitar and, and making the music.
And that's what I wanna do, is to try and
show you a way of, of, breaking out from,
chord shapes, stop the guitar from
dictating to you what to play.
All those great ideas that you've got,
that you want to play on the guitar, that,
somehow, are getting, trapped, along the
way make it easy for
you to, to play those things, and to,
having, you know, learning to play the
guitar as, as a, as a skill.
And also developing musically in parallel
So it's a very musical approach to, to
playing the guitar.
I really want you to, to get you playing.
Get all these real good ideas that you've
got in your head cuz we all have them.
Just get them out and onto the guitar, and
making music as quickly as possible.
Teach the world.
