Playing guitar is about muscle memory. Whatever the practice material, whether it be a scale, arpeggio, guitar solo, melody line or chord progression etc…repetition is the way to learn it. For longer parts an even better way, is to repeat just a small piece of the melody line or chord progression, then learn the next small piece, afterwards piecing them together. Think of these songs as puzzles, the fastest way to move forward with them is by learning small sections and putting them together. Through learning guitar melody lines, you’ll be playing notes of the scales they’re derived from. Here’s an example of the guitar part from I’m so sorry – Imagine Dragons, and the scale that it comes from, the E minor pentatonic scale.
Music is one of the most amazing parts of the human experience so why not play it? You can! Like anything else you have to just jump in and see what happens. You are capable, it only requires practice (which is relaxing, meditative, spiritually rewarding/super fun), and proper guidance. This is where I come in. I’ve been doing this full time for a long time and I really love what I do. I will definitely be having fun during our lessons, so there’s quite a good chance that you will too.
You don’t want to take guitar lessons from this guy right? He seems smart but I think I’d be drooling on my desk in his class. Oh and by the way, you’re first guitar lesson is also FREE! So no drool and more money!
