Guitar and Grace

“I have come to chew bubble gum, and kick ass. And I’m all out of Bubblegum!” Roddy Piper in THEY LIVE

Why, oh why didn’t someone tell me eons ago, to pick up this DVD from the library on teaching myself the guitar. I’ve learned more in the past two days watching this dvd than the couple of lessons, and the months trying to learn from the awful book that came with the guitar… combined.

It’s the way the video takes you through learning the guitar which is a functional, practical approach to get to the heart of playing, rather than the soul numbing tedium of TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR that the book and the instructors send beginners through. :).

Two lessons with the DVD and about an hour of practice in, and I’m moving through chords A,G, E then back to A. Not fast yet, but getting sure.

The biggest thing the DVD stresses is 20 minutes a day come rain or shine, hell or high water. So far, so good.

The DVD is called ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS GUITAR and you can get it here. You can thank me later! 🙂 .
