    Guitar Basic Tools for Guitar Maintenance?

    Oh, another thing that can be really handy is a compass (like the north/south/east/west kind). I use that to determine which way the polarity of the pickups were sitting so that when I replaced the magnet or pickup themselves, I have them in the correct orientation. If you don't get them in...

    Two New Chords – E & Am – Lesson 13

    There's nothing specifically wrong with playing the whole chord on the down and up, however, if you break it up you end up adding some dynamics to your playing which can make it more interesting to listen to/play. The downstroke lends itself to emphasising the bass/lower strings and with a...

    I'd start with the "The Fundamentals of a Guitar" and knowing how to tune it. That will just leave you with working out how to play it :)

    Anxiety while… choosing music?

    Listen to as much stuff as you can. Like #EdSaid(tm) it doesn't matter what you listen to specifically. The more you hear, the more you can absorb things that other people do, and in turn find what other people do that you already do. Something I use a bit is in Spotify, there is a "<Insert...

    A Synyster Tale

    The faint smell of cinnamon was lingering in the air. How could that be ? Agmar had an affinity for using cinnamon as a reagent, but the spice had not been seen in many years.

    Putting the fun back into playing and breaking harmful mindsets

    My suggestion would be to try to express yourself through your guitar. Get some backing tracks and noodle then with the intention of expressing yourself.

    Left handed and acoustic guitar

    I thing something you might like to try is just switching between two chords, that will help with your memory and how fluid your changes will be. A couple of good ones for this are: * A minor to C * E minor to A minor * E major to A minor * E minor to A major * E major to A major (Brown Eye...

    Guitar Guitar Strap

    A method some people use is to essentially have the guitar at the same height when standing as when you are sitting. Ie. Adjust the strap so that the guitar doesn't go any lower when you stand up from a sitting position. Another thing is, when you're going from strum to soloing, that's where...
