learning to play guitar??

hi, i just got an accoustic guitar and now need to learn to play it, can anyone recommend any good books which they know are supposed to be good or they themselves have found very helpfull. i'm a total beginer and have looked at a few books which didn't seem helpfull, anyother tips or advice would be very welcome. thanks

Re: learning to play guitar??

If your trying to jump in and play songs right away your doing the wrong thing. a book can aid you but just get a chord chart and practice over and over again, once you get your chords down and can play them without duds and flow from chord to chord move on to your scales. Also once you have your chords down you can start to learn a few basic songs and make up your own stuff. GOOD LUCK

Re: learning to play guitar??

Everybody wants to learn by themselves from books these days. The frustrating reality of it is that learning from books is slow and much harder than guitar should be. You don't always understand exactly what the author means at times even with the best books. My recamendation to you, as someone who taught himself, is do a couple of months with a good friendly guitar teacher. After that if you really want to do it alone things happen a little faster and you have a good foundation. Good luck

Re: learning to play guitar??

Chords are made up of scales. I'd learn the scales, at least that's what I'm being taught first. We're just starting into chords and they make more sense. Bones is right about starting out under a good instructor. What I haven't seen yet is how long it takes to program a "fine motor" skill (which is what fretting strings is) into your unconscious mind: 3,000 - 5,000 repetitions = lots of practice & patience.

Re: learning to play guitar??

i dont want to buy books i need sum good websites that teach the strings and stuff. HEEEEEELLLLP!!!

best guitar to learn on

i wrote the post below but forgot to say that i also have acces to an ellectric guitar, what is best and easist to leann on seeing as i have no experience????
p.s i've only just started and am already having trouble with chords, are these easier on an eletric guitar??

Re: best guitar to learn on

Well this is what I would tell you, seeing as you mentioned you have an acoustic, I'll tell you this right now, acoustic guitars generally have heavier gauge strings (unless they're nylon) and higher actions, meaning they're harder to play on and do more damage to uncalused fingers. I guess it depends on what style of music you're into, I would pickup a mexi strat to start on, seeing as they're cheap and decent guitars, set it up with 9 gauge strings and a low action. It should be easy to bar the strings and depress them, as well as move quickly along the fretboard with very little ripping of the fingers. However this is all preference, you may want to go with heavier strings for the beefier tone.

I believe is not possible

OK, I'm gonna try to explain a couple of things.
I had gtp 2.2 demo which lets you print but with some annoying letters on the tablature. There's a crack for this version that removes that letters but this is possible because the "print module" is on the demo itself. What I think is that the gtp 3 demo version doesn't have that "print module" (note that doesn`t let you print anything) so I guess that such crack is not possible. Maybe we can someday get the full version!!

how do I get the laquer off my guitar boddy

I am trying to remove the laquer from a strat body but everything that i have tried on it so far has had no effect whatsoever, does any know how to do it

Re: how do I get the laquer off my guitar boddy

The only way I ever managed was to sand it off by hand with fairly course sandpaper then use finer paper to restore the woodwork.

Re: how do I get the laquer off my guitar boddy

: I am trying to remove the laquer from a strat body but everything that i have tried on it so far has had no effect whatsoever, does any know how to do it

Might be polyester. Try 60 grit then 100 then 220.
Paint doesn't like sticking to a surface much finer
than 320.

im doing a solo and cant find an easy song

hi im doing a solo in front of my whole school and theirs 10101909 students so think about it HHHHEEEEELLLLPPPPPPP MMMEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALL COMPUTER TABS.......

All tabs that you find on the internet are wrong! If you are looking for an exact tabv on the internet, you won't find one beause they don't exist. They are only close interpretations of someone. I you really want to learn the song, learn it by ear. It will probably be just as good and you areactually training your ear!!
Don't say you can't or you haven't been playing long enough, becasue my friend (who has been playing for two months) can pick up most songs played on the radio after only a few minutes of listening. Internet tabs are gay, because they are wrong. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!! Learn buy ear or buy the damn music from the store if you refuse to beleive that your ear is capable of picking up songs!!!!!

Re: ALL COMPUTER TABS.......

well tabs off the net are people putting what they are listening to on the internet they are doing the same thing we would doi if we were figuring the sng out ourselves only they are doing it and posting on the internet so it really doesnt matter if you figure out the song your self or from the internet

Re: ALL COMPUTER TABS.......

No, shut up you are gay

boring... Get a life... or at the least outta here

T Your banter is boring and sorely lacking insight, also This ain't a cruising site... look for guys elsewhere.

McPherson Guitar

Does anyone know where I could buy a McPherson acoustic guitar, how much should I expect to pay?

Re: McPherson Guitar

You have to order them direct from Matt McPherson at www.mcphersonguitars.com or (680)366-1407. Standard wood combinations of redwood/rosewood, cedar/rosewood, or spruce/rosewood are $4,000, but having played one, they're worth every penny!
