The Learning Guitar Series

After 20 years of professional playing and 10 of Uni Teaching I decided to share the knowledge I accumulated so far in terms of playing guitar and how to learn. One of the triggers for this desition is the corona virus affair. Lots of people are stuck (expecially where I come from) and although I can not really help with it I am sure that there are many guitar lovers out there and I hope that spending some time on the instrument will contribute in taking their mind away from all that is going on and maybe feel less stressed or have less anxiety. The first video has a long introduction (future videos will indeed have less talking and more straight on information) which I suggest you watch as it sets the tone for what's to come. Also it contains a few ideas on how learning should be approached in order to be effective and long lasting.
A link to the PDF with the various exercises presented is available further in the video description ( and no, I won't ask you to subscribe to newletters, channel or other sort of marketing stuff for you to download it.....it's a google drive link)
I hope you will enjoy it, that you will find it informative, easy to understand but ,more importantly, that it will help you further in being able to express your creativity on the guitar

I don't want to swamp Gearslutz with a new thread every time I publish a new lesson so I will keep posting updates here.
I just published the second lesson of my "learning guitar" series. This lesson deals with the left hand major arpeggios connected to the scale shape studied in lesson 1 (E major shape).
Once again you can find a link to the PDF with all the exercises explained in the video description. (and no, I won't ask you to subscribe to a newsletter or something just to get the pdf...it's just a google drive link)
I hope you enjoy it and find it informative

Have fun learning and playing

Lesson 3 of the "Learning Guitar" series is now online.
This one deals with shape of "E" major in terms of chords development.

With it we close, for the moment, the circle for Shape of "E" Major studies having done Scale (Lesson1), Arpeggios (Lesson2) and Chords (Lesson3).

As usual a PDF is available from the link in the video description. Next stop..Shape of "D" major. In the meanwhile enjoy practicing and playing

How wonderful it is when people with rich experience in a certain field are willing to share it with others. Teaching people is hard work that is not given to everyone. Whatever the direction in education... Maybe music, maybe literature. All this has to do with creativity. Because of the poor quality of materials, students can use the site https://writix.co.uk/case-study-writing-help to solve their learning problems. On this site you can get help writing a professional case in the UK. Sometimes it seems that teachers are simply not interested in their work and just sit there... I've been playing guitar for over 5 years, but I'm not tired of teaching because I feel it's not mine and I can only hurt. But I do give advice on playing guitar from time to time.

Totally agree...teaching (any topic) is hard work and a responsibility. It is actually a word I am sometimes not too comfortable with because of its weight.
I like to think of what I am doing more like a "discussion" among guitar players...and me learning from them as much as they are learning from me
Ps: thanks for the nice words

Shape of "D" Major (scale) and other interesting considerations about horizontal and vertical playing, three notes per string approach and a 21 pages PDF .....happy easter



P.S.: does anyone know how to change the name of the thread ? As I am posting updates here maybe I should change it to just "learning guitar" as opposed to "learning guitar - lesson 1" but I don't know how to do it (and if it can be done). I still think It is a good idea not to swamp the forum with a thread every time I add another video but that lesson 1 makes no sense anymore as I am at 4

I believe if you go to your first post and enter into advanced view EDIT you will see the title field and be able to edit that as well.
