Craig,

Thanks for this one mon \:\) . Bo Diddley is one of my favorites. I remember freaking out over his stuff when I was a teenager.

Much love,
Larry

I'm not trying to hijack this post but this seems like a good place to ask.

I have a guitar I really want to learn how to play it, But i know nothing about music. can some one give me a few tips on what to start out on?
I mean the very basics too. I can't read music or anything.

Thanks guys,
Chris

i had a crazy urge kind of day yesterday, instead of going straight home from uni i went and bought some models to make, a regiment of cadian shock troops, inner child? (but wont touch them till after exams) and then i missed my bus, and ended up buying a waist-coat, i've always liked them, not sure why, it was completely random and i don't need one, but that's probably why i did it, next i saw some books on learning how to read music, and play different instruments, i flicked through them and it doesn't seem like an easy task, but some of the books are good, so i think that's the best place to start Chris, in books.

Chris,

If I had a guitar I would spend time listening to my favorite songs and trying to hear the notes and match them to guitar strings. I tried this on my stepdad's guitar once.

But, I'm not a guitar expert. I remember when I used to get piano lessons she would teach me the notes by using little kid songs like "twinkle little star" or "marry had a little lamb"... it wasn't real fun. I bet you could learn musical notes by googling around a bit.

I hope this inspires you in some way,
Chris

Chris,

In the day of the DVD and WWW, I'd say go with electronic instruction. At your age, you are probably more visual a learner anyway.

I started out by learning scales. If you learn scales, you can do SO much with the guitar. Plus, scales can be really fun and relaxing to master because you can see improvement with every hour you put into practice. You can google beginner scales.

Please....just dont play like this guy:

hmm, yeah, but books are precise, accurate, refined and developed with care and attention with guaranteed professional input and completeness in most cases, websites are not, the age of technology may bring information at the click of a button, but you lose alot in the process, the day everything goes electronic will be a gloomy day in my books (no pun intended). It is true there are different kinds of learners, but books teach more than their contents, they teach patience and develop a sense of being and learning and disposition that internet sites can not, if we continue to point young people towards the fast hyperactive and distractive source of the internet then we will lose alot in the next generation of adults that people probably wont even realise until it is too late. Books are not only made with more quality but they develop a quality in the reader and not just in the transition of the information either. (this is just general- but my point is- lets not knock books)

Craig,

Yep. I play mostly blues and roots music, also some old 60s rock - Stones and so forth. This kind of thing is in my family. My great uncle Willard was a musician wandering around from gig to gig in the 30s, then he came back to PA, settled down and started a band called the Royal Hawaiians - guys all dressed up the same, including my Dad, who was 11. He played uke, tenor guitar and banjo. Here's Willard about 1932, somewhere down south:



I started playing when I was maybe 14-15, just after the abuse ended. I was pretty much influenced by my great uncle and his blues pals, who would show up at his place to jam sometimes. I just picked it up from them and really don't know much about keys and chords and so forth. I mostly play slide and finger-style blues. I have 5 guitars now, including two old Dobros from the 30s, which I have set up for slide. Here's my favorite Dobro (1931):



I also have a Gibson flattop (1969), a Martin 12-string (2002) and a hand-made German acoustic.

Much picking,
Larry
