Sadly, I Quit Guitar Playing Once
This was many years ago now, but I can remember it clearly. Do you know how long I gave playing guitar a try? 6 months? 3 months? Maybe 1 month? It was actually just two weeks. That’s it! Pretty shameful, huh?
I can still remember how impossible it seemed to even get a good sound out of the thing, or where I should put my fingers. I bought a chord book, but did not have the slightest idea what all those chord diagrams meant. Of course, the layout of the chord diagrams was explained in the book itself, but it sure didn’t make any sense to me at that point. I then decided to look on the internet for something called “tab” which I had heard about. Again, when I encountered these tabs, it was again confusing. I later realised that I had been reading them upside down.
I did not try picking up the guitar and trying again until a year later when I was suitably motivated with a determination to become an awesome guitar player. It was only because of an intense motivation to achieve this one day that I actually started again. Otherwise, I would have had to refer to myself as a failed guitar player. If you have given up the guitar for whatever reason, I assure you that I can put the fun back into playing the instrument and help you progress. I will actually show you how you are progressing on it in tangible terms, not some made up meaningless jargon.
The point of this article is not to point out how silly I was for giving up the guitar at that point in my life, but to let you know that I understand exactly how confusing, impossible and intimidating it can be when you don’t have a clue where to go when you want to learn how to play the guitar. Whether you don’t even own a guitar yet, or you have stopped playing for whatever reason, or if you have found yourself hitting a plateau in terms of progression, then I can help you today.
For whatever reason you may think playing guitar is too hard, I am here to tell you that you are just plain WRONG! You can play guitar! You just need some proper direction from a dedicated guitar teacher that will create a personalised strategy to help you achieve your musical goals.
