The Way to Learn to Play Guitar

I practiced more Beatles songs today

I almost sound kinda close

When I play

But since I don’t know all of the chords

I have to play slow

Still it’s nice

Because I can remember the songs

So I know what I’m supposed to

Sound like

When I play unknown songs

It’s harder

So I stick to classic rock

From my favorite artists

I played “Nowhere Man” today

I keep trying to play “Michelle”

But it doesn’t sound right

Even when I put on the capo

And move up and down

The frets like it says

It’s very challenging

I try to stay away from songs

With too many chords

But songs like “Love Me Do”

Are very simple

Some of the songs I never

Heard of

So I don’t try them

Since I don’t know what

They are supposed to

Sound like

But the book I have

Has every Beatles song

It’s a nice book called

“The Beatles Complete Chord Songbook”

If anyone would like to practice guitar

And would like to learn some familiar songs

Then this book is for you

Guitar Practice

I took my last guitar class today

I wish there were more

It was cool playing along with others

I just got an electric guitar today

To practice on now

It sounds really nice

For a used model

Now I feel like a rock star

I don’t know why but

It seems easier than playing the piano

Of course I need to build

Strength in my hands and fingers

If anyone is learning the guitar like me

Than check out a free app called Yousician

It has free guitar lessons

And it’s on Android

But goes by tabliture

I also tried another one called iJam

But it’s limited in exercises

I mastered the first song Wild Thing

But I haven’t gotten the hang of the next

Still waiting on the Beatles songbook

I also want to keep trying to write songs

My first is almost finished

But I’ve learned that a song

Can only have two chords

I want to tackle YouTube next

There’s gotta be millions of videos there

On guitar playing and tricks

Don’t know what to check first

Maybe how to switch chords smoothly

And how to stay on beat

I got every tool now

A chord dictionary

A metronome

A capo and a tuner

Plus a 10W amp that came with the electric guitar

I’m ready to jam now

Hopefully I have inspired you to try guitar too
