My guitar blog
August 2, 2007 7:17am CST
Well, as you might know by now, from my previous discussion about this that I'm learning how to play the guitar by myself. First of all I would like to thank everyone who responded to that discussion with their words of encouragement, and their support.(I didn't mean for it to sound like an acceptance speech, I really mean this) Now most of you also wanted to be updated on how it was going. I don't know if you were just being nice or if you genuinely wanted to know. Well I hope the latter is true, and so I decided to create a blog about my guitar learning not just for updates but also a way to track what I've been learning and hopefully keep the interest alive in me to learn more. I would appreciate any helpful comments on my blog. Now rest assured this is no marketing scheme, as I don't have adsense on it or anything like that, so don't worry about that. It's just that I want to share everything that I have learned so far and will learn in future, because it's just so exciting. http://guitarlearningonmyown.blogspot.com/ I also added it to my lot, but I'm not so sure how that works yet, so you can check out the link above, no pressure of course, only if you want to.

Hi! I checked out your blog and although it doesnt have a lots of posts, it inspired me to be more active on my blog. Anyways, i m playing guitar for a long time so if you have any questions(and i know that beginners have), feel free to ask!

wow, is that your guitar in the pic? It is such a beauty. Yeah, I do have a lot of questions, I especially did when I first started, but now, I'm just more busy in practicing chord transfer which I believe is the most difficult part of all. I've learned nine chords till now, and I've sort of halted learning more, until I'm really good at all of them. It's really nice of you to offer help and advice and believe I will be asking you a lot, so be ready for it. Well, the blog doesn't have many posts because I'm doing the same thing for the past few days, practicing chord transfer, so there's not much to write. Do you have any tips on how to make that easier?

I tried years ago but couldn't get the hang of it. I always admire someone that can play a musical instrument. I don't know if you are familiar with hubpages. I have a few there so if you are interested please go and have a look. It is not a 'money making' blog. I have some intresting hubs there and I have found the people there, are almost the same as here on MyLot, blogs like your guitar blog would be very welcome there, have a look. http://hubpages.com/profile/Annalene

It's nice to see you so passionate about it, many people give up after a short time claiming it's too difficult. I think your guitar looks nice, though I've not heard of the company Reynold, as long as it stays in tune & has a pleasant action, is all that matters for a beginner. Your blog is nice too & I'll check back often for updates :)

Yeah, well, I guess inspiration goes a long way and encouragement too. I mean at least I get that from people here, and that makes so much difference and keeps one going. I think I'm also lucky in the fact that I can ask here for help on anything about the guitar, any time I need it. Well, yeah, it's beat down, but it is my beloved guitar. And I love it, even with all the flaws. Thanks for checking out the blog.
