Re: Brian May

Since the start of the lock down I have been watching Brian May's videos on his Youtube channel. Words of wisdom, micro concerts and guitar lessons, all done from his living room with his Red Special (or replica) and a small Vox amp. Absolutely inspiring stuff and done in a spirit that reflects our...

Re: Recently started to play the guitar

Hello Tom! Congratulations on taking up the guitar, a wise decision if ever there was one! There's a lot of help available these days, particularly on Youtube. I think with any type of learning it's finding about what works best for you. There are a lot of good tips from the professionals too - Bri...

Re: Recently started to play the guitar

Hi Tom..... just picked up on your recent guitar playing adventure..... First, I am no professional guitarist. But in terms of improving your playing and technique, and enjoyment, and take it from my 50 years of playing acoustic guitar, you can get a heck of a long way with minimal talent, but a lo...

Re: Recently started to play the guitar

Hi Tom, How are things going now? As was mentioned, just muck about with the basic shapes of A Am C D E Em and get to know what they sound like... Then quickly (Took me ages) you will find them all over the fretboard, try to learn what is where. This helped me immensely. Loads of good stuff on YouT...

It took me many years from starting to learn guitar to learning how to play ‘Hotel California’. Then again that song wasn’t written...

Re: Recently started to play the guitar

Welcome to the pleasures and pain of learning guitar. ‘Up to 2 chords’? That’s okay and my first suggestion is to find a good tutorial book or online material. I started over 55years ago with Bert Weedon’s ‘Play In A day’ - took me 6 months! Although that may sound like a twisted joke it really isn...
