Well here is my first post on my blog….hopefully someone will read it
To introduce myself I am Henry and I have been a secondary school teacher for around 7 years. I started this blog because I wanted to try and promote the things I do and help others who might want to go into teaching. I see this blog as a place where I can express my views and hopefully help some people with guitar.
I have played guitar for over 20 years and still enjoy playing (thankfully!). Learning the guitar took a while but looking back I realise I should have done a few things differently and I aim to try and stop others from falling into the same pitfalls that I did. My guitar tutorials will not be about becoming the greatest guitar player but more about being the best guitar player you can!
Not all guitarists want to shred around the fretboard and likewise not all guitarists want to play C,D and G for the rest of their lives. This really means that I will try and balance my tutorials between learning some chords and playing lead guitar. This should mean everyone can pick something they enjoy doing and have a go! The main thing is to USE YOUR EARS because they usually tell you more about what is going wrong than your fingers do.
My first tutorial will be about getting started on the guitar. I will include some information about guitars, amps, leads and effects to try out. I will also explain why I think private tutors can be effective but also how without proper practise can be a waste of money. Many thanks for reading my first post and hope you enjoy the videos
