Welcome to a new Monday post with 3 random thoughts on all things guitar, music, and life, including the Hirajoshi scale, getting organised, and more.
When someone talks about a warm-up for playing guitar, the temptation for many is to roll their eyes, turn away, and to just go on playing their favourite tunes instead.
The trouble is, many beginner guitarists struggle to actually play these tunes well and struggle with the physical aspects of playing them, so not only do the songs sound a bit rough but they also feel uncomfortable to play. In this post, I’ll explain why, if you don’t warm up, you should!
Learning guitar scales can be very daunting and time consuming. It is one of the things that many guitarists really want to master, but often after years of trying don`t really quite get to grips with. It`s no wonder really with all the information out there, often poorly taught and conflicting.
