Here is an early bird edition of my three random thoughts. For those who are new here, each Monday I share a post with 3 random thoughts on guitar, music, and life, this time including thoughts about movie soundtracks, making scales fun, and more.
Anyway, tomorrow I will be away on holiday for a four-day break so here it is, one day early.
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!
