Re: What guitar do you play onboard?

We live aboard our boat cruising around the Med.
I look forward to every winter as there are other like minded people living aboard and we practise together a couple of times a week.
Good fun and playing with others where you have to go on even if you **** up means you learn so much quicker.

Anyone got any suggestions for easy songs to play on a guitar in a group?

Re: What guitar do you play onboard?

I heartily agree with the recommendation to find a local teacher but I would add that it's most important that you find the right teacher for you.

Lots of people can play, many of them teach. But like any other subject, only a few can teach well and fewer of them can teach YOU well. You have a particular learning style. You want to play a particular style of music. You have a unique personality. Find a teacher that fits those and you will waste less time and money getting where you want to be. Find one who gets you. Find one with a progressive method of teaching that can work with you over the long term.

Approach it in phases. Learn a style or certain level of play, then just play for a while. Master it. Then go back to lessons for a while and learn a different style or level of play and repeat.

Don't take shortcuts, learn the theory. Commit time to practice. They will serve you well as you progress. You don't need to learn to read sheet music, but it can be valuable. At least learn tabular notation. If you can imagine ever playing with others, learn the Nashville numbering system and you can sit it with almost anybody.

Have fun with it. Don't let it become drudgery. It's called PLAYING guitar. The best guitar player in a group is the one who's having the most fun!
