Playing The Guitar With Others: Where To Find Jamming And Gigging Opportunities For Amateur Guitarists

2023-06-16T15:12:27+04:00

Jam with Friends! It can be quite a daunting thing to go from someone who enjoys playing guitar at home by themselves, to playing in front of real other human beings! I have had many adult aged students reach a point in their playing where they are really getting comfortable playing in their chosen genres and are keen to take it to the next step, but struggle to do so if they don’t know of anyone or have any opportunity to jam with other people. This is a crucial step to becoming a better musician, as playing with others teaches you [...]

All About Vintage Guitars

2023-04-05T15:25:38+04:00

Why The Hype? So I’m sure that if you’re into guitars and guitar gear that you’ve no doubt come across people passionately arguing about whether vintage guitars sound, feel and look better than their modern counterparts. The “vintage” tag is often given to guitars over 30 years of age, or more likely in the guitar community, guitars built before the year 1980. Many collectors however consider the golden era of the guitar (in particular the electric guitar) the late 1950’s and 1960’s. Obviously there are exceptions to this generalisation, but think about how many of those museum-piece models are from this [...]

Not Enough Practice! Ok I’m just going to go straight there - the most likely scenario for why you’re not improving on the guitar is that you’re not practising enough. We’ve all heard this spiel before, so if you’re finding that you’re constantly having unsuccessful attempts at doing some decent practice on the guitar, it’s probably time to establish a solid practice routine and stick to it. There’s no exact number on how much practice you need to do, but a few times a month, once a week or even a few times a week will often not be enough to [...]

Should I Do Zoom Guitar Lessons?

Flexibility One thing that I notice my Zoom students love about their lessons is the flexibility and convenience of it. They can go straight from their regular home routine into their lesson for 30 - 60 minutes, and then go straight back into whatever they were doing. There’s no commute time to a music school nearby, where you would need to make sure that you remember all of your worksheets and everything else that you need for your instrument. Everything you need is close by and basically within arms reach should you need it in your lesson. Students often seem even [...]
