learn-and-master-guitar-instructionalPeople learn how to play the guitar in many different ways. Those of us who started as kids very often walked the traditional path of weekly book lessons, note reading, recitals, and all the rest. While that is an excellent way to learn, as people move through their lives it becomes a much more difficult way to go as their schedules and other commitments get in the way.

You’re helpless; it’s just like 3rd grade grammar class when your teacher picked the “slow kid” to read all you can do is stand there and take it. I realize that no one reading this would ever freely admit to committing such a vulgar display of public fugga-duggaery.
