The best practice amp for starters and often for everyone else too

Posted by BluzCruz in The BluzCruz BluzBlog, 27 June 2017 · 148 views

Here it is...straight to the point. Make sure you have a MicroCube. Plain and simple.

They are cheap at $150 new, or anywhere from about $50 to $100 used. If you buy used, try to find one with the strap and the authentic Boss PSA-120S power supply. (Those are about $30 new). You can get cheaper power supplies, but they usually have shorter thinner cords...

Session's

Posted by Lowstrings in Lowstrings' Blog, 06 June 2017 · 215 views

Just throwing this out there: how much time is too much time spent on one session? I've spent like a month on each session not that i didn't get it but because i really want to be sure i'm spending enough time going through each session end results producing that straight up guitarist that we all want to become. I play a Gretsch hollow body my end goal in...

Session 2 - Oh, so this is what I've been missing

Posted by IdahoDad in IdahoDad's Blog, 31 January 2017 · 756 views

So, after years of Scruggs style banjo playing, even had a period playing with a bluegrass group, I've decided to finally get serious about playing the guitar. I have to admit to learning banjo by ear, tab, and perseverance, whilst never reading music or even trying to understand the basics of music theory. For some reason the banjo came easy; must have b...

Lesson One

Posted by Tsmart in Tsmart's Blog, 29 January 2017 · 678 views

I am currently on Lesson one.
At the end of this lesson, Byron and Stacey went through signs. I am wondering why Byron's color purple sign was different then Stacey's. When he went through a sentence, his sign was more directed to the color pink then purple, which threw me off. I have always known my alphabet/numbers/colors....so now i am confused and was...

Session Six

Posted by billcoton in Bill Coton's Blog, 14 January 2017 · 724 views

Since my last post I have been through session 5 and 6, I must
say I am really enjoying playing along with Steve, some of the
chord changes I am finding a bit tricky, so I shall practice them
on my on and go back to the DVD and try again.

It would be great if I could find someone to play along with, I
have been to a jam session held locally, but these gu...


Fly Me To The Moon - my 3 weeks progress

I had a few months break from LMG, I focused more on my bass playing during that time. Recently I went back to practicing guitar and got really interested in jazz guitar. About three weeks ago I started learning head and arpeggios to a beautiful jazz standard called Fly Me To The Moon, and here's my progress after these these three weeks:

Real guitar player?

Posted by pikestar in pikestar's Blog, 20 July 2016 · 597 views

Well it's been a while and playing has been sketchy as always as work keeps me busy.
Nearing the end of Session 6 so thought since I now feel more like a real guitar player the avatar should change.

No longer just a guiatr hero wannabe dad

Moving on to session 5

Posted by The Deuce in The Deuce's Blog, 12 June 2016 · 637 views

As of 6/12/2016 I move into Open Cords. Yes session 4 was everything folks said it would be but they also said but "you can do it". This lesson was a great confidence booster along with all the skills gained. I look forward to cords and what's next!

Quiet Nights..again! But better than before.

Posted by Eric H. in Eric H.'s Blog, 03 April 2016 · 863 views

I had done Quiet Nights before but this time I believe I did a better job of it and added a solo. My solos are like snow flakes. No two are alike!



One last try

Posted by Spinner55 in Spinner55's Blog, 29 March 2016 · 550 views

Doing some spring cleaning I came across my old Gibson SG, its from the 60's and I haven't picked it up in years. I bought it used for $200 to play rhythm guitar in a amateur rock band. I thought of selling it as I never did learn to play it well. Then decided I'd give Learn and Master a try. Just got it yesterday, I plan to start at the beginning an...

Hey everyone! I'm new to the community and newbie at the guitar. I just got my DVDs delivered and here in a couple of hours I'll get started. I'm so excited and motivated. I see by the other blogs, everyone else is motivated and happy to be here as well.

Not a Quitter just a long pause

Posted by wyojack in cowboyjack's Blog, 07 August 2015 · 591 views

I got hung up in lesson 4 a couple years ago and thought I would give it up and continue to play by ear rather than learn notation, big mistake ! I started back in lesson 1 in june 2015 and just completed lesson 4 and moving on to lesson 5. I must say one of my inspirations to start over was reading the forums posted by all you fine folks out there wantin...

Session 1

Posted by Fred P in Fred P's Blog, 03 August 2015 · 556 views

I've begin this journey on the July 30 2015.

Bought I good beginner guitar Seagull S6 Original to start with and fallow all lessons.

It's was my real first guitar lesson I listen to and don't try to skip to the end and try to play a song directly.

I've tried to play with Rocksmith and the 2014 edition, that where my Epiphone LesPaul Jr come, but it's n...

TA DAAaaa!

Posted by PatIam in Guitar Rescue, 24 June 2015 · 874 views

Now it is done! Well, almost... there are a few minor swirls in a couple of places that stand out to me. These swirls will be removed with another polishing. And there is a little polish residue where the neck joins the body that will be lightly brushed out. It sounds great! A combination of an acoustic guitar with a Stratocaster neck.

Drumming update

Posted by Jusca in Rhythm Nation, 06 March 2015 · 701 views

It's been a while since I've updated this blog. The last time around I was talking about how I wanted new cymbals and how I was flamming.

Bagged the cymbals:

I got the new cymbals in Janaury this year. I saved up enough money to pay cash and bought the cymbals on eBay. I got the Zildjian A Custom 20" Medium Ride and 13" ZHT Mastersound Hi-Hats (pair),...

Twas the Night of Live Lessons, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except for the mouse.
The Computer was booted to Ustream with care, in hopes that Steve Krenz soon would be there.
The viewers were all logging into the Chat, with their eyes on the countdown, waiting they sat.
When up on the screen there arose such a clatter, I sprang...

3 Year Annniversary Post/blog

Posted by sleepingangel in sleepingangel's Blog, 18 August 2014 · 1,020 views
reflection, anniversary

I didn't want today to go by without reflecting a bit on my 3 years here. As many of you may know I actually started out doing both the Learn and Master Guitar and Learn and Master Piano. I was newly without a job and decided to pursue both in ernest while looking for work. I did really well until I hit session 4 in the guitar course and that's when I re...

S12

Posted by BBD in BBD's Blog, 05 August 2014 · 658 views

Began: 08/04/14

Wow S11 was long! But I think its time to move on. I read that S11 makes more sense with S13 & S14.

Back to learning some new chords. Fun stuff!

What's the Craic?

Posted by JleoLegacy in Jleo's Inside Story, 18 July 2014 · 651 views

This is a friend of mine who long before I ever thought of learning to play was doing the local bars this is his new song and it's a real good foot tapper with an interesting cameo appearance from a note worthy American Official :biggrin:
