Son Learning Guitar
I got my son a guitar years ago but until just recently he's now trying to learn to play it. I've showed him just a little and he wants to do the rest on his own for now. You know, sit in his room to play when nobody is around to hear the mistakes. When your trying to learn or practice others can get fed up with you trying the same notes over and over until you get it right. That's the nature of the beast. But once you get those chords and notes and a few songs under your guitar strap, well, then it's time to move on to your own style. Simply following what everyone else is doing just makes you another them. What you really ought to be striving for is something new and different. Perhaps a mix of one guitarist melled in with the style of another. Your own sound and not someone else's. Otherwise you'll never be a stand out only another stand up. Forget about looking cool just learn all you can and create your own way and IT will be cool and different. Then everyone will be trying to emulate YOU.
