How to Play the Guitar – Columbus Ohio Guitar Lessons
Understanding music is the first step to becoming a good songwriter and/or musician.
Not many musicians have the ability to really fly by the seat of their pants when it comes to improvisation. Many people think they are incapable of improvising too.
Well as true as this may be. it is not hard to learn how. First you will need a liberal dose of rhythm. This way no one can accuse you of not being able to keep good time. Being a drummer first helps alot but its not required.
The first thing to know is the harmonized scale and the framework it is built on. Simply put, music is a series of whole steps and half steps from a low note to a higher one of the same tone. This take 12 frets to do – that is 12 frets to lay out the traditional do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti-do scale.
Once you have a good understanding of these ‘intervals’ (space between the notes), you will have a great understanding of the territory of music and be able to explore with confidence.
