Hello to all my acoustic guitar enthusiast out there I am Markus
I’ve been attempting to play acoustic guitar and the bass all my life, the reason I say that is because to craft and hone your skills on any instrument is a life long journey and I’m still learning.
Now I grew up with The Beatles, in fact I had gotten into the school music program (yep we we’re fortunate in those days to have that privilege) a year after they came to America.
Getting into the music program was a good thing But as far as my parents were concerned because you know! I told them I wanted to be a guitar player like John Lennon. Well they just didn’t know what to think about this so called bug band lol or this hippy named John Lennon and one thing was for sure they weren’t going to get me a guitar! cuz you know I would have to grow my hair long! Or I think thats what they thought. Anyway I started learning trumpet in grade school then after about a year I got enough money together to get me an old used guitar.
We had no money for lessons so I had to learn it by ear. Then the following year I started upright bass lessons in school. All that said the best thing that happened to me in my career was to start the learning process in school with a teacher. And it still continues today.
The reason I’ve created this site is to help those of you that want to learn how to play guitar or any instrument for that matter. Today all you have to do is google free guitar lessons and there will be hundreds of lessons for you. Nothing wrong with that, I mean if you got your basics down first and you need to get some kind of riff down then the internet quick fix just might work.
But in reality what most of us need are good teachers that we learn from (that wouldn’t be me) and we need them our whole career. Because new techniques come out all the time.
I was shocked when I learned long ago that most all my guitar heroes had teachers, Thats all I’m trying to do here with you. Give you options or help point you in that direction. Do you need this to succeed of coarse not but it will help and just give you another option.
Today unlike in my day, today at the click of a mouse we can find the best of the best guitar teachers in the world. Some I take quick lessons from and some I still study under today. So today I put this site up to help with your career. And give you some really cool guitars to look at.
I’m going to take a look at some of these lessons,then put up a review of these well known and sometimes famous teachers and their coarse and give my recommendations to you. And all along the way I will share my personal experiences with you and what I’ve discovered through my own studies.
Also we’ll start looking at where we buy our guitars. Now I know we all have bought our fair share of guitars at the big corporate stores (you know the one) and there’s nothing wrong with that.
But did you know there are other places to purchase your guitars? Yep there is they’re called Luthiers (they build them). I’m not going to say they will be the cheapest but they do build guitars that cost on the higher end of those big corporate stores. So I thought we’d take a look at the Luthiers and their work, then do a review.
So Just a Little More of Me
Nope I’m not famous! Like the rest of us I thought maybe I was going to be, but you know thats something that one has to plan and I didn’t because I thought it would just come naturally 🙂
I played rock and roll for a long time, then I started getting off into different styles cuz when you play for a living, most want to hear what they want instead of what you want to play.
But whether it’s Benny Goodman, Earnest Tubb, Hank Williams, John Lennon or Metallica it’s all good stuff. I wanted to give you my favorite guitarists here as well but I have so many I wouldn’t know where to start and the list would be a mile long and boring at that.
Now that I’ve taken up enough of your time so we could get acquainted I do hope if anything on this site has helped you please let me know or maybe you want me to take a look at some guitar for you or some teacher.
I will do what I can and look forward to ideas that you might have. Some where on this page will be a way to get ahold of me. And I will do my best to get back to you.
I do wish you the best on your musical journey and thanks so much for dropping buy, come back again.
