Look maa! I play the guitar...

I recently got a six string acoustic guitar for myself.

Thats my guitar :D
I have been fascinated by a guitar ever since I got into rock. Also, a guitar complements my singing ;) . I just bought it 5 days ago and am happy with the progress I'm making.. I'm learning on my own. And I'm loving every second of the practice schedule.

The site I'm learning from is guitar.about.com . I've thus far learnt these :
  • Nine open chords
  • The E phrygian Scale
  • The Blues Scale
  • Few strumming patterns
  • The Notes on the Fret
Well, I'm still struggling with the quick switching between chords. Some help would be appreciated .

I'm planning to accomplish these in the coming days:
  • Learn Power and Barre chords
  • Master F-chord and be able to play all nine basic chords at will
  • Be able to switch chords gracefully
  • Be able to memorise and play notes on the fretboard at will
  • Be able to play some basic songs with basic strumming pattern
Thats all folks.

  1. Congrats for your guitar man. Looks good. But man ur wishlist is crazy, the things that u have outlines won't take place in 'coming days', but actually in 'coming months' if u practice for abt 3 years daily.

  3. it depends on how u ur 'coming days'. lets say it stands for 29 (Since after 30 it will the 'coming month'). so lets meet somewhere after 29 days. and yes, i bet 100rs. (and maybe a treat as well) :)
