My husband and I bought a super basic, but awfully nice looking and cheap, acoustic guitar beginner kit over the past weekend. My husband is a lover of just about all things musical and collects instruments, and a guitar is one instrument that he didn’t already own and that both he and I would like to learn how to play. So we just bought a basic cheapy one for now, we’ll see how this works out for us and if we actually get pretty good at playing this guitar we will most likely save up money for a second, much more expensive, guitar so that we can play both at the same time.
The kit didn’t come with a dvd or book to learn the basics from, so I’ve been scouring the internet (youtube mostly) in my spare time and trying to hopefully figure out how to play the guitar from there. If you are thinking of doing the same thing, then you should know that it’s really a waste of time as the most helpful youtube videos are just a little sample of the bigger, complete, learning library that of course you need to pay some sort of membership fee to be able to access. Yes, how rude, absolutely no one wants to teach you how to play guitar for 100% free and over youtube videos! Ahh, the agony! I’m still holding out hope there’s at least one website on the internet that’s completely free and will help me learn how to play the guitar, and I will definitely let you know when I find it.
And in case you were wondering, the title of this post is a little saying to help you remember which guitar strings go with which notes; the strings in order are E A D G B e, and there you go! I’ve already managed to teach you a little something I learned for free from watching youtube videos! Hah!
