1st. lesson
« on: September 21, 2008, 08:45:14 PM »
Well my 1st. lesson was great!! While my teach was on vacation I practiced trying to get good tones from the strings on a few chords and he said I impressed him!! I have very sore fingers right now and am very pumped about what I'm learning this week. He even spent some extra time with me for free. He checked out my D10 and adjusted the neck a little. Also gave me alot of homework to get done in 1 week, so see-ya later. Truk.

well done truk. you are now on your way for a satisfying, if somewhat frustrating at times, journey. Try to enjoy all the little victories along the way. Like sore fingers....that's a good thing.
cheers

Yahoo!!!!  Sounds like you are off to a terrific start.

A little finger soreness is to be expected.  But don't push it to the point you are in pain.

Keep us posted!!  [:D]

Keep on Trukkin', my good man! And you might even get your teacher to show you the chords to that song by the Greatful Dead (Truckin)

Is your music teacher going to work with you on general and guitar specific theory?? I know it sounds boring but theory with basic scale and arpeggio exercises  will pay you back tenfold in both dexterity and genre versatility in the long run.

Hey Thanks for the replies! And donny341, that's a great suggestion for a song, I'll be sure to ask. Quinn, I havn't talked with him about theory in any detail yet, but he did touch on it for a second. I'll be sure to ask about that also. Thanks for the info!!! Time to practice, Truk.
