GUEST,.gargoyle Guitar: where are you, beginners and learners? (31) RE: Guitar: where are you, beginners and learners? 30 Oct 18


My primary training was keyboard (a few years of cello interveined) and all the classical "learning scales, learning the fingering, transposing keys, etc," as BTMP noted.

I two decades ago broke my right hand in a work related accident. Took a two night "ear training course". And I discovered the wonderful world of "slop," you know, the 1920's advertisements, "they could not believe when I sat down at the piano."

Before that course I was glued to a score...and memorization. I then became very lazy. Now, I am ready to return to "academic rigor"...even a "fake-book" is currently a challenge because it is confining.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

For "slop" I can dig out the mildew encrusted bellows of the accordian. However, while I still have a brain...it is time for lessons and academic rigor.
