This REALLY makes me want to learn how to play guitar
« on: October 23, 2020, 06:14:02 pm »
Sometimes I don't know what the heck I'm doing -- but I'm doing the best that I can with my cigars for fingers. It's going to take a lot more time and effort to get a whiff of this playing level:



Don't get me wrong I'm not discouraged, this totally and completely inspires me, and it's good to know where the bar is set and who is setting it.

I'll be over here learning to play guitar. Hope you're all safe and having fun with music. Carry on good people!

Hi Clint, how are the peaches in So Cal?

Yes, I think it’s safe to say we’re all having fun with music on the forum. You’ve posted clips of the homeskoolin’ guy before.  He’s a professional session cat and brilliant at what he does. We have to remember this is a community of mostly ‘beginners/improvers’ and although that covers quite a large spectrum of abilities, don’t let’s get discouraged by things that are possibly beyond our (certainly my) reach.😃

So, Clint, here I sit in the heart of the Midwest with cigar fingers and a good dose of arthritis to add to the joy.  Someday I will be able to stretch my fingers enough to pull off something like that, or like Jango, I will find an alternative way to accomplish a similar sound.
But, hey, I have only been actively learning for a few months so you will probably get there ahead of me!  :D
Regards,
Robert

This is just the guitar in one of its purest forms. A progression with plenty of movement in a looper and then chord voicings, variations, and tones, and scale bits played over the top and never really the same thing each time around the progression. Expressive & explorative playing, with melodies -- just the whole enchilada. No need for a hairy legged-drummer, nerdy engineers twiddling knobs, or a tatted diva vocalist with hair for days, and certainly no need to sling the guitar down to your thigh and gyrate around a stage. The guitar is the star vocalist and fills every musical need. I do circle back to Uncle Larry often for these reasons. This is a North star of sorts for me to navigate towards.

Thanks for sharing Clint, not seen this guy before but very insightful and as you say inspiring. Guess I need to get my stuff together yet again and start moving forward once more !!

Cheers

Hey CT, I've been subbed to Tom for awhile. I agree he's awesome.

If you haven't been exposed to him yet, I gotta suggest checking out Kirk Fletcher too. (For more of that "whole enchilada" feeling. 😉 At least to me. Dude's amazing imo.)





I don't have sausage fingers (so I got no excuse I guess lmao) but i'm not anywhere close to knowing what I need to know, so I know the feeling. Just plugging along trying to do my best like you. 💖
Just a noob who likes diminished chords and songs that use them.

Those are the best moments, when you see a video or hear something and just feel that inspiration and motivation rise!
Interesting video!
Thanks for sharing, gave me a little song-creating motivation right now! :)
