Valerie’s Intro to Guitar

Posted on

Thanks for the opportunity, Bryan, to learn with all of you! I have been wanting to learn but never made it a priority…. until now 🙂

Thanks to Rachel, my 6yo, for taking the video. She will be learning with me behind the scenes. I’m hoping she’ll want to make an appearance one day.

I am so excited to be learning with all of you! You can find me on twitter at @_valeriei

    Nice that your intro could become a family affair, Valerie (and Rachel)! Can’t wait to see your guitar playing come along in the next few weeks / months, steel strings or otherwise ; )

      Thanks! My eldest just watched the intro and now has declared interest again, so we’ll see what happens. My youngest wanted me to take a video intro of her last night too just for us. She said she would think about whether to make it public or not (no pressure from me). It would be pretty sweet if she did decide to learn openly with us 🙂

    Excited to see where this goes. Have been already thinking about how I can do this with piano?!

      Wonder if there is an intro to piano group. I sort of learn over my kid’s shoulders at their lessons. I can read music now at least! 🙂

        With all of the other (albeit strummed) instruments that have been mentioned even thus far, there could be a section for “Other Instruments.” Maybe we could look to brainstorm it as another assignment? “What else can you play?” maybe. There may be room under the “Instructional” video category for piano, banjo, uke, tenor guitar, etc, as well.

    Awesome. You’re an absolute beginner like me! Oh wait, you can tune a guitar. I can’t do that yet. 😉

      Ha.. well, I’ll help you if you need it. If you have an ipod touch or iphone, the guitune app worked for me (unless one of the experienced guitarists has a better solution). I preferred it to the small little box that I got from Long & McQuade…

      Maybe we should schedule some skype or google hangout beginner jam sessions! I’m sure we’ll sound… mediocre at first 🙂
