Music Articles

My passion for playing guitar, and learning the mandolin, is fairly new. I’ve been playing for about eight years now. Additionally I can’t believe how far my playing has come. Initially, like everyone else, I learned chords and learned to strum. Then came the pandemic.

I was jamming with my buddy on Tuesday nights. That ended for almost a year. It was during that time I decided to learn fingerstyle guitar. This was more so out of a frustration with using a pick. I am very heavy handed. Even when I tried to strum smoothly and slowly it just didn’t sound good. Fingerstyle changed my guitar playing life.

Not only did it give me a different approach to playing, but my technique improved as well. Meaning, my left hand technique forming chords improved big time. Now I’m learning flat picking. This is something I can do with a pick.

Enjoy the articles below. Hope you find something to learn.
