Zitat von pebberbrownThere are occasions when people can become great guitarists... Don't you think that Robert Fripp, who is rated among the 100 most influential guitarplayers, must be a very inspiring person to every guitar player? Fripp was when he started tone-def and had no sense of rhythm. This must mean he had no talent at all. Him wanting to learn play guitar, leave alone becoming a professional, is like a dyslectic who wants to become professor in literature. I suppose if a teacher has ...

Zitat von tplu7234At my guitar school we have 3-4 guys over 70, who are just beginning guitar. One has had a few broken fingers and is going to face huge challenges as we progress but he has racked up near the most hours of practice at the school. He is retired, so he does have more time than some other people but he is spending it wisely doing something he wants. I asked him what made him want to play guitar: 'I wanted to years ago and never did...now I have a chance to change that'. I guess th...

Zitat von pebberbrownThere are occasions when people can become great guitarists even if they start at a later age On itís own a high skilled musician doesnít necessary be a good musician. Iím Dutch and saw Jan Akkerman many times live and found it most of the times disappointing. The fusion shit he played is not meant for a large audience. Only a few hear the beauty. I think weíre all guitar freaks here so weíre talking mostly about getting the most out of the instrument. And than weíre not ta...

Zitat von uderoche I did not have a job for 4 years. I sat at home and practiced guitar and studied music. I donít have a job at this moment. And if I do have a job itís not an interesting one anyway. Your remark makes me thinking why not go for it. But thereís certain dilemma. Iím 50 years old so what can I accomplice? Even though Pebber would say you suck, I think I can play a little guitar. So Iím not a beginner at 50. I started at my 18th. And where does it lead? Is trying real hard to get...

Mister Brown before Iíd meet you on youtube my guitar-life, so to say, was a lot easier. At 6.00 of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xdv8Lvce1y4 you talk about Chromatisizing a scale. I know all the modes from Ionian to Locrian in every position on the guitar. But if you start to chromatisais this than it means you can play (always?) any note. And that thereís no such a thing as playing out of the tune or false. Playing in scales or modes gives you a certain help in what to play and wha...

Zitat von pebberbrown So I spent a lot of time not caring. In most sports itís often good after a season, or a period of hard training, to take some time off. Maybe itís even good to get a little out of shape. Doesnít this also apply a musician?

Zitat Just remember Theo, the greater your technique the better you will be able to play in any type of music. It is hard to over-practice this kind of thing, ideally you want to be at a level where you can focus mainly on songs but your technique must come first. Be realistic and proportionate, the daily practice routine on this website will put you on the right track.Yes I know. Damn I'd whish that when I was 20 there was internet and people like Pebber Brown around. I didnít take lessons beca...

Zitat think you will find Theo actually agrees with you Pebber, just looks like a grammatical error. You are from the Netherlands aren't you Theo?Sure I agree, with you all. And yes I'm Dutch. I wasn't aware of a grammical error. Sure I donít believe thereís a guy that can reach the absolute top in just three ours a day. But I wanted to make a side note. Not all the people are the same. A friend of mine is a mathematician and he hardly made any homework while others have to study many hours a da...
