There's more to being a professional guitarist than notes and chords.

40 years of experience

Kyle has been a guitar student of mine for 2 1/2 years. He loves to play classic rock, blues, and just jamming with friends in a band. Over the last few years I have seen him make amazing improvements in his musical reading and fingering techniques. Kyle is a wonderful student and a amazing young man. In fact, I think that other parents will like him so much, that I have decided to invite him to be a student teacher for “Guitar Confidence”. [click to continue…]

KORG Metronome – The Beat Goes On

Accessories

by Jesse Deol on January 27, 2015

Keeping the Beat with a Metronome

Starting out playing a guitar can be difficult and overwhelming at times – keeping your fingers arched, picking the right strings, having your left fingers on the right string and the right fret, and making transitions between notes smooth, and reading music, all while keeping a steady beat. This is something I’ve been somewhat struggling with. This week, I found a solution after going through my small music toolbox.

I pulled out a 10 year old KORG metronome that I had been instructed to purchase by my former guitar teacher. Yet, I was never taught how to use it, although I knew what it was for. Fortunately, it’s in perfect condition with full battery life and ready to use. This week I shall start practicing with that on and although the ticking is quite irking, I believe it will help for some time since I am still a beginner. If you’re having trouble maintaining a beat, try using a metronome to see if it works for you – there are free apps you can download onto your smart phone.
