Ive always wondered how young people have gifts and talents at such a young age ?
is it because they go to singing lessons when theyr 5 or guitar lessons when ther 7 ?
it is so wierd how people are gifted by god and other people arent. It is annoying how people with talent are so efortless on what they do and the normal / average person has to practice for donks before they get any good.
they are much easly spotted than others and some people have to try up intill theyr 50 to get into the big music world….

Guitar Lessons: Am I Wasting My Time And Throwing My Life Away?



free Ebook when you sign my email list www.guitarjamz.com

Okay, I was studying for an honors degree in Fashion at university but decided to drop out because I was starting to lose interest in it and it was just no longer my cup of tea. The whole reason why I had chosen that course was because I enjoyed it and I wasn’t enjoying it anymore. So I thought whats the point, my grades were slowly getting worse, so I withdrew my application. I always used to sing for my house mates on campus and they told me I should try it out professionally but I just ignored them cos I was too shy to sing to people I didn’t know. Deep down I did want to sing but was afraid my older sisters and my dad wouldn’t approve so I stayed at uni for a while longer.

Anyway I’ve been trying for the past month or so to find a job but I haven’t had any luck and I just feel so down all the time. The only thing that ever makes me feel better is music.
Every since I was little I wanted to be a singer and always had this fascination with music and singing on stage.
I’ve started writing songs on a daily basis and I think they sound quiet professional enough for me to make it as a singer/songwriter.
Luckily I found an ad that promotes free singing lessons and I’ve been going every Tuesday morning and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve also booked songwriting and guitar lessons starting next month and I’m really exited.
The problem is my older sisters are really bossy and told me to stop this whole thing, that I have a good voice but for a 19 year old it’s too late, it will take years to succeed and I’m wasting my time and throwing my life away. I haven’t been listening to them and they’re really ticked off. They’ve even stopped talking to me.
I hate arguing with them but I really think I could do this with hard work and motivation. But they’re really trying to convince me that this won’t work.

My question is. Does anyone here agree with them? Am I wasting my time?

Acoustic Guitar Songs: Can I Have Your Opinions On My Bands First Song?

Lyrics: They say mother earth is breathing With each wave that finds the shore Her soul rises in the evening For to open twilights door Her eyes are the stars in heaven Watching o’er us all the while And her heart it is in Ireland Deep within the Emerald Isle We are forty against hundreds In someone else’s bloody war We know not why were fighting Or what we’re dying for They will storm us in the morning When the sunlight turns to sky Death is waiting for its dance now Fate has sentenced us to die Ireland I am coming home I can see your rolling fields of green And fences made of stone I am reaching out won’t you take my hand I’m coming home Ireland Oh the captain he lay bleeding I can hear him calling me These men are yours now for the leading Show them to their destiny As I look up all around me I see the ragged tired and torn I tell them to make ready ‘Cause we’re not waiting for the morn Ireland I am coming home I can see your rolling fields of green And fences made of stone I am reaching out won’t you take my hand I’m coming home Ireland Now the fog is deep and heavy As we forge the dark and fear We can hear their horses breathing As in silence we draw near There are no words to be spoken Just a look to say good-bye I draw a breath and night is broken As I scream our battle cry Ireland I am coming home I can see your rolling fields of green And fences made of stone I am reaching out won’t you take my hand I’m coming home Ireland Yes I am home Ireland We were forty

Guitar Chords: Alternative G Chord On Guitar?

Lyrics: Vs 1: Honey I know that I’ve had to be away Far too long, you shouldn’t have to live this way On your own, in that dark and lonely place I know you need me there Chorus: So I’ll be on my way home Just as soon as my job is done I’ll never quit what I start Which is why I’m still here, It’s why you still have my heart And I can’t promise you much, But you’ll always have my love Keep it close to your soul, Wherever you go, until I get home Vs 2: Honey I know, that you want a normal life Where I come home, and cuddle up to you each night But while I’m gone, you give me strength to carry on It’s your love that makes me strong Chorus Repeat Bridge: They say home is where the heart is, That’s where I wanna be But if the Good Lord says it’s time to go Please don’t worry about me Chorus: Cuz I’ll be on my way home and I can hear Him say “well done” And I will wait for you my love And you’ll never be alone Girl, just keep on holding on Until I get home Thank you for your support of the music and of our soldiers.


Hey guys! I only recently (2 weeks ago) brought a guitar, so far I’m okay with all the chords but Im struggling REALLY BADLY with the G chord, my fingers never hit the right strings accurately and its really frustrating me because nearly all songs have the G chord in there.

Soon as there are almost 5 alternative ways to play the F chords, are there any alternative way to play the G chord? if so please tell me in beginner guitar language, like what string to press down and which frets. you guys will literally save my life if u could tell me an alternative!

Thanks.

Guitar Lessons: Does He Like Me, Or Someone Else?

So theres this guy I’ve liked for about 10 months. He’s an amazing guy, and he offered me guitar lessons because he knew I wanted to play. Ever since then which was about 8 months ago, we’ve started becoming better friends and spending more time together (mostly in a group). Whenever I look at him, he’s usually looking at me. He usually is around me when we’re in a group together, and we seem to just have a good time together. Occasionally he’ll flirt and stuff. But lately, theres been this other girl around and she has a boyfriend, but I’m starting to think he likes her. She asked HIM to give her lessons, and They seem to hang around eachother aswell a bit, and I’m just worried he likes her. Or am I just paranoid? Please give me some things to help with picking up on how a guy acts if he likes a girl. Thankyou. xx
