Guitar Lessons: Should I Learn To Play The Cello??

hi:)
I’m a 15 year old girl and I’m interested in playing the cello. I currently play the bass guitar because its one of the less acclaimed rock instruments. I just moved to a new town, and in my old town I did take lessons for my bass. But i took them for about a year now, and i know everything i need to know, as i am a pretty good bassist. I want to take up a new challenge as i want to be a well rounded musician. I want to play a “rock” instrument as well as a classical instrument. I’ve always found cellos more interesting because of its low tone. I personally dont find guitars or pianos that exiting because everyone plays them! They’re so overused. I would like to know if this is a good choice for me, and how much would it cost a month to rent them. Im not going to ask how long it will take me to learn it because thats for you to know and for me to find out!:) Dont suggest the violin because i dont want to play it. Also, (i probably will) should i get lessons? i work horribly out of books, because i have always worked through another person. How long would i practice a day? thanks! P.S. can you cellists tell me anything else i need to know? Arigato!:D
Thanks for all the answers! I find cello is something I really want to do and I’m really up for it! 45 dollars doesn’t sound as much as my bass was (about 80 a month) hopefully the cost of lessons isn’t that much.

Guitar Lessons: Too Late To Start Playing New Instruments?


I’m 14, and recently I’ve been more into music, and made a list of instruments I want to learn to play by college. I plan to learn to play piano, guitar, violin, and ukulele. The thing is, there is no way I can pay for lessons; let alone make time for them. I was going to teach myself online but many people advise to get lessons or I’d never be as good as people who do. Also, even if I do spend 2 or 3 hours everyday on practicing, I could never catch up with people who started when they were age 3 or 4. Not only that, I heard that teaching yourself to play violin is pretty much impossible, since you need someone to point out what you’re doing wrong and to get the right techniques. Although the same could be said for every instrument. So I don’t really know if I should pick up that many instruments at once. Or maybe get lessons when I’m in college. But I might not be as good if I had started now.

Guitar Songs: What Are The Guitar Chords For The Song Bookends By Simon And Garfunkel?



Richard Marx performs ‘Right Here Waiting’ on the PBS show ‘Legends & Lyrics’. —————————————————— Right Here Waiting lyrics: Oceans apart day after day And I slowly go insane I hear your voice on the line But it doesn’t stop the pain If I see you next to never How can we say forever Wherever you go Whatever you do I will be right here waiting for you Whatever it takes Or how my heart breaks I will be right here waiting for you I took for granted, all the times That I thought would last somehow I hear the laughter, I taste the tears But I can’t get near you now Oh, can’t you see it baby You’ve got me goin’ crazy Wherever you go Whatever you do I will be right here waiting for you Whatever it takes Or how my heart breaks I will be right here waiting for you I wonder how we can survive This romance But in the end if I’m with you I’ll take the chance Oh, can’t you see it baby You’ve got me goin crazy Wherever you go Whatever you do I will be right here waiting for you Whatever it takes Or how my heart breaks I will be right here waiting for you Waiting for you www.legendsandlyrics.com

i googled it and i can only find the tabs not the chords

Guitar Lessons: Should I Take Up Another Instrument? If Yes, What Would You Recommend?

I’m 14 and about a year ago I listened to a recording of James Galway playing the flute. I nagged and nagged at my parents to let me try having lessons.

Six months ago I succeeded and they booked them. So I’ve been having lessons since then, once a fortnight. A couple of weeks ago I took my grade 3 exam and got 91% and distinction :)

I heard a friend playing piano, and as it was my birthday a week or two ago, asked for lessons from my parents as my main present. I’ve had two and now I’m playing grade 1 and working towards taking grade 2 in spring.

I absolutely LOVE playing both instruments immensely. I’ve had singing lessons for two years but never enjoyed it as much.

I’ve just given up singing lessons. I’ve learnt how to sing and am not progressing. Now I’m wondering if in about a year or less, I could take up a different instrument. My parents said it should be ok, I’ve offered to do lots of chores around the house to earn it. Flute and piano are both very common instruments, and I wanted to try my hand at a couple of others.

Although it’s another common one, I love the sound of lots of strings playing together, and wondered about that.

Any ideas for any other instruments? Preferably an orchestra instrument. I’m not a big fan of saxophone, guitar or drums.
Oh, my tone on the flute is pretty good. I once played to my music teacher and she thought I was grade 5 or 6 and had been playing for 5 years. I’ve mastered vibrato too.

I’m 12 years old and 5ft 9” is this tall?

www.robertdeanblues.com


The doctor said i was this tall a few days ago and he also said i JUST started my “growth-spurt” so i still have a lot of growing left to do :)
another problem, i love being tall ( or at least i love thinking im tall) ut it makes nmy body look weird.
for insantces, when i have a shirt on and i’m standing, i look slim as an athletic kid but when i take my shirt off….. yikes im very um blubbery. Yes thats the word blubbery. The truth of the matter though is i don’t really like sports but give me a Cello or a Paino and i can knock your socks off. If i went up to ANYBODY in my school and asked where is the g key on the paino they would look at me as if i asked if they ever went to the planet mars and had tea with a martian! (lol)
in fact one time i was in a store and they had a guitar for kids to try and I have NO experince with the guitar what so ever. I played at this shop before but a long time ago. Well anyway while i was expermening some elder wowman came up to me and said ” aren’t you glad those lessons paid off” and winked. I loked at her and she said “well you must take lessons if you play THAT good” i told her i dont play and she looked really confuzed and walked of saying ‘you should take lessons”
The question is WITHOUT saying to take a sport how can i get slim? Should I not worry about this because of my height? lol im ramblng now aren’t i? LOL
Just some info about me i guess lol

Guitar Lessons: Do You Think I Should Become A Drummer?

This is a video lesson for Skinny Love by Bon Iver. Tuning is standard and a capo on the 5th fret. I hope this video is clear and easy to understand. Feel free to leave any comments or song suggestions.


I started playing guitar hero and thats how I started listening to that type of music. I don’t want to be known as the wannabe drummer. Out of boredom as a preteen, I mastered the guitar and drums on expert levels. (And please don’t say I don’t have a life, because I have a job in the library and many talents but not a very close family. Not to brag, obviously.) I really feel I want to become a drummer..but I don’t fit in to the main group at all. The type of people don’t accept me and then there’s another option to become an artist or some type of formal musician. I already took my first lesson and I was complimented by the instructor that I am a natural and not many of his students did everything perfect on the first day. (Please don’t think I’m bragging because I’m really not trying to, I’m just giving details to influence your opinion. I dislike the idea of bragging..) I can play the guitar as well but I don’t want to become as good as Slash. I want to become as good as like Dave Grohl or Taylor Hawkins or something.. Lol and ya I know I already started lessons but do you think I should take this path totally seriously or just get a stinking day job (that’s figurative language, btw). A girl like me..lol I seriously don’t fit in but that’s what I truly want to do. So I guess please give me your honest opinion. So do you think I should be a drummer that bizarrely stands out, a manga artist that comfortingly fits in, a random C.S.I. detective for some bucks and adventure, or useless hobo with no life and eats salted cashews as a main course?

Guitar Songs: How To Get Motivation To Learn The Guitar?

I have bought a guitar with all intent to play it, I want to learn how to play it but when I go to learn I kinda get distracted by other thoughts and stop playing it. I really want to learn and write my own songs, but I need motivation to play it, How can I get the motivation?

What’s the best way to start learning to play the oboe?



www.nextlevelguitar.com click this link for 5 FREE video lessons and FREE Ebook all from Next Level Guitar.com

I’m really passionate about learning to play, as I think that the oboe is such a beautiful instrument that I would really love to be able to play. I can read music and can play bass guitar, ukulele, clarinet and of course recorder (descant and treble). I have had music lessons in the past when starting to play instruments, however I now do not have any contacts regarding lessons. I am also aware that oboes are rather expensive. Should I buy one and have lessons or hire one somehow? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Guitar Games: Why Does The Exterior Of My Nose Sometimes Get Insanely Itchy?



Hey everyone!!! Heres my new cover for the week and this time its “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz. Its a great song and I hope you enjoy it! :) I love you guys so much! Next week I head to LA! Wish me luck! Peace!

It’s a kind of itch were you scratch it and 5 seconds later it becomes extremely itchy again, and it can last from anything between 10 minutes to an hour. It occurrs around the tip of the nose or entrance of the nostrils.

It mostly happens in the following instances:

When I chew gum. It happens every single time I chew gum.

When I eat salty/greasy foods.

Sometimes it also happens when I play computer games and play guitar.

It never happens if I am just lazing around reading or watching tv.

It is strange because I am the only person to my knowledge who ever suffers these. It’s really embarrassing when it happens in public and I am sitting there reaching for my nose every few seconds. It can get really intense.
