So my question for anyone that has been playing around with the guitar is what beginner book would you recommend?
I do know that I want to learn on an electric, and I want to lean more towards rock/classic rock.. I dont know whether I should get something that starts with chords or fingers etc..Having a dvd to watch would be a huge bonus too.
Also the thickest string was missing so I went and bought one but I am not sure how to put it on. I figured out to take the small cover off the back of it and actually got the string in all the way up to the neck part but I am not sure how to wrap it around the key thing and which way i should turn it.. I bent it up pretty good trying to figure it out but it never felt right so i undid it.
Keep in mind that I still have an awful lot of things to learn on the drums and they will still be my main focus. I plan on practicing the guitar maybe 2-3hrs a week tops.
Whats up, fellow NH-ite?
I don't know if you have Comcast, but if you do, they have a really good On-demand basic guitar for beginners section. Much better than a book. I just started playing guitar last year, and it helped a lot.
