I admire this person. He looks so cool in playing his guitar...I want to be like him someday...What do you think of him? His video is entitled,Death Crystal Mountaine with solo at 11 months (http://www.potflix.com/challenge/view/guitar-master?curr=death-crystal-mountaine-with-solo-at-11-months). He can already play like that in just 11 months!!! Is he good? Any suggestions?

Aloha bluebird - Welcome aboard! Please do make yourself feel right at home and stay for a spell.

Thats not terribly difficult playing being shown - Check out the vid below:


Playing like this takes alot of blood, sweat, and tears baby. Get a good guitar pedagogue and start practicing as if your life depended on it.

Welcome to the forum. Now about being a guitar master first you need
to know how to play a guitar before you can master the instrument.
I started playing one when I was twelve and now I'm 48. There are
things that I haven't learned on the guitar yet. But like they say "practice
makes perfect". I used to watch those like Eddy Van Halen, Steve Vai,
Malsteem, and Joe Satrini. I love their playing because of the hot licks.
After trying to play like them I realize that heavy metal is not my gig.
Now when I play the guitar, I'm happy with an acoustic guitar in my
lap playing country. Even I still enjoy playing along with the likes of
Electric Light Orchestra, Moody Blues, and Neil Diamond. If you like
to become a master you might like this!YouTube - Joe Satriani - Surfing with the Alien (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjNAeELQ_Z8&feature=related)

HI bluebird. there are an infinity of ways to learn guitar playing. i started at age 18 or 19 and never really stopped playing until now, though there are some blank moments due to life and its imperatives. i started on the electric guitar my brother had bought some time before, a Samick, fender stratocaster replica. There were only four strings on that guitar, so i learned melodies, as many beginners do, note by note, almost like a bass player. Then when i felt i could play a little more and wanted to play and record my music in better conditions, i bought a gibson SG special, quite cheap at the time. It was only some years ago that i bought an acoustic guitar. Nylon strings. Very cheap, not sounding incredible, but actually i have recorded all my acoustics parts for my music with it. i'm not a professionnal but i can pretend to have achieved some "hearable" sounds, although far from perfect. I started playing different chords, rythm tracks, more seriously only when i got that acoustic guitar. i still can't write or read music, and never used any "tablatures" like those you can find in the magazines. But i can play chords, i can reproduce melodies and riffs, and i can improvise as well.

here's my story. yours is already different of course, and i'm sure you'll get your own way of playing. most of all, HAVE FUN!
