Of Interest To Musicians

  I've come up with an information database full of URLs that either I've found useful in my musical growth, or someone has requested that I include.  Every time I come across another interesting topic or web site, or someone sends me one, I add it so that others can find it.  You'll find everything from wiring diagrams, to notation printouts, to teaching aids, to software, and more!  I've even ranked them according to their content, and site layout...

* = Thumbs down - ** = It's worth visiting once - *** = You should check it out  - **** = A MUST VISIT SITE! - ***** = BOOKMARK IT!

LESSONS with sound files and diagrams!

BEGINNER

Know Your Guitar Guitar anatomy and fretboard chart.

Tuning Your Guitar You have to know how to tune your guitar before you can play it!

Tune Up Before you play along with the songs on this site, you'll need to make sure your guitar is in tune.

Warm-up Exercises Why study warm-up exercises?  Because we all need them.  You should really start off your practice time with a warm-up routine, starting off slowly and gradually build up speed.

Finger Exercises They help with your finger mobility, flexibility, move ability, and agility.  With finger exercises, you'll be able to play more precisely, faster, consistently, and longer.

NOVICE

Blues Intros And Outros Here are different licks used throughout the Blues community.

The Capo What's a capo do for you?  Does it matter where I place it?  FIND OUT!

Double Stops Would you like to add a rockabilly or country flare to your riffs?

Reading Music Notation Learn how to read music notation!

ADVANCED

Arpeggios Do you ever get tired of strumming through every song?

'EMaj' Scale If you are able to play a specific note in four or five places, you have the ability to stay fresh during solo opportunities.

'GMaj' Scales/Chords Explore the Gmaj scale in different locations of the fret board, and see how it fits into the Gmaj scale in the same area of the fret board. This will consist of three parts.

Soloing Over The Bass Line Put fills in around the bass line.

PROFICIENT

Finger Pickin' Good Finger picking requires coordination and endurance, and lots of both.  You'll be able to play arpeggios faster with your fingers than with a pick.

Tips And Tricks There are a number of tips and tricks you can learn from playing with other people, reading articles, and playing different musical styles.  There are tricks with picking patterns, effects units, and song reading, and more.
