My first week with an electric guitar!

I’m super excited to share that I’ve decided to start playing electric guitar! The person who encouraged me to start playing, is the one and only Kurt Cobain. So I called up my uncle and he brought me over an electric guitar and amp. It’s a lame little amp, but it’ll do the job for the next few months while I try to pick up on this hobby. I started with YouTube. I typed in “Smells like teen spirit electric guitar” and this is what I got. This guy is super funny and easy to learn from.

Over all that song was pretty difficult for me to do at a normal speed, I’m clearly not even ready for this beginner video.
Next up, I tried to play “Come as you are” by Nirvana, and it went a lot better than expected! It actually sounds like a song and I can get the pace up to where it sounds good!

NEXT I randomly saw this guys YouTube video And it said “Super easy electric guitar songs for beginners” and that totally sounds like something I need!! His YouTube name is “Campfire Guitar Star” and this guy is awesome and he’s really good at explaining what he’s saying. I feel like I learned a lot! Next time I practice I will be watching his videos!

Sooooo basically this whole guitar thing is working out. It’s been a week and I’m still interested, so that’s really saying something for me. If you guys have any good songs or videos for a beginner, send them my way! If you’re reading this trying to figure out if you should play the guitar or trying to find some good beginners songs, then my answer is YES! Definitely try it out, it’s fun and feels good to learn something new! HAVE FUN!
