I was finger picking on the guitar making some music with open strings and mostly 2 note chords this morning. I've had an affinity with the guitar for a long time. I took my first lessons when I was 16 and wanted to learn some Country style playing. My instructor picked up a Mel Bays guitar book on flatpicking Bluegrass style music. I became good at cross picking fast and have incorporated that into other styles. And then I started learning some Joe Satriani style legato and incorporated that. I really became a fan of guitar Rock music and Funk. Then I started learning some Jazz, Bossa Nova, and other styles. I was fascinated with trying to come up with strange chords and moveable forms. Only the past couple years have I really started playing without a pick and using my fingers. There is so much that can be done and then I realize that I haven't concentrated enough on learning actual songs! I was all about learning the music theory behind how things work together and making my own music and sound. I realize I need to learn some songs with the wife who also plays guitar. I could spend time on learning how to read notation quickly too, but most songs have chords above them anyway. When I was fresh out of high school, I took singing/vocal lessons off and on for a year, because I wanted to be a vocalist. I picked up playing the guitar because I thought all singers played guitar as well! I ended up getting good at playing guitar and forsaking developing my vocals more. But, I had my own business of teaching others how to play guitar, which was a lot of fun. Now I want to play and sing with the wife; it's just a matter of finding the time to practice together. Producing and marketing a song or even an entire album would be amazing!
