Epptron is right. If you can't be bothered to type properly, you can't be bothered to learn guitar, Its about your own self-discipline. About pushing yourself a little more each day. There's no short-cuts so either get working at it properly or consign it to the bin, like your typing.

ya well the more time you spend typing the less you have to acctually play. he can bloody well type how he wants.if he has a problem with the writing he just needs to move on to the next thread instead of being a dumbass he could of written a proper reply and helped someone

dude i know its a free internet and all, but please try to put the effort into typing sentences correctly, its really hard to read lyk srsly.

maybe you should try getting a shedule and practice seriously, by seriously i mean working on chord transition for 10 minutes, and etc etc.
I see you're not using the UG black theme

Typing can actually help your guitar playing. Finger excercises, you know? Quick movements, muscle memory...It all comes back to the hands.

You should learn to type. I'm sure I type at least as fast as you or faster, with correct grammar/spelling/punctuation.

So, to get better, you honestly should get better at typing.

\The only argument that I have for typing properly (2 really)
1. It'll help you in school/writing papers
2. It makes it easier for other people to read, I guess it could be thought of as a repect thing also

- regardless-

You should try something other than *songs. I'm a firm believer in soloing ( or learning the set up for soloing) and so that is what i preach. Learn a pentatonic, and then the notes outside of the scale and put it all together.

You could always try something with finger picking, instead of only "pick" songs (just an assumption). like classical gas or stairway-


And- Most likely you are getting better, it's a subtle thing though.

Maybe you are getting better slowly and not realizing. Find some scales and learn them, then try and play them faster and faster.
#15
Have a progression of songs.

Start by learning easy songs of just powerchords and then start moving to ones with palm muting and funny rhythms and just get harder and harder.

Then why even bother putting in those extra notes in chords? According to your logic, instead of playing an E chord, I could just play an E note. People would GET that I'm trying to play an E.


It's just not the same. learn to type at least semi-well or get out. Or just have buni-rabbit teach you everything.

That's probably why you're not progressing at the guitar - if you don't have the patience to write proper sentences then you probably don't have the patience to learn properly.

You'll be surprised how much your attitude to other things can influence semingly unrelated tasks. Guitar requires a certain amount of self-discipline and a lot of attention to detail - those qualities aren't evident in your aproach to posting on a message board so they may not be evident in your approach to guitar either.

^ This is correct.

You shouldn't drop out of school to focus on your music until you can either write or play guitar PROPERLY. And the point of putting 'more letters in' is so people will actually want to help you, not roll their eyes and want to ridicule you.

I'm serious. Even if it takes you a while, type correctly before you post. It will help you guitar playing. And stop saying lolz, it's just annoying.

i swear i opened this thread expecting to see something about beta game testing or something...and after deciphering your super-****ing-insane shorthand writing i'll say this - learning songs is good and all but you have to practice technique and even theory, playing songs helps but sometimes you have to sit down and go through all the needed skills - there are a lot of lessons on UG that can point you in the right direction
