For my learning project, I have decided to re-teach myself how to play the guitar!
I already tried to learn the guitar once and was taking lessons, however, I stopped playing a couple years ago and have completely lost any skill I had. Now that I have to teach myself a skill for this class, I thought what better to teach myself than something I know I will be able to learn.
In order to focus my learning, I will be using a couple of online and physical resources. One of the online resources that I have found so far is Guitareo on YouTube. The physical resource that I will be using, mainly to help section off ‘lessons’ is the Absolute Beginners Guitar book that I received from my old instructor. Although I will probably look to other resources as I get further into my learning project these are the two resources that I will start with to base my ‘Lesson Plan’ on.
