Wow! This Learning Project has been a whirlwind of new learning experiences and rediscovered feelings! While I had fun with the learning process, I now remember why I quit playing the guitar the first time. So, this was a learning experience in more ways than one!
Week One of my Learning Project began with an outline of the direction I hoped my project would go in and some preliminary resources that I hoped to use!
Guitareo proved to be a very helpful resource, especially with the videos on Youtube and then the blogs on their website.
Another resource that I relied on throughout my whole project was my book “Absolute Beginners Guitar” which I found very helpful the first and second times around.
This week was all about re-familiarizing myself with the parts of the guitar and holding everything properly. I looked to Guitareo for my learning this week.
This was my progress from this week!

This week is mostly a continuation of last weeks learning, adding two more chords to my repertoire. For continuity purposes I stuck with the same video tutorials from Justin Guitar to learn the G and C chords.
For my sixth and final week I decided to learn how to read Tablature! TABs are essential to playing the guitar and this was a very confusing and rewarding week for me! I went through a bit of a spiral in my lerning this week, moving from my first resource onto more clarrifying videos and websites!
I wrapped up my learning on TABs with the pros and cons that I discovered through my learning that week!
