Every month I do a Live Q&A session to cover any guitar questins that you might have. This month I answered questions about guitar recommendations, playing with backing tracks, triads, and more! If you want to be notified about these Live Q&A sessions in the future, head over to my YouTube channel and subscribe. We have these the first Thursday of every month. Make sure to ring the bell for notifications so you don't miss these!
[03:27] My problem right now is picking the right strings. If I watch what my right hand is doing, then I screw up with the finger position on the neck. If I'm watching my left hand, then I pick the wrong string. Any advice?
[5:49] Playing for the last 9 months and progress is completely halted. Can't play any songs normally. Any advice?
[9:19] One of the techniques used in improvisation is "bending". Can it be done successfully on an acoustic guitar and could you demonstrate how to do it?
[11:25] I want to spice up my improvisation and add some triads. If I don't know what chords are being used in the track but only what the key is, is there any way of knowing which triads will work?
[15:49] Can you recommend an acoustic/electric under $800.00? Also, does the baby or 3/4 guitars sound as rich as the big ones if I were to buy a good one at the $800 price point?
[22:41] If you are participating in the monthly practice sessions, how do you leave the plan, go elsewhere on the site and return?
[24:08] The scale of C has 7 distinctive pitches C, D, E, F, G, A, and B. What do you call these 7 distinctive pitches?
[25:02] Q2) Why are we focused on the Major and Minor Triads only?
[25:54] Q3) In singing, Do-Re-Me-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do..... is it only applicable to Scale of C?
[27:28] My granddaughter wants me to teach her to play guitar. She's 8. Any ideas on a particular starter guitar? What do I start teaching her?
[29:12] After tuning the open strings I find that some of these notes on other parts of the neck are slightly out of tune. How far do you need to go with this? I just want to make sure I’m doing it right.
[32:20] I really enjoy the lessons with the backing tracks. Is there a catalog of backing tracks on your website? (I haven't seen it) Something that might be useful for members of RGS
[33:14] apart from just practicing and practicing until your hand bleeds, are there any techniques you can give for barre chords?
[33:14] Have you heard of a D. Catala Guitarras model G050 guitar? Mine is probably 50 years old. What type of guitar is it. It has nylon strings.
[38:17] Can you provide any tips for practicing transition between D and B minor bar chord?
[45:10] How to find strumming in songs
[48:03] Do you think that learning both instruments (guitar and bass guitar) is compatible?
