No pun intended, but I practice what I preach. Being out of town is not an excuse to put down my guitar. I love to practice the guitar and play the guitar. So I have had a tremendous amount of practice time up here (it is in the 20 degree zone, Florida boys stay inside in this weather!). Including a trip to the Rockville Maryland Guitar Center.
As usual I went to the “Platinum Room“. Most of the guitars in the room cost at least 3500 bucks, up to over 50,000 clams. I played several Paul Reed Smith guitars but only one 1962 reissue Fender Stratocaster. Why only one Strat? Well, I fell in love with it. And after about one and a half hours of picking on it I had to go home for dinner. I have the utmost respect for PRS, Gibson and the other excellent guitar manufacturers, but I was meant to play a Strat.
To top it off, I played through a Dumble Amp. If you never heard of them, I’m not surprised. The cheap ones cost over 5000 bucks.
Here is a list of past articles to brush up on concerning scales and chords.
Use yor practice time wisely, I always warm up by going over my chords and scales. It is good for your hands to warm up and good to reinforce your scale knowledge too. I recommend that you do the same. We are advocates of this knowledge at Guitar Players Center. Become the best player you can be. Enjoy
