learn to play guitarI am sure that if you were to show a picture of a guitar to people around the world you would be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t know it’s a guitar, they are that popular in our world today.

The instrument we know as a guitar today has had a long history going back to the 8th century and perhaps even further than that. It was about the 12th century that the guitar of today took it’s shape and has become so popular in the music we hear today, especially pop, rock and country. Today the guitar is an instrument most people can afford.

The guitar has an attraction that pulls people toward it but for most it seems just too tough to conquer and is why so many people have an old guitar stuck in a closet somewhere. I started that way and it was many years before I actually learned to play. My brother kept his guitar in the closet to the day he passed away and never learned to play it.

We both started to learn together back in the early 70s but just couldn’t get it without anyone to help us learn. We did try a few books but only became more frustrated. I eventually gave my guitar away and Bob just stuck his in a closet, like I said.
