playing guitarI have certainly found learning to play guitar to be a lot of fun and very rewarding but I have to admit it can also be quite frustrating at times.

It took me a while but I learned a number of songs I really like which give me something to practice when I hit those frustrating points in learning how to play guitar faster and better. This allows me to decrease my stress level before returning to the lessons I’m on.

I heard about learning scales, pentatonic scales, which meant nothing at all to me at the time. But my Jamorama guitar lessons have helped me learn some and I have noticed my speed and accuracy are improving greatly.

Just in the last month I’ve noticed I am floating over the fret board instead of pressing each note with a death grip. This has allowed me to speed up my guitar playing for a much richer sound. It’s changed how I play and has made it even more exciting.

Let’s look at a couple of Youtube videos that show you how to play pentatonic scales on your guitar. I choose acoustic guitar lessons because they don’t go quite as wild as they tend to do on the electric guitar lessons.

I love the sound of blues although I mostly play country or rock so I have been learning I have been practicing the blues pentatonic scale from Marty Schwartz. He tends to talk a lot but then again I love to talk a lot about the things I love as well. Here’s a video showing you the blues pentatonic scale.

Practice, practice, practice and enjoy.
