Important of Guitar Courses and Music Education in Society

I wanted to switch things up a bit today.  Instead of the usual junk about my daily life, I want to talk a bit about education.  Specifically music education. Without getting too corny, I want to say that it’s important we keep education as an utmost important aspect of society. Without it we get generations of ignorance, and sadly I think we all know how that turns out.

Obviously music is one of my passions, and I think it’s just as important for music to be taught to our younger generation as anything else. Great and historic guitarists all started in a similar place, needing guidance and assistance to become guitar masters.  Even with punk rock where guitarists aren’t necessarily renowned for their technical prowess, a fundamental handle on guitar basics is necessary to make any good progress.

Where would we be without punk guitar?

Punk needs guitar, and the children are out future.

Modern times have made taking guitar courses very easy, and as such it is crucial we spread the word of the opportunity for rigorous education for our younger generation.  Where will be in 30 or 50 years if there are no guitarists to take up the reins and be the next Sex Pistols, Clash, or Green Day.  Since it’s so easy to get started, we have to make sure the kids today know about them and don’t get complacent.

I know what you may be saying, what about Punk Rockers?  What about music that’s meant to suck?  And it’s true, you don’t need to be a picasso to try to paint, and you don’t need to be Eddie Van Halen to practice some guitar.  It’s not about perfection, but it is about getting the upper hand and making progress.  Taking some of the best online guitar courses can help you make that progress is record time.   Trust me, you will still suck.  That won’t change.  Having a good foundation will make all the sucking and progress in the future better and easier to accept.  I’ve been there…

It could be as simple as checking out free videos on youtube or studying some basic chords, but getting started early can mean a world of difference.  So get going.  Get moving.  Today!  To start you off I included some video lessons below.  It may be slow but it will be necessary for you to understand the fundamentals.  It’s also pretty easy listening so I wouldn’t worry too much, just sit back and enjoy…

 

With all the kids on smartphones and tablets nowadays, its not right that they don’t use all that technology for something productive. Online guitar lessons and online music education (and other online education) is a perfect way for everyone to take advantage of the internet is the right way.

Black Leather Jackets – A Punk Rock Beginning Part 1: The Sex Pistols

Whether you adore the look of the original punk rock style, or just love the music, no one can debate that both the Sex Pistols from England and The Ramones from the US, formed a brand new genre of music within the mid 70’s. . .

Guitar Building Day Two

A few weeks ago I posted about the machining of a guitar. This time we’ll look at the lamination of the guitar sides. This gives it a nice clean sheen that everyone loves from a good axe.

The video makes its look easy but its it’s not. Usually people, including manufacturers, resort to lamination companies (some companies included in the previous link). Take a look:

Cool stuff, right?! I’m really getting into this stuff, and I’m hoping to start a new guitar soon. I have my cnc ready to go, and will probably end up enlisting a laminating service to do the final steps. Looking forward to it!

Guitar Machining – My Two Loves!

Another mindblowing video of cnc machining of a fender guitar.  I love these timelapses, it makes things look so neat:

 

Machining Hobbies

So my first post is going to revolve around something thats been my favourite hobby for the past 12 years or so, and that is machining, specifically CNC and woodcutting.  I have been using my own DIY cnc machine for the past 8 years and I have to say that it is some of the more fulfilling stuff I do on a regular basis.

To be able to make something with your hands and have that something be beautiful and crafted so perfectly (thanks to ye olde computer in the CNC machine) is an intoxicating thing.  I hope everyone gets to enjoy it someday.  It almost compares to my second passion (not really related) and guitar playing and music.

Now I keep my work to cnc wood milling (I’ve even made my own guitar!), but I’m always fascinated by the more advanced metal machining, take a look at this amazing video of cnc fabricating a metal chess knight:

Boom, amazing.
