I have posted a new guitar lesson video on youtube and also on the Guitar with Annie blog, which you can see here.
This is a special video which is designed to give some ideas for how to create your own music in the key of E minor. There are two simple chords and a variety of right hand techniques given. The sounds of the guitar are explored. Many guitarists are not aware of all the different sounds that can be played on the guitar.
This jam is designed to be different each time the player does it. The ideas are designed to be mixed and matched for a unique creation every time.
The techniques are all shown as well as verbally described in the video.
The mental health focus of this particular jam video is relaxation and individual creativity. The ability to create something that is truly your own, and to make it fit your mood, can be beneficial for helping with depression and anxiety.
If you know anyone who has a guitar and wants to learn, please link this to them.
I just posted a free guitar lesson on my guitar with annie blog. You can see the lesson here.
You can see me with my guitar and hear me singing. Even if you are not up for playing guitar, you may get a kick out of seeing the video. It is not often that we see each other “in person” so to speak.
The song is Leavin on a Jet Plane by John Denver, This lesson is for beginner to intermediate. If you are a brand new beginner with no experience with chords or chord diagrams, don’t worry. I am planning to make a post that explains about chords , how to place your fingers and how to read and understand the chord diagrams.
The bunny is hopping around in here somewhere. I was watching New Girl on Netflix. It is a very funny sitcom. That is what I was doing while I was making dinner. Then I did the guitar video.
I am trying to keep busy with projects being as my boyfriend broke up with me and I am struggling to emotionally get through the week. It was a devastating collapse of my brain for a few reasons. So, I thought since I have been meaning to record some lessons, this is a good week to start that.
So, check out the guitar blog and let me know if you have any suggestions for songs that you think a lot of people would like to learn. For Skype guitar lessons, I can learn whatever songs the student wants to do. For the blog, we will stick with songs that will hopefully be ok for many people.
I still have a spot or two open for anyone who wants to do a tryout lesson or two, because I am still getting used to teaching via Skype. I will do a couple of more free lessons for people this week and next week, for anyone that wants to learn something on guitar while I am learning the Skype.
I am also thinking of some other ideas for connecting musically over Skype, but the ideas are still forming in my brain. I will let you know what I am thinking as my thoughts come to me.
