Play What You Feel Like Playing The Guitar


Today, I didn’t feel like playing…

Lol…

That’s why I wrote This article the other day.

So I picked up the Guitar during my practice time….

And I played some songs that I wanted to play.

I love listening to Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers.

Now this is Blues Based Gospel…

So it is on the more simple side….

3 chords gives you most of the songs…I have written about that here.

So I popped up my IPHONE and looked at a couple of Soul Stirrers songs…

And just started to sing them.

Picking out the chords as I went along.

Sometimes the chords weren’t exactly right…but if they were close, it sounds allright.

And then I picked out another song.

What this does for me?

It helps my ear….

It helps my timing…

It helps my vocal…

I must admit though that my chording skills are not improving because I am still mostly playing in the key of A. But hey at least I am doing something and remember the first rule of practicing…

Doing anything is better than doing nothing…

So go head…get some basic songs and attempt to play 3 or 4 chord versions of the songs…

I ain’t talking about grabbing a Tab…but I’m talking about figuring it out yourself…
