What's up guys, i picked up an acoustic guitar in Rome a week back. Been practicing with it every day, but i wonder what are some step-by-step tips to pick it up quickly. I used to play as a kid for a short while, and i know the basics, but ideally i want to be able to jam some tunes and make a euro or two when i can.

Hi,
Depending on your goal your objectives will change. If the plan is to make few euros on the road only, I suggest learning songs that people know ; Beatles, Bob Marley and other Famous songs.

If you wan't to jam with people, I suggest learning blues songs and basics trough youtube and learn the Blues Scale.
Youtube is a good friend if you can access it.
If not ; ultimate-guitar.com is an amazing ressource for chords and tabs.

If you can sing as well it will help you make more money !

Thanks,

Have fun

Jeremy

Thank you for the info! Really, i want to learn to jam a couple songs for the buck first, and gradually evolve through practice every day. If i catch some wifi out here i will definitely check out some youtube tutorials. Otherwise, that website should do just fine.

Cheers lad!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I don't represent this site at all, but "supposedly", the Couchsurfing site is getting their asses whipped by the Covid-19 situation and may soon shut down, just a heads up for anyone who also uses it
