That's a very good idea to play the electric guitar on the headphones. Which brands of headphones do you recommend? I'm cuirious, because my better headphones broke and I need new ones for music as well as I want to learn the electric guitarWith a modeler amp like I have, I use studio headphones almost exclusively. Especially for recording, it's just become my favorite way to listen overall. I always know that I'm not disturbing anyone, but I also know that my signal is going into the DAW on my laptop without any other noise disturbance compromising the sound. I know that companies out there try to push headphones that are mega expensive, but honestly, I have some $170.00 pair and then a $55.00 pair that are pretty impressive. I use one more for everyday playing, and then the others for when I do fine mixing and mastering (all sounds - music or film audio / foley fx). Really, the only thing you are looking for with headphones is their frequency response ranges. Ones with better bass range, for example, they will give you fine points of clarity for low end that you may be after. Etc. etc.
What can you do?I can’t play guitar solos and noted riffs are difficult for me. I also can’t do pinch harmonics (The so-called “pig squeals.”) nor play by ear.
You should learn chords first and practice songs that consist of chords only or are based on them.I can’t play guitar solos and noted riffs are difficult for me. I also can’t do pinch harmonics (The so-called “pig squeals.”) nor play by ear.
I know sometimes being with someone one on one is hard. If you can find a good instructor that is the best way to learn an instrument when you are having trouble on your own. Sometimes you can get a student or a friend and it can be a routine time each week which keeps it consistent. Or if you don't want someone else teaching you. Doing it in a routine way helps. Instruments are about routine and discipline. I always say if I can learn it anyone can and I have played guitar for years. You are NEVER old for anything. Don't give up on yourself. You can do it. Be unique and listen to the others do it your way. You got this.I picked up my guitar last night to practice with it. Unfortunately, I still struggled with it and messed up while attempting to play certain songs.
Despite getting some inspiration to draw again after re-reading Chainsaw Man, I feel too daunted at the same time to draw again.
Am I too old (I am 35.) or possibly mentally impaired?
