Helen Ibe – How I Learned to Play Guitar

I ran into this video by Helen Ibe. She has some great advice for people who are learning guitar. She starts by talking about how much she loves her guitar, and her love for music. She talks about how important it is to get a good guitar, one that is set up properly, and one that you will like. She talks about getting a basic foundation, starting with chords, about learning from recordings of her favorite guitarists, about becoming “one with the music.”

She talks about the quality, not just the quantity, of practice, and about striving to improve. All good advice for anyone who needs a little encouragement, especially beginners. Helen has a channel on Youtube with lots more videos. Check her out!
