The best way to learn your instrument is to start with a few songs. This way you will have an interesting and rewarding reason to practice, so you'll want practice. I don't believe in starting with scales or anything else that delays you from doing what you want to do - play the instrument.
I can teach the theory but you don't need it to start playing so it comes later, in small chunks and only when it relates to something you can already do.
From just £12 per lesson you'll soon be pickin' and a grinin' so give me a call now: 07411 402084
If you are left handed then you should play left handed, I do. When it comes to strumming you need to use your dominant hand, so if you're left handed, use your left hand. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I do know left handers who play right-handed but they have a strumming style that is mecanical and it lacks fluidity.
American Fiddle Style
The following lessons should give you a good idea of how to approach any American tunes you wish to play. I'll try to cover the tricks and techniques I use for old-time, Bluegrass and Cajun. If you're having problems with them, give me a call.
