Beginner Guitar Interviews With Professional Musicians
All guitar players--even professionals--were beginners once. This seems like an obvious statement, however, when you are watching your favorite musicians perform on stage it can be difficult to imagine that they were beginners who once struggled with the same issues as you.
If you have ever wondered how professionals got their start on the guitar, what they found difficult, and how they conquered their doubts, problems and technique issues on the guitar then you will find these interviews very helpful.
Take note especially of the mental approach they used to overcome problems and improve on the guitar. Professional guitar players have trained not only their hands, but their minds as well. Becoming a pro guitar player does not happen by accident or luck!
Use these mental approaches and attitudes in your own development on the guitar--even if your goal isn't to become a pro, the process is the same for becoming a great guitar player.
