I am learning guitar all by myself for the last couple of years, scavenging information from internet. But since I am learning all by myself, I don't know I am missing.
My assumption is, in a learning process, i.e. a guitar, there is a well known/ generally accepted path that everyone follows when s/he is in a structured environment, i.e school or a tutor.
So what are the contents of that outline/path? Is it just basic chords and basic music theory? and then do whatever you feel like doing? or there is more to it.
Note : My focus is to play acoustic finger style guitar, with steel string.
@MikeiLL I want to improve my play mostly because I like playing it. I've always been mesmerized by the following tracks,
- Acoustic Alchemy - Rain Watching,
- Andy McKee - Rylynn,
- Antoine Dufour - These Moments,
- Calum Graham & Don Ross - Indivisible,
- Justin King - Knock on Wood,
- Thomas Leeb - Asha,
- Ulli Boegershausen - Mad World ,
- Sungha Jung - I'm Yours.
- Blackmore's Night - Under A Violet Moon
- and many more.
My end goal is to play something that I can record and sit back, relax and enjoy. It also includes learning to play the above mentioned tracks. But they look like a long shot, so why I plan to take one small step at a time.
Another part is, I am an international student here in the US and I am here alone. I am long way from home and the rather sad part is I don't know anybody here to talk to. So music in the one that keeps me company.
