A day in the life of James Cavanaugh - or a few

the guitar

Alright, so I am starting to get better at my guitar, and I am also realizing the power of knowing your chords more and more.  My friend that was teaching me from the start was saying how I should just learn my chords, and I had a little song to practice my G, D, E, C chords.  Now I have a new song to practice Bm, A, D, G, and F something.  I was looking at some youtube videos on how to learn Blackbird, and I came across this kid Sungha Jung.  This little 12 year old Korean kid is amazing.  I was really impressed with him.  Just check out how he plays blackbird…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCT9xnlhldM&feature=related

I  ended up watching most of this little kid’s videos this weekend, instead of working on the website as much, he is an amazing guitarist.  I also learned how to play blackbird almost all the way through.  Working on the pentatonic scales too…Slowly but surely I will be good at guitar.   I was looking at some videos on chord progressions, and they were talking about major minor 7ths and major major 7ths, and all this terminology that I had no idea what was going on.  I was thinking it might be a good idea to get on that, understand what they are talking about a little better.  I think I need to have a picture of the notes of the guitar mapped out, so I can see things easier.

Anyways, thats all I have as far as my guitar update goes.  Maybe soon I’ll post a video of me playing blackbird, once I have it down pat.
