Typing This Hurts

Yes … typing hurts at the moment. Why? Because I decided to pick up my guitar again after not doing so for quite some time.  I’ve resolved to kind of re-teach myself.  I already know all of the basics (although I had to be refreshed on the tuning technique … long story there).  So here I go … working on re-callousing….. (?) my fingers.

The first song I’m just going to work on is “Our God Reigns” by Delirious , because It’s super easy ;).   Any other songs that are good get-back-into-playing-guitar songs?

    Yay for guitar! It’s really fun once the fingers stop hurting. Try “How Great is Our God” or “Blessed Be Your Name” for an easy start. Try HGIOG in either G or A… and Blessed in A. Let me know how it goes 🙂

    Eh .. I tried it before and it wasn’t so fun, because my teacher would only let me work on one song .. and that got really boring .. I think that’s why I stopped, if I remember correctly. (Also, something to do with the way the room smelled .. it made me sick).

    My fingers are starting to re-callous too, but not from guitar. I just started softball again so I’m getting all kinds of blisters on my hands. Hopefully they’ll all just become callouses soon.

    I don’t know much for songs or guitar, but Aura Lee is fun to play and sounds good… doesn’t use any chords though (at least not the version that I’ve played)

    Ah I know your struggle. I started teaching myself with my dad’s nylon string guitar, and that was pretty painful at first. Then I borrowed my friend’s steel string, which was pretty much torture, and gave up on hers. And mine has steel strings but aren’t as bad as my friend’s guitar, and my fingers are all nice and calloused now (:

    Now I have about 20 suggestions for easy songs that you may know, but I won’t tell you all of them just now. Haha.
    – Signature of Divine is a good/easy one.
    – Cannons is super easy
    – Jesus Lord of Heaven is also really easy.

    I gave you a few ideas already.. I still think All in All was one of the easiest when I played with the Cru band. Another fun easy one was… That song by Fusebox.. Every Move I Make. If I remember correctly, that was a fun song to play, and it was easy, too.
