This blog is meant for:

  • People that want to exercise their creative muscles.
  • People that have had difficulty learning guitar in the past (it’s probably not your fault).
  • Music teachers tweaking their approach.
  • People that are simply interested in music.


The categories

The blog has four main categories. These are found under categories on the right hand side of the blog page. They are:

  • guitar
  • composition
  • songwriting
  • thoughts


The songwriting area is meant as a standalone, step-by-step guide for absolute beginners. Or for more experienced songwriters who are looking for a bit of theory.

I know. Theory is a dirty word for some people. But I present it in a way that’s relevant to writing songs. I don’t present it for the sake of presenting it.

The guitar and composition areas give you ideas that will help you get better at those things. These
two areas are intended for beginner to intermediate students. Advanced musicians may find the information
useful for teaching purposes.

The thoughts category is a meant as a catch-all for things I have to say that don’t fall into the other three categories. Things like originality, craft, creativity, etc.

Have fun!
