Top 8 Reasons To Play Guitar
Top 8 reasons to play guitar
Playing guitar is just about the best hobby you can have. If you already play electric or acoustic guitar and are looking for a little vindication of your obsession, or you are a beginner looking to find out whether you’ve chosen the right instrument, we have some validation for you. Here are reasons to quiet the little voice in the back of your head. Oh! And take guitar lessons in Philadelphia at the David Joel Guitar Studio.
Rules of attraction
Whatever your purportedly purist goals were, you had visions of adoration racing through your mind when you figured out the riff to Enter Sandman. After all, it pays off when the object of your affection sees how well you can use your hands.
An alternative to playing sports
Too short and skinny to play football? Pick up the guitar. Life just gets better, as there are years of gigs, jam sessions and musical explorations ahead.
Be the life of the party
People are drawn toward guitarists in social situations. It’s the guitarist’s responsibility to lead the campfire sing-alongs as well as make nightclub audiences go crazy.
Form a band
It’s a great way to meet friends and gain attention. If the combo is good, you could have fun doing gigs for years to come.
Become a psychologist or manager
Once in a band, you get to observe the twisted minds of musicians. If you figure out how to make the insane drummer, the egomaniacal singer, insecure bassist, and snobbish keyboardist get along and show up for gigs on time, document it and put it on your college application!
You can’t play chords on a violin. You can’t slur notes on a piano. You can’t play harmonies on a sax. It isn’t perfect but the guitar has a vast range of musical possibilities for those who take the time to learn it well.
Slay your idols
Prove you are more inventive than Hendrix and more athletic than Angus. You will dominate the guitar universe and lay your heroes to waste! Don’t attempt to be a god though. Strive for guru status, develop a cult of followers and teach them how to play!
If you wade through all the other reasons for playing and make it a lifelong activity, the realization will hit that you possess the gift of communicating with people through the language of music.
Have you ever walked away from a gig or a jam session and felt as if you had just been in another world because your playing was so good? Well that, right there, is the ticket to nirvana. Need help achieving it? Take guitar lessons in Philadelphia at the David Joel Guitar Studio. With one on one lessons with a highly educated and very skilled musician and teacher, you will be well on your way to achieving rock god status in no time.
