Don’t panic – it’s normal for your learning curve to slow up periodically. Every player, regardless what the musical preference, recognizes the signs. One day you realize that you’ve played the same song for some time, and you are not getting any better. To make it worse, you don’t try to add other tunes to your repertoire. What’s going on here? You’ve hit a full stop, attained your level, you’re stuck, doomed never to get better and attain your ambition, which is to be hailed as the greatest guitar player that ever played.
1) Any guitar with steel strings on it is NOT suitable. There was a time when certain styles of Country and Western and jazz guitars were advertised as “Spanish guitars” for some unknown reason. (I think because they have roughly the same shape as a classical / flamenco guitar). If you look hard enough you may even find a few books of the 1920’s , 30’s, and 40’s which have plectrum style music for these “Spanish bass guitar“. The equation seems to be: Flamenco = Spanish music = let’s play it on my grandpa’s Spanish guitar. Now where did he put those plectrums? Or something like that.

Bieber’s career has really blossomed in a short time. His first tour took place on June 23, 2010 and started in Hartford, Connecticut. Even with all the success, Bieber does still encounter problems. While recording his second album, he noticed that his voice had gotten deeper. He commented that he has to deal with a cracking voice just like any other teenage boy, and has even had to lower the key in his song “Baby” because he can no longer hit all the notes.
Focus on your picking hand technique as well as what you’re doing with your fretting hand. Remember- there’s picking technique to think about as well as hitting the notes!
You are mostly on your own when you do it online. You may be able to approach some sites that you can ask questions but you may not get the answer you want. Unlike online learning, attending a class allows you to ask questions and get answers until you understand.
If your speaker cabinet can only handle 200 watts at 8 ohms and your amp is pushing 350 watts at 8 ohms, then you can easily overpower your speakers and blow them if you are not careful. The bottom line is to make sure your Amps wattage is LESS than your speaker’s handling capabilities.
