Now, this sounds amazing, but it’s as simple as that! I have been playing the guitar for almost 50 years, and most of my life I have used regular tuned guitars (what is called "standard E tuning"), just like probably 90% of all guitar players. As just about every beginner, back in the day, I had to learn all the "chord shapes" (or "finger shapes"), that is how and where to put the fingers of the left hand on the strings in order to get nice sounding chords. These are necessary if one wants to play the guitar. But it takes soooo long to learn and practice these chords, right? And it hurts the fingers, too, at least until you develop callouses on your left fingers. If you already tried to play the guitar, maybe even took a few lessons, you most probably already know what I’m talking about. It just takes too long.
I have been playing the guitar in bands back on high school, I have started to compose own songs about 40 years ago, and I have performed songs – both covers and my own music – and recorded music for all these years now. I have over 1600 music videos on Youtube alone. You can also listen to my original music on Reverbnation.com/mikemalak/songs –> Reverbnation.
