At first it is a lot of fun practicing your musical skills at guitar, as you step into the unknown there are countless exercises and techniques to keep you busy for quite some time. But as you learn more and more you might find yourself going in circles, searching for new challenges. I’m not saying that you need to quit playing guitar, but there are numerous musicians who play a plethora of instruments.

Many guitarists dream of building their own axe. Who wouldn’t want to rip out sublime solos on a self-made guitar, like Brian May. Or chug out blues-soaked rock and roll on a cigar-box guitar, like Bo Diddley. The idea of making my own guitar from scratch always appealed to me.
The Ez-Fret is a great accessory that attaches to your guitar in order to help you play chords with ease. Because there is no question that playing the guitar takes a certain amount of skill.
Many who try learning on their own are able to get a few chords down, even a riff or two. Very few people possess the ability to pick up a guitar for the first time and play music from the get go. It takes hour upon hour of torturous practice to reach a level to which one might consider themselves to be a musician.
