Robin Trower: A Touch of Magic

It’s purely coincidental that this issue’s cover goes to the second Teel’ and ‘touch’ player in a row – last time Billy F. Gibbons, this time Robin Trower. Coincidental, but not an accident.

As guitarists it’s easy to get caught-up in technique and theory and while you are often applauded by your peers and contemporaries (when they’re not, being guitarists, whispering behind your back how they could have done it so much better!) you’re leaving your bewildered audiences miles behind.

If you want to learn to play guitar, then this is of course totally fun! To make a start well, you’ll have to make some choices. In this article, I put the 8 most common mistakes that are made by guitar playing beginners for you one by one.

1. Never start on an electric guitar

I think it is not advisable to start to learn to play with an electric guitar. My preference always starts with a Western acoustic guitar. When playing an electric guitar, you are always dependent on an amplifier, which makes it more difficult to transport a whole tune. What you also miss out on an electric guitar is the purity of an acoustic guitar.
