How would you rate your ability to express your emotions on guitar? If you are like most guitar players, you probably would like to be able to play in a more free and expressive manner. Unfortunately, most guitarists try to do this by simply looking up tablature, practicing guitar techniques, or trying to imitate their favorite guitarists. This is NOT a good approach if you would like to be able to truly express emotions on guitar.
One of the keys to highly emotional guitar playing is developing a good understanding of ‘why’ you should choose to play one note over another.

The result will be a much more clear musical expression of your ideas! Read more about expressing emotions on guitar in this article on how to create emotion in music.
