piano lesson for a guitarplayer- composing
I love my instrument, guitar. Unfortunately, when composing it is hard for me to have an option on a guitar when you can hear melody over chords. Do you guys compose mainly on the piano? Is it necessary to take piano lessons for somebody who plays the guitar but while composing needs to listen to chords and melody at the same time?
please, write comments
I play piano, actually keyboard, badly, but, I love it. Yes when I compose melody it's on the keyboard I can see what is developing on the keyboard and have a hard time "seeing" that on the fretboard.
Our Daughter gave me lessons right at first and then Alfred's # 1 took over. When I play I play from lead sheet and wing the chords, much like I do on bass guitar.
Lessons are a must if you go the classical route, however, after your fingers know how to get around on the keyboard - doing your scales, etc. There is enough help at the music store with "special big note" books and "stuff" on the Internet that you can get going. Of course a teacher is the best route.
The keyboard is a great help with theory.
I found that if I try to compose guitar music on the piano, often it doesn't work well for me.
I do it the old fashioned way; guitar in lap, pen in hand, and staff paper on the music stand.

Keyboard for me. Much easier, use which ever is best for you.
Helps if you understand the theory involved with harmonizing a melody line. Google can find several sites that will go into detail.
