this may be kind of weird question, but I still need to ask. Playing guitar or any instrument is art, and art is by definition something creative. It’s kind of strange that I ended in art (guitar) as I am introverted and non-creative type of person. My personality type is ISTJ according to 16personalities website and I do agree. I am extremely by the book and adore rules and following instructions! For sure, that something isn’t really associated with an guitar player and arts in general. I also lean heavily conservative in my worldview so especially as youngish person (30es) it’s really hard to even find any guitarist which is even remotely conservative. In church we have pianist and although our Reverend did mention I could join one day in our little choir, there is still issue of introversion.
As a by-the-book person I do love Justin’s lessons! He gives clear instructions what to do and what not, although now in Grade 3 I kinda don’t like that he is giving me more freedom (weird right?). I loved when he said: “practice x for y minutes”, “practice y for x minutes”. But now I am kinda getting lost. Most certainly I won’t do any songwriting (aside noodling around random melodies for my soul) as it’s primarily good hobby and stress relief for me, not professional endeavor. The sound of ACOUSTIC guitar is awesome and I prefer it as it’s simple (electric sounds, well, artificial and I don’t like too many options).
So my question is if anyone can relate and if yes, how do you go about playing guitar as such person? Do you just play your favorite songs or do you end up doing something creative in the end… I read some article that there is really very little conservative, introverted guitarists. Especially the combination of both and that their options are really limited. Mostly to worship songs and country, which I both love.
