Imagine without 'F'



Imagine without 'F'

Guitar made easy

Taught by a Jeff

For one who is lazy


To master a hard chord

To learn all there is

Across the whole board

It's so easy to miss


There are many hard ones

My fingers have stretched

I did try my best

My guitar's now all scratched


My tune's not quite right

The voice now not strong

Since family's all gone out

I'll play loud and long!


I'll get there some day

As sure as can be

Will be able to play

Beatles' great Let It Be.

I am learning the guitar from online sources. Some chords are easy, some are b----y difficult! I found a piece, the Beatles' Imagine which didn't require the F chord. But I know I'll have to master this chord and other more difficult ones. Will get there some day.

    Lol. Brilliant. I can remember learning that chord. You wait until you get in to jazz chords! Now they are hard. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    • Rozina

      Thank you. Will be a while before I get there....

      wonderfully creative, a fun read
      thank you! dear poet
      and all the best! share with us a sound cloud recording
      of you playing
      whenever you feel ready

      • Rozina

        Thank you Mek. It'll be a long time before I reach that stage. But my daughter who also learnt online is getting really good and plays jazz now. I don't know how to share a sound cloud recording - I would love to share her piece if allowed to.

        From a person who is currently learning the guitar, this is spot-on. I mean I have trouble trying to play most chords that require more than 3 fingers. I love it though, and it feels so good when you finally play a song correctly all the way through. Practice makes perfect!

        • Rozina

          Thank you Rocky. Yes I practise every day for a short while each time.

        • Paul Bell

          Great to see you're learning the guitar, this gets you invited to all the parties, and before you know it, you're jamming.

          • Rozina

            Thanks Paul. My favourite Beatle is McCartney and John Lennon is a close second. Your cheeky conversations with Teddy have given me a good chuckle this morning.

            Good words Rozina, learning any instrument is difficult but very much worth it in the long run, that F Chord will soon be with you.

              Thank you.

                No guitar knowledge here, but I did enjoy your " never give up" attitude.
                Keep on practicing and best of luck. - Phil A
