Jay Shaner's Tips for Learning a Musical Instrument "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on December 8, 2012

Learning a musical instrument can be very difficult and frustrating for people since it's so different for most other activities. But Sacramento indie musician Jay Shaner gives tips on how to speed up the learning process on both piano and guitar. He's been playing piano since a very young age and over time has become more of a guitarist. We talk about fingering, scales and mixing scales up to make it sound more interesting for the beginner.
