I am not musically inclined, though I love to sing. My whole family is into singing. Even though we are not the greatest singers in the world we put our hearts into it. Now that my daughters have shown an interest in music and my eldest has expressed an interest in learning the guitar, I would like to be able for her to hear what she is playing. That is why a tascam recorder can let her record her lessons and act as a training aid for her. I am sure that if she can measure her progress it will help her improve more rapidly.
