Learn To Play Guitar Quick And Simple – Learning To Play Guitar _____________________________________________________________________________________

By John - Once you have decided that you are going to learn to play guitar, look into all the different learning options. There are many different styles of guitar lessons available to choose from - personal guitar lessons from a private tutor; group guitar lessons; online guitar lessons; guitar lesson videos; or DVD guitar lessons. Decide which learning style will be best suited you personally and how quickly you wish to learn. Irrespective of the format you choose, for beginners, I highly recommended a routine of short consistent lessons throughout the week, with regular daily practice. It is very likely that initial guitar lessons will teach the fundamentals, such as how to hold your guitar and pick, what to call the different parts of your guitar and how to tune it, scales, chords, modes, strumming patterns, finger picking, simple theory, basic song composition and how to play one or two simple songs, and possibly how to perform minor repairs to a broken guitar.

The basic requirements for starting guitar lessons are - a six stringed guitar, some guitar picks and an armless chair. It doesn't matter what sort of guitar you start to learn on, simply choose your favourite sounding instrument - acoustic, electric, classical etc. Buy a variety of picks so you can find which brands and sizes suit you best, and of course, if you buy ten or so, you'll have spares for when you lose them! Generally speaking, beginners tend to prefer a medium gauge pick.

Make sure that your guitar is in tune before your first lesson. Anyone who plays guitar will be able to show you how to tune one, however, if you were unsure of your ability to tune it, a guitar tuner would be advisable. Guitar tuners are inexpensive to buy and easy to use, showing you accurately how to tune each guitar string. In your first few guitar lessons, you will probably learn three major chords such as G major, C major and D major. Once you are confident in playing these chords and switching from one to another smoothly, you will be able to start learning how to play songs that use these chords.

Make sure you practice all you have learned from your lesson for at least fifteen minutes every day. Most important of all is scales and chords, including switching between chords smoothly. Also get used to tuning your guitar. Don't be surprised to get sore fingertips for a start. After a while your fingertips will become less sensitive. Should the sensitivity continue it might be a good idea to try lighter strings that require less pressure, until the skin on your fingertips becomes thicker. As you progress you will learn strumming patterns, minor chords and many more songs. In no time at all, you will be playing power chords, bending strings, sliding, playing bar chords, performing hammer-ons, pull-offs, chord inversions, palm muting and much more. You will be sounding like a true professional.
