4 Important Tips Needed For Improving Guitar Skills
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The one and alone truth is that when a kid grabs a guitar, he or she pictures himself (or herself) rocking like the great legends of rock on a big stage with fireworks and special effects, and maybe it´s just a kid with a guitar (or sometimes a broom or something similar) in front of a mirror. If you are like me and you started the same way I just described, you´ll probably remember that feeling, that period when you used to let your imagination fly away and everything was about having fun.

There are usually two types of guitar players, the professional ones and the ones that play it as a hobby, and both type of guitarists do it for the fun of it that’s for sure, but my point is that the second type of guitar players start playing guitar and since it is not their main priority, they stop learning, or sometimes they even stop playing for long periods of time, so obviously they do not get better with time, sometimes they actually get worse.

Now, if you picked the guitar a long time ago but never actually got serious at it, this is your moment, you can always start getting better, all you need to do is have a plan to do it, a plan to improve your guitar skills. The best way to go is to start doing things the right ways, meaning, that you have to leave old habits behind. For example, what happened to me when I started is that since I only learned to play guitar chords, when I started learning more difficult songs I never used my pinky finger on the fretboard, I was not used to it at all.

It was only when I started following a course that I found out the way to use your pinky finger to play guitar correctly when playing solos. Ok, so let me give you important tips to improve your guitar skills.

1. Make a plan: there is a saying that I like a lot, it goes like this “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”, the only way to get where you want to be is by knowing where you’re going, no way around that. So, figure out what type of music you want to get better at, and start doing things in little steps.

2. Get a new guitar: if it is within your possibilities of course, this is a great way to start getting better, its literally like a kid with a new toy, you are going to start playing it and you will not want to put it down for a while.

3. Find a guitar learning program or a guitar teacher: with a teacher or a course to follow you are going to take advantage of the advice of the experts and figure out what you need to dominate before taking the next step.

4. Practice, practice, practice: You can have the best teacher, the best guitar, the best guitar course, but if you do not take action you won´t be able to improve your guitar skills, so you need to have enough time to make sure that you will be able to take action and practice what you are learning.

Winners are the ones who don’t give up, what makes the difference between those who succeed and those who have their guitar as a living room accessory is the will to become the best and the effort they put in what they really want. I wish you good luck and have a great day.
