How To Begin To Learn The Guitar Online
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most people have New Year's resolutions, I know I do. For some people is to learn the guitar online, or any other musical instrument. For others is to stop smoking or getting into a gym. It is for sure tough, that among the top ten resolutions for 2011, one of them is to learn something new.

Now, to pick up an instrument is very much anything else, the more difficult step is to begin. To start playing, all you need at first is motivation and a few hours to practice. In the past, it was necessary to have a lame text book or to find an experienced musician, now, due to the facility to access the web most people have, and the variety of courses out there it is not hard at all to begin your learning.

So, what is lesson number one? Buy a Guitar. Sounds pretty obvious, but some people usually what they do, they know someone who has the guitar and they borrow it to start. Unless the person that borrows you the guitar has one more guitar, this is not a very good idea, because eventually he or she will want his or her guitar again and you are going to pause your learning process.

Lesson number two: know how to tune up your guitar. When you have learned to tune up the guitar, the sound you will make by playing the chords correctly will be so good that you will love it, besides; no one likes the sound of an instrument that is not tuned up. Also this is a great way to educate your hearing and later on you will be able to know the notes even if you are not looking them.

Lesson number three: learn the chords. OK, we have a guitar, we have it tuned up, next step is where the real learning process starts, besides, this is the point where the real fun starts. First it is needed to learn the major chords: C - D - E - F -D -G-A-B, then the minor chords. Once you have learned the chords you can begin playing easy songs, there are quite a few that you can use to practice, and maybe, you will also find that you have a singing voice, wouldn't that be great?

Lesson number four: Warm up exercises. What are these exercises? With them you are going to start to feel pretty lose, you'll be faster and your fingertips will adapt to the strings.

Lesson number five: Get a good teacher or a great guitar course online. If you have someone that can personally teach you that is good, but if you do not, there are some powerful alternatives online that are a real time and money saver to continue your learning process. Do not forget, to continue practicing is the only way to learn to play guitar.

Having video lessons to follow is a smart thing to do because you will have a guide that will lead you to the next level at your own pace. Later on you can specialize into the music type of your preference, whether it is country, blues, jazz, rock, metal, Spanish... Most guitar courses online are very complete that way. Have fun.
