How to Get Mad Guitar Skills Quick!

Seems like every guitar player has went through a guitar teacher for lessons, and to get good. My question to you is: Is that really necessary? Sure if you wanna learn about guitar theory and all that jazz, but most people won't ever need to know guitar theory to get good or even famous. I know a few people that actually got good at guitar(including myself) by just following these simple steps.

Teach yourself how to read tabs. To me that's all the music theory i'll ever need to know. I taught myself how to learn tabs. It's actually pretty easy. There's six strings and every fret has a specific number, and that number will show up on a specific location on a time from on one of those six strings. There you go! It's that easy. See you have saved yourself loads of money by not taking a music class, or guitar lessons. Your welcome.

Buy a scale book. These are the single most powerful strategies for getting good fast, and I mean super fast. Just practice one scale a day, and see how good you are after two weeks. When I was practicing scales, I noticed a dramatic difference in my skills the very next day! See, every song, no matter what instrument is based on certain scales, which are certain notes arranged in a pattern that sounds good together. These notes you will hear in every song, whether it's electronic music with synthesized instruments, or a full band. These scales are really common, and if you practice them often, you will start to be able to hear those scales in the music and start playing along, because you've practiced that scale so much. So it comes down to, practicing scales equal practicing every song known to man. And again, you've saved yourself hundreds of dollars by buying a ten dollar scale book, and have gotten way better, and way faster than a guitar teacher could have gotten you, by yourself.

So there you go, just wanted to break away some misconceptions, and help you realize you can get good at guitar, regardless of your situation. (unless you have arthritis) So go out buy a scale book, go online and find a good tab site. There's many legitimate tab websites out there so i'm sure you won't have any problems. Take twenty minutes a day, and practice. Twenty minutes is really all u'l need. See how good you get. Rock on!
