Learning Guitar Online Step By Step

It is very common to see people overwhelmed when they are starting to play guitar, this usually happens because we complicate things too much in life, and the reality is that learning guitar is easy when you have the proper method to follow. Learning guitar is easier than most people think.

The truth is that learning to play guitar online is a one of a kind experience if you have the firm conviction to master this instrument. At the beginning it can be a bit difficult, of course, but with a little practice you notice that it’s not as hard as one may believe.

There are a couple of things you need to get started such as a decent guitar of course, a pick, strings, and guitar lessons. Now, my advice is to get guitar lessons online, they are inexpensive and easy to follow; besides, all you need is a computer with internet connection and you are ready to start learning.

One of the first lessons usually is to learn guitar chords. You are probably not going to fully dominate the chords on your first couple of days, but after a week or two you will be able to know all the chords and to change from one chord to another in a very natural way.

After you dominate the chords, minor and major, your next step is to start playing some easy and popular songs; if you do not have a small list in mind yet, there are a few I can recommend such as Sweet Home Alabama, that one is a classic for every beginner.

After you have learned to play two or three songs, your next move should be to start learning scales and finger exercises, and this will help you to make your fingers stronger and faster. In a few weeks you will be able to notice your improvement. Don’t forget that to improve faster you need to practice every day.

Now, after three months of playing guitar you already know a thing or two, you know the chords and you know how to tune up your guitar, this means that you already feel comfortable holding your guitar and you have completed the basics of playing guitar.

Your next move should be to learn how to read guitar tabs. Learning this is extremely easy; as a matter of fact, there are many good guitarists out there that became famous and sold over a million albums without learning music theory. Don’t get me wrong, in my opinion you should eventually learn to read music, but at first if you know how to read tabs you are able to improve a lot.

Another very good idea is to be friend with another guitar player, that way you can exchange tips and techniques to learn even more.

Remember that practice is the key, so practice as often as you can. Now, it can be very tempting starting to play guitar on your own, just going on song at a time, but the truth is you learn more if you stick to a course. Remember that to learn to play guitar online is a journey, not a destination, good luck and have a great day.
