Well, if you got to this article, that's because you probably need some tips for learning electric guitar and in finding an online course which can effectively teach you beginner electric guitar lessons. And that's exactly what I'd like to help you with.
I love playing guitar and have been doing so for over 7 years and I know how frustrating it can be in the beginning. Sometimes people are dragged into investing way above their budget for private lessons, which are sometimes beneficial, but the exact same experience can be found online for a lot less money. So here are 10 tips on how to get started.
1. It is better to find online beginner electric guitar lessons or a good electric guitar course that can be downloaded. The cost is much lower, and you can learn on your own schedule.
2. Yes it is true - practice makes perfect, especially when you want to learn electric guitar. You can't go forward if you give up, especially too soon, before it gets interesting. The guitar requires a lot of effort but at the end you are awarded with a great deal of satisfaction, keep practicing. You will definitely see results.
3. What you need to do is visualize, even before you place your fingers on the fret board, get that picture in your mind of where they are supposed to go.
4. Don't try to hard! - meaning don't try and take it all in at once. Start with the easier lessons and then move on. If you pressurize yourself too much it will become difficult and you may find yourself giving up!
5. Your fingers are going to be doing most of the work, so its important to give them enough exercise that will strengthen them and keep them fit. There are various finger weights that can be bought in fitness shops.
6. Learn a few of the basic chords first and keep playing them. There are several three chord songs that you can be playing in next to no time.
7. Avoid looking at your hands. Try to feel the position and get used to playing in this way, until it becomes second nature to you.
8. Your little finger (or pinkie) is sometimes neglected as the beginning chords don't use this finger. But keep it close to the fret board, because soon you'll be learning more complicated chords and this finger will eventually be in use.
9. If your chords aren't sounding right, then pick the strings of each chord one by one to find out where the buzzing noise might be coming from, then reposition your fingers accordingly.
10. Make sure that you are in the right frame of mind for success. Meaning that you are supposed to have fun! Don't take it so seriously. If you keep practicing with electric guitar lessons you will eventually get there!
So, good luck with your new hobby, keep at it and do it well. Happy strumming!
