Basic Guitar Playing Tips

Hey guys! I have really┬ábeen buried in work since EC died. And now I have some leisure time to noodle on the guitar again. While I’m noodling away, you may find it helpful to improve your guitar playing with these tips.

I love everything about guitars, whether it is playing them or simply admiring a limited edition release. If you are looking to learn for the first time, or brush up on your skills, then here are a few tips to help you on your way. First, you will find playing the guitar a lot more enjoyable if you are inspired, which is where listening to music comes in. Listen to the best guitarists, such as Jimi Hendrix or Slash, and you will no doubt gain more of a desire to learn and improve your skills so that you can sound even half as good as them. Once you have the motivation to learn and practice, then the rest will follow.

Active Axes

Decide whether you want to learn from a teacher or not. This can be a great help for many people, as you can ask questions and be given regular pointers on anything that you are doing wrong. You can search for good teachers online, after playing partypoker, look them up in the Yellow Pages or ask for recommendations from friends. However, being taught is not for everybody, and some great guitar players have been known to teach themselves to play the instrument. This is ideal if you have the motivation and know exactly what you want to do. Buy some guitar books or learning DVDs and get practicing.

If you learn to play by ear as well, then you will have a much better chance of successfully jamming with other people and even making up your own songs. Simply listen to a song very well, and try to replicate what the guitarist plays. This can be difficult at first, but as they say, practice makes perfect and you should soon get the hang of it. The next step is to jam with others, play with passion, and simply enjoy your skills, so get practising.
