5 Tips On Teaching Yourself Guitar

posted in Entertainment
  • 1. Make sure you can read music

    It helps if you've learnt an instrument already, because you can understand music. If you haven't it doesn't matter too much but maybe buy a book on the treble clef and learning how to read music because there's no point confusing yourself when your trying to learn chords if you can't read music!

  • 2. Learn songs you know and like

    It really helps if you know how a song goes, because you'll get the hang of it easier and it's really cool to be able to sing and play together. Also, if it's a song you like you'll be more enthusiastic to practise!

  • 3.Take time over learning chords
    To get a really authentic pace and rhythm going, you have to KNOW the chords and make the transition between them crisp otherwise it sounds messy. When you learn a new song, just practise the chord sequence over and over until you can do it with your eyes shut.

  • 4. Make sure your happy with your equipment
    You'll need: a good guitar, a pick, a capo and a stool. The guitar is obviously important. A pick is optional but if your not used to pressing or strumming on strings (if you don't already play a string instrument basically) you may find it painful. A capo is again optional but loads of songs use one so it is useful. A stool yet again is optional but good for posture.

  • 5.Practise, practise, practise!
    It says it all really. It takes 21 days to develop a habit so practise every day for 21 days, or as many days as you can, and you'll be a pro before you know it!

  • Thanks for liking! Hope these helped!❤️❤️
