When you first decide that you want to learn to play guitar, things can be a bit confusing. You’re filled with all this anticipation, but most people don’t even know where to start. And that can be very hindering. Well the very first thing you need is a guitar. Yup, before you can understand guitar you actually need to have a guitar.
A beginner guitar
plenty of people actually question what a good beginner guitar is. My answer is that there is no true beginner guitar. Though, I do have some advice for why I think that beginners should get a certain kind of guitar. Personally I think its good to learn guitar on a pretty low-grade guitar. The reason is if you learn on a cheap guitar then, not merely will you appreciate the more expensive guitars more, but you will also feel the distinction when you upgrade, and perhaps realize that more luxurious doesn’t essentially mean better.
Also Its simpler for a beginner to learn to play guitar on either a classical nylon string guitar or an electric guitar. The reason is that the strings have less tension and are easier to play without harming your fingers. myself I learned on a really cheap steal string guitar, even today, it is actually the hardest guitar I have ever played. That guitar completely calloused my finger tips because I played it every day for a year, till I finally upgraded. Now I don’t recommend you get a guitar that is tough to play, trust me if I had a choice I would rather the strings be easier to play. But when your guitar isn’t perfect, you definitely value better guitars, regardless of the price. But if you’re an acoustic guitar fan especially if your on a budget I recommend that you learn guitar on a classical guitar, and many are pretty cheap.
So now you have your guitar, now you need to learn to play guitar. So, what is the ideal way to learn guitar? There are lots of options out there for the new guitarist. however, which one is the best? Well lets look at the options.
You can learn from a teacher.
If you learn from a private teacher it could be good because you have someone right there with you who is a professional and they can correct you when you mess up. However teachers can be very expensive and they are not always reliable.
You can learn to play guitar from a guide
Guitar guides are full of information, and can help you understand chord patterns very easily. Nevertheless books can not successfully teach certain techniques, especially if you need to hear the technique. However for theory, scales and chords books are superb.
You can learn by video
With video you can actually see whats going on and correct your techniques. However with videos you feel like you have to keep up with the teacher and your playing and willingness can suffer from this. Especially since its hard to follow tabs or notes when they keep moving…
You can learn to play online
Now If you have a computer this is surely the best choice. Learning online combines the best of all the previous options. And its usually less than the price of one or two private lessons. in addition some courses even have certain integrated software that will make learning feel like a video game and makes guitar easy. The only thing missing is someone who is actually right in front of you correcting you.
