How To Play Guitar For Beginners, How To Play Guitar, Beginner Guitar Lessons, Beginner Guitar SongsI started playing guitar with a scale book, a few tabs I printed out from the Internet, and an electric guitar with no amp. I didn’t step foot into a Guitar Center for six months. My only friend that I could get advice from was 30 miles away. Plus, all the information I found was a variation on how loud someone could say, “LEARN A G CHORD!”

I was on my own.

The only edge I had was that I loved music with the guitar in it and was determined to do anything to play it.

However I had many obstacles waiting for me that I didn’t yet know how to overcome.

Information overload was the first one. Simply googling for guitar chords drops you into the middle of the chaos!

It would seem so simple to plug in a few chords and you’re then playing a song. But I quickly found out that there’s more to it then that.

The next thing was bad advice. EVERYBODY has an opinion on what the quickest way to play guitar is, and most of it can be summed up like this: learn how to strum chords. Maybe there’s some exercises but that’s really it. They’ll never help you deconstruct a guitar tab and help you learn how to listen to the music you’re hearing.

Unwise spending is one more.

Gibson and Fender have spent a lot of money marketing their brands across Guitar Center and Guitar Hero, while also signing every big name player they can, all in an effort to convince you that buying this household name will make you play like your heroes.

It won’t.

Guitars don’t come with built-in knowledge of musical fundamentals.

The biggest obstacle that most people have is mental. They don’t have a clear goal to reach.

And it’s often a vague declaration stating, “I want to play guitar!!!”

Okay. What exactly do you want to play?

I’ve spoken to a lot of people who’ve taken up the challenge of playing the instrument and the problems I just mentioned were the biggest reasons why they failed.

But it can be solved with these SEVEN crucial skills……..
