									Basic Guitar Lessons for Free

Thinking of how to learn guitar without paying such an enormous amount on
an instructor? Problem solved. This article will prove that learning to
play and master a guitar need not be expensive.

There are two practical ways to learn how to play a guitar. First would
be through finding someone who knows all the basic essentials. Make sure
you know him; a close friend, classmate or acquaintance. Possible, your
special someone. He should be patient enough to endure the tireless hours
of practice. Because if he won’t be, you’re dead meat. He could teach you
tips and techniques to proper fingering. This is difficult if you don’t
know anyone but would be a big advantage if you do know someone.

Second practical way of learning your way through guitar lessons is to go
online. It’s a personal mentor, a friend, and a reference material all in
one package. Unlike having a personal trainer, an online tutorial gives
you the freewill to agree and disagree. You can rest if you’re tired.
Give yourself time to practice those hard notes. The best part is, nobody
would scold you with every wrong string you’ve plucked. You are your own
mentor.

Summarized below are 5 easy steps on how to learn how to play a guitar.

Step 1. You’ll be needing a guitar (might be your own or someone else’s,
be sure it has 6 strings), a pick (or your fingers can do just fine),
stool or chair, and an overflowing amount of dedication and patience. To
be able to start playing, you must first know the different parts of a
guitar and where to put those fingers of yours.

Step 2. Exercise your tense fingers. Stretch it. Wiggle it. Relax it. A
tense hand would add up to a tense musician. You must learn the art of
changing notes and strings in a speed that will blend with the song
whenever a new melody comes in. To increase the shifting agility and
strength, practice on the easier notes before proceeding with the tough
ones.

Step 3. Learn the chords. Begin with the basic easy ones. Don’t bother
yourself too much on chords that requires you to use a bar or all five
fingers. That would put so much stress on your part. Some of the easiest
and widely used chords are A, A minor, A major, C, C minor, C major, D, D
minor, D major, E, E minor, E major, F, F major, G and G major.

Step 4. Work on those strumming patterns. The tip on being able to catch
up on the melody is to listen to the song first. Never advance to your
style without knowing the basic. It might turn out hideous and instead of
producing music, it will turn out as a noise. Strumming is considered
easier than plucking. A sequence of “up, down, up, up, down, up” might be
easier to remember.

Step 5. Practice! Practice! Practice! Stay focused on your goal. You
don’t have any intention of producing a perfect outcome. What is most
important is being able to play and have fun. Relax yourself. If your
fingers are growing blisters and your hands are surrendering to a sore,
rest it. Don’t wait till drops of blood comes out of it.
