					Learn to Play Electric Guitar in Minutes

Some say that electric guitars are difficult to play but if you know the
right techniques, you can learn to play electric guitar in minutes. You
have to prepare yourself for some lessons because you’re about to l earn
many new things. If you know a bit of the lessons that you’re about to
encounter, you can determine your progress.

You see, there are three factors that you need to be aware of before you
even start electric guitar lessons.

Number 1 Factor

Once you have the electric guitar, don’t think about your worries in
playing such instrument. First, you must sit down and study all the
things that you have to know about the guitar’s fret board. Be sure to
purchase a diagram of an electric guitar in musi c stores and choose the
one that shows the different notes. You must be able to memorize all the
notes. Don’t try to learn it in one day because this will be very boring.

Instead, spend at least ten minutes each day in learning the different
notes while playing. You can’t learn to play the guitar unless you’ve
memorized each and every note. Ninety percent of beginners achieve
success because they memorized all the notes.

Number 2 Factor

The second factor still doesn’t involve electric guitar playing. This
time, you need to concentrate on your ears. If you want to learn to play
an electric guitar, you have to train your ears to listen. This is
essential in the learning process. Ear training involves playing the
notes and then singing it one by one. Play the note first and then sing
it. Once you’ve mastered this, sing the note first and then play it.
Determine if you got the note right. For the ear training, you can do
this ten minutes a day, just like memorizing the notes.

Number 3 Factor

The last factor involves muscle memory development. Do some chromatic
exercises but only the simple ones first. As you practice, try to
incorporate scales as well. If you want to become a good electric guitar
player, muscle memory development is essential. Just like the two other
factors, spend tem minutes every day for this activity.

These are the three factors that you should know before you take up any
guitar lessons. If you are already familiar with these factors, then the
upcoming lessons will not come as a surprise to you. You can learn all
the guitar lessons easily.

So you see, you have to be patient and you have to devote some of your
time in order to learn all the lessons in playing an electric guitar. The
three factors seem very easy but if you don’t put your heart into it, you
will not learn anything. Concentrate and have the right attitude. Make
sure that you’re also motivated so that you can learn the notes or
chords. If you have the right attitude, you will learn electric guitar
playing in a few days.

Several minutes each day can take you a long way. By doing this, you can
have fun while learning. Don’t overdo each of the factors involved in the
learning process. Otherwise, you will not enjoy learning to play an
electric guitar.

Remember, you shouldn’t focus your attention to playing the guitar
immediately. Memorize the notes, do some ear training, and muscle memory
development.
