Free Guitar lessons for Beginners

 

Almost everyone has fantasized about performing music in front of a huge screaming crowd at some point in their life. For me, I’d always dreamed of playing guitar with the same mastery as Jimmy Page or Mark Knopfler. Sadly, I could never stick with guitar practice.  I ended up quitting multiple times for a host of reasons: the material was boring, my teacher moved too fast, my teacher moved too slowly, my fingers were killing me, my wrists were sore, I wasn’t making enough progress, and so on.

Then my friend Jake Ruff taught me two simple exercises that changed everything, and I’ve been able to stick with guitar ever since.

Some guitarists proclaim that you need to tackle music theory first, while others will tell you to learn sheet music while you’re practicing chords. I found it most effective to focus on a few easy exercises, while minimizing boredom and pain. In other words, the process for learning that you enjoy the most is the best one, even if it isn’t comprehensive.

Comprehensive comes later.  First, we need to get you hooked.

Forget about all that stress and worry. Introducing the new Chord Buddy guitar learning device.

Chord Buddy is the fastest way to teach guitar for students ages four through adult. It offers success to the students right away and captures their love of playing the guitar. Chord Buddy’s patented learning system attaches to the neck of the guitar and allows students to play chords instantly by pushing a button. As students’ progress, the buttons are removed, like training wheels on a bike, and the student independently plays the chords. A Chord Buddy student will first focus on developing a steady beat, rhythm, and strum patterns in their right hand. While pushing the buttons students will develop finger strength and dexterity in the left hand.

Tips on Learning Guitar the First Time

 

1. You will feel clumsy. Remember when you first learned how to type? You wanted to hammer out 100 words per minute, without ever making an error. The reality? You constantly had to look down at the keyboard, and you’d get frustrated whenever you made a mistake. Guitar is the same way. As much as you’ll desire the ability to play all your favourite songs beautifully, your body and brain simply won’t be able to. Your fingers will move slowly, your hands will feel awkward, and the sounds coming from the guitar will not be easy on the ears. Relax, and give yourself permission to suck. Allow yourself several weeks to build “muscle memory” – getting comfortable having your hands in positions they aren’t used to.

2. Your fingers will be sore. Expect the tips of your fingers to hurt for at least a month while they’re developing calluses. If your fingers get extremely sore, take a day off, and never play until your fingers bleed.

The pain you’ll feel is largely unavoidable, but you can reduce it by using a capo (a clamp you fasten across the strings of the guitar. The most important thing, of course, is to not quit playing altogether because of the pain. Whenever you want to quit because it hurts your fingers too much, say to yourself, “Justin Bieber taught himself to play guitar before he was 12.” Yes, that’s right. That effeminate kid successfully got through the same pain you’re feeling, and so has every other guitar player on the planet. You’re more than capable of pushing through.

3. You need to practice for at least 10 minutes each day. There is no quick path to mastering the guitar, but there is a fast track to failing: a lack of practice. During the first month, you need to make playing your guitar for at least ten minutes into a daily habit. Playing every day will help you build calluses faster, and increase your comfort level with the instrument.

When I first started, I aimed for at least two 10-minute practice sessions each day. I found the most convenient time to practice was while watching TV. The two exercises you’ll be focusing on won’t require intensive periods of concentration, so it’s totally fine to watch your favourite show while strumming away.

First and foremost, you’ll need to buy a guitar. I know it’s obviously possible to learn with a friend’s guitar or one that’s been given to you as a gift. However, I found that my desire to learn increased substantially only after I put some skin in the game. Buying my first guitar only cost me $100, but spending that amount made me much more committed to learning.

I strongly recommend starting with an acoustic guitar, rather than an electric. With an acoustic, you don’t have to plug it in to play and there’s less of an upfront investment (i.e. you don’t need to buy an amp). Learn on an acoustic first; if you decide to play electric later, the transition will feel much easier than it would have had you only learned to play electric.

Next, you’ll want to buy a capo. This is a clamp that raises the pitch of the strings. You’ll be using it for a different purpose, but to start, it will help reduce the pain in your fingers.

Now that you’re all set up, it’s time to take a seat in a comfortable chair and get in position to play.

The most important thing about your posture is to stay relaxed. Because you’ll be pressing down hard on the strings, you’ll often feel your upper body tense up. Take a deep breath and only maintain pressure in your fingers.

One final note on your positioning: Your thumb should not wrap around the neck of the guitar; it should be pressed against the back of the neck. Sure, you’ll see a lot of professional guitar players who don’t comply with this, but it’s much easier on your hand to learn chords this way.

How to Get Good at Playing Guitar Chords

Have you been having troubles playing or switching guitar chords? This article will reveal the secret to playing and switching guitar chords.

Get-Good-at-Playing-Guitar-Chords-Step-1

Remember there are only 2 shapes on the guitar. All chords are made by combining these 2 shapes.
Get-Good-at-Playing-Guitar-Chords-Step-2
When playing a new chord, place your middle and ring fingers down first, and the rest will follow easily.
Get-Good-at-Playing-Guitar-Chords-Step-3

Now, pick two different chords.

  • For this example we’ll use Am and E. Position your fingers on the Am chord, then strum 8 times (count 1&2&3&4&5&6&7&8&).

Get-Good-at-Playing-Guitar-Chords-Step-4

Switch to the E chord, but don’t stop strumming.

Get-Good-at-Playing-Guitar-Chords-Step-5

Once you switch chords, count until you get the E chord, then start from 1 again.
Get-Good-at-Playing-Guitar-Chords-Step-6

As you practice this, the number between chords(the amount of strums it takes to get the switch right) will decrease.

Tips

  • It might be hard to keep strumming if you have already got into the habit of stopping between chords. never stop strumming.
  • It could take a dozen or more tries to get a switch right, but don’t give up!
  • Here are some easy chord changes:
    • C to G7
    • E to A-minor
    • E-minor to A
    • C to F
  • Try and practice all of these chord changes as described above about 5 minutes each, taking a 5 minute break in between.
  • It is expected for it to take a few tries, and for a while it’s not going to sound very good.

Chord Buddy Review, Does it Really Teach You How To Play Guitar?

 

Chord Buddy Review (as seen on Shark Tank)

Chord Buddy is claimed to be the World’s best guitar learning system, so I jumped at the chance to review it.

 

 

My oldest son has asked quite a few times to take guitar lessons and my wife has always wanted him to take them.  However neither of them has come up with a solution to how to afford such lessons. When I checked into them it was going to be about $100 a month, which was 4 lessons. Compared to soccer at $80 for a season that is a big hit. Especially with two other children that would of course like to participate in their own recreations.
When I was asked if I wanted to review Chord Buddy, the World’s Best Guitar Learning System, I thought to myself this may be the solution to my problem. A more affordable way to help my son learn the guitar with at home guitar lessons. As a parent we want to give our children everything. I think it would be AWESOME and a great experience for my son if he could learn. I have  always wanted to play the guitar myself so I thought this would be  perfect way to bond.
IMG_0043
The product came with two books, a DVD, and a guitar hero like gadget to place over the end of the guitar. One book is a collection of 100 sounds – country, pop, gospel, and bluegrass. The second book is an instruction guide, however I much preferred the instructional DVD.  Here is a close up of the “guitar hero” type gadget that is the basis of the system.
chordclose
My son and I sat down to give it a shot. Despite the fact that the guitar needs tuning, by the end of the video my son knew what he needed to do. The video did a good job of showing him how to utilize the tool and learn to play. As for the tuning there is a section as well with that. Don’t ask me what you need to do because I myself did not watch the video. My biggest problem now is not how to AFFORD the lessons but how to get my son to sit and practice. After all the wanting and needing of the lessons we can not get him to set down and practice. He tends to pull out the guitar when a friend come over so he can show off how he knows “how” to play. Though he hasn’t played a song yet. You can buy a kid a Chord Buddy but you can’t make him want to practice. Typical teenager of course.
IMG_0041

The system:

The great thing about the Chord Buddy is that you can make music from day one.  This book will provide an organized, step-by-step practice guide to get you playing on your own in just two months, with only one hour of practice per day.

Section One: You get started strumming and singing six great songs right away, and along the way you will be introduced to different strumming techniques.

Section Two: You will learn some special tricks with the Chord Buddy to make you sound like a pro.

Section Three: Using a systematic process that removes one chord tab at a time, you will learn to form the chords on your own, without the assistance of the Chord Buddy.

So I asked my wife what she thought about the Chord Buddy. She said with practice she thinks my son could learn to play, the video showed him what he needed to know to learn how to play, it is just a matter of getting my son to practice. I definitely think anyone in the same situation as me, not wanting to pay for lessons but wishing they could give their child the opportunity of learning to play the guitar should first invest in the Chord Buddy and give it a try. It is so much cheaper then lessons and very easy to learn.

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – D and A7 Chords – Lesson #1

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – D and A7 Chords – Lesson #1

This is the first video in my Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Guitar Course. In this course I will take a beginner from the very first chords on the guitar to playing simple songs. This course is aimed at the absolute beginner, but if you’ve been playing for a little while you’ll find some tip here that will help you progress more rapidly.

I deliberately kept these videos short “bite-sized” to make them easy to watch and fun to work on. I’ve included the basics of strumming, changing chords quickly and smoothly, correct fingering, common chord progressions and some basic guitar theory. If you watch AND practice all the lessons you will have a good foundation on the guitar.

Learning guitar is not hard if you have a structured guitar course to follow  like this one and are willing to put in the practice time. Watch, take action and learn to play your favorite songs on guitar.

Guitar Chords for Beginners Lesson # 1 – D and A7

In this first video from my Kickstarter Guitar Course,  I’m going to show you the two basic foundation chords. We’re going to start with D and A7. Take a look at the example in the video on how to finger the D chord. With the left hand and my first finger on the third string behind the second fret. Second finger behind the second fret on the first string and third finger in between. Look to see that your fingers are angled up and down, not flattened down and you should have some space in there.

Try to keep your hand relaxed

If you’re going to practice just take your fingers off and put them back on. You want to hear nice clear notes, keeping as close to the frets but not on top. I like to put the tip of my thumb at about the middle of the back of the neck. Apply just enough pressure so your hand could fall off if you relaxed a little more.

Moving On to The A7 Chord

Let’s go learn how to play the  A7. Move the first two fingers over one string. Then you take the third finger off. That’s the first finger, second fret and fourth string. Second finger, second string, second fret. So that’s the third string open in between. Now move those two fingers over and play the D, back to A7 and back to D.
