Easy Approach to Learn Guitar
The simple approach to learning guitar
The guitar is one of the most coveted instruments. Its sound is distinct and everyone at one time in their life has wanted to learn to play it. You are no exception. You want to become great, legendary even. Before you become the rock god you always dreamed you would be, you actually have to learn to play. If you live in Northeast Philadelphia and are looking for a guitar teacher who will guide, inspire and make lesson fun, give a quick call to David Joel.
Here are some simple ways to get you started on the way to becoming a guitar legend:
Read everything about music and guitar. If you have a particular genre of music you like, read about it. Read about the history of the guitar, read biographies written about guitar legends. Bob Marley once said, “If you know your history, then you know where you’re coming from.” He was a legendary guitarist and musician because he knew exactly where he was coming from. It’s important to know where you come from, what you like and dislike and where the music and musicians you love come from.
To yourself. The bottom line is there are thousands, hundreds of thousands of guitar players who are better than you. You can get so overwhelmed at times that you might feel you will never be good enough. Don’t beat yourself up. Every musician has been where you are and musicians after you will be there. Be nice to yourself and just keep on keeping on.
If you’ve been reading our blog long enough you know we have been extremely repetitive with the word, practice. But the truth is, you need to practice to get better. Don’t stop practicing. Make it a routine, part of your everyday life. You get the idea here how important it is.
Find a good guitar teacher
Good guitar teachers will point out hundreds of details about your guitar playing and improve your craft in ways that you’ll still appreciate it for decades to come. When you look for a teacher, find one who of course, can play well, but who also knows how to teach. Being a good guitarist and being a good guitar teacher are two completely different things. Find someone who you mesh with and who will bring out your musicality. A good teacher will know the pace to take with you and help you find your musical style if you haven’t already figured it out on your own.
There are and have been so many great guitarists through the years. All of them with different styles and sounds. You can imagine yourself being as good as Eddie Van Halen or Jimi Hendrix. But none of these great guitarists accomplished what they did without a commitment to learn and to improve their craft. So keep learning and keep searching for perfection. You may or may not get discovered by the music industry but you will certainly find your niche in the guitar world if that’s what you want to do.
