Guitar for Beginners: The First Things to Master

You decided to learn how to play guitar, but do you know how to, or you just want to try it out because you thought it would make you cooler? 

Just like any skill that you’ve acquired, you had to start from scratch. Of course, that also applies to playing the guitar.  

And again, just like the skills you have now, you developed it naturally. So, you don’t have to try too hard to learn the guitar. 

Here’s a natural way to learn how to play the guitar without pushing yourself too much. 

Parts of Your Guitar

You cannot learn how to play the guitar if you don’t know it in the first place? Just like how you learn to drive a car, you need to know the parts of the guitar in order to play it the best way. 

From the most common terms used, strings, to the very deep words that even some players don’t know, that is, if you want to be different from the rest. 

Holding Your Guitar

This is probably already obvious. You can’t use a guitar without holding it. Do you think you already know how to hold a guitar? 

If you think so, then you’re probably right, but not quite. There’s a proper way to do it. 

Position your left hand on the neck of the guitar and your right hand at the sound hole. This will result in the best sound you can make. 

Tuning Your Guitar 

Do you think you’re making the most out of your guitar? If you don’t know how to tune it, then you’re utterly wrong. 

Learning how to play the guitar using an out-of-tune guitar will make it harder for you to learn. Make sure to learn how to tune a guitar before anything else! 

Changing the Strings of Your Guitar 

Once upon a time, your guitar had shiny and clean strings. Now, you have rusty ones and obviously not that clean. 

Believe it or not, that will compromise your ability to learn how to play the guitar. The sound will sound different than normal. 

Additionally, strumming can be harder due to the rough surface. 

These are the absolute first things you need to master, let alone learn. If you don’t know about these things, then you’re learning experience will be compromised. Don’t rush to playing the guitar immediately.
