Good guitar resources are hard to come by. When you find them, they can lift your game to a whole new level. Face it, if playing guitar was as easy as everyone says it is, anyone could be a guitar player. The fact is it takes work, and not just any work. It takes the right kind of work. Put in the wrong kind of work and you waste your time. In fact it can actually hurt your chances of becoming a guitar player and staying with it.
I have carefully crafted some very useful tools for beginner and more advanced guitarists and they are now available to a select group. These resources are only for eGuitarCenter members. Most people that try to learn to play guitar have a very difficult time when learning. Examples are usually just a few sentences with no visual aids. What is worse, most of the time, a new player will get lost in the first few minutes. I know because I think I made every mistake possible, just like you are probably experiencing.
Tools To Help A New Guitarist Get On Track
The act of becoming a guitar player is really not hard, and there are no secret methods. You just have to be disciplined to play every day and work a specific items over a period of time. These long term strategies build up muscle strength and finger response, so your fingers will do what you command them to do. It takes a few months to get your fingers to a point where they will behave and do what they are told.
This build up of skills is accomplished by making your fingers touch the fretboard countless times. The more times your fingers press down and release from the fretboard under strict control, the deeper skills you develop. This is really the only way to play at a meaningful, skillful level. You are learning by doing.
I put importance on scales right up front. I do this because scales will help you like few other exercises will. They can and will be the driving force of new abilities. Your skills in playing scales will transfer into ALL THE OTHER AREAS of your playing. Playing chords will get a big boost from scale work. And when you play songs, they will sound much better. This is a central skill and it serves to create strong, accurate and very competent guitarists.
Nothing increases the skill levels of new players like scales. Nothing! If you play scales for an hour a day, I personally guarantee you will become a guitar player within six months. You will not have to be told you are a guitar player, you will know it and so will everyone else. There is no doubt in my mind of exactly when I became a guitar player. I knew it and everyone who listened to me knew it. That is what scales do and every guitar player should play scales every day (if possible). They will pay you back a thousand times.
But scales are just one facet of a well rounded guitarist. Chords are the other half and learning different hand techniques when you are learning will make them much more useful and interesting.
