Essential Tips For the Beginning Guitar Player

Every aspiring guitarist is always looking for advise to help them out as they embark on their journey into guitar playing. I remember vividly, when I was just 7 years old, when I first saw Paul Stanley of KISS providing the perfect balance of being a solid rhythm guitar player while doing his own flamboyant homage to his hero, Pete Townshend, complete with perfectly executed jumps, kicks and arm swings.

I knew right away, that is what I wanted to do,However, to become the new rock icon, I need to learn how to play. The most common questions that arise are about.. practice….practice.. practice. When, Where and How is always a topic of discussion so my advice would be to follow the advise of instructor Charles Sedlak. Charles is an international recording artist and a recipient of a Ph.D in Music Education.

It is far more productive to practice for fifteen to twenty minutes every day, rather than a few hours, a couple of times a week. As you complete several lessons, it is a good idea to review the previous lessons for half of your practice time and work on new lessons the other half. Also, slow down your playing to your weakest point. In other words, practice each lesson as slow as you need to, so each chord and note is played clearly. Speed will come naturally.

Great resources include your local music store and fellow musicians. These resources will help you get a great start and keep you moving forward. You will also have a firm understanding of the guitar. Experiment with new ideas of your own using the material you are working on and build from there. Express yourself and let your personality be heard through your guitar. Most of all, have fun!
