Top 10 Tips for Learning to Play Guitar

The Top Ten
1 Learn to play your favorite songs
2 Practice every day

Practice to a metronome. Make yourself a routine. Just hold it for a month and see insane results.

3 Play it with your own ideas
4 Learn chords

For those of you who know the really talented guitarist Ashlee Juno, who happens to play my favorite guitar brand, Fender, thanks to her I learned so many new chords. I was watching her tutorial on Ariana Grande's Right There ft. Big Sean and I'm learning and watching more of her guitar covers. I have to say, watching them looks a lot easier and easy to play.

Like once, she played Luther Vandross's Always And Forever and I immediately knew most of the chords to play. I want to keep practicing guitar every day so I can get a Fender of my own. When school starts back up again, one of my classes is guitar, so I'm super excited for grade 10! If you know Ashlee Juno, keep watching her covers and tutorials! She explains really well and has such talent in guitar playing.

Peace out!


5 Watch lesson videos

The most important thing to expand your guitar style is very important.

6 Watch playing & jamming videos

This is very important to see people just jamming. If you keep watching, your influence and ideas will come together.

7 Play scales

The first time I heard about this, it scared me off. It seemed very complicated. I learned everything but scales, but believe me, they're easy. I started practicing scales after five months of playing guitar. Learn one scale, any scale. It's going to make you faster on the guitar and more accurate.

8 Learn guitar theory

Start with knowing guitar notes on frets, starting with the thickest string. If you find it complicated, start with chords.

9 Listen to songs that have guitar
10 Go to a good teacher
The Contenders
11 Practice in front of mirror
12 Create your own songs

This step should come after months of learning the guitar. You can learn two or three chords and sing and make a song, but if you want to be a real guitarist, add more. You can slide, bend, and pick some suitable notes. Try to solo. That will improve everything in your guitar learning.

14 Choose your guitar pick

Do you want thin, medium, heavy, extra heavy, or extra thin? Choose your style. For a beginner, start with thin or medium because you won't be soloing and playing scales from the beginning, and that requires heavy picks.

15 Increase your influences

Try to love all the rock bands and listen to them to increase your influence.

Don't play pop music too much on guitar. They are only some chords and have little technique. You will find yourself repeating what you're doing on the guitar. But of course, you should learn your favorite pop songs.

Focus on high-quality rock music with rich guitar playing.

16 Focus on new things

Challenge yourself. It may not be fun, but it will make you better.

17 Jam with someone

Very helpful. It's like doing homework with friends. Sharing guitar theory and style is very helpful.

18 Play all types of guitars

Try everything: electric, acoustic, bass, classical.

Playing bass and normal guitar (acoustic and electric) is quite different. In bass, you will have problems with thicker and longer strings. But the bright side is it has only four strings.

19 Practice while standing

Pick a position when you play. If you want to perform sitting, then practice while you are sitting.

20 Buy your favorite guitar

If you like AC/DC, then buy a Gibson SG like Angus Young. If you like Slash or Jimmy Page, then buy a Gibson Les Paul. Or you can choose based on your taste by trying guitars. Gibson, Fender, PRS, Jackson, Ibanez, and Taylor are all great.

21 Work on your amplifier

If you play electric, practice on the amplifier. Try to get the best sound.

22 Choose a genre
23 Rub your fingers on a table to avoid blisters
24 Study different guitarists
