Learn To Play Guitar Video

It doesn’t matter if you’re wanting to become the next famous guitar player or you just want to be able to entertain your family and friends around the campfire, there are many sources available to you. A “learn to play guitar video” is probably one of the best places to start.  The reason for this is you can actually see the steps necessary as opposed to reading a book which can sometimes be confusing if you are in the beginner stages of learning the guitar.  Just like any instrument, the guitar requires a great deal of patience and practice unless you are one of the few gifted guitar players.  And even the gifted players do a certain amount of practicing to get there chops to where they like them.

A learn to play guitar video takes the guess work out of many of the aspects of learning by showing you exactly where to place your fingers.  It can also show you techniques rather than try to explain them on paper.  Another important aspect of a learn to play guitar video is that you can actually here the sounds and compare them to the sounds that you are making. This shows you if you’re playing it correctly or not. Its like having a guitar instructor right there in the same room with you.  However, it takes discipline on your part to follow through with suggestions that are made on the video and for some this can be trying.  Noone is going to check your progress the next time you sit down to a lesson.  It requires you to be responsible enough to follow through on your own.  You know what they say ‘no pain, no gain’!  And we all know that sometimes practice can be painful. (ouch on those fingertips)

For younger people, one on one lessons can be an important ingredient to learning to play the guitar but once they have a few of the basics under their belt and have proven their interest and dedication to guitar, they will enthusiastically learn.  Players who have a passion for the guitar don’t consider it work at all but pure pleasure.  I remember as a kid, that I couldn’t wait to get home to my guitar so I could start making music. You didn’t have to nag me to do it.  In fact more times than not, I had to be told to put my guitar down and do my homework.

Today with the internet there are numerous resources to find a  learn to play guitar video online and from your home computer.  Searching via google or yahoo can probably find you what you’re looking for but even better if you know a friend who has what you’re looking for and is happy with his or her results, ask them if they would mind sharing the source with you.  You could even get together and learn as a group.  Its always more fun to share your knowledge and licks with someone who has the same thirst for music as you do.  Learning to play the guitar to a very high level can take years but the satisfaction you gain from finally playing a song from beginning to end is indescribable.

The most valuable advice I could give someone learning to play the guitar is to be patient, find some type of course or dvd (there are many online) so you avoid making long-term mistakes, and learn a new song every now and then.  This is important as it keeps your interest level up and you don’t get bored with the same old song time and again.

A learn to play guitar video will implement a structured lesson plan, and keep you honest in your practice time and habits.  Good practice habits are absolutely essential in learning the guitar properly.
