The first step and most important thing in learning guitar

By: Don Lee

Most of the guitar lovers playing guitar for few years but still unsatisfied with their progress.They feel like still stand at the starting point and can't enjoy their playing.This mainly caused by most of them don't build up a strong foundation at the begining.I found that some of the guitar learners even just playing guitar for one to two years but are more better than so many that playing for over five years.This is the foundation problems.Me myself as an example when I started playing guitar long time ago.

The secrets of learning guitar are mostly based on the foundation.To have a good foundation for future success,we need to consider three important factors :-

1.Listening :

Ear training is a MUST basic training that every guitar learner should have.But most of them avoid this as quite a boring and time-consuming job.Without a good listening,we are unable to move to higher level.
To overcome this problem,I suggest that guitar learner may choose one of the well-known Ear-Training software on Internet.I found that there are few really good software that train your listening step by step and really FUN.You feel like playing game when you learn.

2.Daily Practice : (Both fingers and ears)

Daily practice is another thing we should do.(Ex.Fingers exercises,practice for the basic scales)
I suggest that beginners practice PENTATONIC SCALE at the starting point because this scale is the most simple scale that only have five tones.Try to practice 20 to 30 minutes daily.Remember that even 20 minutes daily practice is more effective than few hours of unconstant practice.Relax and concerntration are important.

3.Look for a teacher :

You may find either private guitar teacher or guitar lessons on internet.For my opinions,learn guitar from internet may be better because of the convenience of time and much cheaper.There is just one question of learning from internet that what lessons to choose,what lessons are really work.Myself as a guitar lover have been playing guitar for 15 years.I do the research on guitar lessons from internet over 5 years for myself and my groups and I've spent a lot of money for it.
Recently I just built up my own little web page telling guitar lovers a few guitar lessons that really work and would like to share with all of you.
