Why DO YOU want to play Guitar?
In order to play guitar you need a good why. What do we mean by that? Well its simple, when you first start out playing it will seem painfully slow. You fingers and hands will fatigue and actually become a little raw at the tips.
We all want to just sit there with the instruments and jam out our favourite tune right now, but that is just not how it works. Even a simple three chord song with an easy strumming pattern can take several hours for an absolute beginner. This is because your brain has to program new patterns and movements over several practice sessions just to make the chord transitions smooth. Your hands have just never made those shape before so everything while seem awkward when you first pick up the guitar to play.
This is what makes having a why you are want to play guitar so important in the first place. When you meet the first few obstacles on your way to learning that new song, you will be more likely to stick with the instrument, and be more willing and motivated to keep up with your practice.
Again, this is why having a teacher or an online learn to play guitar course can be an excellent resource as you start on you path to becoming a guitar playing wizard.
Play Guitar Like The Masters
Ya Ya, we get it! Guys like Nuno Bettencourt make it look so easy that it seems like anyone could just pick up a guitar and rock out a simple tune in a few minutes... BUZZZ (wrong!!). What you see in the video above represents thousands upon thousands of hours of practice over years and years.. So, why do you want to play again?
All of that said we are not trying to discourage you from making a start. The rewards for being able to pick up an instrument and play at will are immense. Even if you are only playing for yourself and your cat, there is a soul soothing elixir that comes with the sound of self made songs. Anyone can learn to play guitar but not everyone will learn to make it sing the kind of music that shakes the soul.
