One of the most common questions I get from my students (both online and offline) is:
Tom, what's the easiest way to learn guitar?
If I had a dollar for every time I heard that 🙂
So, my young Padawans, let's have a look at this question in detail.
Can learning guitar be easy?
If you are looking for an easy way to learn to play guitar in 10 days, you just got to stop and ask yourself a few things.
- Can I really build a complex skill in a week?
- And if I could, wouldn't everyone be playing guitar like Slash?
Don't be silly now. There is no pill you take and wake up the next day and become awesome at guitar. Are you looking for a quick and simple way to learn chords, scales, and whatnot? Well, sorry, but there isn't any. You have to work for it, and it will take a while.
Guitar stars like Eric Clapton, Slash, BB King make it look so easy, right. Yeah, but they've been playing for decades. How long have you been playing?
