This week's new lesson is on a very popular Rock n Roll song, Johnny B Goode. I remember the first time I heard this song was in Back to the Future, when Marty McFly played it on stage. The song stuck with me ever since, and it was probably one of the first fast paced I learned when I was a beginner 🙂

The advantage of learning to play guitar songs is evident. Novice guitarists start learning the guitar because they want to be able to play the songs they love listening to, this is a general aim of most people who decide to pick up the instrument. If they were to practice, for example, the individual lead guitar techniques day in and day out for weeks, they probably won't stick with the guitar as long as it takes to learn the given techniques, since they won't get any satisfaction out of practicing.

You get satisfaction out of actually playing the guitar, and there are loads of guitar songs for beginners. Here are 2 of the most popular video tutorials we have in our database of electric guitar lessons:

Learning to play guitar, or any instrument for that matter, is amongst the greatest things you can do in life. Numerous studies have revealed that musicians are usually more sociable, get better results in school, and tend to be more open to the world. The guitar is a very popular musical instrument, hence many people choose to learn to play the guitar, instead of the violin for instance.

Learning to be a guitarist without the assistance of a live teacher is quite possible nowadays. Back when I learned, we had just books and tapes to learn through. The world wide web has honestly revolutionized music education and learning, which makes it simple to learn the guitar.

In the age of the net, the only thing you can't find information on is the one you don't do a search for. You'll come across an abundance of content for learning the guitar, everything from understanding how to read tablature, play chords, and even beginner guitar songs. The issue is actually with the abundance of info, because beginner guitarists generally don't stick with a given site and lesson program, but rather, skip between guitar lesson sites, and that is certainly not a really good approach to take.

I have been playing the guitar for roughly 15 years now, and true, I did possess a musical background already, because I already played the piano as well as the trumpet. Even so, the guitar is completely unique, so even though I already knew how to read music, I had to train myself the guitar essentially from scratch. Plus it was not as easy back than, as it is today.

The Internet offers an overwhelming quantity of info on any topic, as well as guitar lessons. Lots of newbie guitar players type the phrase guitar instruction into Bing or Yahoo, and don't know how to proceed with the 10 million results the search engines provide them with. This is really a negative part of learning guitar on the internet, since beginners will usually go from one web page to the next, without actually learning anything.
