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.

Learning the guitar is a never ending journey. I've been playing for many years, and I still learn new things on a daily basis, including new techniques that I can use while playing, or making up new guitar songs. Starting out on this journey is undoubtedly the hardest part of it all, since you basically have to teach your fingers and mind a brand new skill, sort of like learning to walk.

Playing songs = motivation

Playing songs = motivation

The initial stages of teaching yourself to play guitar can be very demotivating, since in the beginning, each new chord, chord change, barre chord, etc. will be a struggle. This is why over 60% of newbie guitarists quit withing a very short amount of time. And this is why it is very important to keep yourself motivated during the early stages of your career as a guitarist.

I've found that the best way to keep new players motivated is to have them playing songs on their guitar right from the beginning. Through learning easy guitar songs for beginners, you will practice while making real music, which is what motivates you to practice even more. There are many guitar courses that have you doing rigorous exercises, and that just does not work. Why?

The more songs you can play, the wider your sphere of guitar knowledge.

Learning easy to play beginner guitar songs as soon as possible is one of the best things you can do to help you learn the guitar and advance your guitar skills. Why?

Start playing songs!

Start playing songs!

To get your hands used to the guitar, you'll need to practice a lot, but if you just do practice drills all the time, you'll quickly get bored of the guitar. I've seen this with lot of people, but it's logical actually. Most people pick up the guitar because they want to make real music, not just do drills up and down a scale for example.

This is where songs come in, and the earlier, the better.
