Learn Guitar - The Beginners Guide to Learning Chords on Guitar
There's nothing quite like learning guitar at your own pace. That's why for many, learning how to play guitar at home is the surest way they can commit to learn how to play the guitar. It gives them the opportunity to learn at the comfort of their own place and at their own pace.
However, not everyone is successful at learning guitar at home. Many have attempted to learn how to play bass guitar for beginner or learn how to read guitar sheet music with little to no success. The culprits mainly are the lack of know-how on setting a time to practice when distractions are minimal, failure to choose an easy-to-follow resource and failure to create a system for learning.
Create a system for learning
Creating a system for your guitar learning doesn't have to be complicated. You just need to set yourself up for a disciplined way of learning the guitar. Start by setting a time frame to learn one lesson and commit to learning the next through a similar time frame.
Remember, to learn how to play the guitar at home could not be as easy as it may sound, but with careful planning and sheer discipline, the luxury of learning at your own pace at the comfort of your own home could allow you to play the guitar professionally in no time.
You know if that chemistry’s right … and I’ve never yet met another guitar teacher who’ll tell you how to pick the right guitar the way I show you.
Now, I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s not starting in the middle, is it? That’s starting at the start! From there, you’re not just playing tunes … you’re building a relationship with your instrument.
How to Learn Guitar at Home
When I started learning guitar the first thing I was confronted with was the seemingly insurmountable task of memorizing all the chords in a monster guitar chord book containing 1,001 chords.
The idea was to learn a chord a week, even at the tender age of thirteen I knew that meant lots of guitar lessons, the first two weeks went quite well, I remembered my chords and started to have some sense of achievement, however tragedy struck the third week when I learnt my third chord for some reason totally forgot one of the chords I have previously learnt.
Latter in my guitar playing life as I spoke with other guitarists I came to realize that apparently this situation was quite common amongst guitarists but at the time I did not know this so I set about learning chords by an entirely different approach.
Here's what I did...
I soon realized my problem was that I was learning random unrelated chord shapes without understanding why I was placing my fingers in these particular shapes and without gaining the essential musical skills that would allow me to connect what I was learning to previously learnt material.
grid 1: = strings 1, 2 & 3
grid 2: = 2, 3, & 4
grid 3: = 3, 4, & 5
grid 4: = 4, 5, & 6
The concept is to take your three note chord and play every possible inversion of that chord exclusively on the string grid before moving on to the next string grid.
Here is the three possible ways to play a C chord on grid 1
That's all the C chords on the first grid (I'm restricting my chords to the first twelve frets of the guitar, once you go beyond the twelfth fret the guitar repeats itself, if you have a guitar with a cutaway obviously you will want to extend your chord playing to encompass all the possible shapes available on your guitar.
