Learning Foo Fighters songs on your guitar is not just about size or shape of your guitar. It’s to do with the way it feels when you tuck it close to your body, about the way the strings respond to the way you touch them, even the way it smells … Think of it more like a first date!
Do You Want To Learn How Play Foo Fighters Songs?
If you want to play like the band Foo Fighters, then you are going to either have to learn the tabs of their songs, or really enjoy their music.
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.
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.
Learn Guitar Lesson - How To Play Amazing Guitar Solos Using Simple Chord Shapes
Learning guitar is a highly rewarding and enjoyable musical
experience. For some people who are overworked during the
day, their guitar lesson is a rare opportunity to relax. But
...let's face it, learning guitar can seem like a daunting task
for most of us.
Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of first learning guitar is
that it is seemingly impossible to play anything that actually
The traditional way of learning guitar is by taking private
lessons from a guitar teacher. Alternatively you could try
learning songs by ear and teach yourself by tediously working
your way through slow, thick, boring text books. This is a
frustrating, time consuming way to learn.
Thankfully the invention of the internet has produced a wealth of
information and multimedia resources.
The last few decades has seen a remarkable growth in the
popularity of rock music and guitar playing has become pretty
attractive for many.
Today the guitar is everywhere; a versatile instrument - adapting
itself to almost any kind of situation, and ever ready to unite
with meretricious gadgetry. Victimized by it's own success, it
has become something more than a musical instrument - like the
swastika before it, it has become the symbol of a social
revolution! The ultimate emblem of grooviness! Like John Wayne's
six-gun, Mary Poppin's umbrella or Fred Flintstone's "yabba-
dabba-doo", it is now an object unto itself!
Learning guitar is a duel edged experience giving students the
opportunity to hone their organizational, social interaction
skills. Learning guitar is about going through a series of
stages. Speed develops naturally as a by-product of accuracy.
Unlike the old ways of learning guitar music, online lessons lets
you have all of the fun of learning how to play the guitar,
without any of the old-fashioned frustration.
Online guitar lessons can be useful and convenient, however I
would recommend getting at least some face-to-face tuition, as a
personal teacher can spot (and correct) flaws in your technique
that would otherwise go unchecked.
Again, be aware it's just as frustrating online trying to
learn from eBooks,software, or cheap introductory videos with
little useful content. What you're really looking for is high-
quality, step-by-step video instruction that takes you from
beginner (or intermediate) all the way through advanced
