Learn to Play Guitar Tabs - The Easy Way
Anyone who is willing to give it the time required can learn. But depending on what type of guitar you begin your journey on, the initial path can be a bit different. Below are the pros and cons of learning on either an acoustic or electric guitar.
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.

Even wondered how experienced guitarists seem to navigate their way through even the most difficult chord changes?
What they are playing does not seem to be physically difficult; in many cases the shapes look strangely familiar.
So what's the deal?
How do they know how to play all these complex chords?
- and how do they do it with ease?
The BIG secret is "plurality".
Now, I bet you weren't expecting that!
What the heck is plurality - it sounds like something you'd go to the doctor for treatment.
A "plurality" means a multiple functions.
Here's an example using the note "C", if we consider the many double functions that note could have in the various major scales.
Of course this is only just the tick of the musical iceberg.
If we extended our C chord one more step to create CMaj9 we would have many more possibilities.
CMaj9 = C-E-G-B-D
Can you see them?
CMaj9 = C-[E-G-B]-D
E minor = E-G-B
and G major G-B-D
CMaj9 = C-E-[G-B-D]
Again the same concept could apply as before the you could play G major chord over a C major background to create a C Maj9th harmony
You could also move between an E minor or G major chord /arpeggio to create a feeling of movement on a static C major vamp.
