Learn And Master The Guitar - Is It Worth It?

May 9, 2008
The guitar, has made itself known worldwide, as the symbol of rock and roll. Everyone associates a rock guitar, with rock and roll. Increasingly popular, this instrument is now the new definition of cool for many millions of youngsters. Someone who is able to play this instrument is perceived to be of a cool nature. Come on, who doesn't appreciate someone who can play the guitar well?

Lots of people find it very difficult to learn and master the guitar though. Most people I have come across think that there is some sort of special skill needed or that the person must be naturally musically inclined. This is definitely not the case. The instrument is not difficult to learn at all. If you want to master the guitar, all it takes is some proper instruction and a little bit of time.

Anyone can learn or master the guitar with a little bit of work. You do not have to be Jimi Hendrix, nor Andres Segovia. In fact, most kids learn a great deal of guitar skill, within their first year of playing. If you are persistent in your practice, you may very well be playing popular songs within a couple of months.

Your best bet for learning the guitar would be to start with lessons. They can be lessons of your choosing. You may decide that you want to take online lessons, or perhaps you may wish to see a local instructor instead. I would suggest a combination of the two. Online lessons, or a DVD set are a fantastic way to learn at your own leisure. By combining this with a personal trainer, you are well on your way to playing the guitar at a decent level.

When you get a little bit of practice under your belt, you can begin to learn a popular technique called guitar tapping. This was made famous by Van Halen. It is nothing more than using your fingers in a hammer fashion on the strings. This can be combined with strumming to give an overall good effect.

If you want to know a little bit more about this technique, there are plenty of books about it, as well as internet sites. Steven Krenz's program, is a great place to start for newcomers and experienced players alike. Guitar tapping, strumming, or perfecting chord arrangements are all things which each and every player can work on.

No matter what kind of music you are into, playing the guitar can be a very rewarding experience for anyone. The gift of musical talent is something that can be learned by just about anyone willing to sit down and give it some time. There are so many thousands of songs that you can learn as well. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to song selection. If you are involved with jazz music, there is plenty in that area, as well as rock. Remember, that practice makes perfection.
