If Guitar Is Your Biggest Dream....

Aug 17, 2007
If you dream of taking up a guitar in your hands, you need to learn some basics of playing a guitar. It's a difficult phase as you would rather wish to play beautiful songs as soon as you get your hands onto the guitar. After all, with all of the MTV influence out there, one would wish to become a rock star. But to learn a guitar, you have to learn the basics of playing it. Learning the basics will take some time and if you take a bit more of the time then this is an indication of you to become a better guitarist later on. After all, every famous guitarist would have learnt the basics of playing the guitar at some point in time.

Learning the guitar basics involves different things including the scales, the fingering etc but the most important thing is the need to learn all of the different parts of the guitar. Firstly you need to understand the composition of guitar body. The guitar body is the large wooden part of the guitar. The body of a guitar is connected by a thin part called the neck. Near the hole of the guitar body, the bridge is located. The strings of the guitar begin at the bridge and end at the pegs, which is located on the head of the guitar.

There are small metal pieces called the frets that are located at various intervals along the neck of the guitar. As soon as the player presses the strings into the frets at various intervals, the strings vibrate and produce different pitches. The other thing you need to learn as the guitar basics is how to hold a guitar. If you are right handed, then your right hand would be used on the body of the guitar and your left hand will hold the neck of the guitar. So you will use your left hand to hold the neck and press the strings into the frets at different intervals while you will use your right hand for strumming. And if you are left handed, then you will reverse the position described for the right handed person.

It is important to understand that spending more time on learning the basics will produce the better guitarist out of you. That is the key that will make you achieve success rather than failure. You got to walk before you can run...
