    Some Great Tips For Learning The Guitar

    The World is filled with people who want to learn the guitar. In this day and age, the guitar has become a symbol of “coolness” and “class”. As such, there are hordes of people online looking for quick and easy courses and tips to better their playing skill. 

    Here are some tips just for all you budding guitarists out there.

    • Learn the Parts of the Guitar: It is important to first of all familiarize yourself with the parts of the guitar and their functions. The Guitar is made up of 7 main parts. They are the head, tuning pegs, fret board, position marker, sound hole, body and bridge. 

    The head is the top part of a guitar that provides anchorage for the tuning pegs. It also supports the strings as they are attached to the tuners. The tuning pegs are used for tuning the strings when they become out of tune. The fret board is the part that bridges the body and the head of the guitar. It also contains the position marker which helps the guitarist in locating chords.

    The sound hole is positioned at the centre of the instrument. The strings pass over the hole which amplifies the sound. The body is the whole casing of the guitar.

    • Understanding the Fret Board: The fret board is the most important part of the guitar. It contains all the keys from A to G. Without the frets, a guitar cannot be played. 

    Open chords: Some of the chords are open, meaning one has to open the chord while playing to produce the required tune. Some of these chords include E on the first string, A of the second string, D of the third string of the fourth string C of the fifth String and F of the sixth string.

    Barred chords: Also known as closed chords, one has to press the chords before strumming to produce the desired tune.

    • Music Intervals: A good guitarist should learn the music interval of each song he/she is trying to master. Listening to a wide variety of songs can help you hone this ability to identify intervals. These dictate the strumming speed. Slow paced songs have wide music intervals. Alternatively, songs with a faster pace have narrower intervals.
    • Changing of Strings: This is easier to do then it sounds. String changing is part of instrument maintenance and something you’ll have to do eventually. The first step is to use the tuning pegs to sag the string which makes for easy removal. Proceed to remove the strings and replace with new ones. Lastly, tighten the tuning pegs and you’re done.

    How to Tune: The tuning pegs are used for tuning the guitar. By rotating the tuning peg, you tune the string that has been attached to that specific tuner.
