With the proper guidance and focus you can learn to play guitar in just 14 days. Do one step a day for 2 weeks along with 14 days you will know how to play guitar. Some of these steps will require that you do a little search engine research or visit a “free guitar lessons” site like my own.
Day 1 – Learn the names of all your guitar strings. Starting with the lowest or thickest string and moving across your guitar strings are E -A -D -G -B – E. Play each string and say its name while you play it. I find it helpful if you “sing” the name along with the guitar string.
Day 2 – Learn how to hold a guitar pick. Either Google “how to hold a guitar pick” or visit my website to learn. Today, practice holding your pick correctly and randomly playing each string on your guitar while “singing” its name.
Day 3 – Learn how to fret a guitar string. Your finger needs to be just behind the fret to maybe halfway between the fret you want to play and the next fret towards the tuning pegs. When you pick the guitar string there should be no buzzing of the string anywhere. Practice playing and fretting your strings at random places all over your guitar neck. Work on it until you get a nice clear tone.
Day 4 – Learn to tune a guitar. Using either an electronic tuner or even by tuning a guitar to itself, today learn how to tune your guitar properly. Find as many ways as possible to tune it by searching the Internet. Learn which frets on the lower strings are the same notes as the open thread above it. For example: the 5th fret on the Electronic string is the same note as the open A line. beginners guitar india
Day 5 – Learn how to play an open G Note. The open G chord uses all six guitar strings and is one of the easiest chords to form. There are two acceptable ways of forming this chord: one that use your pinky and one that does not. Find and practice playing this chord both ways. The practicing point here is to fret the strings that need fretted while allowing the open gift items to ring out. This requires a nice arch in your fingers.
Day 6 – Learn all the notes on your low and high E strings. Starting with the low E chain open, play each fret and say the name from the note. Working your way up the guitar neck the fretted notes are these: F – F#(sharp) or Gb( flat)- G – G# or Ab – A -A# or Bb -B – C – C# or Db – D – D# or Eb – E and repeat. Do the same for the high E, the thinnest string, the notes are the same.
Day 7 – Learn how to do alternate picking on your acoustic guitar. Alternate picking is when you pick a guitar string going down and then the next note or string you pick you pick going up. This is the best way to learn guitar picking as it requires the least amount of effort and is also the fastest way to pick a guitar. Practice alternate picking on open strings starting with just one string then randomly moving from one string to the next picking down one string and then up on the next.
Day 8 – Figure out how to play the open C Chord. The open C chord usually uses all 6 strings although some musicians don’t play the lowest string. There are 2 generally accepted methods of playing this chord, find them both and practice strumming this chord today again making sure that your open strings ring clearly.
Day 9 – Learn all the notes on your A string and D string. Like you did with your two E strings, start with the open up strings and then say each note or sing it, as you work your way up the guitar neck on both your own A and D strings. Note that the 6th worry on your E string is the same note as the 1st fret on your A string. Same is true for your The and D strings.
Day 10 – Learn how to play an open D chord. The open D chord uses a little more finger dexterity than the open G and D chords. You will only need to strum the top 5 or 4 strings to play this chord. Practice playing this note without hitting your low E string.
Day 11 – Learn how to switch from your open G chord to your wide open C chord. Today you will practice switching between your start G chord and your open C chord. Since there is more than one way to play each chord, practice the various combinations until you find the one that works best for you. Practice going back and forth between the two chords, randomly selecting how many times you perform each chord. Go as slow as you have to.
Time 12 – Learn all the notes on your G and B strings. Just like we did before, however realize that even though the 6th fret on your D string matches the first fret on your G string that it’s the 5th stress on the G string that matches the 1th fret on the B string.
Day 13 – Learn to switch from your open G chord and your D chord. Today you need to practice switching between your open G chord and your available D chord, like we did with the G and Chemical chords.
