Get plenty of practice. It may seem obvious, but practicing is the best thing you can do to learn how to play the guitar. Many people neglect practicing or get discouraged when practicing grows tedious or fails to show immediate results. Keep at it! It may take time, but practice will make perfect.

 

Playing the guitar is notoriously hard on the fingers. You may experience cramping or blisters, particularly if you play for long periods of time in the beginning. While it may sound silly, it is important to "work out" your fingers to strengthen them. You will notice a world of difference!

 

Be sure you're having fun while you practice playing the guitar. You're only doing this because it's something you want to do. Make it an activity that you look forward to, and not a stressful part of your day. This can make you bored and you'll stop practicing. Instead, practice and play music that you love and that speaks to you.

 

When you are learning to play guitar, instead of learning all of the chords at once, try to learn the primary chords in each particular key. For instance, start with the key of C Major, and using a chord chart, learn all the chords in that key. This will help you to learn songs faster, as you will be able to play the chords needed for a particular song, based on the key it is written in.

 

Many beginner guitarists become discouraged by the pain, and muscle cramping that often accompanies the first few weeks of learning. Check out the internet, or get a good guitar exercise book, and use your first few minutes of practice each day concentrating on finger exercises. This will help you to build up callouses on your fingers, and strength in your finger muscles to keep them from cramping.

 

Build up your finger strength. New guitarists may experience finger cramping when they start learning. This is because your fingers aren't accustomed to the constant movement. Try doing simple guitar exercises before you play to build up their strength. A couple minutes doing an activity like the caterpillar exercise can help build up your finger muscles.

 

Find a good balance between learning music theory and physically playing the guitar. Music theory is important to learn. If you're serious about playing the guitar, it's crucial to study the technical side of it. Just don't forget to apply all you've learned. Try to strike a nice balance between the two.

 

Watching yourself succeed and begin to play music on the guitar as you progress is a great thing. It might take hard work, but now that you've read over this information, you should have a much easier time getting going. If you're ready to learn, then the guitar is ready for you!
