To be honest learning guitar can be a love/hate relationship … you love the feeling you get when you can hold a few chords and begin playing your favorite song.
But … you hate the endless practice sessions that leave you feeling frustrated, confused and even bored.
The whole idea behind you learning guitar in the first place was to have fun, learn something new but after complex lessons that just seem pointless I bet you have had enough.
I will let you in on a little secret…
The key factor that determines your success at learning guitar is structure. I can’t stress enough how important structure is.
I truly believe that the fact that some people struggle to learn guitar or put it in the too hard basket is their choice of lessons without structure.
To get you off on the right track to begin with is by learning the very basics first without complex and long winded lessons.
This will guarantee you will no longer feel frustrated and confused.
It is easy to get swept up in awesome advanced techniques and playing guitar solos like you see you favourite guitarist doing.
All this will come in time but for now you just need to focus on getting a solid foundation to build on.
You won’t be able to do anything with your guitar if you don’t learn the basics first.
My advice to people who are interested in learning to play guitar has always been the same over the years…
To give yourself the greatest chance of learning guitar you need to understand the basic fundamentals and this will be critical to your long term guitar success.
