Posted by Downtown Music Guitars Pty Ltd on September 02, 2010
Playing an instrument is one of the most rewarding experiences especially for those who are looking for a past time which is both challenging and enjoyable. Guitar in particular is a wonderful instrument to pick up for someone who has never played an instrument before. Often people will become frustrated however, when trying to learn the guitar because of the inherently difficult nature of learning an instrument. However, here are some steps you can take to make your guitar learning experience faster and more effective:
1. Make sure to practice, as with out regular practice muscle memory is easily lost. Regular practice will ensure that you do not have to relearn much of what you had already been proficient in two weeks earlier. Having good muscle memory for the instrument will allow you to develop better skill with the instrument.
2. Learn to play guitar from a method book, or teacher. In order to improve both skill and to more easily learn the guitar, it is best to learn the necessary skills from a someone who has experience with good guitar playing habits and understands what is necessary for improving guitar playing skill.
3. Have patience and enjoy the process. An instrument takes a long time to master but only a few lessons to enjoy and pick up a few tunes if you have the right attitude towards. Learning an instrument is a journey rather than a final destination you want to rush to. You could be playing the guitar for 10 years and you will still be learning new things.
