acoustic guitarWhy do some people prefer acoustic guitars to other instruments like the piano, for instance? One reason is the versatility and portability of an acoustic guitar.

Just the fact an acoustic guitar is portable means you can play it whenever you like and wherever you are, without the need for amps or trucks.

Some people learn how to play through books while others scour the Internet for online lessons at places like Jamorama.com, JamPlay.com and I wouldn’t want to leave out my favourite place which is Youtube.com.

An Acoustic Guitar And A Place To Learn

Using the three sites I mentioned above you can go from knowing nothing to learning how to play acoustic guitar like a pro. I started with pop and rock but now my interests have moved into blues and bluegrass as well. All on my trusty .

If you really want to learn how to play the acoustic guitar, you need to have self-discipline. This involves setting up a system for learning that you will dedicate yourself to following. Just as it is with everything, you need to have focus, discipline, and the determination when learning how to play the acoustic guitar.

I set aside time every day it’s possible, for practicing what I’m learning. If you’re practicing in the house, choose a favourite spot where you can lay all your guitar books and chords open as you play.

I am one of those people would tries to practice at least an hour or more every day, again when possible. I will allow myself to miss a practice if I just have to go fishing. By the time I get back home I usually don’t have the energy to pick up the guitar.

If you don’t practice you’re likely NOT to go far so give yourself at least a half hour of dedicated practice, while you’re learning how to play your acoustic guitar. This way you will be less likely to give up like so many of my friends have done.

acoustic-guitar (2)I would have to say there are two things I had a real problem with when I started learning to play guitar, other than not being able to sing. One was not using a pick right from the start and second I continually watched my chording hand.

Watching your chording hand is okay when you are learning to form chords but once you can form the chords and switch between chords you need to take your eyes off the chording hand and get used to finding the right chord and fret without looking.

Practice 15 minutes here or 20 minutes there. Whatever you can do to split up the time so you aren’t getting burnt out by practicing is a positive. Nonetheless if you do only have one or two hours on one day a week to give to practice, by all possible means practice!
