How Hard Would It Be To Learn How To Play Guitar If You Already Know How To Read Music?From Performing Arts Forum:
How hard would it be to learn how to play guitar if you already know how to read music? Okay. So, I'm taking a vocal tech class for school and they are gonna teach us how to read music and I wanna learn how to play guitar this year so....how hard would it be to learn how to play if I know how to read music?
Answer: Well knowing how to read music is one thing but learning how to read it for guitar is another. Playing guitar is not as easy as some think.... First of all you have to train your fingers and hand mussels, it takes months just to get the callouses that you need in order to play without pain. If you learn correctly from the start I'd say in two years you should be able to play things like Yesterday finger style, some chords, and maybe some theory. Being able to read music for voice is one thing, learning where the notes are on the guitar is another, your left and right hand have to know where these notes are....completly different then just looking at the notes for voice, playing guitar is just like anything else it takes time, patience, and hard work, you didn't learn to read overnight so your not going to learn how to play guitar in a few months. Just take your time and learn the correct way and if you have musical talent and put in the necessary work you should be able to play quite a few songs in two years. Most young people that I have worked with want to sit down and have few lessons and think that they should be able to play, well it doesn't work that way, It's not easy to go from chord to chord with ease.....in fact in the beginning it's very awkward. If you can't afford a teacher go on one of the guitar sites and they have lots of good ones, here are a few that you could look over and see what you think, good luck, bye. http://www.guitarchordsmagic.com/ http://www.justinguitar.com/ http://www.billbrutal.com/ http://www.jamplay.com/ http://www.learn-to-play-guitar-online.info http://www.8notes.com/ (click on the guitar) http://www.worldguitar.com/ http://www.guitarturoronline.com/ http://www.fret2fret.com/ http://www.learntoplayguitar.net/ http://www.guitarnotes.com/ http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/ Wish you luck !!!!!!!

Whats The Best Way To Learn How To Play Guitar Quickly?From Performing Arts Forum:
Whats the best way to learn how to play guitar quickly? I want to learn how to play guitar fairly good in a short amount of time maybe a few songs without lessons, any tips?
Answer: You are off to a bad start already, totally on the wrong track. If you try to teach yourself to play songs in a short amount of time, you are going to be skipping a lot of basics that you will need. You will get into bad habits that are going to be very hard to overcome later on down the road. You need to find a good instructor that knows how to teach. Remember that just because someone takes money to play guitar with you, doesn't make them a guitar instructor. I good instructor will have some kind of formal education, will make you go through a book, will expect you to learn notes on the fretboard, chords, scales, modes etc. This is very important. You will learn some easy songs as soon as you can get the chords down, but that is just the beginning. You have to learn the other stuff with it, or your not going to progress as you should. You will instead get bored with playing the same chord progressions over and over and you will start to think that all of your songs sound the same. Do not choose a teacher who lets you come in and say "I want to learn (enter song here), you will end up learning a cool RIF, but will never be able to play an entire song. Please, do it the right way, right off the bat and save yourself a heap of trouble down the road. I go through this with people all the time, I can't stress it enough. You do not have to practice two or three hours a day either. Start out with 15 minutes to a half hour a day. This will allow time for your fingers to get used to it, plus you will not get burned out as easily. If your fingers start to hurt, take a break or stop for the day. It will not take long for you to be able to play longer. Remember "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right". Also, remember that "It doesn't matter what kind of guitar you have or how much it cost you, if you don't know what your doing they all sound like crap anyhow". Good luck and don't give up. It will be worth the time and effort you put into. The sound that you get out of your guitar will be a direct result of the effort that you put into it.
Does Rock smith Actually Teach You How To Play Guitar?From Video & On line Games Forum:
Does Rock smith actually teach you how to play guitar? If you don't know anything about a guitar, not even the names of the strings. I want to learn how to play guitar and I want to learn how to actually play it, not tabs. Can it teach you the same things a guitar teacher would at a music store?
Answer: EDIT: Lord, I ended up typing far more than I intended. I'm moving my tl;dr to the top. Yes, it'll teach you guitar. I haven't played it myself so I can only go off of what I hear from other people, hence all the wordiness in here. tl;dr The game is selling itself on its ability to teach you how to play guitar, from any skill level, even those who have never touched one. It's almost certainly a yes. The Rock smith bundle comes with a real, actual, functioning Epiphany Les Paul Junior. I looked up a couple videos on the Internet and learned to read tabs to teach myself how to play guitar, and getting the basics down is easy. I personally would never pay for guitar lessons. I have a friend (who is the front man for Scattered Union) who gives guitar lessons and he assured me that there's really not much they can teach you that practice and minimal research wouldn't do for you anyway. Note that I'm not saying this is a fact and that guitar lessons are useless, just that a guy who gives them told me that they are. Back to the main point, though. The game works on real, actual, functioning guitars. It teaches you how to play the real guitar, because that's what you're using as a controller. It'll show you chords, how to hold them, etc. Rock Band pro guitar taught you the names of the strings and which fingers to use to hold down which strings for chords, so I can't imagine Rock smith would be any less helpful than that considering that you're playing an actual stringed instrument and creating the proper, actual sound out of your guitar at the same time you make the correct sound in game. There's also a mode that allows you to use all sorts of different amps and pedals and it even teaches you how to get the sounds out of those that you desire, both in game and for a real guitar. If it's detailed enough to teach you that, I can't imagine it wouldn't teach you basics. The E reveal and the trailers to date all say that it "teaches you" and the creator, when interviewed, specifically said, "Anyone can pick up this game and learn to play guitar from it." There was even a testimonial (might have been staged, because, it's an advertisement) from someone involved who said he'd never played a guitar before and he was feeling like it was something he was going to get very good at because the game had taught him. Research into it yourself a bit more before making the full purchase. If you don't already own an electric guitar, the bundle will set you back $200. I plan on picking this game up to help me advance my skills and also just to have fun with it, so I also have looked into it quite a bit and it seems legitimate. It isn't Rock Band or Guitar Hero; you are playing a genuine instrument, not a controller.

What Are The Techniques To Learn How To Play Guitar Quickly?From Hobbies & Crafts Forum:
what are the techniques to learn how to play guitar quickly? because I'm starting to learn how to play guitar.. and I want to learn it quickly.
Answer: Take private lessons and practice a lot. There really are no short cuts but any guitarist will tell you that you'll progress more quickly with private instruction. If this isn't an option then at least try some DVDs or a free on line course like Justin Guitar. This is much better than just randomly jumping around to different you tube lessons. You need to learn the basics before trying to learn a song.
What'S The Best Way To Teach Myself How To Play Guitar?From Performing Arts Forum:
What's the best way to teach myself how to play guitar? I want to learn how to play guitar but I don't have the time or money for lessons. I took 10 years of piano lessons, so I know how to read music and that sort of thing. So where do I start?
Answer: I'm teaching myself guitar too. You should first learn simple open chords such as C major, D major, G major, E minor, A minor, etc. start off slow and since you said you took piano you should have a good sense of rhythm, just practice strumming the chords as whole notes, then half notes, then quarter notes. Take it slowly, it'll be a while before your body memorizes the chord fingerings. When you first start playing guitar, your fingers will hurt, but once your fingers develop calluses it will stop hurting. I'm gonna list some bad habits that you should look up and try not to do; 1.Anchoring 2.Only downpicking 3. bad strumming technique (its important to do what feels natural but what feels natural could lead to wrist pain later.) 4. bad fretting hand technique (this basically means how your thumb rests on the fretboard, etc.) some beneficial stuff to look up are; 1. alternative picking 2. economy picking 3. pentatonic scale and blues scale 4. guitar technique lessons (bending, vibrato, slides) 5. guitar tablature ultimate-guitar.com and you tube have been great resources for my guitar learning. Well that should keep you busy for a while. good luck and don't give up, sink or swim you can only get better with time.
What Are Some Good Websites That Teach You How To Play Guitar?From Other - Music Forum:
What are some good websites that teach you how to play guitar? I want to learn how to play guitar. I'm 20 by the way. Is it too late for me?
Answer: No its never too late to learn guitar. If your looking for tabs for songs then you should try ultimate guitar.com or tabs.com. Also there are videos of people giving lessons on how to play songs on you tube. Another good website would be Justinian.com where the guy there has years of playing guitar professionally and explains everything slowly and clearly. Some people improve more by learning from a teacher, DVD or a book but personally I improved a lot when I started learning tabs of songs that I liked off the sites that I just mentioned.
I Am Learning How To Play Guitar?From Performing Arts Forum:
I am learning how to play guitar? I was wondering if anyone knows of any programs on the Internet that would teach me how to play guitar. No full of himself famous guitarist just showing off how good he is and disco raging others. I mean like a program I can download and use for free that would teach me how to play and test my skills.O yeah I only have an acoustic so lessons for acoustic guitar playing would be good. I have no idea how to teach myself guitar because I hardly know anything about it or what to play. The only thing I can play really is the main riff where its all open string for "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallic. So please help me. I really want to learn this instrument. I have tried beginners books but none work for me. I need someone else to help me out. All my friends know how but they choose to be ass holes and not help a friend out. I cant afford a teacher in person because I am not a rich stuck up guitar player. I will state again. I can not afford a teacher. They dint come around and teach for free.
Answer: Look up Guitar Player Magazine on line. Threes videos an transcriptions. Usually the forums are people just trying to show off knowledge, so you might pick up something from there. There really is not a difference between acoustic and electric, though a few techniques such as bending strings an pitch harmonics will be a little harder.
Do I Absolutely Need To Take Lessons To Really Learn How To Play Guitar?From Performing Arts Forum:
Do I absolutely need to take lessons to really learn how to play guitar? I'm 16 and I would REALLY like to learn how to play guitar, and I have my own acoustic guitar. I know taking lessons from a expert would really be the best way to learn, but I am really busy these days and I don't know if I have the time to do that. If I want to become good at guitar, do I really need to take lessons? Should I just keep learning from on line tabs? Or is there a website that helps? Thanks.
Answer: As you now know, you have split answers to this question. personally ,I've been playing twenty years, and I have a blast with my guitar. As a matter of fact , I started playing at your age. I noticed some one mentioned god given talent! If you have that you still could use guidance. The one thing I wished I would have done is put more time into my passion. You should keep going to the Internet for your info on songs you want to play but it's very easy just to waste a lot of time in limbo too! Don't get lost just envying people who can! You should turn to the Internet for lessons once you've turned playing the guitar to a passion. The Internet is still at your leisure and once you dig in and enjoy yourself, you will find the time to do what you love. here's a link to where I study. and yes I will get credit if you buy, but at the very least soak up the free material they give! http://mrsupermom.jamorama.hop.clickbank.net?page=4
