Saad Studio happily offers music courses for beginners and anyone who wants to improve their musical talents. We have lessons ranging from piano to drums, but one of the most famous and in-demand courses in our studio is our guitar curriculum.
Probably because the guitar is one of the easiest and simplest instruments to pick up and play. It’s also a famous instrument because of how prominent it is in the music industry; it can be used in a variety of ways across different genres.
Before you enrol in the guitar course offered here at Saad Studio, check out these beginner tips to help you get started:
Choose the right guitar
Your journey towards being the next best guitarist starts with choosing the right guitar. If you have the means and ability to choose your first guitar, make sure that what you buy feels good on your hand.
A good beginner’s guitar is one equipped with nylon strings rather than steel ones. These strings are much softer than regular ones but they will still sound good and help in forming the blisters in your fingers.
Sometimes it purely depends on you. That’s why it’s important to feel the guitar before buying it. Some people are shy to try a guitar that they see hanging in a store because they think they might break it. Just make sure to be cautious and gentle, there’s no harm in trying it.
As with any other activities that you’re trying to practice, being patient plays a huge role in learning a new thing. You can’t expect to shred the guitar in a span of a week or even a month. Don’t try to skip some steps and go straight to the advanced lessons, take time and effort to learn the basics because this will be the foundation of your guitar playing.
Instead of rushing the lessons, consistently run through the lessons until you can play them effortlessly. It may take some time but the knowledge that you will gain here will last you a lifetime.
Learn to tune your guitar
No matter how good you become at playing the guitar, you will sound bad if you don’t know how to tune it properly. You can either buy a tuner to get the most specific readings but you can always learn by ear. Just remember that it always pays to tune your guitar because it will sound a hundred times better.
Focus on your own progress
From the get-go, accept to yourself that there is always someone out there better than you. This is not a bad thing, that’s just the reality and they are better than you because of two factors. Either they have been playing longer than you or they practise more than you. So instead of comparing yourself to others, focus on yourself and how you will improve in your guitar playing.
