Joshua Olivieri here, fellow guitarists, bringing you the latest tips for learning the guitar online. Learning guitar has become a much simpler task in our time thanks to the wealth of knowledge and cat videos known as the internet. More guitarists nowadays choose not to hire a teacher and instead teach themselves with the many videos and diagrams one can find while surfing the web.
While some would discourage you from learning online, it is in reality a fantastic course to take. It gives you flexibility, and you can learn at your own pace. The only problem with the versatility of learning online is that there are so many different ways to do it, you can be overwhelmed on narrowing it down to just one, or worse: you could pick a bad one. Let me tell you what, readers, the only thing worse than not practicing at all is practicing wrongly.
To help you avoid these struggles of online guitar learning, we at GuitarControl.com have a compilation of various resources, articles, and videos to help you pluck, strum, and master your guitar. We even have a Youtube channel showcasing our best players who will help walk you through your first note to entire scales.
Our very own founder, Claude Johnson, has a great video for beginners, demonstrating easy chords for you to pick up and play.
And to give you an idea of what you’re in for, here are some of the most common chords.
And here is an article on our site detailing some of the easiest ways to learn how to play the guitar.
The best thing about learning to play the guitar online is that you can find any teacher you’re looking for, you can learn how to play any style you want to, and you do it at your own convenience. Don’t think for a second that learning online makes you less of a guitar player, because it doesn’t. Some people can’t afford to have a teacher. Some people don’t learn that way. As long as you are willing to play the guitar, and take the initiative to learn it, then you can strum your way through the ranks and hold your own against the best players out there.
