Welcome back! Learning guitar tips right? We are all looking for them at some point.
When I was starting out, I had now idea how to play a chord. Most of the time I would just play
random chords that made no sense at all haha; but boy, I was having fun.
Today I wanna share with you some of the best tips that I wish I had back then when I was a beginner; this is coming from a guy who has been playing guitar for 15 years. I think every guitar player should start out by learning some chords. You probably know a few chords I mean, they are all over the internet; that’s no secret. But it’s like if they give you a car and you don’t know how to drive, you could potentially learn on your own but if someone helps you out it’s way better, faster, and easier. I think some of the stuff that you have to keep in mind whenever you practice any song with any chord are the following:
The key to playing different chords within one song is to know where your finger is going
to land before you even move them. You have to like see the frets with your mind. You
have to imagine where the fingers will go. Seriously, it works. When you are changing chords, don’t change one finger at a time, it’s not good.
Actually move all the fingers at once, like if they are jumping. It might be very hard at the
beginning but eventually, it will make your playing better and smoother. Watch out for the lower part of your fingers as sometimes it might me muting other strings and you don’t want that; you want the full sound of a chord. When playing rhythms, move your wrist not your arm! Some people tend to move their entire arm but trust me, if you train your wrist, it will be much better for you in the future. You will be able to achieve more complicated rhythms.
This is all for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed this article and please remember to check out our
