Welcome to this Beginner Guitar Course. Through this six video course, you will learn the skills necessary to start playing the guitar. If you have never played the guitar or any other musical instrument before that is ok if you slowly work your way through the videos. Making sure to practice what you have learned before moving on, I know that you can master the guitar in no time.

This course is six main videos long and begins with the common terminology used when talking about the guitar…what is the neck?… What are frets?

Then we will show you how to tune the guitar to play the notes that it should. From there we get into actually playing the guitar. First, we take a look at playing first position notes. This is just a fancy term for playing single notes with all of your fingers. The guitar is similar to typing at a computer, you might find that it is fine to get by with only using 2 fingers and pecking around, but you will find that you can type faster and more smoothly if you learn how to use all of your fingers together.

After learning how to play single notes, we look into playing more than one note at a time, which is called a chord. We will teach you to play open chords, which are the basic chords that comprise a large majority of acoustic guitar music. There are many different types of chords but will learn how to play what is called major and minor chords.

These two types of chords are very common in music and are huge bases for many songs. Along with learning the notes to play a chord, we also look at the groove, or rhythm that accompanies chords. This rhythm is called strumming, and it is helpful to learn as you learn to play your first chords.

Then we move into a little bit harder but still manageable area of moveable scale patterns. We will take a look at the major scale as well as the blues scale. These are simple shapes on the guitar that you can memorize, and can then be moved all up and down the neck to give you the major and blues scales starting on any note. We will talk about what keys are and how you can use your moveable scale patterns to play the scales in any key.

Lastly, we will take a look at Bar Chords. Bar chords are a little bit trickier than open chords but they have the same advantage as the moveable scale patterns, as one chord shape with your hand can be moved all over the guitar to allow you to play any number of different chords.

Armed with this knowledge, I know that you can work on these guitar principles and be playing the guitar in no time. It may seem daunting at first, but broken up into manageable pieces you can learn to play the guitar. I hope that the things that this course covers are interesting to you so that together we can help you start playing the guitar today.
