Best way to learn guitar Best way to learn guitar Document Transcript

  • The importance of proper guitar technique I always say that the emotional aspect of playing any instrument outweighs the technical aspects, because music is about communicating and touching people. We want to be able to express ourselves on the guitar. But, with that said, it is really the technique that we learn that allows us to do so. Some players give a lot of thought to developing good and proper technique. Others do not bother thinking too much about it and just let things happen. Some players are absolutely obsessed with it. I have had many excellent guitar teachers in my life. The really cool thing is that they have all been different and taught me to view guitar playing in various different ways. The ones that benefited me the most however where the ones that incorporated a lot of technical aspects into our lessons. But just what is what is good/proper technique? Is it finger placement, hand positioning, picking style, posture??? Well, it is all of the above.
  • The big challenge however is implementing that good technique into ones own personal playing. Everyone hand is different, and the way one person uses proper technique may actually differ from another persons although they share a common goal. This is something that I work a lot on with my own students. Sometimes we spend a lot of time developing or even correcting the technical aspects whether it is posture or finger placement or another element. I believe that with good technical skills you will be able to play anything you want physically and emotionally. When you think about it, it's the technique that makes it possible for you to convey your emotions on the guitar. Things like slides, bends, vibrato, hammer-ons, pulls-off are can all be used as tools to express yourself. If all of these elements where omitted Things like slides, bends, vibrato, hammer-ons, pulls-off are can all be used as tools to express yourself., your guitar playing would probably seem quite lifeless. So it is really important that you continue to practice using proper technique and clean it up if necessary. With good technical abilities your playing will seem effortless, and it will be a lot easier to play physically demanding parts, riffs and solos. It takes time and patience to build up good technique, but it is well worth it in the end. Visit this site to get more information about Best Way To Learn Guitar
