Does it really make sense to buy a children’s acoustic guitar or is this just another way advertisers use to get your money? Well, it depends. It could be one or the other. Therefore, in the following article I thought it would make sense if I just share my experience as guitar player and guitar teacher with you. I had the pleasure to work with quite a few children and teaching them how to play the guitar. So, I want to make sure that I equip you with all the knowledge you need in order to figure out what’s best for you – or actually, best for the youngster you want to buy a guitar for.
Today I want to talk a little bit more about resources to learn guitar chords online. It’s certainly not for a lack of websites and tools that can make this unnecessarily difficult. I know, I must sound like a broken record to those of you who are regular guest of my blog and YouTube Channel – but it’s just a matter of fact: there’s too much nonsense out there. Some sites make promises that are simply unrealistic and turn out to be ultimately just another means to get you to buy something that you don’t need, or in best case, offers very little value only.
Here is what I want to do today together with you. Let’s do an interactive guitar lesson where we will focus on 7 guitar songs for beginners that I hand-picked for you. All of those songs are obviously on a guitar beginner level, however, some of them are a little bit more challenging than others. Anyway, no worries, I will walk you through the whole process and I’m sure you’ll have fun and you might learn something new….;-)
Learning to play guitar means for most of us to learn a few basic guitar chords to get started. But what does “basic” actually mean in this context? Well, I think there are about a dozen to 20 chords that would fall into that category. It all depends who you ask, but I guess we can agree that it’s a fairly oversee-able number.
Today, I want to share 4 basic guitar chords with you that you can learn in no time. As a matter of fact, we will be learning them together, right here, right now. No worries, I will show you exactly what you need to do and we take everything one step at a time.
A lot of classic and modern Rock guitar riffs have their foundation in power chords. But what are guitar power chords and how do you play them? Well, in the following article we will discuss everything you need to know about these easy to learn and fun chords.
I’d like to start off with giving you a little bit of background on this rather unique kind of guitar chord. We will then discuss in more detail how to learn them and look at a few popular songs with power chords. Last but not least, I have a chart with power chords available for free which you can download right from here. Oh, and I want to share a couple of additional good resources for you to learn more about power chords.
I guess it’s fair to say that the vast majority of guitar players start out with learning a few beginner guitar chords. Of course, I’m sure there are exceptions, but most teachers, courses and books will show you how to play guitar chords before moving to more advanced things on the instrument. And that makes perfect sense from my perspective as a player and teacher.
I know. I am surprised, too, finding myself writing a post about pink guitar models and accessories. Because I can’t say that it’s my favorite. Nonetheless, I realize it’s a super popular color and people have asked whether it’s okay to buy a pink electric or acoustic guitar. Well, that all depends – just as with any other guitar of any other color. We will talk about all that in a little bit and my goal will be to make sure you know exactly what you need to be mindful of before you make a purchase. Not all pink guitars are the same and some of them I would not necessarily recommend if your actual intention is to learn the instrument. Others are perfectly okay for that purpose, so I will definitely make a point in explaining what you need to know in order to make an educated decision. Speaking of decision making, we will also discuss 10 specific pink models – and separately, 10 pink accessories – that have been bestsellers and received high customer ratings…
