In this video you will learn the basic fretting technique that will be the cornerstone for all fretting.
1. Play directly on your fingertips (make sure nails on “fret” hand are always
2. Play right behind the fret (this is for leverage). Remember the see-saw example.
3. Play with ALL your fingers (each finger plays a specific fret)
4. It is best to leave some space between the palm of you hand and the guitar neck,
This will give you much needed leverage to play on your fingertips. Sometimes
dropping the shoulder can be helpful as well.
In this video you will quickly master the art of reading tablature, also known as "tab". this type of musical notation is a quick way to learn the exact place on the neck of the guitar, where a guitarist plays a particular riff.
There is blank tablature paper attached to this post, so that you can start doing your own tablature.
In this video you will learn the nine essential guitar chords that you cannot live without. Learning these guitar chords will allow you to play in millions of songs!
How to play guitar chords and the nine chords you CAN’T live without
Playing guitar chords can seem like a daunting task for new players, but remember EVERY player goes through this…SO HANG IN THERE! First of all, remember the importance of playing on your fingertips. If you play on the pads of your fingers, you will NOT be able to play chords well! Observe your hand when you are playing. If something does not sound right, it’s PROBABLY NOT! Play with the specified fingers to start off. If you want to change fingerings after you have mastered these chords, then great! But for now, stick to the specified fingering and you will quickly see your discipline pay off. Arpeggiate (pick slowly) through the chord so that you can hear each note as it is being played. You will only cheat yourself by being sloppy, so pay close attention to your fingerings and technique. When transitioning from one chord to the next, be aware of your fingers; which ones need to move where and what fingers stay in place, (i.e. The 3rd finger never moves when going from a D to a G chord, or from a G to a D. For E to A-, all the fingers move together.)
Here are some key things to remember when playing chords on the guitar:
1. Play directly on your fingertips - make sure nails on “fret” hand are always trimmed.
2. Play right behind the fret (this is for leverage).
3. It is best to leave some space between the palm of your hand and the guitar neck. This will give you much needed leverage to play on your fingertips. Curling the last knuckle on your fingers is also helpful.
Once you have your basic guitar chord technique mastered, you will soon want to start integrating the thumb for muting notes and/or playing notes.
This is a ninja strum technique that I developed for my students that were having an issue with strumming.
