    To learn reading the chords of a guitar, one must have the basic knowledge on what a chord is and how is it produced.

    Introduction

    A chord is a set of tones producing a melody and is played on a guitar. The chords of a guitar can be made up of different notes that are played one string at a time whether doing it on a plucking or strumming method. Chords are played with two or three notes, can be more than. Some are played with only one note.

    Categorically, there two kinds of chords minor and major. And the basic primary chords herewith are the C,A,G,E,D or CAGED. If you are new on playing the guitar, mastering the CAGED pattern must be the first and foremost thing you should do. A lot of artists who mastered these basic chords confessed that it paved the way for easy manipulation of the other difficult chords.

    Reading a Diagram

    The very basic thing that you should know when learning the chords have to be learning on how to read the chord chart or chord diagram. Without these, youll be left in a dilemma.

    A chord diagram is an illustration with instructions on how to play a particular chord. To be able to achieve a successful guitar manipulation, there should be a good interpretation of each chord stated in the diagram and the musician must read it in the most accurate way.

    Following the CAGED pattern

    Imagine yourself looking at a guitar. Now put your attention at the fret board. Youll notice that a whole fret board is composed of 6 strings attached to it. Well, not basically attached but on top of it. These strings are the ones making it possible to produce the chords and melody. If youre going to focus on fingering first, might as well memorize the different chords produced in every fret. There are five basic and easy chords that will enhance you to learn other harder chords.

    Troubleshooting

    Oftentimes a lot of beginners complain how sore their fingers are after finishing one session with their guitar, its a normal reaction. You should be surprised if youre not hurting even a bit, this means that youre not playing it right. The proper way to carry out fingering is pressing your fingertips hard enough on the strings. When you notice that there is a buzzing sound or the echo is not going the way it should sound, try to press harder on the strings.

    Tips

    1) Cut those long fingernails. They will make it difficult for you to press the strings correctly.

    2) Dont let your fingers lie down while playing for they tend to mute some strings. This is the most common mistake done by newbies.

    3)Be sure that your fingertips are the ones that are in contact with the strings and not the place where fingerprints are taken. Maintain the straight arch. Aside from the fact that this is exhausting, this is also painful and difficult but will pay off as soon as calluses are produced.

    4) Remember that you should press the notes altogether. Make sure that no strings must be left out.

    5) Practice. Memorize each chord pattern.

    6) Dont rush yourself. If you do, itll just frustrate you if you dont get it. Choose songs that are easier to play.

    How To Practice The Guitar

    If desire is the most important part of learning guitar(without it you wouldn’t have even started), then concentration is the most important part of practicing guitar.

     

    I often say to people that 20 minutes of focused practice can beat, hands down, 2 hours of ‘normal’ practice, or just goofing about.

     

    Many people are discouraged when they are told how much time they must put into practice. The truth is, you don’t have to practice all the time to be a good guitarist.

     

    (I’m not saying you shouldn’t have time to goof off and play around. But if you want to improve quickly, you must keep playing guitar and practicing guitar separate.)

    How To Change Guitar Strings

    At some point, all guitarists need to learn how to change the strings on their guitar. Sometimes you’ll be forced to change one when a string snaps. But usually, you’ll simply want to change them, as strings lose their brightness and wear out.

     

    The amount of time you leave between change strings varies depending on several factors. If you play your guitar regularly, then you might like to change your strings once a week or once a month.

     

    Most Professional guitarists tend to change their strings before each gig. But in the end, it all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Something to bear in mind if you’re using your guitar for a gig, is that your strings need a few hours of play to break in properly. During this time, your strings will go out of tune as they stretch so you’ll have to re tune.
