The one and alone truth is that when a kid grabs a guitar, he or she pictures himself (or herself) rocking like the great legends of rock on a big scenario with fireworks and special effects, and perhaps it´s just a kid with a guitar (or sometimes a broom or something like it) in front of a mirror.
If this sounds familiar to you and you began your journey just like the kid with a broom, you´ll more than likely go back in time to that period when you had a lot of fun starting to picture yourself with a guitar and all the things were about having fun.
You could be one of two types of guitarists, the professional ones and the ones that play it just for fun, and both type of musicians do it for the fun of it that’s for sure, but my point is that the ones that play for hobby start playing guitar and since it is not their main priority, they leave the guitar alone, or sometimes they even stop playing for long periods of time, so of course they do not get better with time, sometimes they actually get worse.
Well, if you picked the guitar a couple of months ago but never actually got serious at it, now is the time, it is not too late to start improving your skills, all you have to do is set a plan to do it, a plan to improve your guitar skills. The right way to go is to begin doing things step by step, I mean that you have to forget about a couple of things. For example, what happened to me when I started is that since I only got interested in learning chords, when I started playing songs with a higher difficulty level I never used my pinky finger on the fretboard, I was not used to it at all.
It was only when I began following a course that I discovered out the correct way of uising my pinky finger to play guitar correctly when playing solos. Ok, so let me give you important tips to improve your guitar skills.
1. Plan ahead your practice sessions: there is a saying that I like very much, it goes like this “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”, the one way to get where you want to be is by knowing where you’re going, no way around that. So, figure out what kind of guitar you want to play guitar right, and start doing things in little steps.
2. Get a new guitar: if it is within your possibilities of course, this is a great way to start getting better, its literally like a child with a new toy, you are going to start playing it and you will not want to put it down for a while.
3. Get guitar lessons online or a guitar teacher: with a teacher or a course to follow you are going to take advantage of the advice of the experts and find out what you need to dominate before taking the next step.
4. Practice, practice, practice: You can have the best teacher, the best guitar, the best guitar course, but if you do not take action you won´t be able to improve your guitar skills, so you need to have enough time to make sure that you will be able to take action and practice what you are learning.
Winners are the ones who continue fighting for their dreams, what makes the difference between those who succeed and those who have their guitar as a dusty old toy in the closet is the will to become the best and the effort they put in what they really want. I wish you the best of luck and have a great day.
