Learning how to play guitar is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself, in the long run. However, too many people try learn the guitar from a short term perspective. What do I mean by that? Well, just after getting their first guitar, many hopeful players will try to jump right into playing a song. In some cases, they're able to manage it, and they gradually add more songs to their repertoire. In time, they're able to play quite a few guitar songs, but there's just one problem:
Along the way, bouncing from song to song, a lot of the foundational knowledge was skipped, and as a result they now find themselves with some ability to play, but little understanding as to how it all works. And at a certain point, that becomes the biggest limitation in moving forward.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be a downer here! I'm only describing what happens if you try to learn how to play guitar via the instant gratification method.
The good news of this whole story is that there is a better way!
By learning in a step-by-step manner, making sure you cover the foundational basics, you'll not only learn how to play guitar faster, but you'll also find it far more rewarding! When you really understand the fretboard, and you understand how chords, keys, scales, and rhythms work, you'll be amazed at how all that music theory makes such a difference to your actual playing of the guitar.
