3.) Have a nice environment to practice in
Learning to play the guitar is great. But I see so many people who try and learn but they don’t have the environment for them to learn. One examples is a parent who is trying to learn when they’ve got kids running around them. Or maybe you live in a house of housemates and you feel that you have to play quietly as not to stop them. This can actually hinder your progress a lot.
A lot of people don’t realise this and think that they’ll be able to get round it but having the right environment is so vital to your learning. I recommend setting up a space where you can go to it daily and fill a piece where you’re not distracted by the washing up or Other chores that you have to do around the house. Have a music stand ready have your music ready have your materials. Have you got Hall out on a stand so you don’t even have to get out of the case and it’s all ready for you.
4.) Have supportive friends & family
So many people give up playing the guitar because their friends and family put doubt in their heads.
They say “why aren’t you getting better already “”I know my friend learn to play guitar in six months only””Why can’t you play my favourite song already?”
The truth is learning the guitar takes different amount of time for different people there are lots of reasons for this. It could be that your brain is just why differently. Or that your dexterity needs working on.
For some people, it might be that you don’t have the musical ear like some other people do. It might mean that you haven’t been humming or singing for the best part of 30 years of your life where as other people have.
There are so many reasons that learning the guitar takes different amount of time and a lot of people put I’m realistic pressures on them self. Now on top of that you don’t really need your family or friends to be putting additional pressure and asking you questions that they don’t really know anything about. This happens all the time and it gives you a lot of worry when really you should just be enjoying the experience and a journey of learning rather than trying to get to goal
I hope these few tips and tricks were Hope you and learning the guitar is a adult beginner guitarist and I have full faith that you’ll be able to learn guitar.
