If you are planning to learn playing the guitar but don’t know where to start, you are in the right place. Anyone can play the guitar. Besides, if you can’t play it at all, you’ve probably played an air guitar at some point. We all know how it is held and how it’s generally manipulated to produce sound. But if you want to learn and perfect the art of real guitar playing, there are things you cannot afford to ignore, whether you are self-taught or not.
Holding a Guitar
According to Global Brands Magazine, there are several ways to hold the guitar, depending on the use of a strap. For beginners, it would be better to apply the simple method which is quite convenient. The random process of controlling the guitar is that you place the guitar on the leg if you are right-handed and then pull it close to your body. The temptation for a new guitarist is usually to slide the guitar along the portion so that you can grasp what is going on. Try to avoid that! Pull the guitar in close to your body and sit up straight.
Selecting a Pick
Lot’s of beginners ask what type of pick they should use. In this regard, start with a standard shaped medium thickness pick, about .73mm. From there you can try thicker or thinner picks and decide what you like for yourself. If you don’t want to use a choice you don’t have to. You can make the strumming motions with your thumb or thumb and index finger.
