Melbourne, Australia, January 05, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- After seeing their favourite band or guitar hero live many people are inspired to play the guitar. However often that guitar is now lying untouched and gathering dust in the corner of a room. A new years resolution for aspiring guitarists in 2015 should be to dust off that guitar and get playing again.
"The key to successfully learning the guitar is structured lessons and regular daily practice," according to Anthony Pell the author of "“Learning To Play The Guitar – An Absolute Beginner’s Guide." "For beginners the first few weeks are critical to develop fingertip calluses and coordination to play the main guitar chords," continues Anthony. Once these goals have been reached people can begin playing songs and actually have fun playing the guitar.
Structured lessons ensure that the student gets over these initial playing hurdles by providing specific tasks and goals to achieve. Otherwise beginners can be overwhelmed with the vast amount of guitar lesson information available online and lose focus or worse have no idea on how to start playing and give up.
Structured guitar lessons with a private teacher or by attending group guitar classes are a great way to learn. However these can be expensive and many try to save money by learning from guitar lesson videos on YouTube and other sites. However, these online video lessons tend to lack structure. They can also miss vital topics and techniques that beginners need to learn to prevent bad habits forming which can limit their future guitar playing abilities.
Another solution that provides structured lessons are good quality beginner guitar books either in print or eBook format. With any guitar book ensure that it uses a structured lesson plan designed to help beginners progress. Also before making a choice check for positive reviews, topics appropriate for beginners and that it is easy to understand. Choosing the right beginner guitar book can be the difference between success or failure and ensuring that the guitar remains dust free in 2015.
Professional Australian guitar teacher, Anthony Pell is the author of the 5 Star Amazon rated book “Learning To Play The Guitar – An Absolute Beginner’s Guide” a comprehensive eBook with 21 structured step-by-step lessons covering the essential topics to get people playing the guitar. The content of the book includes 74 audio samples, 30 videos and 13 songs which are complimented with numerous music examples, diagrams and photos.
