Things for new guitar players to avoid – Unrealistic Goals


Don’t bite off more than you can chew.

Yes, every new guitar player wants to get right into Stairway to Heaven or Hotel California. But once you realize that it actually takes skill to play these songs, you should lower your expectations.

Trying hard to learn difficult techniques can lead to significant improvement. But it can also be less productive than working on things you have a realistic chance of executing.

Work on chording with practice tracks of familiar tunes. And learn simple melodies like Ode to Joy, Hallelujah, Imagine, Budapest, Havana, or Amazing Grace.

These easier songs are actually doable within a reasonable amount of time, and with a bit of regular practice. Check out these songs and exercises for new guitar players.
