How Can I Keep from Singing Guitar Chords

Guitar and Its Magic

Do you ever listen to a song and fall in love with everything about it? You hymn it subconsciously. You hymn it consciously. Well, it happens to all of us. What brings a song close to our hearts are the lyrics and the tune of the song. In terms of the tune, the guitar has the most magical tune ever. 

If you are currently in love with a song, how about playing it on a guitar? All you want to play a song on your guitar then first, you need to learn the chords of the song. We are hoping you are familiar with the chords of the guitar. 

Can Anyone Play the Guitar?

Yes and no. It is a critical question to answer. Are you a beginner? If yes then you may not be able to play Highway To Hell right away. For that, you will need to learn guitar properly and practice regularly. On the other hand, there are some songs that you can play soon after learning all the chords. So, playing the guitar depends on which song are you planning on playing.

One piece of advice, before jumping into playing songs, learn about all the strings, chords. Practice every day and then start playing the songs. We completely understand your temptation to play songs but the more you practice playing different chords, the better and swifter you will get while playing songs in the future. 

Guitar Chords for Beginners

Do you remember that episode from Friends where Phoebe relentlessly tries to teach Joey how to play guitar? You need to learn to play guitar just like that. Getting an adrenaline rush to play your favorite song is pretty natural but you are supposed to prepare for something bigger. For that, you need patience and perseverance. 

Step 1. Tune your guitar. You can download a free app on your phone that will help you set the tune.

Step 2. Learn to the position. Start with the first position. This is one of the most efficient ways to learn to make movements with your fingers while playing.

Step 3. Try some easy chords. Here are some preferable chords we always recommend beginners to play during the initial practice sessions to utilize multiple open strings. These chords are C, D Em, and, G. 

Step 4. Pick the easiest one. Among these chords, playing Em would be the easiest during the initial stage so we would recommend you do the same as well.  

Step 5. Play the notes individually. When you will start playing these chords freely, make sure you are playing all the notes individually. 

Step 6. Don’t play quietly. Play your guitar loudly and with a clear nite no matter what otherwise you will break the rhythm. 

Step 7. Don’t stop. When you will start practicing all the chords, make sure you do not take intervals in between switching from one chord to another. Carefully keep switching from one chord to another without stopping or pausing for a split second and observe the changes. This will make you more swift and switch chords faster. 

Step 8. Never stop practicing. Even when you will think you play. Especially then. With more practice music gets better and grows richer.

  1. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons.
