Hey, everyone! Today I'll be showing some guitar tips and tricks and how to play some chords blues proggessions!
First, get a guitar. Obviously acoustic or electric will be fine, but for blues and chords I recommend electric and for folk songs acoustic is good.
Second, get a pic. If you don't know what a pic is, it's an easier way to play and best for chords. It looks like this:
I recommend the smallest pick for double picking. (You can go up, down, up, down, not just down, down, down, down.)
Next, a good chord to learn. First is G chord. It's a good way to tune your guitar. Or buy a tuner. It looks like this:
To do a G chord, put your fingers in this position: Use your first and second and third and fingers for G:
There are 6 strings on the guitar, each with it's own sound. (You probably knew that, but I'm just reviewing for new muscians.) It's High E, B, G, D, A, and Low E. You can remeber it by using this: Elephants, Birds, Giraffes, Dine, At, Evening. Once you got that chord in your brain and your fingers are used to it you can use that for most songs.
Next, Tabs! Tabs are an easier way of reading notes. These are tabs. They tell you where to put your finger.
But we're going to teach you how to read notes. If you play any other instrument, for example piano, trumpet, ETC., that's great! Then you probably already know how to read notes just in a different key. If you don't know how, I'll tell you in the next part.
