10) What are the common beginners mistake should I avoid?

There are few mistakes by the beginners that you should avoid. These are:- 

I) Giving up early - A lots of people start giving up guitar at a very early stage because they feel it tough. But trust me buddy, you will feel tough only at the beginning, after crossing this stage you will get to know how interesting it feels playing guitar.

2)Not training the ear  - I highly recommend you train your ear while learning guitar, it will help you to

understand the song notes and can easily find the chords and tabs of any songs

 

3)Not listening to yourself, or recording yourself - Try to explore yourself, try to sing along playing guitar.

Many people just avoid matching their voice with guitar. This lack of coordination between you and playing guitar can cost you later, or even it takes a longer period of time for you to learn guitar. It's better to learn this at beginning because later it will be bit frustrating.

4)Untuning the guitar - This is an important point because at a beginning stage you don't really know about guitar much. If you keep your guitar tuned all the time it might cost you because keeping it in tuned can bend the neck of guitar or may also cost the getting out the bridge of guitar. So, to avoid this keep your guitar untune at night after practicing or if you taking any type of short break for it.
