HOW TO LEARN GUITAR
Before start playing, you need to adjust guitar's tune. So, for that download a mobile app called Guitartuna. This app will help you to tune you guitar perfectly. If you face any type of difficulty while using the app, then you can watch any guitartuna tutorial in youTube, So that you can understand how to use the app.
AFTER TUNING THE GUITAR
Now, you need to know some basic stuffs about guitar. In standard classic guitar there are 19 frets present in fretboard and each fret has a different tone along with strings.
The dots in a guitar indicates the fret numbers. Sometimes it differs from guitar to guitar but 12th fret always remains the same in every guitar with 2 dots.
Now after knowing the frets of guitar, you need to know about the major and minor scale of guitar. And for that, I highly recommend to watch some video lesson about the major and minor scale lessons in youtube. There are tons of videos available in youtube that can help you to know exactly what these scale means. Learning the scale lessons also help you to free your finger so that you can move those finger easily along the fret. Learning the scale lesson will help you to find the chords and tabs of any song by your own. After learning the whole major and minor scale lesson you don't need to check the chords of any song in internet, you can do this by your own only after listening the music.
HOW CAN I PLAY MY FAVOURITE SONG?
To play your fav song you need to know the chords of guitar. As a beginners you need to know some basic chords like G,EM,C,D. These are the four basic chords for every beginners.
HOW TO PLAY THEM :-
This diagram shows how to hold G chord. And then after holding this chord you also have to strum, and the most common and basic strumming pattern is DD UU DD DU (D- down U- up)
This is a basic strumming pattern that you should follow, I know it's not easy and it's requires a lots of practice. But be patient and consistence the day will come when you able to play these chord perfectly.
After completing your strumming at G sift you hand to EM chord. And again strum to DD UU DD DU. Then move to C
After coming to C continue you strumming. At a beginner level you can stop strumming while changing the chords but once your finger got fit into those chords, try to change the chords without breaking the strumming, now sift to D.
This diagram shows D chord. Continue your strumming up to here and keep repeating this cycle of chords and strumming pattern until you get perfect in it.
Most of the songs can be played in these chords, that's why these are really important and basic chords as well.
NOTE - Up stroke is more difficult then down stroke at a beginning level and that is pretty common to everyone so don't panic.
