Five most common mistakes made by beginner guitarists
1. No goals set
When many people decide to practice seriously, they don't know what to practice, or there is no obvious improvement in practice. This may be because they didn’t set any goal. Each practice should have a clear goal for us to achieve. And how to set goals is also very important, such as:
"I want to be a great guitarist." This goal is too big and too abstract.
The best practice goal does not need to be too big, but to be specific and clear, like "I want to learn to play this song." It can even be broken down into smaller practice stages.
For example, the goal of "I want to learn to play this song", we can break it down into:
－Learn left and right hand skills
－Recognize the chords of this song
－Practice the main melody of this song
2. Did not choose meaningful or suitable exercises
There are two types of people. For the first type when they were practicing guitar, they only kept repeating the songs or familiar passages they had learned. This can't be regarded as "practicing the guitar", this is just "playing the guitar." Practice needs to break through the comfort zone and should feel a little challenging.
The other type of people tend to practice harder things instead of laying a solid foundation. People often practice classic songs, but this is not something you can learn from the beginning.
You can successfully practice this song after countless practice, but you will not have good skills and foundation, so you need a lot of simple songs, so that you can discover and thoroughly master the content of the song, such as basic Open chords, rhythm strumming and arrangement, etc.
3. Excessive pursuit of playing speed
Humans have a somewhat conceited nature, and are always attracted by the fast phrases and dazzling techniques of the guitar playing.
And we also want to be able to play fast, but sloppy shredding is meaningless. If you slow down, you will discover the details in the performance and master the real technique, and this is the real learning. There must be a sufficient foundation to be able to have a steady improvement in technique.
Enhance your muscle memory, finger strength and control by playing slowly. Start practicing slowly and then gradually increase your speed.
4. No tuning
Tuning the sound is definitely the most important and basic thing before playing. Nowadays, there are a lot of tuning tools, including traditional tuner, mobile phone APP, etc., even beginners without tuning concepts can easily get started.
When intonation becomes a problem, you should stop all practice or playing, and you should consider the ears of the audience. Tuner is definitely the basic equipment for guitarists, and beginners also need to develop the correct sense of sound through it.
5. Ignore the rhythm
That is too much focus on the up and down movements of the arm strumming the strings instead of on the beat, and try to follow the beat with your feet while playing, internalize the beat into the body, so as to naturally strumming on the correct beat point.
For example: there is a strumming method commonly used for G chord: down, down, up, and down. There is one of the beat points that we will not brush, that is the third beat, so if your feet If you are tapping, there will be a tap on your foot, but your hands do not need to be strumming.
If you accidentally miss a beat, you must still maintain the inertial motion of your arm.
The audience will always only sway with your rhythm, which is the basic element of music. Moreover, guitar masters spend a lot of time on creating guitar rhythm Riff.
