After four decades of publication, we have certainly published – in print or online – thousands of useful tips for guitarists.

This short story collects only six of them! However, we hope you'll get something out of this early offer – it's good to know that there are more to come in the near future.

So grab your guitar and let's get started!

  1. Learn something new every day

Find one guitar-related thing a day that you didn't know and learn about—and play it. It could be a riff, lick, chord, scale, practice, song, melody, altered tuning, strum pattern, part of a song that you know all the riffs for but never bothered to learn the 'boring' connecting part transitions, whatever.

The discipline of seeking, playing, and internalizing a new piece of guitar knowledge every day will feed your subconscious musical instincts, add new concepts to your muscle memory and ultimately aid your ability to express yourself and perform effortlessly on the guitar.

Make this a part of your day and you'll find that as you move on, one thing will become two, then three, and on and on until you devour as much as you can absorb on the guitar, every day!

Now to get mp3 of the songs that we like no longer need to install software on the computer. All we need is a browser and the Fakaza website and the title of the song we want to download. Then just click and download it.
  1. Learn major scale interval

Six simple tips to improve your guitar playing

major provides the building blocks of many of the chords and scales you'll come across as you go through your career.

By understanding the structure of the major scale, we can then begin to tune it in various ways to form triads, seventh chords and extended chords, and understand the modes that accompany them.

The major scale has seven intervals: root, second major, third major, fourth perfect, fifth perfect, sixth major, and seventh major. The intervals between each interval form the WWHWWWH pattern, where W is the whole step and H is the half step.

  1. See C and be B

How many ways can you play a C major chord? A good guitarist knows at least five different places on the fretboard to play them, thanks to the CAGED system. Practice playing four chords, and with each measure, play the chord at a new place in the neck. Of course, this can easily be applied to an E or B7 or A9 chord. We think you understand. But starting from C

  1. Run every chord you know

This tip from Joe Satriani: “It looks silly, but if your finger isn't pointing in a certain place, it's because you haven't challenged it. One day, when I was a teenager, I decided that I would learn every chord in the Joe Pass chord book I had. I do it every day; there is no substitute for bonehead repetition.

"The great thing is, once you get used to this exercise, you'll actually be forcing your fingers to go from chord to chord to chord — chords that have no connection to each other — and great things can come from that." ."

  1. Learn your favorite guitar solos verbatim

The late, great Eddie Van Halen spent the early part of his career playing along with various records until the sound he played matched what was on the record he played (See example below).

Doing this will increase your vocabulary as well as improve your delivery, feel, style awareness, and sense of contour of your solo.

  1. Track your progress

The growth of any guitarist can be enhanced by an awareness of that growth. As you develop the discipline to study and practice every day, it is important to keep a log or diary of your improvement process to further maximize growth.

The easiest way to do this is to jot down your routine. You'll find that tracking your workouts will help you focus on future training sessions, maintain and continue to be aware of your progress and discover highly rewarding training phases in your past that can be replicated and scaled up when you feel your growth has stalled.
