Whether you’ve just got your first guitar, or have been strumming away for a while, it’s always a good idea to have a grounding in the basics of the instrument.
After all, if you don’t know how to tune your guitar, replace a string, hold a plectrum or fret a note, then you’re not going to get very far.
Why not have a look at our series of starter guitar lessons, which will give you all the knowledge you need to make a start – or to correct recurring problems.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, why not move on to some more complex techniques? A few hours practicing some simple but effective techniques could totally revolutionise your playing. Check out our guitar lessons, which include fretting tips, how to use your amp, how to play clean open chords, string bending, tapping, harmonics and more.
