lessons for beginners - if you really want to
learn to play the guitar, you will!
(this info is old - you can ask a
question in the forum )
Free guitar lessons for beginners are what you
will get from this site. You will read, listen to
my work and work on your guitar playing skills
remembering my instructiuon. The instruction may
not necessarily be notes or postures of the
hands. In fact, sometimes it may seem quite
strange to you. Read these 3 for example:
1. Playing the guitar is very
easy, but learning to play is a hard, full time
job. I've done it for five years and now you can
learn from me like I've learned from my teachers.
2. Playing any instrument is done
by concentration on the action of playing,
avoiding distractors. Or rather, allowing
distractors to pass away and keeping the rhythm.
3. Playing the guitar is very
hard, but most people (especially guitar
teachers) claim it is easy in order to get money
from teaching. It's as hard as any other job or
hobby, but in the end you gain substantial profit
and that's one of the reasons why it is so
I hope you've already got an idea
of the "taste" of these free guitar
lessons for beginners. They will be absolutely
crazy :-), but I can guarantee that if you like
good guitar players (like me :-), one day you'll

can be done only if there are two (or more)
participants (of course :-) . So, you have to
practice guitar playing and not just read my
ideas. It's a good idea to practice everyday, but
some people say you should practice only when you
feel like it.
I think guitar playing is a fine
art and I hate people who claim that it is a
science (in the modern sense of the word). Guitar
playing is something very subtle and gentle like
sex or swimming or flying (well, I can't say,
really, I'm not Icarus :-)... yet :-)
1. Sit on your butt and play.
2. Do other things
5. Go to the toilet
6. Brush your teeth
7. Eat your breakfast

Now, enough humour. Let's get to
the guitar playing posture. As you know,
basically there are 2 types of postures:
The most important thing in both
postures is to hold the guitar, play and not to
fall asleep :-) (I'm always kidding to keep you
interested). Now, seriously, when you are sitting
and playing, it is a good idea that you sit
comfortably (not too comfortably :-), or may be
if you don't feel like sitting, stand up.
When you stand and play at the same time, the
audience is taking you more seriously. As though
you'd be doing something very important and they
are obliged to whatch.
I'm feeling so funny. I don't know why, I
swear. I'll go to play some guitar. Maybe I'll
think of something clever to pass on to you...
Hu... That's better. Now where were we?
Doesn't matter. I'll just continue whatever I was
trying to say.
You know, I'm playing the guitar both for
pleasure and for improving my skill. Every time I
practice, I'm becoming a better player (well,
most of the times).
Do you practice every day? (I'm talking to
What? Guitar playing?
Yes, you idiot!
Hey! If you call me that 2 times more, you're
out! (I sound like my geography teacher)
As I said, I play the guitar more often than
not and most of the times I enjoy playing very
much (maybe sometimes too much). So, yes you can
say that it's "every day" in the sense
that it's regularly. Not something like "I
play when I want to" or "I just
play" or "I play 66 minutes per every
24 hours". May be "I just play" is
a good answer but it's not very instructional. He
This wasn't exactly what you thought free
guitar lessons for beginners should be but at
least I had a good time writing it (I hope you
too). I would love to teach you to play the
guitar, but what will you give me in return?
Doesn't matter, I'll go to a cave and I'll eat
the fruits of nature. But how will I connect to
