Oh, those wonderful gatherings with the guitar around the fire … Or do you prefer the career of a rock star? In any case, if you want to learn how to play this wonderful six-stringed instrument yourself, you need to have several qualities. If they are absent, you need to start developing them.
This is undoubtedly one of the most important points. A guitarist, even a beginner, is simply obliged to develop this quality in himself. You need to be able to maintain the desired tempo and rhythm until the end of the composition. This is sometimes quite difficult, especially if you play guitar and sing at the same time. At first, the metronome will help a lot.
It is believed that an ear for music is given as a gift at birth, but it can still be developed a little. To do this, listen to the sounds around you. Try to go outside and, among the conversations and the roar of cars, highlight, for example, the sound of another person's phone call or birdsong. You can also train without leaving your home. For example, trying to distinguish the sound of the VKontakte notification from the sound of an incoming message without looking at the monitor.
Don't overexert yourself! If you feel excessive nervousness, pain and fatigue in your hands, etc., then it is better to just put the instrument aside and go, for example, for a walk or have a cup of tea, and when peace of mind returns, continue training.
Listen to music, watch other people play the guitar, try to repeat or even do better. All of this will kind of nudge you to work hard, try new things and not stop there.
