If you have a desire to play the guitar, there are plenty of ways to acquire the skill and grow the talent.  You don't need to be born a virtuoso - the below methods will get you off to a flying start.

 

Guitar Lessons

 

People who are fortunate enough to have a guitar teacher living in the area might want to take a few lessons, which many music stores can refer them to.  Learning from someone who is in the same room with you can help you avoid some mistakes that beginners, and even experienced players, might make.  The instructor will be able to point out and correct errors before they become ingrained bad habits that are hard to break.

 

Instructional DVDs

 

If you don’t want to take lessons in person, you can find many instructional DVDs, as well as online classes, that offer some excellent training advice.  You can also find some online video from professional teachers and even your favorite music artists that can help you learn the basics of the guitar, as well as many advanced techniques.

 

Books

 

Another great way to learn is through books.  You can find plenty of books on how to play guitar at your local bookstore, and they often have some excellent diagrams that can help you learn how to hold the guitar and chord structure.  Audio CDs can be helpful, as well.

 

Phone Apps

 

With smart phones becoming so popular, you will be happy to know that you can find apps that offer guitar lessons and chord diagrams.  You can even find some that can help you tune your guitar!

 

As you can see, there are tons of different ways that you can learn to play guitar today.  If you have a guitar and a little self-discipline, there is no reason not to start learning by yourself today!
