When you’re at high school, you can usually find a teacher for whatever instrument you want, whether it’s bass, piano, singing or another musical instrument.
However, guitar is often a neglected instrument when it comes to getting private classes at your school.
That’s why it's so valuable to have guitar teachers available on a website such as Superprof, where you can view all the different types of classes available, and contact the teacher who you think will best help you improve your musical ability.
Bizarrely enough, playing the guitar can be learned through online lessons these days! Get in touch with a tutor, and they will instruct you and demonstrate how to create chords, licks, scales and the rest over video call! Of course, they will send you some books for you to jam along to, and they will give you feedback on correct fretboard fingering and fingerstyle/picking, all from the comfort of your own home address.
If you can’t find the ideal teaching on offer in Geelong, expand your search to Melbourne, or even the rest of Australia, with online classes! Learning online is a different experience, but you will find a really large range of great teachers available all over Australis to help you start playing like you have years of experience!
Just search through Superprof and phone a tutor whose face you trust, and who seems to be great at teaching guitars, piano, bass and the rest.
Are you an acoustic guitarist, or an electric guitarist? Why not be both? Both instruments have their advantages.
The electric guitar is an extremely versatile unit, with many changes you can make to the amplified sounds using guitar effects, pedals and amplification units.
Acoustic guitar is an instant campfire classic. It can still handle a diverse range of genres such as blues, folk and soft rock, and it requires next to no additional equipment! Guitar lessons for beginners often commence with acoustic guitar, with chords being taught to give the student the ability to play rhythm guitar.
Beginning guitar is undoubtedly the most difficult phase of learning the guitar.
The best guitar teachers teach strumming patterns and common chords, so students can learn how to play their favourite songs. Guitar lessons for beginners don’t have to be frustrating, the most important thing is that students practice timing and intonation in this phase. That’s why it's critical for beginners to be taught by an experienced teacher. After that, students can strum away to tablature or videos found online.
The first chords any student should learn while doing lessons online are the ones which do not require barring - that is, laying the finger flat across multiple strings on the fretboard. The chords which avoid this technique are C, G, D, E, A, Am, Em and Dm. With just these chords, the student will be able to perform a wide variety of songs, in particular pop songs.
Just look at the Axis of Awesome’s Four Chord Song to see how many popular songs have a simple, continuous four-chord structure that any guitarist can jam along with. For beginners, these simple chords can be learned from charts in a book, while correct strumming is the focus of the lessons.
While during online guitar lessons it may be more difficult to adjust the students fingering for chords in-person, the internet proves an extremely useful resource for beginner guitar players attempting to master these beginner chords.
Once you’ve mastered the chords, and even learned how to play some barre chords, you will be ready to channel your inner Hendrix and belt out some lead guitar lines! This will include improvisation over pentatonic scales, as well as famous rock guitar riffs such as ’Smoke on the Water’, ‘Voodoo Child’, ‘Enter Sandman’, ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ and many more.
Playing solos involves developing an instinctual sense of where each note is located on the fretboard. Countless hours of jamming and ear training over a variety of styles of music is essential in developing the various guitar tricks we see Frusciante, May, Clapton, Harrison and Hendrix pull out on a regular basis. Guitar lessons for beginners set the foundation for this type of creative mastery to be executed later on.
Another benefit from seeking out online material for learning is that the internet provides countless jam tracks for you to try out your new skills over the top of. For example, the YouTube channel ‘Elevated Jam Tracks’ provides online guitar lessons in the form of a graphic of a fretboard with the notes which fit the key of the track highlighted. The audio plays an instrumental track for you to jam along with.
These fantastic new types of guitar lessons for beginners are innovative ways to use the internet to further your guitar ability. I would highly recommend you check this out once you’ve mastered the chords and are ready to improvise and play lead guitar.
Another question for any would-be guitar learner may be: how much music theory do I need to know? The answer: how long is a piece of string? The world of music theory is endlessly deep and complex, much like mathematics. as a beginner guitar player, you can begin with the basics, such as the cycle of 4ths and 5ths as well as common chord progressions and combinations for composition.
Acoustic guitar tabs will show you where to place your finger so you needn’t worry about knowing exactly which note you’re playing every time, that can come later. The most important thing is that you’re enjoying it and improving. Online guitar lessons will deal with the technique before they go into theory. However, there will be ample time to practice theory later once you have mastered the basics of guitars.
The pay off for all this work nailing your scales and reading books will be in your studio when you communicate with your favourite musicians in a way you never could before. If you love Queen, or Pink Floyd more than anything in the world, then ask your guitar teacher to teach you the chords for one of their simpler songs to start out. This will keep you motivated and make you come back year after year.
Many studios or college settings offer a free guitar lesson to begin, to ignite that passion within you. Many will also come to your home address in Geelong or Melbourne to work with you. So go out there and find some classes, be it for blues, rock or any other genre. Many experienced teachers are versatile and will be happy to instruct you in the genre that you prefer, at your own home address! Even classical guitar can be very rewarding to practice! Whatever you do, just play! And make sure your lessons motivate you to jam more and more every day.
A music lesson at school often focuses on classical music, and neglects the great music of the times such as rock and contemporary singing. In Melbourne and Geelong, as well as anywhere else in Victoria or Australia, Superprof has an abundance of teachers available with many a year of experience giving lessons at a college, school or privately. Show them a book or website you want to gain knowledge from, and they will set you on that path.
