How can you make sure you are ready to play the guitar? and start learning? Two things that are often missed be people starting to learn to play the guitar.
Let’s think about these two things and what they might be!
Having short fingernails
This is one that goes out to ladies but sometimes it’s for men as well. It’s important that you keep your fingernails nice and trim to help you learn to play the guitar. You do see people managing to play some “with long fingernails however this is a rarity. And actually makes a very difficult to get a clean sound after your guitar. You might have seen some professional guitar as with very long fingernails on one side, that’s for fingerpicking or classical guitar playing. They will have long fingernails on one side and shorts and a mouse on the other on the fretting hand. But if you are a beginner I would just keep everything nice and short.
Got to make time to do the things that you like. A lot of people say I know have time to practice. Now when you’re a complete beginner you might not know how long it takes to learn an instrument day in day out and stay out the week. And that doesn’t matter it just depends on how fast you wanna progress.
I see you are enjoying the journey then it doesn’t matter if you don’t have time to practice just keep going to your lessons keep doing a few bits here and there to keep it up. But I do you wanna make sure that learning instrument just take time and if you’re expecting to get good then you do need to put some time in.
