Most individual’s love playing the guitar because they feel like it’s an expressive instrument. From classical to metal sounds, everything can be played on the guitar with just the right amount of coordination between the chords and the string.

Who can play the guitar and what are the prerequisites?

While no one should be ashamed of the age that one desires to learn the instrument, be it 16 or 36, playing the guitar should be a passion that stems directly from the heart. Beginners, however, should learn some basic points before starting to play on the guitar. They are:

•    Holding the guitar the right way is mandatory. The strings should free flow and should not be covered by the hands.

•    It is essential to master the chords first, the central unit for playing any instrument.

•    The parts of the guitar namely, the bridge, neck, frets, tuning pegs and headstock have significant roles to play. Beginners shouldn’t neglect one and focus on the other, as that does not create a good sound.

•    The strings should be horizontally played with the pegs. The pegs turn to strengthen the strings so as to bring out the desired sound.

One should be careful with the hands at first, as it might start to bleed because of learning to play the strings. This leads to many people leaving the instrument, days after joining to learn it. Therefore, one should be mentally prepared and ready to focus to get rid of all pain to master the instrument.
