If you\u2019ve never played guitar at all before then this quick guide will help you get familiar with some of the terms used in guitar playing. You don\u2019t need to know all this stuff before starting to learn. Have a read through but don\u2019t get bogged down with any details you may not understand. Once you start learning everything quickly begins to make sense
There are 3 basic types of guitar:
While you're using the PC you'll want to be able to use the computer
the guitar steady at the same time.
The sitting position in the photo
should be OK most of the time.
The curved underside of the guitar
is resting on the right thigh and
the guitar neck is pointing slightly
Your fret hand (the one that
fingers notes on the fretboard)
should be able to move around
without having to actually hold the
guitar in place.
When you\u2019re performing you may
want to stand with the guitar in
which case you\u2019ll need a strap.
You can stand with electrics and
most acoustic steel-string guitars
but you would normally sit with an
acoustic nylon string guitar.
Whichever way you hold the guitar, try to keep your shoulders
relaxed and make a point of thinking about your posture regularly.
Sometimes tension builds up without you noticing it. If you feel
tense, stop playing, relax and try to rebalance your position a little.
Plucking the strings with your
fingers is known as
FINGERSTYLE guitar playing.
When you play fingerstyle you
use the tips of the fingers or
fingernails and you try to keep
the thumb in front of the fingers.
