Believe me, the guitarists who devote more hours of pr actice will soon overcome their friends in skills with the instrument and musica l competence. Therefore, if you give an hour or maybe two hours of your day to p ractice, you will see satisfactory results faster. Obviously you need to have yo ur guitar. If you do not already have one, this book has an entire chapter devot ed to that subject, and you can then choose which type of guitar has more to do with his style. You also need access to a tuner, or some way to tune your guitar . It is important for learning and practice your guitar is always tuned.€Since t his is one of the most common reasons that make the aspiring guitarists give up. It is their inability to tune their guitars, and therefore do not have the chor ds or notes sounding as they should, which ends with the efforts of any guitaris t. Undoubtedly, this is more frustrating than having your fingers hurt. After tu ning your guitar, you can start the process that will show you step-by-step how to make the most common chords, diagrams with the correct position of the chords and lyrics also simpler and easier to learn, and chord progressions for you bui ld strength and dexterity in the fingers.

Anyone can learn t o play, although some find it easier to assimilate than others. However, what de termines success is your willpower. 4 Brief history of the guitar The guitar is a stringed instrument like the harp and lute, and as such, also ha d its origin in the East. When the Moors in the eighth century, dominated Spain, there have left many of their customs and habits, which assimilated by the Span ish people remained among them until our present day. So it was with the guitar. As was appreciated in Spain who became the folk instrument, then spreading from there throughout Europe, with the name "Spanish guitar", as that country known as the land of its origin. Before the guitar, the lute was the instrument better known in Europe and so great was the success of the guitar and Spanish guitar, the lute was soon forgotten. In the year 1800, since the guitar was known throug hout the world and notable musicians such as Schubert, Paganini and Weber pages beautiful music composed especially for guitar. Today we know how this instrumen t is wanted and appreciated in any genre of music. Especially in Brazil, where i t is the most popular musical instrument, we can see where wonderful music made only with the musicality of the guitar. Only in Brazil and Portugal, the guitar is known by this name, the rest of the world he is known as "guitar". Lute 5

Buying the right instrument If you already have a guitar or guitar skip this chapter. Buy the right guitar o r the guitar can be much harder than it looks. This happens because of the varie ty of guitars on the market: electric, classical, folk, acoustic, semi-acoustic,

12 string, 7 string etc. just to mention the most common. In this chapter we'll also talk about guitars, I believe that many already have one in your home or e ven intend to buy one. It is important you know what kind of music you want to p lay. If you only have interest in land, your focus will probably be an electric guitar. If you would like to play popular music, an acoustic guitar with steel s trings will be a great choice. What about classical music or strumming without s traw? A classical guitar is definitely what you would need. So, knowing what you really want to play, it's definitely a great reference when buying your guitar. Classical guitar with nylon strings Used in Classical music and also other styles that do not use straw, like jazz. Besides the flexible nylon strings, he has a long arm that allows a better finge ring. This guitar is suitable for beginners. Folk guitar with steel strings This is a versatile instrument used in a wide variety of music styles including folk, swing, rock and blues. Usually has a great body and an arm straight. Steel strings provide more quality to the sound and the large body allows for greater resonance and volume 6 Les Paul model electric guitar Named after a great guitar player and innovative musician, this guitar has a ton e out of the ordinary, and a sustain (support note) very long. It has two humbuc king pickups or humbucking pickup that creates a great tone, fret jumbo that mak es your fingers glide better. It is excellent (given) to play Rock, and at times , Jazz. Model Stratocaster electric guitar Probably the most famous and celebrated guitar on the planet. It has been used i n virtually all musical styles, but is best known for its heavy use in the Blues . It has smooth pickups and arm. Telecaster electric guitar model It is the favorite to play Sertanejo / Country. The Telecasters normally have th e opportunity to spend the stringing through the body or just fixed the bridge 7 Semi-acoustic electric guitar This is a favorite of jazz musicians, but is also a great blues guitar. She has a warm timbre, with purity of sound. It uses two humbucking pickups.

When choosing your guitar, consider a few factors: • • • • If money is good and easy to play The Sound appearance. Which is more important? Each is important in your way! So (not in order of impo

rtance) here are some reasons on each factor: • • Price: If you do not have much money, it is obvious that the price you will pay is very important! Many of us have a "limit on the wallet." This is already self-explanatory, no? If it is goo d and easy to play: this question is very important. The strings are close to th e frets? The arm fits your hand comfortably? The shape of the guitar (or guitar) is comfortable to hold? All this has a big impact on your progress as a guitari st. Anything that might slow your progress can be daunting, and therefore must b e discarded. • Sound: notes when you touch it, hold up (enough to last silent)? The sound of guitar or guitar sounds full bodied and full or bright and sharp? W hat kind of tone you want? For example, rock or metal guitarists prefer guitars sound more full bodied and full. • Appearance: Appearance is important? You bet! You will want to look for your guitar and find it cool. Play with something tha t seems a waste not recycled will inspire you too ... Moreover, the appearance o f the guitar is related to the musical style that you want to play. For example, the Telecaster guitars have a format that is associated with country music or b lues, as well as the Les Paul are associated with the Rock, and Flying V are the face of metalheads. 8 Now, just choose the instrument will be purchased new or used. There are advanta ges and disadvantages in each case but generally, the first difference is the co st. But it is important to note that the guitars (in general) does not weaken ea sily, so it is important to take care and avoid falls, scratches etc.. However, you may pay a price for a used instrument, which is almost negligible compared t o a new instrument at the same level. The downside is that there will probably b e some wear on the head or the frets, or other problems more hidden or hard to s ee. There are many new instruments whose price is taken into account. And though maybe not as cheap as those normally used are, they have the advantage of havin g much less risk with regard to quality. Of course not all new instruments are g reat, but at least you get a warranty. So it is interesting to compare the price s of guitars or guitars new and used and provide a price range that you want to spend. Do not forget to buy a case! There are two types: the one with the "Hulk" hard, hard, and he who has the soft shell. You should opt for a rigid material. When buying the guitar / guitar, where to shop, you usually have to purchase ca se discount. However, if you do not buy it, you're always bothering with hits, s cratches, etc., and will always be more complicated to carry your guitar / guita r from one place to another. Case hull rigid hull with soft Case Choose an instrument which has the strings close to the frets, you will find it easier to play. However, if they are too close they will produce a buzz, and wil l affect the tone produced. Be certain that it produces a clean sound, no hum in any of the frets and the guitar / guitar was made with quality wood, so that th e arm does not bend. 9 Generally recommended for beginners is the guitar nylon strings. Or how they are best known: Classical Guitar. First, are recommended because they are easier to pick than a steel string. The classical guitar has the largest branch of all. A lthough at first appear to be more difficult to play with the larger arm, you ha ve an easier time to position your fingers, avoiding the problem of large finger s bump into other strings, ruining the sound. That is very true, if we compare i t with electric guitars, which has a narrower arm. So having more space between the strings you have less chance of this happening. Moreover, a larger arm will make you acquire dexterity in your fingers much faster. Finally, when you start with acoustic nylon guitar, you do not need to buy an amplifier or any other acc essory. You can play anywhere and be heard loud and clear. Besides the mobility it allows, it also produces clear sounds,€that will enable him hear his real pla ying. Therefore, it is highly recommended. However, if you prefer to buy an elec

tric guitar first, and has no interest in acoustics, you have numerous options o f guitars, amplifiers and a host of other accessories and equipment. Despite all this paraphernalia is pretty cool, do not forget that what matters most is the instrument! Regardless of how much money you have, try to buy the best instrumen t possible. Even that would prohibit you get an amplifier. Unless you play in a band, you do not necessarily need the amplifier to start their practice, and how your instrument is better, easier and more enjoyable will be your studies! Reme mber: in many cases what you get is proportional to what you pay for! So have al l these tips in mind at the time of seeking the best for you! 10

Basic theory Before implementing a practical study of the guitar, you'd have a basic theoreti cal knowledge about music.

What is music?? Music is nothing but the universal art of combining sounds. It is the way to exp ress yourself through melodies. Moreover, the music is the first of the seven un iversal arts. Since its first steps, she won the intimate desire of musicians to export the inner faces, as though he, the man revealed inside. All we can hear are sounds; a hoot, howl, thunder, a timber being dragged, etc.. When selecting sounds in harmony, we are transforming these sounds into melody, or music. The s ounds can be divided into two categories: Thundering sounds: are sounds ranging from tone serious and acute as those produ ced by musical instruments. Not thundering sounds: sounds that are not have this variation and produce simple sounds like any noise. COMMENTS; a) Although it is considered a musical instrument, the drums and percussion instruments produce n o tone. They are used to give rhythm to the music. b) The human voice is conside red the most complex instrument, because producing thunderous sounds or not. Musical Notes Musical notes are thundering sounds organized in a much known, C, D, E, F, G, A and SI. These are the famous basic musical notes. Play a song is, therefore, sel ect those notes in a melody. To simplify the nomenclature, these notes represent letters. See below: C C D D E Mi F F G Sol A There B Si 11

Sharp and Flat For too long those musical notes were sovereign. However, we noted that there we re sound variation between some of these notes until later emerged that the midt ones just fill those spaces, which actually would make notes. Only, instead of b eing appointed by other names, these half-tones were named according to the note s next to them by the ratio sharp and flat. Let us first, from which these notes are halftones (here represented by gaps): A B C __ __ __ __ D E F G __ __ So between them and the DO and MI and no halftone Each such space, which is a no te as any one, get two names for the sharp-flat:

• • Pound sign (#) is the name of the halftone with respect to the note that lies ah ead. Flat (b) is the halftone placed a space before the note. We say that the space between the notes C and D has a half-tone, so a note recei ving two names for the sharp and flat. Example 01: C C # and Db D Example 02: 12 This halftoning has two names; C-sharp (for it is half-tone front C) and D-flat (for being half-tone before D). So we call this note: C # or Db. The same applie s to all existing half-tones (Bb and A #, D # and Eb, F #, Gb, G # and Ab). Ther e are two half-tones in a space only. Is a half-tone in each space and two names for each half-tone. The range of marks is continuous, ie after the last note, b ack to the first, according to the sequence of notes. Tones and Chords WAKE UP is a base formed by harmonic notes for musical accompaniment. Uniting at least three notes that are related to each other, we get a chord. If we add, fo r example, the notes C, E and G will then have a chord that is when the chord of C major (C). This calls for a scale for each chord where the notes will be draw n to certain chords (major, minor and dissonant). TONE TONE or refers to a range of values that select chords that are related to each other to form a string of them in the songs. For example, each chord has a scale where the notes that has to do with it,€these notes are like your relative s (raw notes) and from this scale, the chords are formed on its hue. We will add ress this in a later chapter "Understanding the formation of scales and chords." Knowing your instrument

13 Head (head or hand): Element that is used to hold the strings that Machine head: Element tuning. Pestana: It is the obstacle that lies between the head and arm, which will lead the six grades that represent the six strings that will be play ed freely. Frets / Frets: Are the obstacles that will be seen on the arm in the vertical direction. Give rise to sounds. Home: Space between two frets. Neck: Wh ere the left hand will work any time during execution. It is attached to the spl int. Rosetta ('s Mouth Guitar): Where does the sound produced by vibration of th e strings. Bridge: Where are the strings attached, from end to end, to hand the guitar. Body (Lid): This corresponds to the body of the guitar. Where the sound varies with the size, shape, wood used in making the instrument. How to hold your guitar Before you start playing, it is important that you feel comfortable holding your guitar. The correct posture you should use depends on which style of music you want to play. See below: When you're playing guitar, first you must remember: If you are right-handed: Your right hand should do the fingering on the strings wh ile the left hand makes the chords, as shown in the figure below. Now if you're left-handed: Your left hand should do the fingering on the strings while the rig ht hand makes the chords. Below: Left-handed right-handed 14 e.onlythe

Correct position to play sitting There are 2 ways to play seated. Classic mode You must place the body of the instrument comfortably between her legs, resting the instrument on top of his thigh. It is advisable that you have an adjustable chair, if you have problems reaching the ground with their feet. The neck of th e guitar or guitar must be insured at an angle of 45 degrees, see below: Lefties Destro Although this approach can be used in other musical styles, it more often be use d only in the classical style. So popular - I mean that how popular because it i s the way more used to playing sitting, see below: Lefties Destro 15 Playing standing foot to touch you'll need a belt. Almost all the belts you find in music stores, will perfectly fit you. Left-handed right-handed Basic techniques of guitar When you play always keep in mind: • • If you are right-handed: his right hand s trums the strings while the left hand makes the chords if you're left-handed: hi s left hand strums the chords while his right hand makes the chords. With that in mind let's begin! Notes are played when his fingers "of the hand yo u make the chords" pushing the string down between fret and the neck of the inst rument. It is very important to have correct posture in your hand makes the chor ds, especially in the time to study more complex techniques. The figure below sh ows how you should press the string of his guitar to play a note. Left-handed ri ght-handed 16 There are two ways for you to hold the arm of his guitar, which are: • • Classic Alternative

Classic mode consists of you pressing your thumb against the neck of the instrum ent, see the example below: Lefties Destro The alternative way is to thumb their "hold" the guitar neck, so that for many t eachers can be a bad habit, but in my opinion not to hold so many guitarists ins trument is more comfortable. See example below: Lefties Destro Playing a note Get a good grip is also important for learning guitar. The tip of your finger sh ould fall immediately to the frets, see example: 17 Lefties Handed Now if you're playing chords, the secret is in you put your fingers closer to th e fret, as shown in the figure below: Lefties Destro Note: To hold the chords more easily, put your finger as close to the fret. So y ou do not need much force to execute the chord, but do not put your fingers over the fret, so that will not leave any sound. 18
