You can make learning the guitar as easy or as hard as you want. Sure, there are courses that suggest that you can achieve a reasonable standard in one week, however, it depends what you hope to achieve from the guitar.
Playing guitar chords is sometimes one of the most frustrating elements of playing the guitar. Here is how to speed up your chord playing:
- Forget your strumming hand – surely you’re aiming for downstrokes first of all so don’t worry about it for the minute.
- Try changing from the basic open G chord to Em without strumming. The aim is little movement.
- Add on C and then D – again don’t be concerned with your strumming hand.
We have many guitar pupils we teach from week to week, learning to play either the acoustic or electric guitar, some in which struggled with this concept and after a few days of changing between 2-4 chords became less stressful for them.
