Overview

I started playing professionally at the age of 15. Since then I've played all styles of popular western music. Recorded guitar on countless number of South Indian film songs with most of the big music directors. Still playing guitar for Live performances and still recording. Tried teaching guitar regularly about 5 years ago for one year with a few students and was really inspired by the enthusiasm of the children. I am ready to start the process again this time and train a new set of guitar players who can play music as their hobby or even professionally if they make it to the PRO level.

"How can I start learning guitar on my own?" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Indian Film music, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Western Classical, More... Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Indian classical Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Jazz & Blues

1.Buy an acoustic guitar, without owning one it would be difficult to improve the learning process. 

2. Watch some basic lessons for beginners and start trying them out on the guitar.

3. Try to get the help of a friend who already knows some guitar.

4. Find a guitar teacher if you like playing the guitar and want to improve very quickly.

Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Indian classical Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Jazz & Blues

Buy an acoustic guitar... you will need it to practise a bit everyday to strengethen your hands and finger tips. Learn some basic chords in the open position from a book or online. if you are keen on pursuing playing guitar find a teacher near your area and start classes. You will need a teacher to ell you if you are doing things correctly. Once you get past the initial stage of being comfortable with an acoustic guitar its time to buy and electric and try the same thing on the electric. Follow up with exercises for improving your playing.

"What are some good songs to learn on the guitar for beginners?" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Indian Film music, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Western Classical, More... Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Indian classical Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar/Jazz & Blues

Definitely the tune of Happy birthday to you and a few nursery rhymes since they are easy to play on any string. Then try to play simple chords if you are a beginner on any of the open string keys.
