"One word amazing. I think I was lil skeptical to start of with online class but 15 mins into class 1 and I was sure I have found my teacher who will take my learning to the next level. Shovik has explained the theory so well that it is easy and fun. I am not learning just the guitar I am actually learning music composition. I am gonna be learning from Shovik for next few years that's for sure. Patience, smile and persistence are 3 things I get in every class apart from knowledge from him. I Will highly recommend Shovik to anyone who's looking to learn music. "

"What are the first steps of learning how to play the electric guitar?" 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

Spend a few years on acoustic guitar first to get a grasp of the fretboard and all the scale shapes ,arpeggios ,triads,chord inversions and build finger strength and control as much as possible..then move on to an electric where you'll need to control the sounds by getting to know about the technical aspects like gain, noise gates, amps and cabinets, effects like distortion ,reverb ,chorus,etc..its a whole different world when it comes to play the electric guitar

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

A tutor sets up a curriculum..a path way towards step by step progress..gives the student practice materials as per the level of the student..without tutor the student can never decide to choose the best material out of the immense plethora of info available in the internet..and becomes spolt for choice..so if you are not an advanced player, go and train under a good tutor

Usually from what age can a child begin learning to play the guitar? 

" in   Hobby/Summer Camp/Music & Dance, Music/Instrumental Music/Guitar

5 years can be the age to start if the child is motivated properly both by the parents and the teacher..The child needs to develop a sense of passion for music and for that, a regular listening habit, to quality music, has to be developed..parents should give the child such a milieu to grow up, listening to good informative music everyday..
