Scale is the Music

Terific

Long time back, during my initial phase of learning guitar (will be learner forever), I was unable to figure out scale.

Long time back, during my initial phase of learning guitar (will be learner forever), I was unable to figure out scale. Also, most of the time in a song, for example, in R&B, "I believe I can fly", by mistake I used to get excited, "Wow! That's a great scale changing !". I was absolutely wrong! It's not about changing scale, it's about changing KEY. There are lot of songs composed with changing KEY on a scale. Why, it's like that ? I am pretty sure, one of the great reasons of changing KEY is harmony consideration. We say, C major scale, pentatonic A minor or blues enthusiasts say, "Blue C minor". Every time we say a SCALE and a KEY. Here, KEY C in Blue minor scale. Those are familiar with Indian classical, must be familiar with "malkosh", "vhairabi", "iman" etc. These are all different scales. Quick question may come into your mind, can we change scale in a single song ? Answer is no as well as yes. Be careful about changing scale while you're composing a song or a piece of music. Often, scale has direct relationship with song genre. Scales of JAZZ, BLUES are pretty much defined. Still, you've option to use different scales in a single piece of music. You have to be creative enough to do that and in this case your experiment should be with honest MIXING of scales, NOT CHANGING scales. Listen carefully, Steve Ray Vaughan's ballad in electric guitar, "Lenny". How he used both Pentatonic minor and Blue minor in a single piece !

Chromatic Exercises.

To play guitar like a pro, your left and right hand must sync well. That means, for each up and down stroke, each finger must work individualy. Chromatic exercises are very powerful exercises for syncing your left and right hand. Although it seems easier, if you do right, it will help you gain your speed and accuracy.So lets take a look into the exercise. This is a single string exercise. Best to start from the first string. 
Use all fingers from 1 to 4, one at a time (That means index, mid,ring and pinky finger). Play from the first fret to fourth fret in the order 1-2-3-4 using each finger for each fret. (Eg : 1st fret-Index finger, 2nd fret-Mid finger, 3rd fret-Ring finger, 4th fret-Pinky finger). Use alternate picking on right hand. (Use Down-Up-Down-Up picking). Move forward on the fretboard with the same pattern and the same fingering. (1-2-3-4, 2-3-4-5, 3-4-5-6..... ) Continue till 12th fret. As this is a bi-directional exercise, as you reach 12th fret, play it backwards.(15-14-13-12, 14-13-12-11, 13-12-11-10 .... )

Some tips for correct practice methods are :

1. Start with a speed that you are comfortable. Dont rush. Use metronome to keep you in the same speed.

2. The first note in every 4 notes must be played in higher accent than the remaining 3 notes. This will keep your pattern in correct order everytime.

3. Dont underestimate the power of this exercise as its simple.

Thanks and always remember; With Practice, Passion and Patience, Anything is possible !

If u want to play a guitar buy a guitar... I have met many students that says like, 'I want to learn guitar but i dont know.. if i could learn it so... teach me some if i feel easy i'll buy one'.. or bla bla bla.. any reason...listen to ur heart deep down inside if u want to play guitar then go grab one.. n start learning. It takes time learning belive it. The longer u be with ur guitar the batter guitarist ull be patience is the key. Listen to GnR patients  (song) keep trying ur best ull play guitar before u knew it.

Well thats the first step dont ever go to 2nd step without compliting the 1st. After compliting the first step which is buying a guitar.. now the 2nd step which is im going to start now. 

Tuning a guitar:

It is not easy s a beginner but very important. Im not talking about buying a tuners or downloading a tuning apps. What im saying is tune it using ur ears. This will improve ur ears. This is very important.

U can practice by using a tuning apps u can tune ur guitar with ur ears n let the apps be the teacher..

Well, the next step is.... when ur traning ur ears.. u can also start learning notes. Every tuning style will change the sound of a guitar n the position of ur guitar notes on ur fread boards. So quick explain: there r 12 notes on a guitar.. same.. s keyboards. A to g. N with a sharp notes. Sharp not is nothing but.. half step up wrd the notes. A note higher..there r 2 notes which dont hav a sharp not that is B and E.

Now! After all thoes step you must hav lernd how to tune n all the  notes.

If u still cant tune.. ur guitar thats fine. But do not give up keep... practice.. u can achieve it.. its just a matter of time.. once ir familiar whit the sounds.. u can tune it easily.. so tune a guitar try it.. by listening a guitar tuning video from youtube.. once u finish tuning chack it with a tuning apps.. n fix ur mistake do it every time u sit for practice do this practice first. Traning ur ear is must..

N the notea on a fread board.

Now.. practice:

How to play chords n solo... in this stages u cant !! actualy!!.... what I mean to say practical is.. to build your muscle memory... its a long way from playing songs. But patient is the key.

Learn some scale n practice every day... n some chords progression... if u hav some free free time.. u can speed up the process by starting some brain works.. like family chords how r thay form how to figer it out. N scales progration pentatonic scales n so on... 

U may lern every theory there is to know for the song type u choose... but still cant play or cant make it sound gud... well dont worry like i said the longer u stay with ur guitar the batter u will b... you should focus on chord changing. It should b smooth. N u should understand to use a metronome. N play along with it it will improve ur rythm. N for solo... u should understand which chords is marching with which notes n scales... depending apound ur chords progression u should constructed ur solo.

Well if u want to copy n play... the only thing u hav to focus is fingerstyle n rythm style.. like learn some scale n practice different style of playing like legato hammer on pull off. Banding release make ur finger ready for any up coming songs... s well s rythm. Learn some struming styles. Like down up up  down up up down up down up!

N so own...

Well thats it for buiginners lesson... there r lots of things beep in side but i cant expln on text. U i hop its not borring. I try to shortn it.. so that the readers will feel bord.. actualy theory is bord in every subject... hop i help you...

Most beginners may have heard and even felt obligated to follow the advice coming from well-meaning but ill-informed friends or relatives with little or no knowledge about the art or the instrument. "First buy a cheap guitar. Buy a good guitar only once you can play well. A beginner should only buy an acoustic guitar while learning to play. Acoustic guitars can’t/should not have electronics. Electric guitars are dangerous as you may get a shock. And so on....

All these precious pieces of advice are not completely true. A guitar is a guitar is a guitar. The style you want to play however could make a difference with the kind of guitar you would want to buy.  Let’s see the different types of guitars to get a better understanding of what we want to buy and learn to play.

Guitars come in two main types: Acoustic and Electric.

Acoustic guitars have steel string guitars, 12 string steel guitars and nylon string guitars. All are used for different styles of music. Electric guitars are made of a solid body unlike the hollow acoustic ones. Electro acoustic guitars are acoustic guitars with pickups and electronics but with a thinner body and soundhole. Once again each type is used for a particular style of playing. 

 

Acoustic or Electric

The steel stringed acoustic guitar is a great instrument to start your musical journey. The sound created from the steel strings is louder than that of nylon strings, and because of this it is a favorite beginner’s guitar. One can just pick it up and play it anytime, anywhere. Students mostly do not opt for an electric guitar because of the budget. An electric guitar requires an amplifier and a speaker or an amplifier speaker combo unit to be heard. Now that is going to raise a beginner’s budget. Another reason why an acoustic guitar is preferred for beginners is because the string gauges are a bit heavier than an electric guitar and this helps a beginner to build finger and hand strength which makes it a lot easier to play an electric guitar later.

Cost

Acoustic guitars may seem cheap and some really are, but the good ones are a lot more expensive than one can imagine. As for buying a cheap guitar while learning to play, it only has its downsides. The main reasons for buying a cheap guitar would be, you really want to learn to play the guitar and have absolutely no money to afford a decent one or you are not really sure if you have it in you, and if you would be able to, or want to continue learning to play.

Whatever the reason, don’t buy a cheap guitar! They are so badly made that they are very difficult to play and beginners usually give up learning to play for the wrong reason. Besides that if ever one has to sell it, there is absolutely no resale value. Buy a reasonably priced guitar instead. If you still can’t afford that, buy a used one!

If you are on a very low budget, a used guitar is a very good option as long as you have an experienced instructor/player to help you choose the right one.  There are many who have not been able to move forward with their guitar playing and have chosen to sell their instrument. Many of these people bought very nice guitars. Nice guitars may be a little more expensive than a cheap one but they are good guitars! Buy a nice guitar! You will enjoy the process of learning and playing.  

Thanks for reading and All the best with your musical journey!

Tuning your guitar

Sebastian Andrade

I have been playing the guitar professionally since the year 1988 and teaching for more than two decades...

The 6 strings of the guitar are tuned to 6 different notes with the lowest in pitch (thickest and closest to the ceiling) being the 6th string and the highest in pitch (thinnest and closest to the floor) being the 1st string. This can be a bit confusing as what is known as the top or high E string is... read more

The 6 strings of the guitar are tuned to 6 different notes with the lowest in pitch (thickest and closest to the ceiling) being the 6th string and the highest in pitch (thinnest and closest to the floor) being the 1st string. This can be a bit confusing as what is known as the top or high E string is actually the string closest to the floor!

E - First String (Thinnest and closest to the floor)

B – Second String

G – Third String

D – Fourth String

A – Fifth String

E – Sixth String (Thickest and closest to the ceiling) 

This is called “standard” tuning. There are many other ways of tuning the guitar but for most songs this tuning does the job. It is highly recommended to get an electronic guitar tuner. Tuners are available as stand alone tuner devices, or could have a built in metronome. Tuner apps are also available for android, windos and Iphones. When using the tuner, pluck the open string and let it ring out for as long as possible for the tuner to work out what the note is. Once you can see the needle being displayed on the tuner tighten or loosen the string as required until the needle is in the middle of the display.

Tempo and the use of a Metronome

Tempo is the Italian word for time, and we use it to describe how quickly a piece of music is performed. We measure tempo with Beats Per Minute, or BPM.

Tempo is the Italian word for time, and we use it to describe how quickly a piece of music is performed. We measure tempo with Beats Per Minute, or BPM. If something is defined as 60 BPM then we know there is a beat every second, and if a piece of music is set to a specific BPM then those beats will strictly fall to the selected time.

A metronome is a device used by musicians to maintain a steady pace while playing a musical piece.  This pace (tempo) is adjustable and the device produces an aural beat. It is of utmost importance to learn to keep to the pace of a metronome.

These devices are available in Analog and Digital versions. They are also available as apps for android and IPhone.
