Just the fact an acoustic guitar is portable means you can play it whenever you like and wherever you are, without the need for amps or trucks.
Some people learn how to play through books while others scour the Internet for online lessons at places like Jamorama.com, JamPlay.com and I wouldn’t want to leave out my favourite place which is Youtube.com.
An Acoustic Guitar And A Place To Learn
Using the three sites I mentioned above you can go from knowing nothing to learning how to play acoustic guitar like a pro. I started with pop and rock but now my interests have moved into blues and bluegrass as well. All on my trusty Yamaha acoustic guitar.
If you really want to learn how to play the acoustic guitar, you need to have self-discipline. This involves setting up a system for learning that you will dedicate yourself to following. Just as it is with everything, you need to have focus, discipline, and the determination when learning how to play the acoustic guitar.
I set aside time every day it’s possible, for practicing what I’m learning. If you’re practicing in the house, choose a favourite spot where you can lay all your guitar books and chords open as you play.
I am one of those people would tries to practice at least an hour or more every day, again when possible. I will allow myself to miss a practice if I just have to go fishing. By the time I get back home I usually don’t have the energy to pick up the guitar.
If you don’t practice you’re likely NOT to go far so give yourself at least a half hour of dedicated practice, while you’re learning how to play your acoustic guitar. This way you will be less likely to give up like so many of my friends have done.
