Learn The Guitar

Learning The Guitar For Beginners

To learn any instrument you must first learn some musical theory and the basic rudiments.
You must be able to read notes from a score sheet where a song is placed.

In this case the Guitar which is made up of a fret board that carries all the notes that you will need to play a song, but first you must be familiar with names of the 6 strings  

All notes in music are made up of an alphabetical and numerical format.
With these notes played in a special sequence you can derive a scale.
A good example is the key of C major the scale will carry 8 notes  C D E F G A B C like the alphabet

For example A major scale is a diatonic scale

scale is any set of musical notes ordered by fundamental frequency or pitch.  A scale ordered by increasing pitch is an ascending scale, and a scale ordered by decreasing pitch is a descending scale.

And the sound will be the typical (do re mi fa so la ti do)
That most everyone has already heard.

And now that you understand more about the fundamentals of music theory.

Let us take a look at the Guitar

The guitar is made up of 6 strings. which are identified by letters, the first or the high string is the E string, second is the B, The third is the G, fourth  is D, the fifth is A  then E again but bass this time, which will be the octive of the first E

In our next Lesson
We will learn the notes

The Guitar FretBoard

The guitar fretboard (where you find your notes) is the part of the guitar where all of the frets are placed. It is used by holding down the strings against each fret and then either picking or strumming on them.

Each fret represents a new note for each string, So we press the spaces in between the fret seperators to create the note.

The note on the high or fist string and the note on the bass or last string are on the same fret are the same but one is an octive of the other, meaning one is high and one is low but the same note.

And as you would notice from the example on the fretboard A is octive to A on other strings and on other frets.
