No matter where you are on your journey in beginning guitar, there are several things to think about when you are learning how to play the guitar for beginners. The most common way for someone to learn to play the guitar is to start with various basic chord patterns in each key and then move on to more advanced chords. One of the main things however, is to decide what you want to do when you learn the guitar, in other words, what kind of player do you want to be and what kind of music do you want to play. Basically, what is your goal for guitar playing?
When you decide on your goals for guitar playing you can then begin to learn the styles that make up what best fits your style. Depending on what you want to learn, there are different ways to play the guitar. Rock guitar, jazz guitar, country guitar, classical and shred guitar all have different methods that need to be learned and mastered if you want to go in one or more of those specific directions.
The best thing to do when starting at the very beginning (even if you have no idea where you want to go with your playing) however, is to get yourself a good guitar chord chart. This is really the foundation of all guitar playing because if you don't know chords, there probably isn't much you can play on the guitar. It is also very important to learn the various note positions on the frets as well. Once you know where the notes on the guitar neck are and some basic chords, you will be all set to move into more advanced learning on your instrument.
After you learn a few chords, it is then important to learn what scales or key to play in. Scales will help you understand what notes can be played in whatever key a song is in. When someone asks you the question, what key is this song in, you will then immediately know what notes you can play on the fretboard. You will really be excited with your guitar playing as soon as you recognize the key you are in.
