Three Main Characteristics of Great Guitar Players

In this road of finding the best guitar course, of turning into a great musician and an outstanding guitar player, there are problems in the way sometimes, that might make you believe like it is an frustrating issue, but then again, if you search for your favorite band, Like one of the best in my opinion Kirk Hammet, what he does on the guitar seems like it can´t be done sometimes, but the important thing here is that if he can do it, then you achieve it as well; Kirk is a very talented guitar player, no questions there, in fact, what I mean is that what he does is something you can learn.

Now, starting to play guitar can be an awesome experience for you, or it could be just a frustrating memory, it depends on your approach, on your will to master an instrument and ultimately it is up to you to step up and make a decision. Of course, you do have to put some effort to see results on your end, and trust me, you will love it; to learn guitar is in many ways the path to an entire new world, the world of music, but more important than that, the world of making your own music.

Now, you can see and hear how a lot of people love the guitar legends such as Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Slash or Joe Satriani, and yes, it looks like they are from another world, they make it look so simple when we know that it is not simple at all; the truth is that on one hand, they were born with the talent, but on the other side, behind their skills there are years of guitar lessons, courses, lessons and above all, endless hours of practice.

The main quality all of them have in common besides their guitar skills is their will, it is their attitude to make things like nobody has before and their love for music; you can see for yourself through time that the people that succeed, the ones that stand in front of thousands are who they are because they created a new way to play guitar, they did not sit down to see how the world turns around, they wrote their names down into history.

There are three important characteristics that every musician needs to focus on to improve his or her skills and stand out from the crowd:

Play guitar every day: This is the most crucial of all three, by practicing everyday you get an advantage that many people don´t have. You get to get a lot better really fast by taking the time to practice every day.

Open your eyes – Expand your horizons: Go beyond your comfort zone, try to find new bands to listen to, new music, or maybe the olides that you haven´t listened to yet. The Woodstock generation had a lot of great bands back in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, (I´m in my mid-twenties).

Self control: You need to be motivated and have discipline to practice on your own either if you get lessons from a private teacher, or if you are teaching guitar yourself with online guitar lessons.

By applying these main principles from the beginning you will be able to cross the line that a lot of people don´t and you will start looking at them over your shoulder; remember, learning guitar is a never ending process, there is always a new lesson to learn or create. If you want to, you are capable of making a difference, have a great day my friend.
