Coordinate your left and your right hand.
Sure, we were all hyped when we decided to start playing guitar. But what we failed to see at that point is that all the guitar heroes we love had one hell of a job practicing for thousands and thousands of hours before they managed to become what they are today. And some beginner guitar players might feel stuck at times, seeing that they are doing their best but are not making any significant progress.
But don’t be discouraged! Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio shared a useful guitar lesson for beginners explaining what is it in their practice routine that’s most likely hindering their progress.
One of the main issues unexperienced guitarists face is lack of coordination between the fretting and picking hand. As Andrew showed with one example in which he played a G major scale on 10th position, you always have to be aware of where the tip of your guitar pick is at all times. Same goes for any scale or arpeggio or a chord – know where the tip of your pick is.
But why is it difficult for some beginners to coordinate left and right hand? Well, it’s mostly due to the inconsistent sitting while playing and practicing. The point is that wherever you practice your guitar you need to be sitting the same way. You can check out more info on this in the player.
