Here we focus on something very important for guitar players of all levels.
What’s really interesting about this important topic is that it is rarely discussed. And surprisingly, even when guitarists learn about it, it’s usually cast aside as one of those things to do later. The main reason for this is because most guitarists underestimate just how powerful this simple thing is. Once guitarists try it, they notice consistent improvement in their playing.
To wrap up this 3-part series, we will look at three additional tips that will help you to learn the guitar on your own.
In part 1 of this series, we looked at three important tips to get you learning to play the guitar quickly. Now let’s continue with some additional and equally important tips.
You’ve decided it’s time to learn to play guitar. You’ve put it off for long enough.
Now that you are ready, the big question you have is: “what’s the best way to learn guitar on your own?”
The good news is there are many effective ways to learn guitar on your own. The bad news is there are many, many ways that you can waste your valuable time.

In this tutorial, we look at an accelerated learning technique for learning guitar solos faster.
Now that you know how major chords are built, we will look at how to apply the formulas to actual chord fingerings on the guitar.
Major chords are built by taking the 1st, 3rd and 5th notes from the major scale.
A triad is a chord that contains three different notes.
To understand how chords are built, we return to the major scale.
Take the first, third and fifth notes from the C major scale and you will have a C major chord.
