Don’t be fooled!..
Avoid Black Friday
this year!!!..

Hey guys, last year when I went shopping on Black Friday I :

Almost got in a fender bender in the Mall Parking lot
Was Pushed
Was Elbowed
Waited in line for 1+ hours to buy sale items at Target and other Dept Stores
Had people literally “claw” limited stock items out of my hands and more..

But The Worst Part Was:

At the end of the day… After the fighting, pushing, near miss collisions with other cars and seeing people at their worst…

THE DEALS WEREN’T WORTH THE HASSLE!!!

And!

This year the BLACK FRIDAY savings is supposed to be
EVEN LESS
with a projected
RECORD TURNOUT for 2014!!!

Don’t be a sheep led to the slaughter!!! Be smart, shop around spend time with your families, avoid the stores and most of all shop online from home!

These guys make great
“stocking stuffers”
and they’re
quickly delivered to your front door!!!

Trust me… You’ll have more time to…

Enjoy Thanksgiving With The Family

Keep Rockin’ and a very Happy Holidays to you and your family from BestBeginnerGuitarLessons.com!

Learn To Play Guitar – 5 Simple Steps To Playing Real Guitar – NO HYPE – Beginners Welcome!

FREE Guitar Lessons >> CLICK HERE

Have you ever wonder what it takes to being able to play real guitar? I’m not talking about struggling to make a chord and then taking a couple of painful seconds to get to the next chord.

I’m talking about that freedom and confidence that when you see somebody who’s got it you can’t help but admired them. Well, I can’t offer you today a proverbial quick fix but there is tried and true path. I’m gonna give you five keys to playing real guitar.

Hello there. My name is Sam Lyons, guitar instructor for over 36 years teaching people of all ages how to play the guitar the right way. How to Play Real Guitar with confidence. I just want to share Five Keys to Becoming the Guitar Player You Want to Be.

When I first started learning guitar like my friends, I wanted to learn some cool songs more to the point, cool licks from songs. I’ve learned over the years that if I learned good basic habits, I can have a lot more fun and play a lot more things on the guitar.

Now there are very important habits to learn early on.

Key #1, The first habit is Basic Technique. These are the things that allow you to move freely and easily around the guitar. Now you need some exercise that works on specific issue that you’re working on and it also allows you to put focused attention on something that you can progress on and get better on.

The second and most important habit is Developing the proper Habit of Practicing. Now, practicing on a regular basis is one of the most important habits to develop to be successful in any skill.

Key #2, Using Your Practice Time Effectively. From what you’ve set up on regular practice routine the next key is to use that time effectively. When I say using effectively, I mean practicing a certain materials that will help you to improve. Not, playing chords, watching TV or just catch playing your favorite song is a lot of fun but it’s not practicing. You need to work on something that’s progressive and that will help you get better. By progressive, I mean the next logical thing that you need to work on to get to where you want to go now this could be an exercise or a song but it’s something that will actually help you get better.

This also means paying attention to what you’re doing. It’s best to set aside some time each day to practice on something in particular attention to the details including things like good hand positions, staying relaxed and getting a good sound.

Key #3, Practice Chord Patterns Not Individual Chords. Knowing to play chords is the most important part of learning to play guitar but don’t spend your time working on just individual chords. Use your valuable practice time to practice chord patterns moving from one chord to another. You see, the key to learning chords is learning to get from one chord to the other. Don’t make the mistake of working on individual chords and then thinking when you’re playing a song and you’ll be able to get there on time. Practice chords patterns, these are sequences of chords and that we call those chord patterns or chord progressions.

There are common chord patterns that are used in many songs. One way to get a lot of bang for your back in your practice is to practice common chord patterns the way you’re learning the chords, you’re learning the chord pattern or progression and you’re also developing your timing.

Key #4, Get an Accurate Roadmap. If you are going on a trip, would it be incredibly valuable to have an accurate map or good set of directions to get to where you’re going? Well, the same things apply when you’re learning to play guitar. Having an accurate map means you know what you should be working on and you have that confidence that you have a path and you know where you’re trying to get to. It will also help you avoid the mistakes of learning things out of order. When you try to make two big leaps, it develops bad habits especially habit of tensing or trying to manipulate your hands in the way that’s not the best way to do it. In the long run, this actually will hold you back. It will also save you a lot of time. You know those who has been famous guitar players who have the reputation for having learned on their own and playing for many, many hours every day but actually having a good teacher or a good learning system will save you an incredible amount of time when you play guitar and a lot of frustration too.

Finally key #5 Persistence Is King. Now, this may sound like over used advice for some of you but I really do believe that being persistent is a critical element to being successful at anything that’s worth doing. I would like to read to you a paragraph that’s been inspiration and encouragement to me over the years written by our 30th President Calvin Coolidge — ” Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.”

Best Acoustic Guitar For Beginners

FREE Guitar Lessons >> CLICK HERE

Hi there, my name is Sam Lyons from BestBeginnerGuitarLessons.com. I received an email recently from a beginner guitarist wanting to purchase an acoustic guitar and asking me for some advice on what she should look for in a guitar.

Athena asked, “I’m looking for a good guitar and I was wondering if you could give me some guidance. I have honestly never played guitar before, but I want to learn and I’ve been doing the research and I’m interested in buying a dreadnought acoustic style guitar. I’m looking for a good beginner guitar that has a little character in it. I’m on a budget and I don’t have a lot of money but I would like to get a good guitar. Thanks for any help you can provide.”

So as you can imagine a lot of money and a good guitar are both very subjective but since she’s a brand new beginner guitarist and she’s asking for help, I’ll give her some suggestions.

She did narrow it down to a dreadnought style guitar so I’ll stick to that and I know she’s a brand new beginner on guitar. I’d suggest something in the price range of 200 to 300 dollars, that’s kinda tricky buying a used guitar.

I’d recommend that if it’s your first guitar, you go to a store or you find a mall that you really like and stick with a brand new guitar with a warranty and from a reputable dealer that if there’s a problem, you have somebody to go back to.

There are some very good places online also to purchase a guitar. I would recommend you check out my BestBeginnerGuitarLessons Online Store for a great selection and low prices.

The acoustic guitars that I think are the best buy for beginners right now are Yamaha, Fender and Takamine. Some other good guitars are Seagull, Alvarez and Ibanez. They make some nice acoustic guitars as well. Right now, I’m really liking that Yamaha FG 730S, the S stands for Solid tap for around 200 to 300 bucks. There’s a lot of quality for the buck and Yamaha is really good and consist in quality.

Be sure to get a case if you can, I don’t like hardshell cases however, they weigh a tun and are bulky. I don’t want to have to carry it around. It’s good protection but I’m not liking them. I recommend one of the Access cases, that’s the brand and the model is either an entry level which are lower price ones or they’re stage 1 which are a little better, pretty good protection and the soft case and very light. They’re fairly inexpensive by the way and I think they have sufficient protection.

Now if you’re going on a airplane, I wouldn’t check it in whether it has a hard case or a soft case. It’s too risky with the way they treat guitars and luggage, I wouldn’t do it. I would take my guitar on the plane and stick it up in the overhead compartment. So far, I’ve always been able to get by doing this.

When you buy an acoustic guitar, make sure the action is reasonable. The action is how
high the strings are off the neck of the guitar. Now if you buy it from a store, try it out or have the salesperson try it out and if it’s a little high, see if they can adjust it and lower the action. Even if it costs a couple of bucks, it’s worth it. It will make it a lot easier to play. I’d stay away from used guitar because there’s a lot of things that you have to look for and unless you’re experienced, you are really taking a big risk.

The other thing is, it is possible to adjust the guitar yourself, but unless you’re really good on mechanical staff and have the know how, I’d stay away from that and I’d let the professionals do it. If you are willing to do it and you are willing to take the risk of actually messing up your guitar then go for it but make sure you do your research on the web first, then make sure you know what you’re doing.

I have a couple extra tips here for you. If the strings hurt your finger, put some lighter strings on the guitar. You can put extra light strings, it’ll be easier on your fingers. Another possibility is something called silk and steel strings. These are strings that are designed to be softer on the fingers. They’re almost in between the steel string and like a nylon string fortunately that do not sound as good as a steel string but it’s a good compromise if you’re learning to play the guitar.

I prefer the regular or medium steel strings on the guitar, they’re ringing and they’re clear. Also, take some lessons either online from a good, organized system or from a reputable, private teacher locally. The beginning is where it’s most important and the beginning habits or whether it works for you or hold you back for a long time.

Well, that’s all for now. I hope that’s been some help to you in what to look for in choosing your guitar. If you like this, check out my website, it’s BestBeginnerGuitarLessons.com. You will find a lot of guitar lessons and tips for beginning guitar players. Well, that’s it for now. Good luck with your guitar playing.
