Have you pictured yourself with your fingers flying over the strings and playing the kind of music that you love?

No matter your age or skill level, you can learn the electric guitar and practice to perfect your skills.
Get The Most Out Of Your Electric Guitar Lessons
You may not become Kirk Hammett or Eric Clapton overnight. But if you have a passionate desire to master the instrument, you will go a long way towards playing the kind of music you want to play. The best way to get started is to get solid and planned guitar lessons which are available to you in Lincoln today.
There are too many beginners who spend several months battling it out with the many free guitar lessons available online. I have seen many talented young learners waste the precious months when they could have been dramatically improving their skills, flailing about instead in the haphazard, all-over-the-place free lessons that often teach you how to run before you walk. If you want to truly master the electric guitar, in as short a time as possible, the best way to start off on the right foot is with planned lessons.
I offer lessons that are planned, disciplined, effective and, most importantly, fun! You cannot learn any instrument if you are not motivated to keep playing by having some fun from time to time, even while you master the techniques. The lessons I offer are easy to follow. Go from learning the basics of your guitar, fingerings, riffs etc. to hard core shredding, depending on the kind of music you want to play.
You Will Learn Everything And Get Results Fast
You’ll start by learning about the parts of your guitar, how to tune it, how it works etc. Then move on to the basic chords, and find out tips on how many strings you should be playing for each chord. Learn how to hold the pick properly. By this time you should know your instrument well, and be ready to make music. Then you’ll be learning about the shortcut positions for chords and how to play some of them more cleanly. There is a lot to learn about chords and how to play them. Learn about power chords and when or how to use them. Learn about partial barre chords, some basic shuffles etc.
When you can play the chords, you’re ready to pick up various picking styles. With the slide guitar technique, you can play some of the songs that Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Mick Jagger, David Gilmour and George Harrison used the slide guitars on, as well as music by the Jack White, Ben Harper and others. With pull-offs and hammer-ons, you pick once and get two notes out of your play. Learn to weave in these techniques into the songs that you play, and you’ll be thrilled with the variety of musical styles you can get out of your electric guitar.
Learn new riffs from time to time while you practice techniques, so that you won’t get bored and stay motivated throughout your learning period. Within a short time you can begin to play your favorite songs. Eventually you can go on to learn the more advanced techniques that you’ve heard the masters use. Find out how to tune down like Jimi Hendrix or try out the powerful, dynamic and intense shuffle licks that Stevie Ray Vaughan used. Learn the precision of Eddie Van Halen’s style or Jeff Beck’s virtuoso style. Whether you want to belt out squealing electric workouts like Neil Young or create complex and expressive, emotive sounds that you’ll find in some of Nick Drake’s songs featuring the electric guitar, you’ll soon find yourself on your way to learning how to.
With a little disciplined training, playing the electric guitar can become the most natural thing in the world for you, and the most enjoyable!
Why Take Electric Guitar Lessons in Lincoln?
The electric guitar is somewhat easier to learn than the acoustic, as long as it has been properly adjusted. It has a slimmer neck and a smaller body. It also uses strings of a lighter gauge than an electric, so your fingers or pick can slide over them like dancers on ice. The guitar needs to be plugged into an amplifier with a lead. But this little extra effort of having to turn on the amps whenever you want to play is made up for by the rock and metal style music that you can play on it.
The electric guitar uses pickups to produce sound with the help of magnetic interactions. The strings are closer to the frets than in an acoustic guitar. You don’t need to press the strings as hard, and the guitar is easier to set up. At the same time, there are different features and knobs that could take a longer time to learn. Whether you are a beginner, an amateur who has been taking those free online lessons for some time, an experienced musician looking to learn a new type of instrument, or someone who wants a boost to their skills and take it to the next level, electric guitar lessons will offer you challenges and sweet rewards.
