Acoustic guitar – proper Techniques and Repertoire

Are you a fan of acoustic guitar? Perhaps this is the most universally loved musical instrument and the first you think of when it comes to parties or bonfires on the beach. With just six strings, a wooden sound box and a fretboard put in your hands an entire repertoire of beautiful songs to play and sing with your friends. Acoustic Guitar Techniques and Repertoire.

Here at Guitar Lessons London you can learn how to properly play classical guitar and discover the best techniques to improve your music skills. Our teacher James will be happy to reveal you all the secrets behind this fantastic musical instrument and help you become a good musician.

Like anything else, playing guitar requires dedication and perseverance. Anyway, our lessons are perfectly conceived to make you learn while having fun, so don’t worry of being judged!

Are you curious to know everything about acoustic guitar?Here are a few examples of the playing techniquesyou can learn at Guitar Lessons London:

Acoustic Guitar Techniques

1) Don’t grasp the guitar handle!

If you are a complete beginner, you will discover soon that pressing guitar strings can make your fingers hurt a little. To avoid this you will probably have the tendency to hold the guitar handle with all the hand, putting your thumb around it to be more comfortable.

Well, sorry for your fingers but… this is not the correct position! Our teacher will explain you that the correct position of the hand is with your thumb behind tha handle, so you can press the strings only with your fingertips. Yes, it hurts at the beginning, but it’s totally worth it!

2) Fingerstyle melodies, arpeggios…

As you progress with your lessons, you will learn that there are a lot of different ways of playing guitar and each one produces a different sound effect.

James will show you how to do properly fingerstyle by pinching strings without a plectrum. Also, he will explain you the meaning of terms that may sound to you weird at the beginning, such as “triads”, “arpeggio”…

3) Last but not least, be patient!

It is comprehensible that you look forward to play your favourite song and that some basic chords may seem boring, but don’t hurry: progress will come quickly and you’ll be able to perform in front of your friends and show everyone what you’ve learned.

Classical guitar repertoire

Speaking about songs, which are the best pieces to play? Well, classical guitar repertoire is so large that you’re spoilt for choice! It covers a lot of music genresand ranges from rock music, folk, oldies and much more.

Just to mention some titles:

  • Hotel California (Eagles)
  • Sound of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel)
  • Blowin’ in the Wind (Bob Dylan)
  • Smells like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
  • American Pie (Don McLean)

Whathever music genre you like, you can certainly find something beautiful to play for your own pleasure and the one of those who are listening to you.
