Would you like to discover the best way to learn guitar? Methods that have been scientifically proven to help you learn and master the guitar faster than ever before.
It’s not easy to pick up the guitar. It takes years to master and a long time to become proficient.
That is why we must all maximize our practice time and take advantage of every possible benefit. There are dozens of scientifically proven ways to learn and master the guitar faster and faster than ever before, but it’s rarely discussed in the music community.
Are you looking for the best way to learn how to play the guitar? We’ll reveal a tried-and-true step routine that gets results in this super-practical tutorial.
SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN METHODS FOR LEARNING THE GUITAR FASTER
As a result, you’ll be able to learn more quickly and effectively, allowing you more time to enjoy playing, jamming, and performing on the guitar.
1) Practice in a suitable learning environment.
The environment in which you practice and study the guitar will have a considerable impact on how quickly you take up the instrument.
Researchers from the University of Washington and the University of California, Berkeley combed through the scientific literature to identify which physical features were most relevant to students in the classroom.
They discovered that there are a number of crucial aspects that make a significant difference.
These are the following:
The importance of light – particularly daylight – cannot be overstated. Make sure you’re learning in a room with plenty of natural light, and leave the curtains and blinds open during the day.
Noise – Surprisingly, stillness is important for concentration. If you live in a noisy household, choose a quieter room, politely urge your family members to hush, or go electric-like Bob Dylan and use headphones. Make every effort to ensure that your practice time is optimal for you.
Temperature – For learning, temperatures of 20°C to 23°C (68°F to 74°F) are excellent. Make sure the room doesn’t grow too hot by keeping an eye on the thermostat or air conditioner. For me, cooler temperatures are better than warmer temperatures, so around 20°C is excellent. When perspiration is streaming into your eyes, it’s tough to concentrate on anything.
The learning environment’s design has an impact as well. It must be well-organized and devoid of clutter. Following your mother’s directions about keeping your room clean may be challenging for some of younger readers, but it will substantially improve your guitar playing!
Plants – Having plants in your learning environment is also beneficial. Plants have been demonstrated to have a calming impact on people of all ages, regardless of whether or not they enjoy plants.
2) Exercise and train on a regular basis.
For both beginners and pros, a lot of guitar playing is about spatial awareness, remembering a lot of information, and being able to think coherently at the moment. There’s good news: a slew of studies demonstrate that exercise can assist with all of the above in significant ways.
It’s a long read, but here’s some scientific proof to back it up.
Have you ever wondered why so many famous guitarists appear to be in good shape?
Well, most of them get a nice exercise up on stage every night. Consider 60-year-old Angus Young, who is still rushing around like a maniac with an ax. Without a doubt, he is performing exceptionally well for his age.
I’m not suggesting you do Angus impersonation at home in your practice room; there would undoubtedly be a few broken windows if you did, but you should start doing some more training.
It’s healthy for your overall health and will help you become a better guitarist.
Also, for most males and females, a guitar plus a terrific body equals sex appeal.
3) Recognize your chronotype and practice in accordance with it.
A person’s proclivity to sleep at a specific moment within a 24-hour period is known as a chronotype. It’s essentially our internal clock. Many people identify as either “night owls” or “early birds.”
In recent years, a number of pieces in the news have claimed that school starts too early and that individuals, particularly young people, learn best later in the morning.
This notion has been debunked by a study from the University of Toronto. The researchers demonstrated how test participants learn better when they are in their own chronotype.
As a result, if a person is a night owl, he or she will study better later in life, and if a person is an early bird, they will learn better in the morning.
Instead of listening to others’ over-generalizations about what and when to practice, customize your practice to your specific needs.
I tell my students that they should practice twice a day, preferably once in the morning and once later in the evening if possible.
For many people, this isn’t practical (unless on weekends or days off), but picking up the guitar before work can be really beneficial, especially if you’re an early riser.
If you can do both early and late practice, that’s fantastic; you can make it even more effective by designating one as a “primary” practice in which you’ll be very focused and the other as a “secondary” practice in which you may be a little more relaxed and fun.
Choose one of your chronotypes and make it your primary practice.
4) Take some time to meditate.
When The Beatles arrived in India, they were already pop superstars. They discovered meditation, Ravi Shankar, and other things while they were there. They returned as pioneering music legends.
The later Beatles material is fantastic in my opinion, and most rock, pop, prog, and indie music we’ve heard afterward wouldn’t sound the same if it weren’t for the Beatles’ journey to India.
They didn’t just discover meditation there; it was also something they used to create greater, deeper, and more spiritual music.
Mediation, in addition to helping you be a better guitarist creatively, will also help you be a better guitarist technically by increasing brain efficiency in an attention activity, such as attention span.
A less evident but equally essential effect is that it lowers anxiety, which is beneficial for any type of performance.
Many students have anxiety when performing on stage, as well as when playing guitar in front of a small group of friends or family members. A little pre-meditation will be beneficial.
It is used by the pros to settle their anxieties and as a tool for creativity.
It’s worth a shot.
5) Take a chewing gum break
You may be surprised to learn that those little breath fresheners might actually aid your guitar playing.
Not only will you have minty-fresh breath to help hide the odor of all that festival beer and wine you may have consumed this summer, but you’ll also be enhancing your guitar skills.
What is the mechanism behind it?
According to a 2009 study published by Baylor College of Medicine, chewing gum has a good influence on academic achievement because it stimulates the brain by boosting blood flow.
Chew some gum when learning something new because we all know how tough it is to process, store, and retrieve new information. Every little bit counts.
Chewing has also been shown to reduce stress, boost alertness, and relieve anxiety, according to studies.
Wow. That’s very great, especially when it comes to better memory.
It could also explain why, when I’ve chewed gum on stage, I’ve felt a little more at ease during performances.
6) Get some rest
Not only is sleep beneficial to our bodies and health in general, but it is also essential for acquiring new skills.
Many academics think that the time saved by getting a good night’s sleep is more than compensated for by the benefits our brain receives in return.
In other words, staying up late at night to acquire extra practice is detrimental if you’re serious about learning/improving your guitar playing quickly.
Instead, practice for ten minutes, intensely focused, and then put the guitar down and get some rest.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, try listening to some soothing ambient music or even the world’s longest song (at the time of writing), according to Guinness World Records.
It’s cool work, but I think I’d get a little tired if I listened to it for an hour and 59 minutes.
Make getting enough sleep a priority.
7) Continue to Achieve
Guitar playing is a lot of fun, and the best way to stay motivated to learn it and master it is to accomplish something every day.
If you don’t maintain your motivation levels high, especially in the beginning stages of playing guitar, you may find yourself, like the runner who abruptly quits returning to old habits of smoking, drinking, and cinnamon swirls, quitting the guitar.
That is something we do not want to happen.
“Why am I doing this?” you might wonder.
When I first started learning guitar, I would buy Total Guitar magazine and start practicing some crazy Paul Gilbert shred lick that I knew I’d never use, but I wasted hours learning it anyhow.
If only I had thought to ask myself, “Why am I studying this?” I would have saved a significant amount of time.
I could have spent that time studying the topics I really cared about. The reasons for picking up the guitar in the first place.
You can develop a personal learning plan using SMART goals as a guide (PLP).
This study from the University of Virginia’s Geisel School of Medicine demonstrates how useful and powerful they can be while learning anything complex.
If it sounds too structured for you (which I strongly encourage you to do), try the following instead.
Instead of learning random songs, prepare a list of ten songs you truly want to learn and rank them from simplest to most challenging.
Learn song 1 first, then song 2, then song 3, and so on.
That way, you’ll learn what YOU want to study rather than what others think you should know.
All of this will keep you engaged and guarantee that your practice time is concentrated rather than haphazard, as it often is when learning something you don’t care about.
8) Take pleasure in the dopamine rush
There have been numerous studies that demonstrate that simply listening to music can help you release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that provides us a great deal of pleasure.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter released in the brain in response to pleasant activity and is associated with reinforcement and motivation – this includes biologically significant activities like eating and sex (just ask Motley Crue about this one).
You can become hooked to playing the guitar (in a positive way), just as many people do to drugs, alcohol, exercise, and junk food.
But, let’s face it, playing the guitar is far healthier than drugs, alcohol, or junk food, and it’s also more enjoyable than exercise, so it’s not such a bad thing to get addicted to.
When you’re out having fun with your spouse and all you can think about is getting back to pick up your tiny 6 string, your partner may become frustrated.
I’ve been there a few times, but nowadays I try to be more present and not think about things that aren’t in front of me at the time. This is a healthier way of life for me.
Socializing, acquiring a new interest, and completing goals are all examples of activities that release dopamine.
Learning to play the guitar combines all of the above unless you are a social recluse or a bedroom player.
The moral of the story is to not learn everything on your own; instead, jam with an instructor, other pals, a band, or other musicians at an open mic.
Also, anytime you’re playing or listening to music, remember to have fun and strive to improve.
All of this leads to increased pleasure, which increases your subconscious drive to improve as a musician.
When you decide to do a guitar cover of “Feeling Good,” you might as well mean it.
9) Take a nap while listening to music
Everyone enjoys taking a nap. Nobody does it better than me when I get the chance.
You can now enjoy a double dose of benefits every time you slumber (which is fantastic for recharging your batteries).
According to research, listening to the music you’re studying while resting will help you recall it better.
Information learned during awake might be revived during sleep, promoting memory stabilization, according to a study from Northwestern University in Illinois.
The individuals learned to play two tunes in time to moving pictures, and the researchers performed one of the melodies in the afternoon while the participants napped.
As long as the music did not interfere with sleep, this increased performance.
This could imply that if you choose to use this approach, you should consider what music you listen to when napping.
Slipknot might not be a good fit, but Simon & Garfunkel might.
In any event, you’ll learn faster if you can sleep while quietly listening to the music you’re learning.
That was, in my opinion, time well spent.
10) Have Yourself Tested
One of the most important advantages of having a skilled, experienced guitar teacher is one that is rarely mentioned.
It’s the fact that they’ll test and evaluate you on a frequent basis. I make it a point to do so on a regular basis, usually in a lighthearted (mainly informal) manner.
It may be done informally, such as asking a pupil to perform a composition, chord progression, or riff, for example.
It may be done in a little more formal manner at times, such as when using my three-month period checklist.
I usually inquire about testing and this particular three-month review procedure, and no one has ever objected, which is fantastic.
It’s really effective since it gives the learner a goal to strive for as well as some immediate motivation. This study demonstrates the need for testing for any learner.
This is one of the reasons why keeping track of your grades is so important.
It’s not so much the content as it is the very formal setting of having to learn all of this stuff and then sit in a room with a stuffy, goateed examiner who is going to assess and mark your guitar playing while you feel your heart beating out of its chest while wishing you could fall into a pit of despair that will quickly supercharge guitar playing.
It’s not quite like that, but graded exams are a bit more formal, and they’re perfect for it.
I only hope that some of the examining bodies were a little more entertaining.
Even RGT, of which I am a member, maybe a touch dry at times, despite their best efforts to make the information more relevant.
If you have the opportunity and desire to work for something, go ahead and start working on your grades; simply choose the most appropriate examining body and go for it.
Remember that it is your drive and inspiration received through the tests that will make you a great player, not the content.
11) Put Yourself to the Test
Unfortunately, the cost of a guitar teacher or paid graded tests is out of reach for most people, but there is another option.
That is to put oneself to the test.
I’ve always enjoyed putting myself to the test as a musician, especially when it comes to things that can be measured.
You should test yourself every day, even if you can and do have a guitar teacher that tests you or if you take graded exams.
There are numerous methods to put oneself to the test.
You can test your ability to play a technique quickly.
For example, take a simple fingerpicking pattern and set a metronome to a comfortable tempo. Play the pattern repeatedly at this tempo, then gradually increase the tempo (approximately 5bpm) until you reach your maximum speed.
Then, in your notebook (yeah, I’m old school), make a page labeled testing, put down your comfortable speed, and then next to it, your maximum speed, with the goal of beating it by little increments (even only 1 or 2bpm) every day.
Apart from speed, repertory is another way to put oneself to the test.
If you can play scales or barre chords, a fun little exercise is to try them out in all 12 keys.
Most guitarists get lazy and adhere to the standard keys of G, D, C, and F for major and Em, Bm, Am, and Dm for the minor.
What about the remaining eight digits?
- Getting a piece of card and dividing it into twelve equal halves is one technique to test your ability to play in all twelve keys.
- Then, in each area, write each of the 12 keys.
- Turn over all twelve portions after cutting them apart.
Simply flip a card over and play that scale, chord, or arpeggio, then flip the card over and pick another to practice anything that is movable or changeable in all keys, such as scales, barre chords, or arpeggios.
Continue until you’ve utilized all twelve cards.
You’ll have played it in all twelve keys by then, and your fretboard knowledge and ability to play that scale, chord, or arpeggio in all keys will have improved dramatically.
When it comes to testing, you may be as rigid as you want with yourself.
My advice is to self-test as much as possible the areas that are measurable — speed, repertory, theory, accuracy, listening skills, and so on.
Self-testing is a broad subject, and I intend to write a blog post about it in the near future.
For now, stick to the ideas outlined above and see what more you can self-test.
According to this research, both getting evaluated as mentioned above and testing yourself have a positive impact on your guitar playing in different ways.
12) Make use of a wide range of media.
Whenever you learn anything new, write it down, repeat it, play it, and sing it. Memory is best achieved through both aural and visual modalities.
To put it another way, you should be able to apply what you’ve learned to a variety of situations.
This research, along with a host of others, shows that this is a highly successful approach to retaining and recalling any information.
For us guitarists, simply writing it down, repeating it, playing it, and singing it out loud all help it sink in.
Take out your notepad, write the song title at the top, and quickly copy all of the chords in the correct order if you’re learning a song and know how to play it but can’t remember the chord sequence.
It will help you remember it the next time you play it, allowing you to go on to something else or simply enjoy it more.
I usually ask students to bring a smartphone and a notebook to every lesson when I teach in person.
This way, anytime they learn anything new, they may record me doing it and write it down in any way that helps or that I think will help them remember it.
We do both because some things, such as strum patterns, function better when they are filmed.
This is due to the fact that reading rhythms is more difficult than hearing them.
Other things, such as fretboard or theory-related tasks, benefit from having them written down.
For example, if I’m teaching a student about the structure of a song, it’s more helpful for them to see it written down in a “verse, chorus, verse” style structure than it is for them to watch the entire video over and over.
It would take minutes for them to watch the video, yet it takes seconds for them to look at a simple note.
This is why I create eBook supplements to go along with my e-Courses’ videos and audio. They are far more powerful as a result of having both.
13) Make use of mnemonics If at all possible,
Writers like Tim Ferriss have taught me a lot about learning and how to improve one’s ability to learn and recall information more quickly and efficiently.
It’s a good idea to utilize mnemonics anytime you learn anything new to help you remember it fast.
I always teach new pupils a simple mnemonic to remember the tuning of a guitar’s open strings.
This is how it goes:
It takes around 10 seconds for a learner to understand that.
Then, to remember the open strings, all they have to do is take the first letter of each word: E, A, D, G, B, E, and that will give you the names of the open strings in a quick, fun, and hilarious way.
Tip: It’s generally the case that the sillier the better. It would take significantly more concentration and effort for the student to remember what the open strings are tuned to if he didn’t have that mnemonic.
Big Cats Eat Fish is another simple mnemonic.
This is used to aid in remembering which notes do not have sharps or flats between them.
“Every note has a sharp or flat between them, with the exception of Big Cats, which is B and C,” I’ll say.
Eat fish that contain E and F.
The notes are A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#
Use humorous mnemonics to remember all you can, and you’ll discover that the knowledge you’re learning sinks in quickly and can be recalled with significantly less effort than it would otherwise.
Even if you don’t use the mnemonic, you’ll find that it comes back to you quickly, even if you forget about it for months. Most guitarists would struggle to recall it without the mnemonic.
14) Have a great time and a lot of laughs.
Learning should be enjoyable because life is amusing.
Many people place an excessive amount of value on their education.
They’ve gotten to the point where they’re detracting from the pleasure of studying.
Instead of relaxing and enjoying themselves when they realize they are serious about playing the guitar, they tell themselves, “It’s fine; I’m still learning.” When I can truly play, I’ll have more fun.” By then, it’s usually too late.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to break the monotony of solemnity.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Begin to make sure that every time you play, you not only accomplish something but that you also have fun and laugh a lot.
Don’t be like this guy if you make a mistake; instead, laugh about it.
There is much evidence that comedy aids with creative problem solving, which is wonderful for guitarists. With everything complicated, and especially with learning the guitar, a large part of the learning process entails:
- Performing admirably
- When an issue emerges, you run into a brick wall.
- Becoming aware of the issue
- Developing novel approaches to the problem
Using humor to overcome these issues will be really beneficial to you.
It might be a difficulty with a chord not sounding quite right, deciding which chord should come next in a song you’re writing, or learning how to perform a technique better.
No matter what the issue is, use laughter to solve it.
I constantly encourage students to be the greatest guitarist they can be, but I enjoy being able to break up their lessons with a quick anecdote, tale, or joke to divert their attention away from what they’re learning for a few moments.
If students are having trouble grasping a new subject, I find that this method works well.
Instead of pounding things into them, I attempt to make them laugh and take their attention away from what they’re doing for a few moments.
This works as a “reset” button, allowing individuals to return to the learning process.
After a little lighthearted laughter, I find that they usually pick up on what we’re doing in less time and with less tension.
If you’re having trouble with something, try to laugh about it or recall a humorous tale.
You’d have to be fairly serious not to see the amusing side of these guys, even if you don’t like their melodies if it helps you master some Tenacious D guitar parts.
If you’re having trouble with your guitar, put it down for a while and watch some Spinal Tap, School of Rock, Wayne’s World, or any other classic comedy with guitars.

DEVELOP YOUR HEARING SKILLS: BEST WAY TO LEARN GUITAR
It’s critical to improve both your overall musical sensibility and your guitar talents.
Listening to a wide range of music is a great approach to expand your musical horizons and learn more about it.
Having a good ear will become just as vital as having good fingers in the future!
It takes more than shredding and playing all the notes to be a good guitarist. You must develop into a conscientious musician.
You’ll need to practice tunes over and over as you learn to play guitar. This can be exhausting, but it is the only way to learn. Training your ear to recognize tunes faster is a wonderful approach to increase the efficiency of your practice.
A proficient musician can discern a piece of music’s key and rhythm. For a newbie, this will be difficult.
Active listening, on the other hand, will become second nature if you practice it.
As a result, strengthening your ear requires a lot of listening to music. Learning a simple lick is an excellent example of a natural method for training your ear.
If you want to learn a lick, you’ll have to play it over and over.
When it comes to ear training, repetition is crucial.
After listening to a song multiple times, you’ll get a sense of the key, tempo, pitch, and dynamics.
Everything you’ve learned thus far will help you master your instrument.
This usually comprises playing the same 5-second sample of a song or piece of music over and over again.
This is, however, the best way to become acquainted with the complexities you’ll need to master as a guitarist.
The development of your ear is one of the most significant basic guitar exercises.
If you want to learn guitar in 30 days, you’ll need to spend time listening to music and practicing your guitar skills. In the long run, this type of practice will pay off and make you a more delightful musician to play with.
READ, READ, READ, AND THEN READ SOME MORE.
There is a wealth of information available for those who are just learning to play the guitar.
A trained pilot does not begin flying his or her plane without a great deal of preparation, study, and reading. To become a proficient pilot, you must practice flying, examine aircraft models, and read about all of the possible scenarios that could occur while in the air. Similarly, the quickest approach to learn guitar is to devote a significant amount of time to learning, reading, and studying. This will not only help you learn the guitar faster, but it will also make the time you spend practicing more meaningful.
Reading about the guitar is also a terrific approach to get more acquainted with the instrument. It’s a good approach to ensure that as a guitarist, you have a firm foundation of knowledge.
Learn about the history of the guitar, famous guitarists, and how the guitar fits into many genres.
It helps to have some context information if you are truly interested in learning on your own.
Reading can be a good method to break up the monotony of practice as well.
If you practice for a couple of hours a day, reading in between will provide you a much-needed rest while also cementing your knowledge.
You can read a wide range of literature regarding the guitar.
You might only want to learn how to play a few songs at first. From there, you can expand your reading to include various areas of the guitar and music in general.
As you progress in your guitar studies, you may wish to study more about the history of stringed instruments in general. Without a question, one of the most effective strategies to improve your guitar skills is to read everything you can about the instrument.
CREATE YOUR OWN GUITAR LESSON SCHEDULE.
When learning an instrument, it’s easy to become complacent.
Once you’ve mastered a few chords and licks on the guitar, you’ll feel at ease playing them and won’t be compelled to try more difficult things.
Designing your lessons in advance is the best approach to avoid complacency and learn quickly. You should have some specific techniques or songs in mind that you wish to learn.
Creating a structure and routine is the simplest method to learn guitar.
Make an effort to incorporate discipline into your routine.
Design your classes, for example, such that you may learn quickly and effectively.
You should also be learning how to be a good musician while honing your guitar talents. Training your ear by regularly listening to a wide variety of music is an excellent method to improve your guitar playing.
PLAY FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS
It’s more than just showing off when you play music for other people. Music has the ability to communicate with people from all walks of life.
Practicing your guitar abilities with your friends and family is a terrific approach to improve your guitar talents.
Playing songs and pieces in front of an audience is an excellent approach to gain confidence with the guitar. Even for a beginner, it’s critical to understand how your playing affects others.
You may become dissatisfied and even disillusioned if you practice alone all of the time. For both you and the listener, playing guitar for others can be inspiring.
You will improve as a result of the feedback you receive.
It makes no difference if the people you’re with are musicians. They should be able to provide you with comments if they appreciate listening to music.
If you want to learn how to play the guitar, you must be able to respond to feedback.
You can attempt playing a piece of music for your family or friends once you think you’ve nailed it on your guitar.
It doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. Small efforts like this will make performing in front of an audience easier in the future.
If you want to learn how to play the guitar, performing for others is a terrific place to start.
LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE GUITAR THE RIGHT WAY.
We’ve already spoken about how important it is to learn how to play the guitar and how important it is to train your ear. Furthermore, the ideal way to learn guitar online is to start with the fundamentals.
Here’s an excellent example. Assume you’ve decided to take up rock climbing as a pastime. You opt to buy all of the necessary gear and teach yourself instead of learning good skills from tutorials, other rock climbers, or climbing lessons. You would not only be unfamiliar with basic rock climbing skills, but you would also be putting your life in jeopardy.
Make sure you’re using the right fingering method. Playing the guitar requires good technique. You could discover that there is a simpler way to play a chord on occasion. To actually become a proficient musician, avoid falling into this trap; you must educate yourself on precise fingering techniques.
Make use of a metronome. Being a competent musician necessitates a strong sense of rhythm. You can get a head start on picking up the rhythm by using a metronome.
Learning to play the guitar is a rewarding skill to acquire; nevertheless, mastering the instrument takes time and work. The ideal way to learn guitar online is to combine the above proper technique with online learning.
