How to start playing guitar to make it hobby

Well initially everything starts with the infrastructure. So you need to have a guitar at first. Before buying the guitar you to understand the fact that you need to give lot of time at initial stages to learn guitar and secondly there is not hard and fast rule to learn guitar. Initially you will find yourself helpless to play guitar because your fingers will not move on strings but after 10 days you will see that your fingers are moving automatically. Initially your hands will hurt you while pressing the metal strings but after sometime they will become hard and won't hurt anymore.
Whatever I said was experience and actually I thought I should give my hobby of playing guitar but somehow I stuck to daily practice. Now I am quite good in playing guitar. So playing guitar is a nice hobby but you need patience for playing guitar. You can learn to play guitar of your own but problem is that you will not be able to understand the basics of guitar clearly. Although there are so many sites available on the net but all of them offers the paid services. So it is better to hire a guitar teacher and learn the guitar with concepts.

Introduction to guitar

Here in this article I will tell you something about guitar. Guitars are mainly of three types which are namely:
1)Acoustic guitar
2)Semi-electric guitar
3)Fully electric
Songs are played on strings which are six in numbers and have different thickness, which produces different sound. There are 15 frets in a guitar. Frets are vertical separation in guitar which is designed to make specific sound. You play guitar with a plastic pick having flexible shape. Below are some of the images of the guitar.
Songs are played on two ways which are chords of guitar and tabs of guitar. Chords are the music format which is used to pay the whole song and tabs are used to play the tune of the song. Tabs are used initially when the songs start but after that we use chords which are set of some strings which are played together.

Benefits of playing guitar

Although this looks little weird to make benefits from your hobby but I experienced some of them when I started playing guitar. Firstly the major difference or you can say the major benefit which I got when I stated playing guitar was that, it increased my temperament level. Earlier I used to get frustrated a lot but slowly I become little soft from my head. Probably the scientific reason for this is that guitar teaches us patience.
Second benefit which I experience was that guitar is a stress buster. Yes when you are in tension, just pick the guitar and play it. You will surely get out of your stress quickly. It is proved that musical instrument which sounds good tends to heal your stress and your soul, if you are suffering for any thought related diseases. Guitar tends to make your personality better and you get social acclaim. When you perform in front of crowd you tend to get the social acclaim. Another important benefit which you get from playing guitar is that your confidence tends to build and that tends to help in whole of your life. Apart from all of these you feel good inside yourself that yes you are doing something good and it will surely improve your confidence level.

Disadvantages of playing guitar

Yes you read it right that there are some of the disadvantages of playing guitar. Well it is not because you are giving your time to something which is not so regular. There is no problem with playing guitar but after the advent of electric guitar things have changed a lot. Acoustic guitar are very promising in all aspects of advantages but electric guitar are having some disadvantages which are as following:
1)Electric guitar sound which is high in frequency tends put pressure on your ear and off course the brain.
2)Person playing too hard electric guitar tends to develop irritating behavior sometimes.
3)It also affects your heart when you play heavy electric guitars.
But in my opinion there is no need to worry because we (common guitarist) never play a strong guitar. Hence we are not under the radar of these disadvantages.

How much time it takes to learn guitar

Well this question is very common when you talk about playing guitar. If you are seriously doing practice 1 hour everyday then surely you will we playing a good guitar after one year. In initial stages you will find difficult to get out a song. When I started playing guitar it took around 20 days to me to play a song but after that time decreased considerably. First you will be playing guitar on acoustic guitar. So it will take time to play the electric guitar. If you are very fast learner then you can play a decent guitar in 6 months.

Final words on playing guitar

Playing guitar is a good hobby and but it needs lot of practice and dedication. It will improve your personality but you have to give pain to your fingers. Surely it will heal your body but you have to hurt your body to play initially. So make guitar as your hobby and enjoy it playing. Do regular practice and make a time table to start the practice on regular basis.
