      Anindya bose is one of the finest musician i have met in the town not only in terms of musical technicality but also as a human being. It was an honour to work with him where he recorded mixed and mastered our own composition. His guitar playing skills as well as arrangements are absolutely brilliant. He is among those very few left hand guitar players in the town. I would say every musician should atleast work once with another musician like this \m/

Hiring Guide

  • Two Types of Guitars – Acoustic and Electric are two types of guitars. As then name suggests, acoustic guitar is non-electrical, while electric guitar has its sound amplified and boosted. Soft country music sounds good on an acoustic guitar, and heavy metal and rock music is what electric guitar is used for. It depends on which one you prefer to learn. However, if you are not sure about it, an acoustic guitar can be a good choice for beginners.

  • The Brand and Price – As everyone knows a well-known guitar brand is going to be expensive as compared to a normal brand. Electric guitars are way more expensive than acoustic guitars. While in the case of acoustic guitars, a Les Paul Standard guitar starts at Rs. 40,000, and a normal unbranded guitar cost starts at Rs. 2,500. As you are just starting to learn to play a guitar, it is best to go for an affordable guitar, and buy an expensive one when one has mastered the art of playing a guitar. The sound quality of an expensive guitar is better than a low-priced guitar but the point is to learn how to play first.

  • Guitar Specifications - A guitar for a 10-year- old varies from a guitar for an adult person. Also, a guitar can be left-handed or right-handed. The length could also vary. So, try holding a few guitars and see which one feels most comfortable to hold. As playing guitar will require you to control the strings, you should be able to move your fingers with ease. Furthermore, even the low-priced guitars have variation in sound quality. If you do not want to take the risk of buying a guitar on your own, once you hire a guitar teacher, you can ask them to accompany you to the guitar store to help you by one or they could recommend you a guitar that is good for you and the shop where you can buy it from.

  • Guitar Accessories – Along with the guitar, you will need some additional accessories to ease playing the guitar. These are - Picks, they are small and easily misplaced so buy more than one at a time - Guitar tuner - Spare strings - Cleaning cloth or spray - Strand - Capo (not necessarily required essentially) - Amplifier (if you decide to opt for an electric guitar and electric guitar lessons)

Practice makes perfect, but a teacher cannot be there with you every day and every free hour, so it is best to practice on your own as well in your free time. Although, you will be provided guitar playing notes by your guitar teacher, certain other sources can prove equally beneficial to learn to play a guitar sooner. Some of these resources to learn to play a guitar are –

  • Mobile Application To Learn To Play Guitar. Thanks to the smart phone, you can easily download a free mobile application to teach you how to play a guitar. Mobile apps are highly convenient as most of them can be accessed offline as well (no internet), you can go through the tutorials, and play in your mind while you are in the metro or cab, or any other place where you cannot carry your guitar or access internet.

  • Books or E-Books, some people still prefer books to learn, and it could actually prove useful. Since books have been the oldest method of learning, there are several books to learn how to play a guitar. These are detailed, and well-explained. Now that there are several other sources of learning, guitar tutorial books may be available at low rates. If a certain book is expensive, you can always find an electronic version of the book online, which you can save as PDF, and print out, if required.

Before, you begin your guitar learning lessons, it is important to have a guitar. After all, how can you learn without having the proper instrument, and learning material. If you are about to start learning how to play a guitar, chances are you do not have much idea about what to look for when buying a guitar. That being said, if you have a friend or family member, who is good at playing guitar, they could guide you with buying a guitar. However, if you have nobody to guide you, you can feel stuck. Therefore, here is a guide on buying a guitar.

Almost every teenage boy, and some girls have been attracted to learn how to play a guitar in their teenage days. The fact that carrying, and maintaining a guitar is highly convenient, easy to learn and it is inexpensive when compared to other musical instruments, makes it the preferred musical instrument to learn and play by many people.

However, the person should remember that ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’, so you cannot learn how to play a guitar in a day. In fact, the first few days go in understanding the various part of the instrument, the notes, etc. Here a few basic points that beginners should be aware of to ease the guitar learning process. These are the basics that will make learning to play guitar, a smooth process.

Learn the anatomy of a guitar

Before learning anything, you have to learn to identify the various parts and terminology used while playing guitar. As a child, you are informed about your hands, legs, knees, etc., similarly when it comes to the guitar, you need to know what is a bridge, or a headstock, etc.? Take your time to identify the parts of a guitar.

Art of Holding A Guitar

The second thing you need to learn is to how to hold a guitar. As lefties would hold it different from right-handers. For example, left-handed people will need to reverse the strings entirely or flip the guitar to make it convenient for them to play the guitar smoothly. Take you time to find your comfortable way of holding the guitar. This is important as you need to learn how to position both your hands on the neck and sound-hole in a way that you are comfortable moving your fingers up and down, right and left of the guitar, and also able to obtain the best possible sound out of your guitar.

Tuning a Guitar

This may take some time to understand, but it critical to being a guitar professional. You should be able to tune an out-of- tune guitar along with knowing the chords. Invest in a tuner or you can use the free guitar tuners available online.

Restringing a Guitar

As you continue to play, the guitar strings will tend to get old, and lose their shine. After a while, you will need to replace those strings with new strings. In this case, you should be able to identify when the strings need replacement, i.e. check for discolouration, flat tune, difficulty in tuning, etc. and how to restring your guitar. Ask your guitar teacher to explain how to know which strings are best for your guitar, playing styles, and how to restring the guitar correctly.

Holding a Pick

The ‘pick’ is a small triangular piece of plastic, with which guitar strings are played. It is inexpensive and easily misplaced, so keep at least 2-3 or more picks with you. Although, you can play with your fingers, but a pick is thin making it easier to play the correct string. Commonly, the pick should be placed between the tip of the index finger and thumb. However, as you continue to play, you will find your own comfortable way of holding it.

Reading Tabs & Chords

Reading tabs and chords are actually very simple. Tabs and chords is a diagrammatical representation of which strings to press, and with which fingers. Once you master the art of reading chords and tabs, playing simple songs should be come easy. You can then gradually move on to tough songs.

Playing Open Instruments

Open chords are chords where all the strings are not pressed down. It is one of the first skills a guitarist acquires when learning how to play guitar. For example, start with a very basic open chord, like G. Then, strum the guitar to make sure you hear a clear chord. Once you have mastered a single open chord, learn a second open chord. Then, practice transitioning between the two chords.

YouTube is the ultimate place to learn to play guitar online. The main advantage of Youtube is the ability to access national and international guitar players. Some of them are great guitar teachers. You can access tips and tricks provided by professional guitar players, and receive words of encouragement and wisdom from other people who have recently started learning to play a guitar. There are many guitar training and learning videos on Youtube as well. You can play along with Youtubers to improvise on your guitar playing skills.

Everything requires practice, the more you practice, the better you will get at playing guitar. Being aware of how to take care of your guitar, restringing, cleaning, etc. can help your guitar last for years.

That being said, for some individuals, it is not about the budget but they want a good teacher, who can guide them through the entire process, while some people have a plan and need a guitar teacher to teach them the basics while continuing to learn and improvise through other mediums such as guitar learning mobile applications, Youtube, etc.
