Beginner Guide
---------------------------------------------------------



1)
Beginner Kick-Off
David's Chord Lessons
To get started you need some basic things, they an be found in the beginner Kick-Off. There we find a bit of theory, a bit on chords, a bit on solo's...just a bit of everything biggrin.gif . This is very usefull because you'll need it all to get a strong basis Later on you can orientate on smaller parts, but now it's usefull to start wide. David's chord lessons will give you a basis on chords. You can mix these lessons, but it's very handy to learn how to do barre chords before you start on david's lessons. For me doing David's lessons wasn't needed, I knew enough chords after some years of playing. You don't need to learn all his lessons by hard, pick one out and start trying it. Don't get frustrated with the barre and F chord tongue.gif

2)
Frusciante Style
Frusciante Style 2
Mixolydian Beginner
Get that shuffle!
Tapping 1
Metronome lesson
These lessons will keep you motivated and learn you some more basics. If a lesson has a fast run, just skip it. For now that's cool. The frusciante styl lessons realy got me, I loved them! Of course also because I'm a RHCP fan but still...They can realy help you. The mixolydian was a nice one to start with, but don't do the whole song if you find it to hard after a while. The shuffle lesson is a nice one to keep motivated, especialy the start is easy. The tapping lesson is a nice one to keep your basis wide, and also to let your family go "Aaaaah...." and your friends will say "How long have you been playing?". Metronome knowledge comes in very very handy after a while. It's good to practice with a metronome and this lesson shows you how. But anothing important thing is that this lessons teaches some theory on triplets and 32th notes (don't know what I'm talking about? Go to the lesson biggrin.gif )

3)
These are examples of what you can play after you know the basics! Here the techniques work together and create something. The Jazz workshop uses chords you have learned with OToole's lessons, the metal lesson contains about everything you've learned biggrin.gif , the blues licks contains some techniques learned from the mixolydian lesson like pull-offs and the simple melodies 2 lesson shows you how you, with your low level, can still make something beatiful

I hope this has helped anyone, good luck with it!!

Greetz, Kaz

Excellent Kaznie - I really like how you specify that not all parts of a lesson is at beginner level. I think understanding how to pick segemnts of lessons is crucial to make a good personal lesson plan.

When I started learning I wanted to be able to play MacAlpine stuff (as an example) - but I only had the technique to play 5% of his stuff - so naturally I went for those specific 5% (basically the melodies that contained little or no shred).

Great work kaznie. Good list for a beginning guitarist smile.gif It's always a struggle starting out on guitar but then you get up some momentum and fly for a while. Before crashing down into a pit of despair and clambering to the top to find a pub. biggrin.gif

Tapping


1)
Kris- Tapping Basics and Beyond
Kris- Tapping Randy Rhoads Style
Kris- Two handed tapping
Kris- More Two hand tapping
Before i came to GMC i only knew alternate picking and legato techniques, but when i came here and saw all these new techniques i never heard of i before and decided to watch videos of them. When i saw the tapping lessons i knew i had to learn this technique because it sounds cool and looks cool. So i found the most basic tapping lesson on the site to start with which is the first lesson i listed. These lessons give you the basic understanding of the technique, how to play it, and examples to get you started. After you can get the first lesson down you can move on to the next lesson and so on.

After those lessons you can try these.
Jeff- Melodic Tapping
David- Classical Taps


2)
Gabriel- Tapping
Trond- Rythmic Tapping
David- Tapping Licks without picks
Juan- Tapping
Muris- Tapping
Muris- EVH style
Now that you can play tapping at a beginner level (well if not dont go on until you can) you are going to want to get your chops goods. So now you need to practice excercises. Above i listed the lessons i learned to get my tapping very good. When working up the speed you should practice with the metronome!

3)
Pavel- Slow solo
Juan- Shred Tapping
David- Metalhead
Kris- GMC intro
These lessons are for practicing songs (you could say) with tapping in them. It is good to intergrate it into your playing instead of just playing only tapping. If you mix different techniques you can get an interesting solo.


Extra: After you learn these you can try a little different version of tapping called touch technique, its very a like but you play a backing with your left hand and tap a melody with your right hand. Here are some lessons related to it.
Juan- Touch Technique
Juan- Touch Technique Sus2 Apreggios
Juan- Touch Technique Right Hand
Juan- Polyphonic Tapping


Note: I did not include every tapping lesson on the site. If you want to learn more you can do so. Its about how good you want to be at the technique

Nice one Nick, I liked your choice of lessons as well as your explanations! I suck at tapping so I think I'll be refering to your lesson plan quite alot. smile.gif

Just as a reminder to everyone, don't worry about doubling up on topics, even if the lessons you chose are the similar to what someone has done before, as long as your pointers, and explanations are different it will be a big help! smile.gif

thanks RIP, great idea. As a new member, I'm sure I'll benefit from these lesson plans. Also, I've been trying to coordinate the video lessons at the same time as learning Andrew's excellent theory lessons. For example, the first few topics in the theory lesson plan contain the major/minor pentatonic scales. So after reading that I try to learn some lessons that use the pentatonic scales. This helps me solidify my understanding of the theory behind the playing. And if the pent. lesson contains some advanced techniques such as tapping or sweeping, I try to learn some intro lessons on those topics too.

GMC is great! smile.gif
