  • Hi GMC!

    In this lesson we are going to take a look at basics of holding a guitar in a sitting and standing positions. Lesson also covers how to connect a guitar to an amplifier in order to get sound out of an electric guitar. We'll also check out how amps work and how to set the basic tone on your amplifier.

    You should always strive to practice in a comfortable sitting or standing position. There should be no tension in your muscles and body when playing and being able to relax with guitar in your hands will mean a lot in terms of your overall performance on the instrument. This is why pros make it "look so easy", it's because they are relaxed when performing.

    Let's go through the basics together, I'd like to invite you to post any feedback or questions about the lesson material you might have. You can do it via lesson feedback section (check upper right corner), by sending me a private message via forum or sending me an email straight to: [email protected]
