Guitar Lessons: Beginner

Simple method for improving you chord changes on guitar.




Do you have or know of any tricks for improving the way you strum or change chords?

The most important aspect of changing chords is to make certain the each chord shape comes down in one single movement (not many small moments e.g., 1 st finger then 2nd finger then 3rd finger etc) all fingers need to come down as if they were a rubber stamp.

I also recommend practicing with a metronome, this will give you a 

a defined tempo reference point to help track your progress. A good idea is to create a metronome log sheet where you document your daily chord practice sessions, simply mark down the date and chord progression you are currently working on. Over a period of three months you will notice a significant improvement in your chord changes

Start with a tempo of 60 and gradually increase the tempo over a number of weeks, remember the name of the game is precision, don't set your metronome and try and keep up with the tempo, rather use the metronome to keep a record of your progress.

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:


As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. It’s a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
