As you learn more and more about playing guitar, you are sure to improve as a player. Below is a compilation to tips that can help you achieve your goals.

Learn what the basics are. Everyone walks before they learn to run. While it is tempting to start learning your favorite songs right away, it is important to learn the foundations first.

The tips above can be very valuable, but only if you put them to use. Knowledge is good, but practice is better. Just follow these tips every time you practice and you are sure to see great improvement.
