Guitar Lessons | Basic Chord Chart for Beginners

Guitar Lessons - Learn how to play major chords on your guitar.

Hi! Today I want to introduce to you some basic guitar chords that you should prepare to practice. I have created a Guitar Chord Chart for you. You can print it or save it to your computer for easy access.

The chord chart below shows the basic representation of all the major chords that can be played on the guitar. As you can see there are only twelve major scales in music and so all the major chords on the chart below are named based on the major scale they are constructed from.

Here is a basic illustration outlining the twelve major scales in music.

Now here is the chord chart with the twelve major chords that you should practice. 
I must say that it will not be an easy task practicing all the chords on the guitar chord chart above. So my advice to you is to practice them one chord at a time. Of course your fingers are going to hurt from time to time but if you keep practicing the pain will automatically go away.

Please remember to leave your comments!!

Free Piano Lessons for All

Free Piano Lessons for All

 Are you still searching for free piano lessons online? Have you lost confidence in some of the information sites that are dedicated to teach you to play the piano for free?

Well, a number of individuals are still not convinced that they can learn to play the piano up to professional level from the numerous lessons that are offered for free on the internet. I know that there a number of websites that are offering free piano tutorials to individuals who are interested. But I must say that you will have to spend some quality time searching the internet for these websites.

Apart from this blog site, there are a number of sites on the internet with quality information that you can take advantage of. Below is a list of websites that you can go to, but please be prepared to spend some time on these sites. All these sites offer some if not all their lessons for free.

 Websites for Beginners

 For individuals who are searching for free piano lessons they can go to;

1) www.choose-piano-lessons.com- This website offers quality content for persons who are just learning to play the piano and is designed to teach you the basics in an effective way. This website has a lot of illustrations that will help you understand the information clearer.

2) www.zebrakeys.com – This website has become very popular over the past two years. It offers a number of piano tutorials for free at the beginner and intermediate level. There are a lot of graphic illustrations and videos on this website.

3) www.pianolessons.com – This website has a lot of free piano lessons presented in video formats. You can even sign up for free instant lessons which will be mailed to you on a daily or weekly basis.

What about www.youtube.com? – YouTube is a great resource centre for all individuals searching for free piano lessons online. There are a lot of musicians especially pianist who have created several videos for persons who interested in learning the piano. Some of the lessons are broken down into easy steps so as to create a reasonable pace for individuals who are watching. The beauty about youtube.com is that the videos can be downloaded once you have access to the internet.

Learning to play the piano for free is not a bad idea, and I do not wish to discourage you from wanting to learn without paying any money. However, I have personally discovered that some of the most effective piano lessons online are not for free. You should remember that some of the DVDs and EBooks that are been sold did not just appear over night but a lot of time and effort were invested in them.

Try doing your own investigations and find the most appropriate piano programme that will give some success.

Have a great time practicing on your piano!
