Initially for the beginners it may seem difficult to even play the acoustic guitar. It takes a tremendous amount of time, patience and practice to learn any thing.
You need to have the desire or the ability just to get to a point to where the fingers can play anything worth while on the guitar. The strength and dexterity that the acoustic guitar demands is at first, alien to the fingers. In the guitar the scales not only go up and down the neck but also across the fret board. Many of the notes repeat themselves in several locations on the acoustic guitar. It requires dexterity to make each hand work in a different way; one hand has to push down on the string while the other hand has to pluck the strings accurately and at the same time. Not being able to look at both hands at once can make it very hard for beginners to keep track of their fingers and understand what is going on.
Besides the bagpipes, the acoustic guitar has been known as the most difficult instrument to learn. A useful tip in learning to play the acoustic guitar is to stop practicing after sometime. After practicing for many hours a day for a few weeks, take a few days off the guitar and you will be amazed to find your fingers limber and more accurate.
Your playing on the day you come back will be better than if you practiced all day the day before. This is because if you take a break after practicing for a long time, your brain will continue to work on it, even if you do not consciously give it any thought. When you miss some days you become anxious to get back to learning and your brain produces chemicals that are beneficial to your learning. When you get back on the acoustic guitar those charged up brain cells release themselves like a bull running. Once you get a hang of how to learn playing the guitar it can be fun.
Another good technique to use is practicing your acoustic guitar mentally. If you can visualize yourself playing the guitar then your brain won't know the difference. With this technique you will be able to learn perhaps faster than if the guitar was in your hand.
This idea can be put to use while waiting at the traffic signal or for any one. You also reduce the number of mistakes you actually make while practicing in your mind and this becomes evident when you actually play the guitar. While going in for a purchase left handed people should buy Right Handed guitars. Consider the density of wood, the action of the frets and the intonation while choosing a guitar.
