You are very lucky. You are very lucky because you are alive in the time of the Internet and when you want to learn how to play a new song on the guitar all you have to do is search for information on the Internet. In the past new guitar players did not have that benefit. In the past they would have to fumble around on the guitar all by themselves trying to figure out a song by ear. Nowadays, there are many websites that will teach you how to play just about any song that you want to learn.

What we would like to talk about in this article are those best practices for quickly learning how to play popular songs on the guitar. We could focus on playing the song but in this article we can’t really tell you the chords or the notes that you should play but we can link to that information. What we can do is tell you to process that you should go about.

The first thing that you need to do is to find a website where you can get the tabs for the song. Tabs are an amazing way to learn music on the guitar because they don’t require you to know how to read music. Tabs make it easy for anyone to quickly learn how to play song and it doesn’t take a long time to learn how to read tablature. Matter of fact there is no learning curve at all. You just follow what the tabs say and you will easily begin the process of learning a song. No, you won’t be able to play the song perfectly straight away but with practice you will master it.

We suggest that you learn only a tiny bit of a song at a time and don’t focus on trying to learn the entire song. We suggest this because it is very difficult to learn an entire song in one sitting. It is much easier to master one part of a song at a time. This is a very traditional way of teaching people music and learning new songs. In formal band settings this is how to teach musicians. They call it learning measure by measure, a measure of being a term used for traditional musical notation. Just because you’re using tabs doesn’t mean you can’t learn measure by measure. You might just learn the first five notes of the song and practice that for an hour until you have perfected it. That way you will have that part perfected until you move to the next part and once you get to the and you will perfectly know how to play the song.
