Hi everyone! This is the first lesson in a series of lessons that will really help you get started the right way in electric guitar playing! I have these all clearly laid out for you, and I try to make sure that I leave no stone unturned in terms of what you will need to know.
This first lesson deals with the various parts of the electric guitar and their functions, proper fretting, starting to play harmonics, getting to know the names of the strings and just generally getting to know your entire instrument in a simple and un-intimidating way. This is a very important stage before you actually begin to play, because the electric guitar for some can be somewhat “daunting”. I want to make sure that you start to play the guitar already feeling like you and your guitar are friends! So I hope you enjoy this first and very basic lesson, and that it will make you want to continue on this exciting road to real electric guitar playing!—Arlen Roth
