You should be able to learn 20 or so guitar and bass chord patterns – the most basic of which are B Major and C Major – and have them memorized by the time you reach high school.
Learning a few more at a time can lead to your gaining more and more confidence without taking up any real space in the world.
Why is it important to learn these chord shapes so early on, anyway?
The reason is that once you master the basic shapes, you should be able to memorize these shapes without the assistance of any notes in your guitar playing arsenal, and as soon as you practice them in a live setting, you should be able to play almost any chord in a live setting very effectively.
This means that your playing will start feeling more natural.
Why do you say that it’s important to learn these chord types early on?
There are actually two reasons why this may make sense:
This can help you to develop your understanding of scales. Learning a few more basic guitar chord types will allow you to learn a wider variety of scales. This will give you a better chance of picking up a new scales or pattern in a live setting.
The more chord shapes you can grasp and play, the better your ability to play any chord over that you encounter with a different chord type, so you’ll need more chords to play in one session and less songs to try it over a different chord type.
It can also help to get more confident with your musical knowledge, as you’ll feel that you can get started on all your chords much easier with more material at your disposal.
How are you going to become more comfortable playing the piano?
The good news is that as we’ve touched on before, learning the piano quickly isn’t always the best way to improve.
There are several different options to achieve that.
You can work on your musical skills with a teacher, which is certainly an option depending on the school you go to. This will help you build confidence in your own playing and will certainly help you to pick up new ideas quickly and to develop your rhythm and technique. You can go to a music school, although this can be a somewhat expensive option. Music schools will help you to hone your piano playing and will also help you learn other aspects of music theory and technique. You can learn piano with a teacher, and this too will help you to develop confidence in your own playing and to learn new ideas quickly and to
