    Does anyone follow some of the Guitar teachers on youtube? I like Brian from Activemelody.com. His methods are to the point without all the theory stuff. He has a lot
    of free lessons too. How did you learn Guitar? Are you self taught? Did you take lessons? I think technology has really made learning the guitar or any instrument for that matter a real pleasure.

    I've seen some instructional videos on YouTube from various teachers, for various songs I've wanted to learn.

    I'm self taught. Both my parents, and my older brother, all play guitar. So one day when I was 14, I picked up one of my mom's guitars and a guitar chord book and started learning chords and some simple songs to play with the chords, and it went on from there.

    My parents paid for lessons when I was a kid. I hated it but did learn the "proper" way to play a guitar. After the lessons ended I continued to teach myself. I'm an old man now and still play 2-3 hours a day. My biggest fear of dying is not being able to play the guitar. That's how much I love playing.

    I've considered looking into the "proper" way, and learning things like scales & such. I also like playing piano/synthesizer sometimes, and I've never taken piano lessons either. Sometimes I'll get strange looks from people who have taken formal lessons when I can't read sheet music etc.. The piano seems interesting in how to properly form chords & stuff, and that's something I might be interested in learning more about.

    Tabs are really easy to read. They literally show you where to put your fingers on the fretboard of a guitar for the various chords & notes. That's somethnig you'd need to know anyway in order to translate sheet music to a guitar.

    I started off learning Sultans of Swing through online guitar
    instructionals, then I got a guitar teacher for a few months. I still use online tutorials, nobody specific. I find a lot of them do things
    differently, or incorrectly once you really dig down into it.

    I was going to say that. The only thing the tabs don't do, generally, is
    show you the duration of the notes or where rests are and things like that. They assume you're familiar enough with the song.

    e----------
    b----------
    g----------
    d----------
    a----------
    e----------

    tabs are laid out low E at the bottom, high e at the top. It'll usually tell you if you need to use a drop D, open tuning, capo etc.

    Then literally which frets to put your fingers on.

    e--2-------
    b--3-------
    g--2-------
    d--0-------
    a----------
    e----------

    This shows to play fret 2 on the high e, 3 on the b, and 2 on the g then
    play the d string open. Obviously, your D chord.


    e--0-------
    b--2-------
    g--2-------
    d--2-------
    a--0-------
    e----------

    And your A chord. These differ from the guitar chord boxes you see in printed music because it doesn't give which finger to use.

    That said, you may find some finger style picking tab

    p i m i a i m i
    e|---------0-------
    b|-----1-------1---
    g|---0---0---0---0-
    d|-----------------
    a|-3---------------
    e|-----------------

    p-thumb, i-index, m-middle a-ring finger


    There's different types of bends

    g-------5b7-----

    Bend up on fret 5 until it sounds like fret 7

    e-------r2-----

    Releae down

    g-----pb7-----

    Prebend on 7th fret


    ------6h8------

    hammer on 6 to 8

    ------8p6------

    pull off 8 to 6

    -----7s12------7/12-----

    Either can be use to represent a slide from 7 to 12.


    -----12s7------12\7-----

    Represing a slide from 12 to 7


    There's a lot of other lesser used tabs such has harmonics, tapping, etc.
    This should get most people through a basic tab.

    I've never used a pick. Actually, I lie. I took some guitar lessons at school when I was about 8 but it didn't really last. I probably waste more time trying to learn songs by trying to figure which fingers to use. Crazy Train is near impossible. Strumming is pretty easy.
