By now, you are efficiently fishing picks out of soundholes and playing full songs without your fingers hurting as much.

But how does someone go beyond the threshold of being a beginner?

In this lesson, we’re going to show you THREE things that you can practice every day to move you past the beginner stage of playing the guitar:

  1. The Pentatonic Scale: Rhythm or lead, knowing this scale and its variations will give you the awareness to know which notes are always available to you over most chord progressions.
  2. Chords: Learning chords is essential when it comes to making progress on the guitar. Build good habits and set yourself up for success.
  3. Root Notes: You’ll always know where to start a scale or what shape to use when building a chord, no matter what key your in, once you’ve found the root note.

Remember, playing the guitar is about having fun — so take these lessons, add them to what you’re learning and watch how quickly you progress.
