    Post Learn How to play songs on Guitar ( Basic Notes Theory )

    Learn How to play songs on Guitar ( Basic Notes Theory )
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Hi Guys, as my tutorial title sounds a complete vast world in itself, but
    its really possible to learn playing on guitar perfectly and easily.

    We will learn playing tunes via following lessons :-

    Lesson 1 : Learn the FretBoard Pattern ( Attached with THREAD ).
    Lesson 2 : Practsing Basic Scale.
    Lesson 3 : Practical Song Practise.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Lesson 1 : Learn the FretBoard Pattern

    The the long neck of your guitar is known as FRETBOARD. Frets are seperated via thin metal sticks. Each Fret consists of 6 Music notes.
    As we know the notes that are present on Guitar, are combined in
    various forms to form a song or tune. So, first we should learn these
    notes and there locations where they are present on FretBoard.

    PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE 'FRETBOARD Image' ATTACHED With This TUTORIAL.

    I assume that you have downloaded the FretBoard. The 6 Strings of a
    Guitar are referred as

    E -------> 1st String (Thinnest)
    B--------> 2nd String
    G--------> 3rd String
    D--------> 4th String
    A--------> 5th String
    E--------> 6th String (Thickest)

    These are also called 'OPEN' Notes. That means when first string is played
    without pressing any note on FretBoard, 'E' note is played. Same is applied to all other Strings.

    Now, as we have learnt Open Notes, we just can't use them alone to play a
    song. Thus we play notes on FretBoard, to play a song.

    The Note Pattern is like this -->

    'E' -- 'F' -- 'F#' -- 'G' -- 'Ab' -- 'A' -- 'Bb' -- 'B' -- 'C' -- 'C#' -- 'D' -- 'D#'

    That is the next immediate note on FretBoard will follow the above pattern ( See FretBoard Image for Better Understanding ).

    You might question, these notes are absent in above pattern -->
    Gb, G#, A#, Db

    Actually they are same as ( Refer to above pattern ),
    Gb --> F#
    G# --> Ab
    A# --> Bb
    Db --> C#

    Suppose You are starting to play a tune, from 'D' note, you can go
    Up and Down, according to FretBoard Pattern.
    Now try to practise the scales from different different position on
    the FretBoard. And check that you are playing the Correct pattern.

    The point is, you should be able to do following things :-
    1) Point out any Note on FretBoard.
    2) Play the above given Pattern from that note.


    Practising this regularly, will definately give you command over the
    Guitar and Yes It WORKS !!!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Lesson 2 : Practising Basic Scale

    You can get a better command over the FretBoard by practising some Basic
    Scales. I have Presented 'Am' Scale here. Try this out and learn it.

    Fret 5 7 8 5 7 8 5 7 4 5 7 5 6 8 5
    String 6 6 6 5 5 5 4 4 3 3 3 2 2 2 1
    Note A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A

    Try to play this 'Am' Scale over your Guitar. You can also try the above
    scale on Nut Position ( i.e. Near 1st Fret and Open Notes ).

    Practise this scale from various locations.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Lesson 3 : Practical Song ( Dancing Eyes )

    Hey buddy, Congrats we are going great. As i suppose we have
    learnt the Basic Notes Theory. Lets try our hands out on a
    Classic Song which follows 'Am' Scale. I'm sure, you are going to
    love it.

    Fret 5 5 5 5 : 5 6 5 7 : 7 7 5 7 5
    Note E E E E : E F E D : D D E D E
    String 2 2 2 2 : 2 2 2 3 : 3 3 2 3 2

    Fret 5 - - - : 5 5 7 5 4 5 : 7 5 6 5 7 5 4
    Note C - - - : C C D C B C : D E F E D C B
    String 3 - - - : 3 3 3 3 3 3 : 3 2 2 2 3 3 3

    Fret 7 5 7 5 4 5 4 : 7 :
    Note A E D C B C B : A - - - :
    String 4 2 3 3 3 3 3 : 4 :

    This Old classic Song is sure to cherish your mood and
    Uh Uh, do keep practising the Notes Theory too.

    Well buddy, i leave you now and promise to be back with
    something really good soon.

    REMEMBER : " To Play a Song Correctly, First Listen To it Correctly. "
