    Hey,guitar lessons without a teacher can be tough...but not impossible...There is a friend of mine who learnt guitar through books and the net....There are books available for teaching you and what's better than IGT here?Don't worry first remember the most important thing in learning guitar is Patience and Practice...Now that you've learnt the C,D,E and G chords,practice switching between'll take some time but you'll be able to switch them fast if you practice enough...Try Switching the Chords with various progressions such as D,G,D,A...A,E,A,G...C,D,C,G and then like C,D,G,A etc... and at the same also practice something for leads...such as finger excersises(There are many on the Guitar Tutorials and Beginners Q&A Forum here)...Then try going over for barre barre chords can be painful and very tough at the start but never give hope...if you practice hard enough in about a months time you can get your barre chords right...Then again practice switching between can be a lot time consuming but don't ever give up...once you've mastered those...swith over to power chords...they won't take much time if you've mastered the open chords and barre chords....(Tutorials on Bar and Power chords are available on IGT and all over the net...use google for that) the same time there is a thread somewhere here called easy guitar songs tabs which have guitar tabs of easy hindi songs...try playing them and practice over them...and then move over to arpeggios,riffs and stuff....Just be patient...who knows maybe in some months time you'll be an even better guitarist than many here :)

    @noopsi, i think if u already know how to play chords n notes so there's no problem in picking up. As said by shiraz, go thru the learner's forum n u will find a lot. IGT has loads in it's ocean :beer:. Lastly, practice n practice n practice buddy. All ur hard work gonna make it..

    All the best :beer:

    thanks Shiraz!! gr8 suggestions !!!
    u r right - learning guitar without a teacher can be tough...but not impossible
    I have searched easy hindi songs & found quite a few & also i''ll practice various combinations of chords.....& above all wont let it go so easily !!!
    One more thing i want 2 ask. ........... In many songs the tabs are written in the form Am , Bm like this ...... Numbers i understand but what do these means ....?

    nik_bokacheley :help: I'm a mad :sadbye:

    These are minor chords. You said you have learnt few major chords right ? So, next you have to learn a few minors. There are plenty of chord shapes available. Just search for chord charts either on IGT or on google. Before you start playing songs, just look here and there for chords. By heart the chord shapes.

    ur lucky that u attended the classes for 3 months..i attended hardly for 2 months and trust me there are people here who didnt attend any classes or didnt meet any instructor AT ALL and they play guitar amazingly...Learn all major and minor chords and then the scale.
    Also take a look at lessons on and and most importantly stick around coz u will have loads to learn from IGT..keep practising!
    all the best! :)

    Yup nik_bokacheley is right...those are minor chords....(Forgot to tell you about them,sorry!)every chord has various forms like suspended(sus),flat(b) and minor(m) that means a Bb chords would be a B flat chord,a Bm would be B minor and so on...i suggest downloading a chord dictionary software or something like that or log on to Ares(its a P2P software) and search for sheet music-guitar chord dictionary...i have it and i can give it to you...and keep on practising....and Best of Luck:)

    I suggest all the beginners( Like me :)) to use Guitar Pro (4 or 5....4 is much smaller) to see tonz and tonz of chords and their shapes etc. I also do not have any teachers. I am learning it myself. I know many will not agree, but I think the best way to learn guitar is to learn it yourself. No one can teach you guitar if you don't practice enough ( I prctce for atleast 2 hours a day). So don't lose ur spirit dude, it is better that you do not have any teacher. It will help you to develop your own skill not only on guitar, but also on music itself!

    i always found that learning the CAGED system was the best way to start off. dan morgan describes in his book the "three chord trick" which is basically three chords in a key that can be used to play simple songs. its a standard 1-4-5 progression, or the tonic-dominant 7th-subdominant progression.
    practice can be like this

    G / / / | D7 / / / | C / / / | D7 / / / | G


    D / / / | A7 / / / | G / / / | A7 / / / | D

    transpose to the other keys of C, A and E.
