Chords are usually the first thing we learn on guitar and they build the foundation for a lot of what we do. I remember the first time I strummed a chord all the way through and it rang through my room and all the strings sounded clean. It’s a great and proud feeling that instills a feeling a progress and I see that in my students. It’s a great feeling every single time. But getting these chords to ring out nicely without any muted strings is only the first step in the journey of guitar and rhythm playing.
Tuning your guitar is a very important part of playing. You can use a tuner or you can learn to tune by ear, either one will get the job done.
Using a tuner is always the best way to be absolutely sure that your guitar is truly in tune, and it never hurts to have something like the handy for tuning your guitar anywhere.
Carbon fiber guitars have a great lasting sound and really are the best guitars for traveling. These guitars are much more sturdy and will stay that way for a lot longer than wood. The way they are constructed takes all the credit for this. Guitar makers have swapped out the traditional wooden body for carbon fiber adding unbeatable strength.
