Playing guitar as a hobby or professionally can be very fulfilling. It is a great outlet for one's creativity and passion, and is the perfect expression of one's self. Whether you are a beginner guitar player or not, you could use the following tips and instructions to improve your guitar playing.

1) Good posture is Truly Underrated

While you can play guitar in almost any position, good position is integral to getting the most out of your guitar. Without good posture you could put yourself in greater risk for straining muscles – not to mention that wrong posture is truly awkward and uncomfortable to the player. You could even acquire or exacerbate back pain playing in the wrong position.

In a sitting position, sit up straight and cradle the guitar with your legs. Armless chairs are better for this sort of playing. If you are a classical player you might want to purchase a foot rest to elevate your left leg (if you are right-handed).

While standing, make sure you have good footing, with feet properly spaced. Keep the guitar high on your chest. If you have a guitar strap then you could avoid getting fatigued while playing your guitar.

2) Hold Your Pick the Right Way

If you are a pick player, one common mistake you can avoid is to hold your pick the right way. The proper way to hold a pick is to grip is firmly but not too tightly.

If you hold your pick to firmly, you could get your arm tired real easily. If you hold it too loose you could easily lose your pick during a very vigorous strumming session. The best place to hold your pick is somewhere in its middle.

Choosing the right pick is also another important choice you will have to make. If you are a beginner, you may want to use soft picks for strumming. They are also easier on the arms and do not need to be gripped too tightly. However, most flabby picks do not perform well when used to pluck individual strings, bass strings, or when flat picking.

3) Practice your arpeggios

After giving strumming a thorough work out, try working on arpeggios as they could seriously improve you playing style and will open you up to new guitar skills. Some players start with arpeggios before jumping into serious lead playing or complicated playing.

It also gives your playing much more variety than would be available if you stuck to simpler chord playing. And as mentioned, arpeggios are the gateway to higher level playing skills.

4) D Chord Secrets Revealed

The D-sus chord is a beautiful flourish when used to lead back to the D-chord. It is easily done by adding your pinkie finger to the chord at the third fret. Practice how this chord is used and you will find that it easily integrates into most contemporary songs.

You could also use this with other chords. You may refer to most chord charts to find out how these chords are done.

Conclusion

In the end practice is still the best way to get better at guitar playing. However, you can avoid wasting your time during practice by learning to practice smarter instead of just more. The tips mentioned above will help you get started on this road.
