There are so many things to learn about your guitar let alone how to play it. Here are just a few things we need to learn when we first start looking for guitar lessons.

So let’s go over these points. One of the most overlooked point is tuning your guitar, this is one of the most important things to learn when you first start out, if your guitar is out of tune it wont sound right and you won’t be able to learn your chords properly.
Then next point is to learn what guitar strings to use, what brand name and what size to use for your guitar. You must also need to know the names of your strings, such as the first string is E.
You might think the next point is not important but if you don’t hold your guitar properly you will have a hard time learning to place your fingers properly on the strings and you won’t be able to play the chords.
Next you need to get a guitar pick that fits your guitar playing style, picks vary in thickness and you need to find one that suits you. Then you will be able to strum your guitar properly.
Of course you will be learning guitar chords and this is one of the most difficult things to lean to do. This is the most important point to look for when picking a guitar lesson course.
It is also important to know how to change your strings properly as you will need to change your strings often.
Make sure you don’t overlook how to care for your guitar, what type of polish to use and how to store it so you will get a life time of use with your new guitar.
