Practicing Guitar – Exercise #1

Looking for fun exercises to improve your guitar playing?

February 2, 2018

Hey everyone!

Here is our first exercise for guitar. This guitar exercise is intended for beginners and it makes a great warmup for daily practice.

Following after what we learned on ‘Guitar Lesson #1: Strings of The Guitar’, this exercise will help you gain control over your picking technique and it will help you locate and accurately play individual strings for future and more advance songs and exercises. Please note that I highly recommend using an ‘Anchor’ by placing either your pinky finger or both your pinky and ring finger of your right hand below the strings and lightly touching the guitar. The use of this ‘Anchor’ technique has been quite a debate, as many professional guitar players don’t approve of it and don’t quite feel it is necessary, but truthfully it works for me and it’s been a great tool on my career.

This Guitar Exercise is divided into 3 smaller exercises.

1- Practice picking the strings down starting on the Low E String and going through the strings one by one, all the way to the High E String.

2- Practice picking the strings up starting on the High E String and going through the strings one by one, all the way to the Low E String.

3- Practice picking the strings starting on the Low E and picking down all the way to the B String, followed by picking up on the High E string and continue picking up one by one all the way to the A String, where at this point we will once again switch directions and start picking down on the Low E for a continued cycle.

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
