7 Benefits of Learning Guitar
Loving and learning guitar are 2 different matters entirely. Instead of just envying your guitar idols like most raving fans, you can develop your style and brand. And what better way than learning to play? Here are 7 benefits of learning guitar that can help you be a guitar pro in no time.
1 Enhancing Your Brain
You might not realize it but it is true.
Playing guitar certainly helps in enhancing your brain to function via initiating signals that subconsciously commands your hands to memorize where to place your finger on a certain fret be it left or right chord.
All this while engaging in the appropriate manner of strumming. This is very similiar to playing piano and even typing whereby you know without even thinking exactly where or when to place your fingers on certain keys naturally.
2. Satisfying Your Basic Needs
Again this is hard to believe but studies have proven otherwise time and again.
By playing guitar especially on your favourite song or music, it helps in satisfying your basic needs like inner fulfilment, personal pleasure and self achievement. When that happens, you feel more motivated to move on.
3. Flexibility To Play Anywhere You Want
Unlike a piano and drums, you can bring along your guitar when going out. Even if it is long and bulky, you can put it into carrying case and then placed into the boot of the car if you have one.
My suggestion for this is to get a medium or small-sized light weight guitar for ease and convenience if you constantly need to go out.
4. Get Noticed For Your Talent
Except to family and friends, most people feel embarrassed to play guitar in front of strangers and public places for fear they are not good enough.
Though it might seem a daunting challenge, you never know when you get noticed for your talent. Especially when someone among the crowd happens to be the music director, producer or even the head of the guitar band looking for additional players.
5. Becoming A Natural Talent
You might also never know when you play, people around you might see you as a natural talent though the chances of that happening are rare.
If they like you, they might want you to compete in some guitar idol competition where you get a chance not only to impress the judges and worldwide audience but also win a contract with some guitar company to be groomed into a professional guitarist should you finish in the top 3.
6. Cheering Up
Life has plenty of ups and downs.
Sometimes you have a great day while other times, you have a bad day.
Instead of just staring blankly into empty space and wondering why things are so unfair, you might want to vent your anger and sorrow on playing guitar. Doing this will help in cheering you up.
7. Building A Career
If guitar is your primary interest of everything, you may consider building a career out of it.
But please note that impressing your future employers at guitar studios and judges at auditions are more difficult than impressing your family and friends. This is the challenge that separate guitar pros from guitar wannabes.
As much as you want to play well, you need to be prepared to accept criticism, recover and improve from there. Though this is easier to be said than done, this is one of the essential requirements from every guitarist if they ever want to succeed as every guitar fan's next idol.
