How To Play D7 Chord | One Chord | Easy | Beginners Guitar Lesson

D7 Guitar Chord


These videos are made to be short and simple. The idea is to make learning the guitar quick and easy. Of-course there is no substitute for practice. Guitar students should practice at least 15-25 minutes/day. It is important that you adhere to this, as without practice, very little progress will be made on the guitar.

Learning to play the guitar was one of the best decisions I ever made, and playing the guitar and singing has been one of the most rewarding things that I have done in my life. Honestly, if it was EASY to learn how to play the guitar, everyone would be doing it. The rock stars you see on TV make it look easy, and once somebody reaches a certain level of ability on the guitar, it certainly doesn’t require much effort to play well…but getting to that point is NOT an easy task. And it shouldn’t be!

Think about it: anything in life that’s: worth doing, worth pursuing or worth mastering – takes work. Whether it’s finishing school, keeping a marriage together or moving up in your career, if it’s worth doing, it’s also worth fighting for, right? Guitar is no different. It can be one of the most rewarding things you ever choose to pursue in your lifetime and it can add tremendous value to your life, but it’s not easy…especially at first.

Unlike learning the piano, for instance, with the guitar, you have some of the hardest stuff to face at the very beginning. Your fingers and hands will rebel at first. Developing callouses and muscles in the hands will be a little painful and uncomfortable in the early stages of playing. You’ll have trouble with muscle memory, pattern recognition, keeping your fingers from muting other strings, changing between chords and a dozen other related skills that you have to get proficient at right at the very beginning. You WILL get frustrated! It really does get easier as you go, but the hardest part is right at the start.

I just wanted to throw that in, because some people will need to line up their expectations with reality. Regardless of what you want to be able to do on the guitar, it’s best to know what you’re about to face from the very beginning, so you can adjust your expectations accordingly. I will do my best, as your teacher, to pace you and help you to succeed as a guitarist.
