– You’ve got to be able to start with a simple song. Don’t try to memorize it immediately. Keep in mind that you’re practicing on an instrument you learned on in the past and with new scales. It is not uncommon to go through an entire season of learning scales.
– In order to be able to play an easy song, you need to learn the basics and know what the notes mean. The scales you’ll need to use in order to practice this song are the simple ones you learn on guitar.
– Don’t be afraid of practicing the songs you already know. If you’ve made it this far, you will not need to practice every day. If you need to, use free-lunch days or practice only when you feel like it.

As well, here is a chart of how to find the chords of each scale. You will have an idea of how the chords sound when you know the patterns for the chords you are trying to learn at the same time.
If you want to play a chord, start off by learning the pattern for the chord. Once you have learned all the notes for the chord, it’s time to take over. Find the chord with the lowest frequency for each key of the scale. For “E Bb F C# G” find the chord with the lowest frequency for each key of E.
To play the same chord, you will need to be able to play the basic position on the fretboard. To be able to play this position on the guitar, you have to first learn two key positions from the notes on that fretboard.
When learning these notes, you have to know the notes a lot first. If you don’t know the notes, it will get pretty hard. Don’t worry if you don’t know all the notes for these positions on the guitar. It is best to practice those positions with an interval table before you start practicing every day or two. You may find it beneficial to practice with an interval chart and take notes while playing.
Finally, you have to memor
