If you are beginning to feel a little more confident in your playing ability, you might be looking to expand your repertoire.
There are several ways you can learn new guitar songs at home. We’ve come up with four for you to try. Check them out below.
1. Invest in quality online guitar lessons
Becoming a better guitarist isn’t as simple as growing your repertoire. You must continue to develop your technique and understanding of musical theory long after you’ve outgrown beginner material.
One of the best ways to do this is to invest in quality online guitar lessons – that means lessons with proven results, not quick-fix 7-day schemes that leave you frustrated and disappointed.
Here at the Steve Flack Guitar Academy, our students follow the world-renowned Trinity College London music education system on their schedule and from the comfort of their own homes. Guitarists work on their technical skills and learn a whole bunch of new songs.
What’s more, even if you feel like you’re already past the beginner stage, with us, you can skip Initial Grade and start with First or Second Grade.
2. Purchase sheet music
Learning to read music is a must for all musicians – guitarists included. Once you know how to read sheet music, you can quickly and easily learn new guitar songs at home.
Whether you are looking to add a classical, rockabilly, or pop song to your repertoire, you’re sure to find the sheet music for your favourite songs online or at your local music store.
3. Read tablature online
Tablature – or tab, for short – is a simplified way of communicating guitar music. If you haven’t yet learnt to read tab, it’s a valuable skill to have alongside reading standard music notation.
Tab is a popular way for guitarists to learn new songs because it’s generally free. Do be aware, however, that free tab is often transcribed by amateur guitarists – not professionals. More often than not, the tab is inaccurate, which can be a little frustrating.
4. Online guitar videos
There are seemingly infinite guitar tutorials on video hosting sites like YouTube. These might seem like a good way to learn new guitar songs at home, but much like free tab, these tutorials are usually made by amateurs and aren’t accurate or easy to understand.
If you want a video tutorial with a little more substance that’s easy to follow, check the many arrangements we have available right here at the Steve Flack Guitar Academy. Each original arrangement comes with both sheet music and tab, plus an in-depth lesson from Steve himself. You’ll be playing your new favourite song confidently and accurately in no time at all.
