Lesson 2: The E Gunn

Welcome to Lesson 2 of the Beginner’s Guitar course. If your fingers are feeling a bit sore – don’t worry, that’s totally normal. In fact, it’s sort of a rite of passage for all guitarists starting off. Try to remember all the tips I've given you so far on how to reduce the pain, but you just got to push through it!

Also, the most important thing to keep in mind as a beginner is that IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK. Things won’t sound perfect at this stage. Things won’t feel smooth and easy. Many things will probably feel awkward or difficult. Again, you’ve just got to stick with the program, not be too hard on yourself at this point, and really make a concerted effort to remember that things absolutely will get easier with practice.

In this lesson, we’ll be going over:

  • The E chord
  • Using Anchor Fingers
  • Tapping Your Foot
  • Strumming Mechanics
  • Loads of songs using A, D and E!
