Claude starts off this easy beginner guitar lesson by giving some advice for beginner guitarists. “Mastering the basic chords is 80 to 90 percent of the work when you are starting out as a beginner guitar player,” says Johnson. “When you want to play all of your favorite songs, it seems like a lot of work to get the chords down in the beginning and that’s when a lot of people give up and that after you get them down its only another 10 percent to put them together.” Claude continues by demonstrating some basic principles for playing basic chords correctly and easily, such as “the ring test” and the “bowling ball grip”. Johnson explains these two techniques as follows: the ring test is just basically playing each string separately to make sure that each string is note muted and is ringing out correctly and the bowling ball grip is basically bending your fretting hands wrist inward to insure that your fingers are not muting strings that they are not supposed to be touching. Claude suggests checking out his course The Ultimate Beginner Guitar Course, available at GuitarControl.com, for further help and states that it has the “best guarantee in the business”.
