TOP 5 MISTAKES BEGINNERS MAKE LEARNING GUITAR ONLINE
1- Tensing and twisting the wrist while strumming
Strumming motion begins at the elbow with just a little movement of the wrist. The most important thing it to RELAX the arm and just have enough tension to hold on top the pick
2- Picking is a small motion that should be done with movement of the wrist only
Resting the wrist is optional, but I think it will help most people be more accurate with their picking
3- Putting chord fingers down one at a time
Try making the shape of the chord with your fingers before putting the fingers down
4- Not knowing where the beat falls and understand ‘ghost strums’ (hand movements that you don’t strum)
5- Not building a repertoire of songs
