The answer to this question is actually very simple… it depends. To learn guitar fast , you need to work hard at first, but more importantly, you need to have fun with your guitar. The fact is that to learn to play guitar is a never ending process, there is always something different that you can learn, as a matter of fact, to learn guitar fast is not a destination, it’s a journey.
Also, to learn with ” guitar learning software “, I would say that it may take up to three weeks if you practice every day. After learning the chords, the next step is to start learning easy songs that do not require much effort from your side.
Let’s create a small time chart so you can have a clue of how your improvement with the guitar could be after you choose to take this road.
1 – 3 Months: in this small amount of time you will be able to play easy songs such as Wonderwall by Oasis. Songs like the one mentioned do not require much knowledge; you only need to learn the basic chords to play it. You are off to a good start.
3 – 6 Months: In this part of the chronogram, you´ll find yourself able to play more difficult songs; you will be able to apply techniques like hammer-ons and pull-offs. At this point, you already feel very one with your guitar.
6 Months – 1 Year: At this point you will practice songs that have more difficult riffs and arpeggios. The rhythm guitar of Pantera and Megadeth come to my head, that is because I’m a fan of them, but they do have some good songs to practice your new skills.
1 – 2 Years: A this point, you realize that your fingers are in great shape and it becomes easier to master a new song. A lot of musicians use similar riffs and that helps you to know half a song before you start to learn it.
2 – 3 Years: Now you can start to learn new techniques; for example, if you haven’t yet, you could start practicing the blues, or you could also start to learn jazz guitar. If it was me, I would rather learn Jazz, because you do learn a lot about improvisation. Look up in Youtube for Tomo Fujita to get a better idea of how you could end up playing.
3 – 5 Years: To be practicing for five years… you could probably play just about any song you want. You will find yourself wanted by other people to be in their band as the lead guitar. After learning guitar for five years, probably you are going to have over three guitars; an acoustic, an electric and an electro-acoustic. At this point, you are unstoppable.
After that, you’llyou will find out that there is still a lot to be learned. As I said before, playing guitar is a never ending process. Of course, you need to practice many hours, you will not be able to play guitar overnight. I would think that to achieve a nice level of guitar playing it could take about half a year. Then, the world is your Oyster.
