Making a Sound on Guitar – the Only Thing That One Can Hear

It’s common that people spend a lot of time on learning different chord shapes and scales. But you should keep in mind that no matter what tricks you can do with your left hand, the right hand is still the one that produces the sound. No need to say that sound is the most important part of the music 🙂

The common ways of making sound are plucking and strumming the strings. A bit less common are the hitting (golpe) and tapping. In the following video I explain the principles of the sound production. This is just an overview. In real life a player is always using a combination of those possibilities. Although those principles seem simple, it takes years to produce a high quality sound on the guitar. The earlier you add the sound production to your everyday practise, the better.
