How hard is it to learn how to play the guitar?

It is as hard at the beginning as anything else, and to be honest it’s probably easier than most things.

When you first start learning, you’ll encounter the following issues:

  • Blisters on the fingertips from pressing down on the strings.
  • Wrist ache from new positions and posture which your hand isn’t used to.
  • You’ll discover patience.

Finger blisters will heal and toughen up after a few days.

Any instrument requires dedication. Remembering what you’re expected to practice is half of the battle. Learn slowly and accurately and don’t be in a rush, you’ll discover patience and determination.

The process for learning as an experienced player compared with a novices is actually the same, It’s the speed and knowledge which is different which either helps to speed things up or slow things down.
