There Are Only Notes You Don’t Resolve
You never have to worry about playing a wrong note. There is no such thing. There are only notes you don’t resolve.
Every note you play that you didn’t mean to play is an open opportunity to take it somewhere interesting. Repeat the “wrong” note so it sounds like you meant to play it, then resolve it somewhere. This leads to the important lesson to be learned: “There are no wrong notes, there are only notes you don’t resolve.”
As a matter of fact, as a fun exercise: Deliberately hit any random wrong note and see if you can turn it into an opportunity to create really cool melody lines. See if you can find a way to not make it sound like a mistake.
Here’s a hint: Moving up or down a half step will usually resolve any wrong notes. After all, most scales consist of whole and half steps. When you hit a “wrong” sounding note, you’re almost certainly right between two scale notes a whole step apart.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.
That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.
If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
You’ll impress your friends and loved ones in no time with your guitar playing!
