Answers:

When playing an instrument I'd say you should begin playing anything that you are starting to work on slowly UNLESS you already have the skills to play it at normal speed. For example, if I needed to learn something from written music I'd have to play it slowly as I'm a poor reader. If I was just learning a straightforward chord sequence I'd be able to play it at the correct tempo right away and there'd be no point in playing it slowly.

It really depends on your ability and what you're trying to play. I'd say you shouldn't be trying to learn a song that's beyond your ability but even so you'd probably need to slow it down to start with. If something requires a technique or level of ability you just don't have yet then forget it.

Avoid playing the "easy" parts at the correct tempo and then slowing down for the "difficult" bits.

Really though, thinking about it, TommyMc has, again, probably given you the best and most useful answer, especially the part where he agrees with Mikey (two great guys - intelligent, clean, industrious and good-looking).

Matty, a large part of practice is developing what we call "muscle memory". When you repeat any motion enough times, your muscles become more efficient at performing that motion. The goal is to have your hands and fingers preform almost automatically. The best way to approach this is by starting slow enough that you don't make mistakes. You don't want your muscles memorizing the mistakes! As you get better at playing something, you can gradually bring it up to speed.

Another tip is to learn things in small chunks. If you're playing chords, practice changing back and forth between two of them until you can do it smoothly. Then move on to the next two chords. If you're working on a long lead passage, break it down into licks....maybe 6 notes at a time.

Most of all, as Mikey suggested, get a teacher who can show you the right way to learn things. It's a lot easier to learn correctly than to unlearn bad technique later.

You should take the advice of your guitar teacher. If you don't have one, get one as soon as possible otherwise you're bound to pick up bad habits.

No. You should play them really, really fast.

"and is the anymore tips for beginner guitarist" means you should write slowly.

If you are reading music and playing then you really need to follow the music time for the tune you are learning... but if you find it hard to play this way. break the music up into smaller sections and perfect each section..

I started by just finding notes that sounded good or "right" together, i.e chords, then listening to songs from my laptop and trying to 'play along' to them. Start with slow and simple (3 / 4 chord) songs

try starting off with easy slower beat songs like childrens songs to get you used to the chording of the guitar and as time goes you can progress.to more harder ones as you go just take your time and you will do well......................good luck
