hey everyone!
I'm a newbie to this site and i just wanted to say hi :)
In the summer I woke up one day and decided I wanted to learn guitar so a week later a bought a Fender DG-7 accousitc and well tried to teach myself guitar. After about a month I pretty much stopped playing but now I am trying to get back into it again.
I dont have the time or really the money to get guitar lessons so I was just wondering if anyone could give me some good pointers on how to get started and how to stick with playing guitar.
Thanks alot, this site looks great :)

You should learn the major chords first and a scale or two. Practice strumming these chords and changing from one chord to another. You would be suprised how many songs are made from three or four chords. Practice, Practice, Practice. Learning to play well takes time so if you get frustrated take a break.
I am a constant evolving music machine. Oh Man, I just forgot what I was playing. Oh well, on to the next song. :rolleyes:
