Playing the Geetar

HM

Yeah so I have this pretty geetar now. Only I told the guy at the store I didn't need a video or anything, and I could teach myself to play.

Does anyone know anything on the internet that can help me? Or do I have to actually spend more money? *FRET*

It's just.....so pretty....pretty Geetar....and I have no feckin clue how to play it!!

Muchas smooches.

Clarity: Ohhhh, well hello there mr Foadzilla, you look mighty snarly today.

Foadzilla:*lifts eyebrow* Foad?

Clarity: Oh yeah definitely.

You can probably teach yourself Grace in ten minutes. It's only two strings. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock's intro isn't too hard either.

MONA: We're NOT returning it!!!!!!! *strokes geetar*

If you decide to get into metal music, I have a BC Rich 'Virgin' for sale at the moment.Floating bridge, good pickups,black of course, going cheap.
Kids!!tch* I told him he should have waited and got a Flying V.
Just stick at it WildHonee, you'll get there. Have you got some friends who play? Ask them for help.Get a chord shape book.They don't cost much. Lessons are good value for money though. Did you hear that WildHonee's mom?

Looking back, I wish I had let my mother teach me to play piano.A very versatile instrument.
Good luck with your geetar playin'.

I taught myself how to play when I was about 12. Just get some "teach yourself guitar" book for a couple of bucks. It's not that hard to get started, but will take practice. don't get discouraged...figuring out how to tell your fingers to change chords quickly takes a while at first.

Good luck on the guitar!

I REALLY wish I could learn how -- my stupid uncle got bored with the 40 guitars of every shape, colour, size and brand he had so they are just sitting around here.. I wish I could learn how to play
