I totally agree with this, apart from jamming with friends I have been taught solely by myself and the little bits of info that you pick up from friends. I have been playing for around 7 years and I remember at around the year and a half mark I was so pissed off as I found it so hard to sing and strum at the same time, but surely with an invaluable bit of advice from a friend, to get my strumming right (imagine your strumming hand connected to your foot with a piece of string and use your foot to keep time, a bit like a metrenone) and this helped me heaps. But with all of this said, I still find the guitar so hard, I am such a rhythm player, and I am shit at playing covers, but I looooooooooooove playing- best thing I ever did was learn

One is also simple..

Am D F G

and then C Am

D is not the normal D...u leave the 3rd string open

F is also slightly different..


sorry i dont know the technicality..

Internet is my guitar guru.. but i am not learning much

When I play One, I play the F which is like the C shape, except it is played one set of strings higher (does that make sense???) the C shape, but dropped down one string each

i could be wrong, but isn't that essentially what an F is? the C moved down a string each?
