OK so ive wanted to play guitar for a while so for xmas the wife and kids got me a new guitar.
I have the following;
Fender T300 guitar
Marshal Cube 50 amp
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
I also have the usual kit like the foot rest, electronic tuner and capo.
I have also just restrung the guitar using Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb (custom light) strings.
I would love to be able to play but after a week my fingers hurt and I sound like cr4p. I am realistic so realise that it will take ages to learn and im happy with that.
I have been practicing with an iPhone app called yousician and ive definitely picked up on loads as I can hit a string whereas before I couldn't.
I have been watching plenty of youtube videos, particularly a guy called Marty Schwartz as his videos look decent.
I am struggling to grasp the art of learning and memorising chords, changing from one chord to another and also strumming.
Ive joined as the forum looked like a good community so thought I could learn quicker if I spoke with people here.
Im willing to learn, have plenty of free time as I travel a lot so let the music begin
