    I have a guitar that I don't know how to play. well I mean I can pick out Ode to Joy but changes? ha. no pain, no pain. good luck. remember Joni Mitchell can't play a C chord either.



    edit: in other words I fail.
    I'm scared I'll Az out on this. Right now, it seems hard to imagine fluidly changing chords, but I've seen so many buttmunches and sloths do it, that it can't be THAT hard, can it? My fucking fingers are numb right now. I was playing basic scales last night. Fucking pinkie finger, goddamn it. That shit hurts.

    Menik - You let me know if you get started. But if you start making rapid progress, don't tell me about it. I'm shooting for jingle bells by x-mas. If I'm lucky.

    thats pretty much the same motto i lived by for the first 2 years i played. yeah your fingers are probably hurting like hell because the action* on your guitar may be too high. most acoustic guitars that can be picked up for less than 300 arent setup properly even at the factory and that could be whats making your digits ache.

    I keep muting the adjacent strings with my fingers. I seem to do this more, the more I play and the more the fingers hurt.

    You're right on track, then.

    Also, a friend of mine who was going to learn put superglue on his fingertips and let it dry, and got some weird fakey calluses that I think worked out OK. He quit after like a month, but whatever.

    Just do power chords for a couple years then branch out. Recipe for success.

    You'll get calluses in no time Greg. It does suck at first though. Once you don't have to worry about pain you can start focusing on chord changes and shapes and stuff. Then you can write rock operas and play screaming solos.

    congrats on the purchase.
    learning guitar can be tough, but it can be quite rewarding.
    good luck. your friends (the people ones...not the internet ones) will start to hate you once you start showing them every new song you've started to figure out.
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    Sweet, Greg. I popped my guitar cherry on an Alvarez, too. Still have it, in fact.
    And, fight through pain! Your fingers are gonna be screaming, but that is what you want. Once the calluses kick in, you won't even feel it.

    True dat. First song I learned was "The One I Love" by REM, and all my friends thought it was cool at first,...until they realized it was the only one I knew.

    Just curious. You didn't happen to buy that guitar at a pawn shop in or around the San Luis Obispo area, did you?
    All the punks think that you're dumb.

    Depends on the lens. If you're looking at where I bought it from the sun, yes, I was definitely in the San Luis Obispo area.

    But if you look at it from say, a few thousand feet from the Earth, then, no. I bought it in the Missoula, Montana area.

    Greg, are you a Nirvana fan?

    One of the first songs I learned was 'Polly' by Nirvana.
    It's a nice song to get under your belt and a nice and easy exercise in strumming patterns.

    You're one post away from 1,000. Yeah, I like "Polly" quite a lot actually, one of my favorites of theirs.

    Look what this bitch did to my fingers today!

    Are you going to cry Greg? Are you going to complain? Or are you going to tough it out so you can follow your muse? Be a champion Greg.

    The guy who helped me buy the guitar told me: "playing music isn't for pussies."

    This shit is hard.

    I can sorta play "What Do You Do WIth a Drunken Sailor" with a gap between chords you could drive a truck through. Plus, I get the D chord right on approximately 35% of my attempts. And fuck the F chord. Fuck it in the ass.

    Greg, are you doing the "Full Bar" F chord, or just the open F Chord? Difference being the full bar entails you putting your entire index finger over the first fret.

    The fucking open F chord I've seen requires my index finger to cover the last two strings on the top fret and then stretch my ring and pinkie finger in a sonically unteneable position. Unless I'm misunderstanding the tablature - it's from Bay's instruction manual. Hence the "What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor."

    Right, but it isn't too difficult, just needs some practice. It's not that different from an open C. Here's an image:

    Hey Greg, practice the C to Am change. It will please you because it is easy. You only move one finger.
