hello everyone


I'm 40+ from Finland and have never played any instrument until about 2 years ago. I saw someone online talking about covid and saying that it's the perfect time to learn guitar and I said to myself "YAAAAAAASSSSSS"!!!! I had my doubts, of course, about the whole project as my left hand has been mainly idle for 40 years, so I loaned a guitar for a while from the library. After a couple of months I bought an acoustic Yamaha and did the usual Youtube-method where you end up wasting a lot of time looking for the right stuff and decent teachers. Eventually, I gave into the Guitartricks advertisements and I have no regrets about it. It's very convinient and saves a lot of time. Learning guitar is way harder than other hobbies I've had before, but I don't mind my super slow progress as I've always been a music fan. It's kind of cool to finally learn an instrument and not just listen to other people play. Anyway, that's all - just wanted to say hi!

Welcome. Go through all of the guitar one lessons very slowly so that you understand all the concepts. Then move on to number 2. Do the same thing, get all the lessons well learned. Anders is a fantastic teacher and will help with anything you don't understand. Remember you and your guitar are taking a journey together. Enjoy every minute of it. Good luck!!
