hey watsup. just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. names ryan. i have been playing for a very short time... 3 days to be exact (hold laughter). ive always wanted to learn i just never had the opportunity. finally got a guitar, nothing special but it plays. any tips and/or pointers yall have for a beginning player would gladly be appreciated. right now im practicing somehwhere between 2-6 hours a day depending on work, etc. im finding myself really addicted to it. i can read tabs. i like to think im doing decent for a couple days work. and i can alrdy play the enter sandman intro (woo), Polly by nirvana, and for ****s and giggles, the beginning of the imperial march song from star wars haha. im not taking any lessons yet. i might take a guitar class at my college, havent decided yet. im basically just teaching myself as of now. i like all types of music, so when it comes down to learning specifics, i dont really have anything, if i had my way i would learn every song imaginable lol. so ya thats pretty much me in a nutshell. once again id appreciate any pointers

This site has a great section of lessons for Beginners to Experts, so a lot of that will help you progress. Also learn some finger strength excercises as well as riffs, it just helps

cheers
