I think you mean 'taught' not 'tought' and it's 'you', not 'u'. People will take your threads more seriously if you can put in the effort to spell the thread title correctly, and your first post. There is no reason to use 'u' instead of you. If you can't spell something, an easy way to get the right spelling is to open a word document and check the word there.

And to answer your question, I had a teacher for two years and for the last few months I have been teaching myself.

There are quite a few threads about the topic of self taught or having a teacher. I suggest you use the search next time so you don't make a thread that has already been made. To search click the link that says search. It's at the top of every page of the forums, below the list of links that start with 'guitar tabs'. If you can find the link to search, I'm sure you can work out how to search from there.

I taught my self. I couldn't afford a teacher when I started playing.

Actually, I still can't afford one

It was the only task I would undertake...

I took lessons for a couple years but in the end it was mostly myself, always suprised my guitar teacher by how quickly I was advancing - he taught me the basics but I learnt harmonics, pinch harmonics, sweeps (still working on that ), and whatnot by myself. The great thing about taking lessons is that he taught me different playing styles, everything from basic blues to smashing pumpkins to anything I'd bring in.

I came here to bash your spelling but I think the point got across already and my
"Did you teach yourself to spell too?" comment will now be redundant.

And i like the way i learned.

Looks like you taught yourself English as well.

EDIT: ^ Not if you actually know how to type and actually care how people interpret your opinions and intelligence (bad grammar on the internet is usually generalized as a sign of bad intelligence).
