Hi I just registered on this site. Hehe^^
I haven't had lessons before but I'm able to read tabs. Is there any place where I can learn some tips and tricks and can someone link me to some easy beginner tabs.

P.S. I play fingerstyle.

Oh by the way, if you really want to be a tr00 guitarist, wear a cape and a mask.

I find ... whatever the song, going through the chord version of the song first to get a strumming feel for it, and then moving onto the full TAB to get the nuances and licks is a much easier way to fast track learning a new song.

Oh, and if a chord version or tab doesn't sound right to you, make sure to check the comments. I find about 10 - 20 % of the posted chord versions and some tabs too will have mistakes. These are often pointed out and corrected by someone in the comments section.

Time to work on the chords mate. Music is chord based so the chords is an important step.

Since you're a finger picker chords ARE a must. Learn with the open chords (nut chords) and those chords (shapes) can be moved to positions with a barre on the fretboard.

Here's your very first lesson, tune the guitar and always tune the guitar when you play.

You cannot develop your ears with an untuned guitar.
