Hello UG community. I am building a website for beginners and need input from real people to help me write better content. As an avid guitar player I feel that I am alway struggling to take my playing to the next level. I know that we have all gotten stuck at some point in our practice and I would like to know what are/were your biggest challenges as a beginner? What techniques did you have trouble with? What scales, chords, and musical concepts frustrated you? How did you over come them? I want to hear your beginner stories.
I was pretty frustrated when I first started and couldn't play a thing. Because I couldn't, I had no motivation to play. It was a vicious cycle.

I think that's a cycle that's hard to break out of all by yourself.
