But seriously you do.

Your memory problems will go away after time, and i hope your "spwelin" does too.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.
Yeh, I'd love to help you, but I have to be able to understand you first.

I agree.

Anyway, you can't remember chords and stuff, aye? Well, how long have you been playing for? If you're like me and only have been playing for 3 days, I wouldn't expect to have the chords engraved in my head either. Just practise your chords flat out for like an hour or two and you might be able to remember them.
im glad to see the first few people were so helpful. I found that you just learn a couple of songs that use the chords (a song you like) and so you have to be able to play the chords in order to play the song, gives you incentive to remember them doesnt take all that long to learn them though, and once you do youll look back and try and work out what was so hard about learning them
never happened. when i see a chord i just remember where it goes. try to visualise the shape you make with your fingers, that mite help. Then again, might just be cos ur trying to learn too many too fast.

no. dont play the guitar

Then what are you doing on a guitar forum?
tkz to the guy's who helped posted something more helpful then thoese being as ass
i find it helpful to study some chord theory and understand how chords are built while also studying the names of the notes on the neck...this will allow you to locate chord shapes almost sub-consciously and eliminate the need to memorize chords, which is a hassle...it will take some hard work and study, but it will pay off, not only with chords, but with inversions and arpeggios as well

it took you 15 consecutive hours of practice to realize that playing guitar makes you better at playing guitar. congratulations.
