just get lots of effects and you'll sound like a god.

well. and one string at a time. when you've mastered the top string you can move on to the next.

Play Dammit by Blink 182. Then the Dani California solo. Then Fade to Black. Then Canon Rock. Then do it all properly and you'll be really good.

start with easy songs first. All blink182 songs are easy and so are nirvana ones. Infact mostly all punk rock bands songs are really easy. Also learn how to read tab.........you wont really get far without it.

it would help if you didn't start off sentences with "like OMG"... also in order to play guitar WELL practice a lot. also learning scales and basic open chords first helped me out a lot

I'll admit I laughed at the first post, but it's not funny any more.

Edit: You could at least be more convincing and keep your typing styles the same (aka don't cap the first letter of every word occasionally).

Sometimes UG-filters change all cappped sentences into sentences like that. so he probably had it all capped like most kids do.

It happened to me a while back when I was trying to make a certain sentence stand out and put the entire sentence in caps. BUT THEN I TRIED AGAIN LATER. and it didn't change it. Its like random or something. I dunno.

Well you see the long lost art of guitar playing is only handed down at birth, so if you can just strum 1 string and mozart doesnt come out then i think you should sell your guitar and buy moraca's their music genes are more commenly found

Ok....Why don't you try doing something besides strumming open strings randomly? Hmmmm....Fretting would be useful, push your finger down on the string behind those little metal things and play the notes a few times......Now you can teach yourself to play.

P.S. You won't go anywhere if you just want to get girls and fame with a guitar.....You have to like playing and not give up after the first week....
