hey im really new to guitar. is there anything special i should be doing thatll help me out? like playing certain exercises or something?

pour hot sauce in your eyes. no, but seriously, put super glue on your fingers. DO NOT PUT SPUER GLUE ON THE FRETBOARD!!!! LET IT DRY ON YOUR FINGERTIPS FIRST!!!! It is so you can develop calases so it dont hurt like a bitch when you first start. but seriously, the hot sauce in the eyes does wonders.

LEARN YOUR SCALES.
you'll be so glad you did, and they'll quickly help you in learning new songs and understanding your guitar.

Don't do that, just get used to the pain. It will stop hurting soon.


Edit: Chords are VERY important

Play all the notes on the low E string, then go to the A string and so on.

I'm sorry if this isn't what you are talking about, I know very little theory.

those open spaces represent a fret. you dont play it unless theres a mark
