Hey there. Welcome to ultimate guitar. what kinda music do you like? and what chords do you already know? there are tons of lessons on here so it may be a little difficult to find which ones are good for you

Hey dude, posts like this belong in this thread

If we didn't have that thread, this whole forum would be spammed with these kinds of threads

one thing that helped me was getting a chord chart. you can get them almost anywhere with posters (i think mine came from walmart(but music stores would be the best first choice)). I cannot tell you haw many times i have needed to figure out a chord and just looked over on my wall to the chart.

in summary: chord chart=loads of help.
welcome.

it sounds like you are off to a good start by learning your open position chords and beginning to learn the pentatonics. Remember that barre chords and power chords can move anywhere on your fretboard in the same position. Because guitar is such a broad art, you should ask in *exact* ways what you might want help with...for example, which hand, left or right do want advice on hand position? Is there a technique that an artist you like does that you don't know how to do? A certain sound that you don't know how to make? etc, etc.

But like everyone else said, welcome to UG! and remember you can post specific questions about technique in the Guitar and Bass Basics section.

it all depends on how big of a stretch you want...but for say a regular scale, it should only take you a few months at most...but again, that all depends on how fast your muscle memory is.
