    Hi Rachel, I wanted to thank you for your turorials! I’ve Started playing since 4th of September. Keep up the good advice. And Indeed it goes with ups and downs. Then again, like today, i’ve repeated some chords and it came with ease while otherdays i was struggling. A Piece of advice for the community, learn something easy as ‘happy birthday’ in the beginning, you won’t feel like a complete idiot and set an endgoal such as ‘respect the wind - van halen’. In between learn some chords and find some songs that uses it. Practise with fun, that’s all that matters. You’re a great inspiration Rachel, thank’s again. 40 Years old dude from Belgium.

    I've always wanted to be able to sing and accompany myself with guitar, and I finally did it in April this year! I've been learning much faster the more I practiced. Your channel really has motivated me to keep going, so I really want to thank you for that!❤❤❤

    Enjoy the process and if you're like me be ok that you can only play the easy version of your favourite song for now. In time and with the commitment I'm sure that I will take it up a level or more. I love putting time into the guitar and doing something positive and challenging and getting a sense of reward when I finally nail something.

    I've played guitar for 4 months now, while I do play classic guitar, I am impressed with myself on learning finger style pretty early on. Learning to play notes by ear goes a long way.

    You can plug your guitar in your amp if it's a electric acoustic, and use a distortion pedal on the acoustic. It's pretty cool

    Your channel is so refreshing. Instant sub! My favorite guitar youtubers are optimistic and honest, and you are the epitome of that. Today, my progress was getting an arpeggio exercise up and down the entire neck from 60 to 100 BPM. I would like to double that tempo by Monday. Another thing I want to do this week is learn "Roll over Beethoven" by Chuck Berry, as well as George Harrison's version! I love rockabilly/early rock and roll and am trying to make getting good at that style my focus right now (though I like just about every style of guitar music).

    You can get an Epiphone Les Paul Jr. and a Line 6 Spider IV both legitimately for under $100. But I would personally recommend a Squier strat/mustang/tele and a Blackstar Fly 3

    I started learning guitar over 50, so my achievement is to have the courage to start learning. I experience the same things you mention about the learning process. I don't know your channel yet, but you seem so positive and as a female I can relate more to other woman guitarists. I will subscribe.

    Cheat Sheet: 9:06 1.) Get a general idea of the song 2.)Learn the solo at a (slow speed) 3.)Work on getting it to (full speed) of the song! -if this helped you save time, I wouldn't mind if you subbed to my channel XD

    you're playing simple strokes -- per string - per chords .... try playing the blues -- it requires major and minor notes .. if you can play this -- then I will believe you are a guitar player ... good luck ... btw --- you play very well for a beginner ...

    I got my first guitar 10 months ago, I couldn't even play one chord without taking a 5 second break and looking at the fretboard, now I can play most of my favorite songs, I'm a Green Day fan and their songs are not that hard so I'm ok :) , I play acoustic and electric guitar, but I still have some problems with timing and strumming, I think I overlooked those two important things, wish I knew that before, but I'm trying my best to get it done

Hopefully that made sense. Thx

  • MrTehnoobshowfan
    MrTehnoobshowfan 3 days ago

    So..hear me out. Huge guns n roses fan, slash and his music has been my inspiration to even pick up a guitar for the first time. I went out and bought a guitar about a year back, played it for a few weeks, learned the sweet child intro but it was sloppy and mediocre, and it was all I knew so I put it down and didnt pick it up again. About 3 months back I started wondering what could have been if I kept playing, so I went shopping and bought a les paul copy. My interest had been re-ignited. I went right back to sweet child intro, and could do it still pretty well. Then I started watching TONS of videos and lessons about music theory and scales and have been practicing every day for several hours a day. I got new pickups, new tuners, and got my les paul copy all set up, and just today I went back and watched the videos I took of my playing sweet child intro sloppily, when I first got my guitar. now I can play the intro in the dark and the entire song up til the solo, which Im in the process of learning now but I feel like I’ve come a long way and I still am enjoying it very much

    • MrTehnoobshowfan
      MrTehnoobshowfan 3 days ago

      And thats just one song! Ive also learned tons of riffs, and my playing has come so far. I cant exactly afford lessons at the moment but it hasnt mattered cause my desire to learn has overthrown my situation and Im making it happen anyways and having tons of fun in the process. It’s become a way to unwind too at the end of the day or whenever Im just fully appreciating the instrument and enjoying it

    Hey hi! Ive been learning guitar for about 4 months at the age of 42. Loving learning and playing everyday. Struggling at the moment transitioning from a d chord to a g chord. Always have that uncomfy pause as i switch but when i look back at a video of my first week the progress is incredible. Really cool channel!!

  • Jerome Terry
    Jerome Terry 3 days ago

    499 days ago (May 8, 2018), I picked up a guitar for the first time at the age of 40. Always was envious of those who could play guitar, so I decided I wanted to learn. I have practiced every day - 499 days in a row and still going. I'm having so much fun. I started off learning using Marty Schwartz then switched to Justin Guitar. Used Justin Guitar on my own for 11 months before I got a guitar teacher to help me learn lead / blues guitar. Now I own 4 guitars, 2 amps, and record myself regularly to track my progress. I still have a long way to go, but I enjoy playing / learning guitar. Here's my guitar leaning progress videos on my channel. ru-clip.com/video/bNOlw3T_ZPE/video.html

    I have been playing for a year and a half now. I bought myself a new guitar at the beginning of the summer and the first thing I did was tackle a solo that I have always wanted to learn and is one of the reasons i picked up the guitar in the first place. That solo being the one from holy diver by dio. It was a great feeling the first time i played it without making a mistake.

    I have days where my fingers feel like they’ve stopped working but on the flip side, there are those great days when you suddenly realise you’re playing something much faster and more cleanly than you’ve ever managed before, after weeks of appearing to make no progress. By the way, what’s going on with the changing light behind the door? Continuity!!! :p
