Im learning how to play guitar with a wah pedal. It is actually kind of hard to get used to if you have never used one before.

I only had one lesson in music. It was my father teaching me the basic A,G,C,D,& E chords. After that, I learned everything myself.

This is not "sonic gossip". It ought to be in "non-sonic sounds" or "non-sonics".

Unless you're Kim, Thurston, Lee or Steve, that is.

Yea, I got a bass a few years ago.... and then a guitar like 2 yrs ago, but but I didn't really try to learn anything until recently. Sor yrs of fucking with tabs and bass and then getting used to a guitar I learned my basic chords and then go from there.

I just bought a guitar last week, can't play for shit and spending a couple of hours a day just trying to get to grips with a basic E chord. How does ANYBODY get even half way decent on this instrument?

it takes time for your hand muscles to get used to the positions and fingerings. after a while you don't even think about it.

My muscles are still getting used to it, & I've been playing for 11 years now. Making those power chords for a long stretch of time is never easy.

my advice for guitar players who want to learn some songs.
play nirvana songs most likely the easiest songs to play.

It's true. Those were the first songs I started to use power chords in. But, give Kurt alot of credit, he was one of the best punk lead guitar playeres of all time. He did great little solo's that I could never get the hang of trying to learn it.
