I hope so, now im not having fun at all, im just constantly pushing myself,

To get you started, we have put together a 6-step course that will make you play in less than twenty minutes! These six lessons cover some of the basics that you need to learn on your way to become a great guitarist.

Erm. ive used like 3 hours on the first one...


Don't stress yourself out. Guitar is suppose to be fun not a chore. As OC said you won't get the exact tone as Kris due to amp settings, guitar, etc. but don't worry about that now. Worry about getting your fingers in the correct position and playing the power chord clean. If it sounds muted or isn't ringing then maybe your strumming hand is resting on the strings as you play. (I'm not 100% sure what the type of problem your having is)

You'll find as you continue playing some stuff you'll pick up rather quickly some things will require numerous hours of practice. Go at your own pace. You will have moments of frustration but just take a break, listen to some Iron Maiden, get inspired and try again smile.gif Remember have fun with it. I know your anxious to get going but a bit of patience will pay off big time down the line.

No problem YG. When I started a couple of years ago I was in the same boat so I understand your frustration. My hurdle was barre chords. Just couldn't get them no matter how hard I tried. I practiced so hard and I just couldn't get it. Was gonna give up but then one day boom barre chord after barre chord played. I was so excited. Hard work and patience pays off.

Good luck with it and even try a different lesson and go back to that one. Maybe some time away from it will help you out too. But keep us posted and keep asking questions. It's the best way to learn and GMC is a pretty supportive place and we'll help if we can smile.gif

Keep rocking smile.gif
