Hey there,

My name is David Demarr, i'm here because of a recent passion i've discovered. It all started with guitar hero mainly, it calms me down, is peaceful, and relieves stress. Obviously guitar hero is nothing like the real thing so i decided to drop that old game and start out on the real deal. I've recently purchased a squire strat black and pearl with all of the accessories. I'm interested in rock/blues/and eventually metal.

I've purchased a membership here and its been working great, today is my first real day practicing. I've already learned every part and how its used, now i'm just having trouble with the musical theory and holding/strumming the notes.

let me know what you think of any recommendations on anything that would help smile.gif

thanks,
Dave

dont start with music theory yet. just get comfortable and learn the very basics. I recommend going to the absolute beginner lessons on the video lessons link above. besides that welcome to the community mrdave2u!

I agree with sigma, start with some beginner lessons before theory. Try this one:

and this one...

Welcome and Good luck!
