About time you joined!!! wink.gif

Start fresh, from the bottom, with complete newbie stuff. That way you could pick up things you should have learned but missed. Then find your level.

A great place to start is the Where to start topic of Andrew's Theory Board

Welcome to GMC =)

As mentioned, the best place to start is on the bottoms of the stairs. You never know which steps you might have jumped over.. Such as relaxing your wrists to prevent injury wink.gif

Welcome!

I'd suggest learning some basic lessons to start off, and maybe read some of Andrew's theory lesons at the theory board.

As for scales I suggest you start learning the pentatonic scale boxes, maybe start practicing those patterns slowly as a warm up, then jump to some lesons.

Most of important of all, have lots of fun smile.gif

Welcome to GMC.
You should focus first in grabbing and playing with much confort as possible, and it is a good idea to post your vid playing if you have any trouble.

Welcome man!!.
Try to start recognizing your instrument. All the notes along the fretboard, coordination, knowing which string hit, stuff like that. Then, try to focus on the theory, so you can play what your learning wink.gif

Welcome to GMC smile.gif

If you're having trouble with timing I recommend this lesson https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/how-to-use-a-metronome.htm

Maybe you should wait with it if you aren't comfortable with playing guitar yet, but you always add it to bookmarks for later use smile.gif
