I'm a girl from Hong Kong, aged 20. Been introduced to guitar playing for half a year but never really got serious, until summer came around and I decided to see how far I can go. I've gone through the beginner's lessons so far and I'd say they're easy to follow, maybe because some of the skills introduced there I had already come across before, and now I wonder where I should go next.

My favourite band is Funeral for a Friend- it'd be cool to be able to play some guitar like that. I used to like Blink-182 too, some punk rock and stuff like that. I guess my biggest problem now is I always don't know which finger to use and how to move them around the fretboard. I can get really confused with that sometimes.

So, any suggestions?

Nice meeting you guys here!

Hi, even i listen to funeral for a friend, blink 182, sum 41, green day and other punk bands.

Heres a list of songs you should practice (in order of difficulty even though they're fairly easy):
-Dammit by Blink 182
-Time of your life green day
-Motivation by Sum 41
-Smells like teen spirit by Nirvana
-The Anthem by Good Charlotte
-Fat lip by Sum 41
-The easiest song: Eruption by Van Helen tongue.gif

Note: Ignore the Sum 41 solos for now and just stick to the power chords and the notes

Good luck!!!!

also if you're into that kind of punk stuff, Sum 41's "In Too Deep" is a good one for picking technique and powerchords. Also, the solo has some triplets, pulloffs, hammers, and bends. All good techniques to learn and it's not too difficult. It was one of the first songs I ever learned. smile.gif
