Hi Suzi - welcome to GMC! smile.gif

Great to hear you decided to learn guitar.

Here are a few very good lesson series to begin with :

* First Steps
* Beginner's Corner
* Basic Chords

My recommendation would be to go through few of them (lessons), to get oriented on guitar, and then just pick an easy lesson from the archive that sounds cool and doable to you - for example : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Los_Ramones/ smile.gif

Hi Suzi, welcome to the GMC community!

I invite you to take part in our Poll about starting the guitar playing. Here is the thread:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=47869

You will find a lot of interesting aspects there, and I'm very curious to read your answer on the Poll question.

Happy practicing! smile.gif

Yes - that is perfectly normal. Just watch out, if you feel any pain - you should stop and rest.
At start it might be a bit tense and uncomfortable to place your fingers on different chord shapes - but with some practice you will feel how your hands unlock and get used to new movements.

Hi Suzi & welcome to GMC! smile.gif I sure hope 24 is not too old to start guitar cause if that was the case, I'd be doomed! laugh.gif That's great that you have 2 hours a day to practice. I'm sure you will notice progress with that kind of schedule. Keep fired up on learning guitar & don't lose that passion! smile.gif I hope to see you in the video chats & forum!

Gary

Bogdan is right smile.gif When you feel like your fingers are asking for a break, take some time to read some theory as well -> https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...?showtopic=3351

Thank you.I only felt that tense finger thing when i changed chords but i do it slow perfectly rather than rush it and learn it wrong
