welcome Zack! You should start around the beginner's lessons...a good one to start with is Gabriel's John Frusciante solo...very easy yet satisfiying. Or you could browse around the different chord lessons to get familiar with them. (really there's too many to chose from)....tongue.gif

Welcome Zack! There are lessons for everything you need so just spend some time browsing around and be sure to check Kris's basic lessons and alternate picking lessons before moving onto something more difficult!

Practice hard and enjoy your staying!

Gday Zack

Mate its good that youre here a 2 months in. You wont fall for the common trap of trying to get speed before mastering technique. Take it from me it takes alot of time to fix when you get those two things back to front.

Have fun. Practice lots. smile.gif
