Enjoyed the video. I know this was posted a while back, so how is coming along? Are you still playing and enjoying it?

The only thing that worked for me was to find a friend or relative that can play some songs.
the more varied the better.
Mine were a bartender that loved Jonny Cash and had an original Gibson Humming bird
A cousin that liked 50's rock n roll
and various others of differing styles and genres
For me I could study as many books, and watch just as many videos
until I could play along, watch their movements, make mistakes, catch up, try to keep up
it didn't make sense
good luck - keep at er

Get a do-it-yourself book from the library. Do the chords. Start with A, Em, D. Do a little at a time.... you can do it!

Hi Folks!

CINDERRELIC...I saw on your SparkPage that you play mandolin!

I've been teaching myself mandolin since 12-11-11....first ever trying to play anything. I love every minute of it.

Hope you won't mind if I post this video of my playing as of this morning. A LONG ways to go but enjoying the journey.

Maybe more of you could post vids of your playing ....I'd love to see that!

There are a lot of approaches to learning to play a guitar.
If you are teaching yourself you need to start with a chord book
Many people prefer finding a teacher near them so that they can interact with someone who may help them to avoid technical errors in learning to play and save time in learning.
