Great advice Dean!

Welcome, Mark..........This is a GOOD site to get started, no bad questions here.  The best thing a buddy of mine told me is to learn chords in a "progression"; eg, G-Em,C,D.  With those 4 chords, you can play a BUNCH of songs.  That's how I got started being able to play songs early on.  Chordie is my favorite site for songs.  I try to look for songs that I know and have at least one NEW chord for me to learn (stretch).  KEEP IT FUN, Dean

Hey Mark,

Welcome!  You are among friends!  Try going to and looking up a favorite song of yours.  You will get the lyrics and chords and since you already know the tune (since it's one of your favorites) just work on it until you get it!  Some songs have harder chords than others, so start with a simple favorite and you'll go!

Hi all.  I'm very newbie.  Bought my Fender acoustic/electric last year & really want to get serious about learning to play.  So far just picking up some basic chords & learning to strum.  Any suggestions on where to go on this site if your a beginner? Thanks.

Welcome Scott!

That sounds close to what we do Walt, but we just play our individual stuff, and people can jam with ya.
I kind of like the format you described. There would probably be a lot of 12-bar going on if we gave that a try.
