Welcome to the group, Jon. What a great way to break in a new guitar!

Been teaching myself using jamplay. Got frustrated and almost gave up until I picked up a decent guitar, and what do you know? No buzzing, no muted strings, no cramps.
My new guitar arrives tomorrow, taking it to a local shop to have it setup, then off to the beach for a week to break it in

And, by the way, welcome to the group!

That's a good word, David. You can do a lot on your own, but I, too, have found that going to a teacher at least once in awhile is very helpful. Confirms what you're doing right, helps avoid bad habits, and provides encouragement and exercises designed to help you progress in the areas that are most important for you right then.

Played around for a little less than a year with book, DVDs, etc. I was doing just OK and decided to take lessons from a very patient, very smart cat at a local guitar shop. It's made all the difference in the world. Suddenly, I find myself itching to practice. I'm getting just a bit better every week, and, best of all, the fret is suddenly making sense!
