Tony John replied to mike lugo's discussion Complete Beginner who really wants to learn.
"Sound like how I started...when my brother wasn't playing it, I was. One of the main questions you have to ask is How far do you want to go with your playing? If you just want to knock out a few common tunes then any book of first position…"

Tony John replied to Newbie Dean's discussion Strum Patterns
