      Hi

      How much do you already know? One of the first things you want to be able to do is to play basic chords and you can use our Absolute Beginner Chord lesson to do that.

      Looking forward to chatting with you again.

      Peace

    I am really stressed out. I decided to buy a guitar as I wanted a hobby and I love the sound. Im 21 though and worry its too late to start? My guitar is second hand. I cant afford lessons. I tried tuning the guitar myself, causing each string to snap? I really dont have a clue and feel like quitting before starting? It all sounds foreign to me. My neice has tried with me and handed me a sheet with one direction wwhat makes you beautiful on it which has no chords- whatever they are. Please help?

      If you’re that stressed out, the first thing you have to do is get to a point where you’re not. That may sound harsh but the calmer you are and the more you can think about things the easier learning will be easier. If you truly “feel like quitting before starting” you’re obviously in a mindset that’s totally unhelpful to learning (not to mention to yourself) and you have to discover some way to be calm enough to learn and to make mistakes, because there’s no way you’re not going to make mistakes. Everyone does when learning.

      The next step is to get your guitar in tune (don’t worry about it being secondhand – the majority of guitar players start out on a used, borrowed or otherwise inherited instrument). Have you replaced the snapped guitar strings? If not, take it to a music store and buy some strings and ask if they’ll show you how to put them on. Chances are likely they’ll be more than happy to do so, provided the place isn’t too busy and the person who does it has some free time. They will also tune it for you and you should watch that, too. And buy a tuner if you haven’t done so already. It is an investment that will last a lifetime.

      When you’ve got both your mindset and your guitar ready start with a few basic chords, which you can find in our Absolute Beginner Chord lesson . This will help get you started.

      Hope this helps and I look forward to hearing how things are going.

      Peace
