No problem asking questions - thats what the board is here for! Are you planning on getting that guitar setup? If not, you should.

Woohoo! Great day! :D

Ask and ask and ask... and play and play and play... 8)

And don't get too discouraged by those 'lovers tiffs' and awkward times you'll have along the way. :P If my guitar was a girlfriend she'd have given me a few black eyes along the way... and possibly got a slap or two back.. it can get a little tense at times... but the good times are sooooo sweet. It's all worth it. :wink:

I've got the SB model 2 and ofcourse I love it. I predict that you and your gear are gonna have some great times together.

well, my first obstacle as per my beginner's dvd was to learn the seven major chords. after about two hours of repetition tonight i memorized them.

then for the next two hours i decided to play through them and try to get my fingers to be able to make a switch, but i find i am not yet nearly dexterious enough to go from one chord to another. i can go from b throguh g to a and have it sound clean, but other than that and it's not even worth trying at this point.

a jump from anything to b, or anything to c just isn't happening yet.

then i took a break and played with the distortion and pedal settings just to give my mind a break.

then i repeated the original lesson for another hour.

and now the tips of the fingers on my left hand are about ready to fall off.

but it is awesome nonetheless

What DVD did you get?

Oh, and did you have to setup your guitar? Or was it all setup from the start?

Good set up, congrats! You seem to have started quite a practice regimen, that;s great. Just remember playing guitar is about having fun, too.
It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!
