On topic posts only please.
Im in kinda the same boat. I started lessons in fall, after years of trying myself. There have been times I feel like im just spinning my wheels, and not going anywere... I have found that if I do one of a few things it helps... first if you are in a rut doing the same song.... step back and find the part you dont do as well as you think you should.... brake it down, and slowly work through it... ALso try going back a month or so, and working on somehting you did in the past.... try to polish it up a bit... maybe work on a part that you fought with at the time. Or just take a day and play.... have fun, try to make up a tune, or change around a few others your working on.. All of these have hellped me when I have struggled a bit.

I've been where you are, just keep practicing. Little by little it will feel more natural. It takes one step at a time to climb a mountain.
Start right down the list of forums...you said "hello"...now there's the beginner's spot...then under that more 'n more questions as each and every light bulb ('scuse me, I meant light-GLOBE) goes off over your head. I've seen plenty of other music-related sites, but this one rules for guitars.
When I was a kid your age, my goal was to MASTER one note a week. Chase one note a week absolutely everywhere it can possibly exist on the fretboard. Take it off one chord at a time, most conveniently, the E is a great place to start on a six string. Learn the chord and where all those little baby "E's" are...chew through all the notes from an E chord...
That's Cat's Fax 102! Cat's Fax 101 is now under Q&A...
I will certainly go back over certain parts of songs and master where the chords are on every bit of the fret board, and that seems like a better lesson then i have been having lately and it cost alot less then Â£25 an hour. Thanks again guys
