    Hi Jam,

    I suggest you check out this lesson: Absolute Beginners Part One. It’s written for people who have just got their hands on their very first guitar and don’t know where to begin. I think it will help you get started more than the lesson above.

    Good luck with it. Don’t give up.

    When I try to tune my guitar my worst fear is breaking strings since I have got my guitar I have broke so many strings and it discourages me every time I try to tune my guitar
