Newb here saying hello.

Just picked up a starter Yamaha acoustic 4 weeks ago and haven't put it down since.

Looking forward to learning from this forum.

Welcome Tom and glad you are enjoying your new guitar.


Those who can't dance always blame the band.

Welcome Tom gald to see you join! :D
What kind of music do you like to play Tom?
I grew up listening to classic rock /rock (Stones, Zeppelin, Van Halen-Lee Roth, The Who, U2). I still enjoy those bands but also listen to a lot of new bands/artists. My iPod looks like it has an identity crisis. Cold Play, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Sarha Mclachlan, Eminiem, Seal, CSN/CSNY, Maroon 5, Sinead Oconnor in addition to the bands I grew up with.

Four weeks in I can play and sing one song fairly well!! Mad World, Gary Jules cover (Em, G, D, A). That's where the good news ends. I'm still having trouble with the C chord progression. Any chord going to C is a challenge. I hope it clicks in the next few weeks.

I read somewhere that breakthroughs come in spoonfulls and not in 5 gallon buckets. I must have some really small spoons.
