    This site is very cool, I also would like to point out Tom Dooley is a good song to use D U with for strums. I am a beginner at guitar and am getting the hang of it my fingers however hate me. Great articles though I am glad I found this gem on the web.

    Hi there,
    I’m one of these guys who’d love to play guitar fairly nice. I’ve spent hours and hours surfing in the internet searching for good guitar courses, I’ve tried them, and each time I’ve felt more and more frustated. In fact I reached to the point where I was about to give up. But then I found your great site and lessons and my hope came back.
    Your lessons are explained in such a way that learning to play guitar is fun again.
    Thanks very much indeed.
