Congratulations! I, too, had a hard time learning how to play it, but I managed. I learned by checking the chord chart off a music book. How about you? I think the hardest thing was how to change chords.

oh yeah ,at first i just couldn't change it as fast as i wanted,so i practiced and practiced until i could change these chords at my will.besides i think the rhythm was also the hardest thing to me .

Good for you that you made your dream come true. I think when someone wants something bad enough they will find a way to make it happen. I think when someone has to work for it they appreciate it more and practice more. I bought my daughter a guitar but I can not afford the lessons. I bought her a book and a cd to help her. She says it is to hard and she won't hardly practice. I told her that if she wanted it bad enough she would practice more and she would find a way to learn. My grandpa knows how to play and offered to help her but she don't like him telling her to practice this lesson till you can do it faster and right. I told her a teacher would be the same way. They are not going to let you move on till you know the lesson. Most kids today want something but don't want to put the effort into it. I think it is great that you wanted it and made it happen. Congrats to you.

Congratulations William for a job well done. When I was 14 years old I also want to take up guitar lessons but since it will cost my parents another expenses. They just brought me a new guitar for my birthday. For one month, I learned how to play guitar with the help of my friends and the chord chart. The chord chat is user friendly and a lot of help for beginners. The only problem is i hate mixing my guitars tune.

Wow, I want to say first, that I am so sorry that you and your family had it so hard. Two, I love the fact that they way you came up didn't hold you back, but instead, you had more drive to get what you wanted. I just think that it is so weird how two people can meet by taking totally different road. I did have it hard coming up too, but I had drive like you do. I see that you have a love for the guitar and that it probably brings you joy. I hope that it brings you great joy knowing that you just inspired me to learn how to play the guitar even more!!! Thank you.... ~Keenan Thanks for listening And please read about my guitar story.

I grew up with 2 parents who played guitar...when I was 12 I decided I would learn how to play. my dad tried teaching me some basics but most of it I learned on my own as he was always traveling. good luck with your musical pursuits!
