Hi everyone, are there some MyLotters who have seen the 'August Rush'. August Rush is a typical music drama. I was lost in those so amazing guitar music that I wanna play guitar myself. What's more, I dreamt to play guitar and sing songs when I was a little boy. Pity that, even I tried to persuade myself to learn several time, but I haven't made it eventually. And now, I am also worried about that learning guitar is time and money consuming. Time is the very thing I don't have much since I've got my work everyday. I really love playing guitar. Guys, what do you think I can do? And how long does it cost to learn playing guitar in your opinion? I am in bad need of your suggestions. Thank you! Have a nice day!

the hardest part about playing the guitar is being able to play the chords. i learned playing the guitar online by looking at tabs and chords. so as long as i have the chords, i can play the song. probably the hardest part is being able to play certain chords either because of the different positions. anyways, try going to http://mxtabs.net for a bunch of songs.

if you already have the guitar, then you can learn to play guitar for free. i got an acoustic guitar for Christmas and am teaching myself how to play the guitar. i found a website that teaches you how to play the guitar for free. i practice 15 minutes a day and am already playing songs that i hear on the radio, such as "the gambler". i'm not playing as good or as fast as they do on the radio, but at least i can play better than before getting the guitar. another option for getting free lessons for guitar is to take books out of the library to teach you to play
