  1. Thanks everyone for the information. My acoustic is in good shape. I may get a professional "setup", but other than that it's good. I think I will stick with that for now. Once I get better I'll spring for an electric. I am still in session 2 so I have a ways to go. I know I'm only playing Jingle Bells and simple stuff, but it is pretty cool to be able to play something that sounds like a song. Thanks again for the info. Jeff
  2. Does anyone have any suggestions which is better to use while going through this course? Electric or Acoustic? Thanks for any suggestions. I currently have an acoustic.
  3. Oh cool. I thought they were just CDs. I’ll have to check out the videos. Thanks!
  4. Ha! Yeah. When I opened the book I saw the full version, then when I woke up and was able to steady my legs again I saw the short version.
  5. Hey Sandy, Thanks for the information and encouragement! I will definitely enjoy the journey. My home life is pretty busy, so my guitar time is my "me" time to relax and do something I enjoy. I really like the videos with Steve. He makes it seem so personable. Like I'm actually taking a lesson from him. Well I guess I am, but you know what I mean. I also like this guitar gathering site. It is so great to know that there is a whole community on her that is ready and eager to help if I have questions or problems. Thank you to you, Steve, and everyone on her that makes this such a wonderful learning experience and environment. Maybe I'll update you a once and a while on my progress. Still fiddling around in session 1. I bought the hit songs book and Cd's also. I can play (the term play used very loosely) "You Got It" by Roy Orbison and "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar. Anyway, I'm having a great time. Jeff
  6. Hey Ozy. I would be interested in your progress. I just recently started this program a couple of days ago. It would be nice to have someone to converse with that is going through the same steps and sessions I’m going through. I am currently on session 1. I am getting the hang of it and can do the exercises quicker everyday, but I’m going to stick on it for at least two weeks. What session are you currently on, and if past it, how long did you stay on session 1? Jeff
  7. Hey that’s great. You are an inspiration. I too have always thought that I did not have the talent to play the guitar. I just started the program last night. I’m excited to learn. I hope to be able to play as well as you some day. Thanks. I’ll look back on your post when I get frustrated or want to give up. Not if but when because I’m sure it will happen. Thanks for the motivation. Jeff
  8. I just started tonight. I’m pretty excited. I’ve been wanting to learn guitar for a very long time. Any tips for a beginner? Is there anyone out there that has actually completed this course?
