I've been saying for the last 15 years that one day I was going to learn how to play guitar. Ah, procrastination. I'm now 30 and starting from scratch. Recent events have really driven home to me how fragile life is and how important it is to live each day as though it were the last. No more putting things off. So, I went out this weekend and bought myself a guitar. Had my first lesson last night. Feels great to finally be doing it. I was just wondering if any of the guitar playing Forum members might have any advice for me. Anything would be appreciated. In particular, is there anything I can do to help increase the flexibility of my fingers (aside from the obvious--practicing the guitar, which I'm already doing)? Man, I never thought that it would be so painful to play a guitar. My left fingertips are sore, my right shoulder is sore, my neck was stiff as hell last night. Oh well, it's all worth it in the end. ------------------ "Imagine all the people, living life in peace..." - Imagine by John Lennon Anyone in the Vancouver Canada area interested in a meet?
