Step 2 – Practice

Okay, I got the guitar.  It’s tuned to the appropriate notes.  I even have a pick to play with.  Now what?

Seriously.  What do I do next?

A friend recommends a website: http://www.justinguitar.com

There’s a bunch of short videos for beginners.  Guitar anatomy, body posture, how to read chords, getting in tune, etc.  It’s all hosted by a professional teacher who has over 500 hours of guitar lesson videos.  It’s completely free and based on donations.  Amazing!
