Your fingers at the beginning will hurt, just keep going unless they hurt TOO bad.

I taught guitar for 7 years. Second to an instructor, the best way to learn is YouTube. Learn a few really easy riffs and maybe a couple chords. Don’t waste time with exercises, scales, or reading music (besides tabs and chord charts). Learn parts of real songs you like and you’ll soar. Frequent practice is more effective than lengthy practices. Playing 5 minutes every day is better than playing two hours once a week. Electric guitar is easier than acoustic, so start with that if possible. And don’t be a perfectionist. Learn as many songs as possible, even if you suck at playing them. And post some videos of you playing. Good luck man.

For some people it’s a personal preference thing, but I recommend using your fingers instead of a pick. Also just keep practicing everyday. Even it’s just 15 minutes a day you’ll get better. Always stretch your fingers before you start, and make sure when you to have your back straight and shoulders back as you play so you don’t mess up your body with poor posture. Some of my tips.

Being a musician for almost 10 years . I think what you need is consistency…remember to play it every day for at least an hour! And Mark my words you’ll be good at it in no time ! :slight_smile:

Kinda a late response but when I was younger, I dabbled with the guitar a bit and a good tip is to make sure your finger tips get harder cuz playing the guitar will get easier when they are less sensitive so just fight though the slight pain and you got this man! :call_me_hand::call_me_hand:
