I've actually been attempting to play the guitar for over two years now, but during that time I must have picked it up for an average of about 10 minutes a week.

You don't progress very far at that rate. I know about half a dozen chords and that's it. I think I'll have to get some proper lessons and start trying harder, rather than just listening to others:

especially if you want to emulate the darkness ;)

Personally I would advise against lessons, unless pure structure is what you need to get off and running - get books, a good one is Nirvanas acoustic album which at the same time as giving you great chord changes with lots of minors, also gives you fretwork instruction.

Thanks seaneeboy!

Alfie - books I have, what I'm missing is a teacher to wrap my knuckles occasionally and tell me to get on with it. Like you say - structure.

If you know a place, group lessons are a great way to learn. I took a few guitar classes at a folk music school in Chicago and am now taking banjo, for a change of pace. The guitar classes are more about singing while playing, playing along with others, and just having fun with it, more than technique and theory and such. Maybe there's a place like that where you live...

Happy Birthday!

It's a Westfield. Which means very little to me but I'm told that's quite a good make.
