Hello everyone. I am Stephen from Hampshire on the sometimes sunny south coast of the UK. Just returning to guitar after a looooooooong time not playing, and am just starting to work my way through the beginners lessons to get back into it - especially the music theory section.
Hopefully there will be a beginners forum that I can populate with my questions.
Every lesson on the website has a discussion tab that is a direct line to the corresponding thread here. So no need for a specific beginner forum, as this Community covers it all. And any questions are visible to all and there is a vast array of experience and knowledge to draw down on.
If you have a query that may not be lesson specific, take a stab at which category section to post it in and the mods will move it if necessary but you’ll soon find your way around.
Welcome Stephen, so nice to have you here .
Justin Guitar is a fantastic place to restart your guitar journey, and this wonderful community offer you additional support and encouragement if needed .
I wish you lots of fun with your six-string-friend and look forward to hearing more from you .
Morning Phil. Thanks for the message. Yes I’m just up the road from you near Emsworth. And yes, have been enjoying finding my way around the community site, and completing some lessons to get me back into playing.
Stephen, welcome to the community forum. Don’t forget to look at the song video lessons for beginner grades. Justin usually starts with beginner strums (1 to 4 strums to the bar), but usually adds an additional section with more sophisticated strums, so you get to see the application of a variety of strum patterns.
