Hi I'm Angie from Arizona

Hi guys,

I’m just starting out with my guitar after an unsuccessful attempt about 20 years ago. Loving the structure of Justin’s lessons. I’m only at week 3 and the finger pain is improving a bit. My accuracy isn’t great yet but I did manage to play along with the app for the first time, standing up! One day I want to be able to finger pick, but first things first…lots of daily practice.


Welcome from another 6 weeks in. Finger pain will stop soon rest assured, mine lasted a month

Welcome to the forum, Angie! Sounds like you are definitely on the right track and your regular practice will tame those digits in no time :fire::wave::dizzy_face::wink: All the best with your journey! :slightly_smiling_face::+1:

Hello Angie, and a warm Welcome to the community :hugs:.
The finger pain will eventually disappear or at least get significantly better (after practicing more than usual, I still get sore finger tips - I’ve been playing for 9 months now).
I love finger picking, although it’s a big challenge for my old brain :sweat_smile:.
I wish you a wonderful guitar journey :smiley:.

Thanks Eddie, a bit overwhelmed with the amount I have to learn, but one step at a time
