New beginner

Hi
I’m Ken from Southampton and new to this forum.
I am 66yrs old and after years of wishing I could play guitar decided 6months ago to give it a go.
Looking on the internet there was so many people offering to teach but none with a structured approach, that was until I found Justin guitar and it was just what I was looking for. I am now on module 6 of beginner 1 and practicing daily, some days better than others but I know it’s not a quick thing and keep telling myself that it will come just keep practicing.
To give myself some incentive I purchased a Epiphone Gibson Les Paul and a Marshall Amp but mainly use my acoustic guitar till I get better at playing

Welcome to the forum Ken. You won’t go far wrong with Justin as 1000s have proven over the years.
Enjoy the ride.

Hey Ken, welcome to the forum. Be careful, acoustic playing can get addictive! Look forward to hearing more from you

Ken, welcome to the community forum. You have come to the right place for structured learning. You’ll be using that Epiphone Les Paul more as you progress through modules.

Welcome Ken,
I wish you a lot of fun and a lot of playing :sunglasses:

Welcome Kenny,
Pleased for you picking up your guitar again, after your 6mth sabbatical… :+1:t2::+1:t2:
Acoustic and electric will keep you busy, particularly weight training with your LP … :wink:
Plentiful opportunities for both in JG.
Have fun … :sunglasses:

Hi
Thanks for the warm welcome and all the words of encouragement.
Can anyone advise me about my chord changes it’s mainly the D chord I started with first finger second finger followed by ring finger which was fine and have managed around 60+ changes from A to D in a minute but when it comes to changing from C to D or G to D ring finger is always last to go down making my changes stutter and therefore slower .Do I need to perservere and keep practicing this sequence or is there a different way that is a quicker way of forming the D chord.
Any advice would be appreciated
Cheers Ken
