Re:anyone know how to play guitar?



I know this is a little off topic, but i read in another post that you have LCA, which is very cool because thats also what i have :). I love finding people with the same condition as me. Anyway, you would start the song by putting your ring finger on the A string, third fret which is note C, your middle finger on the D string second fret which is note E, and have your pointer on the B string first fret which is high C. You play the G string open. Together those notes are a C chord. If you listen to the song, it starts by the low and the high C playing at the same time, and then a combination of the notes in the middle. For now thats all i got lol. Hopefully someone els can tell you more about the song, and correct my mistakes if there are any :).

Re:anyone know how to play guitar?



i can play a little bit,i took lessons when i was in 4th grade and i still play a little bit I've had to re teach myself all over again since i used to rely completely on sight for it. i remember several chords and my cousin taught me power chords on his electric last time i was at his house.
I'm glad your looking in to learning it its a fun instrument. i wish you the best of luck with it, I'd be willing to offer anything i could help you with.
What kind of guitar do you have electric or acoustic?


Re:anyone know how to play guitar?



I play, and have for about two years now. I could talk you through it, but I'd need your phone number, and we would not be able to give our phone numbers on here. Try posting on the water cooler message board, give me your number, and I will try to help you to the best of my abilities.

Re:anyone know how to play guitar?



I know how to play, enough to sound decent anyway lol. I could teach you. If you don't already know how the strings are set up when they are in toon, starting at the big string closest to you the notes are; e, a, d, g, b and then high e. My favorite chord is an A chord, because all you really have to do is use your pointer finger to cover 3 strings while strumming the A string open. Thats how i do it anyway, and it works for me.
