Justin guitar, Marty music on YouTube, Rocksmith 2014(new version is iffy). r/guitar as well are a few I have used learning later in life over the past couple of years. Good luck and yes your fingers will hurt like hell.

Wow that's pedal porn! 😮 I'm afraid I won't be good enough for those for a while yet, but I'll keep it in mind. I'm still trying to figure out getting an extension for my JBL headphones to go into the amp so I don't kill my neighbors

Hey, so another option I highly suggest is to use amp simulators. For $100 or less you can get a device called an audio interface which always you to plug your guitar in and then to your computer. Then you can put some headphones in the interface and have TONS of different virtual amps and pedals.

Thanks! I remember my fingers hurting, but now I rock climb, which also hurts your fingers (and hands, and arms, and feet) so I'm okay with this 🤘But as long as I can pick up the guitar and shred one day, it will be worth it! 🎸🎸🔥🔥 And yes, I'm on r/guitar but lurking at the moment.

I am on r/guitar now and oh my god, so much info and so many questions! I'm having fun. The first song I want to play seems like it's wayyyy, wayyy too hard for me rn. My guitar delivery got delayed till Tuesday the 23rd so I'll wait and see, because I thought I'd be picking at it by now.
