I am 34 and FINALLY pushed myself to learn guitar after wanting to know how to play for the past 15 years or so. As a massive music fan who enjoys listening to almost anything and love the feeling I get from hearing a great song, I had always wanted to learn, but never, ever acted on it. Until I casually mentioned to my wife in the fall that I had decided that I wanted to learn guitar and she bought me an acoustic one for Xmas.
I have only been playing for about 3 months but feel I have come a long way in that time . . . I am anxious to learn more and develop, but it most certainly seems a daunting task...
I recommend checking out his YT channel. I think it's been mentioned ad nauseum, but I'll plug it once more! He has some great tips/exercises/advice for beginners and I have found it helpful in the short time I have been playing:http://www.youtube.com/user/JustinSandercoe
