Hi, names Stephen, had a guitar for a short while but always wanted to play. Starting oldish at 63, can read (sort of) music and tabs, but chords have me completely lost, basically know some chords but it's the transition that gets me, like C to D and back again. Hoping by joining this group it'll kick start my playing into something enjoyable. Any answers regarding what you would consider the best guitar type to start with, electric or acoustic, all answers appreciated.

Hi Stephen good to see you joined I am probably not a real good one for advice but I guess I will tell you what I think and maybe someone will correct me if I mislead you I seem to find the electric guitar easier to play but it may be just guitar setup the acoustic guitar with out the cutout below the neck almost impossible to play when I get close to the 12th fret and above good luck and I am sure it will all come together Delbert

Stephen, changing chords can be a bit challenging at first. If you develop your muscle memory for where the C chord is for example. By playing the C then lifting your fingers off the strings put keeping them in place to play the chord then playing the chord your fingers will eventually automatically will go to that chord. Then do the same for the D chord. Soon you will be changing chords with no problem. Also, start the program with what was recommended when you signed up and follow that. You will again be surprised how quickly you learn if you apply the principles taught,
