  1. I know the following chords (well, I know where to put my fingers) G, CAdd9, C, D, E, E minor, and A...I am trying to learn how to play Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life). It only uses G, CAdd9, D, and E Minor. I cannot for the life of me, switch from CAdd9 (or any other chord from that matter) to D. D has been very tough for me. I can switch FROM D to other chords, but going TO D, has been extremely tough. Does anyone have any tips? I have been practicing this same song for about a total of 2 weeks and am doing OK until I get to the D. The chord Progression basically goes:
  2. To answer some of the questions... 1. I am 34 2. I like classic rock, alt rock, blues, jazz, pop rock, acoustic singer/songwriter type music Some of my favorite bands/artists for reference: Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Mayer, Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson, Maroon 5, Metallica, REM I really want to just focus on learning songs for now to be able to play along with coworkers and friends that play guitar or other instruments. However, I would love to be able to improvise and be creative with my own stuff. It is also VERY important to me to be able to sing and play at the same
  3. I just bought my first guitar last week and have been using justinguitar as my learning source. Someone here in my "First Guitar" thread mentioned Learn and Master guitar so that is another option. Before I purchased that course, I just wanted to start a thread to see if people had any other suggestions of courses/sites/dvds/books to learn guitar before I drop $250 on the L&M class. Thanks in advance!
  4. Thanks for all the kind words guys. Well I am taking informal lessons/direction from a co-worker of mine. She has been playing for 30 years and is helping me get started. She actually sold me a VOX Valvetronix VT30 for $50. She has 5 amps and did not need it. Just bought it to try out the modeling. So, that should get me going anyway. Is justinguitar.com a good source for learning? I have been making my way through his beginner course and I am enjoying it so far.

The first 2 reps said they had no idea what electronics it had. However, I just spoke to a 3rd rep that seems to think those sites are wrong, and that it has Alnico Classic Humbuckers.
  6. Hello, I am new here. I got my first ever guitar today. It is a used, Epiphone Les Paul Standard Limited Edition Mahogany Worn Cherry guitar. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what Humbuckers this guitar has? Some sites say 650r/700t some sites say Alnico Classic. Also, this is (I am assuming) an all Mahogany guitar. How does this affect the sound as opposed to the Mahogany with a Maple top? What would be a good beginner amp to pair with this guitar? (one that would produce some clean sounds). How does this compare to a regular Epi LP standard? Sorry for all the que
