Default I Suppose I'll Introduce Myself... I Guess.

Hi,

I love music and I want to be able to learn guitar but I struggle to keep myself motivated and I thought that maybe if I try introducing myself here and stuff, I might find some support and encouragement or something... but I'm not counting on it.

I like being creative, and I do sorta make music (if that's what you want to call it) with a kind of MIDI synthesizer program thing. I don't understand music theory, I just make what I think sounds good to me.
I especially like to make melodies rather than harmonic sounds, so maybe that's why I struggle with guitar 'cos it's main purpose is playing chords.

I'm not that great at social situations. I'm definitely not as bad as I was before though. I think that as I've gotten older, I've become less self-conscious about myself. I'm still extremely shy and quiet, but I'm a bit more accepting of that now.
So in other words, I don't have guitar lessons and I don't know anyone who can play guitar to learn from.

I like to play video games - mainly console games - especially adventure, platforming and free-roaming games, but I'll play any genre if it has an interesting story.

I suppose some important details about me might be that I'm a girl somewhere between the ages of 17-22 years old and I like chocolate.

Um yeah, that's about all I can think of.

Uuugh, is that enough about me? This whole "introducing yourself" thing is so awkward...

Welcome in artic_fox. One good thing about a forum is that if you are shy and quiet, you can contribute to a thread when you are ready. Guitar is a great instrument to learn and can be very relaxing. The guitar's main purpose isn't just for chords, its for making beautiful music. While you are learning to play guitar I would strongly suggest learning theory. I think theory is very interesting. The most important thing is having fun while you are learning guitar.

Welcome We all have to start somewhere. Mostly a state of mind getting going. If you think you can't you wont, if you think you can, it will get better.

Welcome to the forum. This is a good place to get info. There are newbies and oldies, amateurs and pros, and everything in between. Playing guitar is the only place you're allowed to steal and its OK. Take everything you learn and put it in a pile because its all going to be useful info at some point.

Hi arctic_fox. It's good to have a talent for melodies. I wish I was better at melody.
