I envy you. Self-taught. When I started playing, my parents got me a book of dummied down Beatles songs that had the chord shapes written in. It really helped learning songs I was already intimately familiar with. Eventually I branched out and learned techniques from just about anything I listened to:Floyd, Metallica, Kiss, anyone that was doing something I wasn't.

Imagine teaching yourself to play guitar. It's easy if you try. Above us only sky. (The sort of thing John Lennon would probably have to say on the matter).

You should give it a try. It's so rewarding even if you do get sore fingers on the fretting hand for a while.

I'm currently teaching myself to play. No-one told me it would hurt so much!!!! Yeeeeeooooowwww, but worth the pain. I learn from books and online lessons, don't seem to be making much progress but I'll definitely stick with it. I'm sure one day it'll all fall into place.
