So, last night I spent some time with the Guitar I bought.
It's funny how the brain works. For some reason I thought that my fingers would hurt from the strumming and couldn't understand why more people didn't use a pick to get around that issue. Boy my fingers are tender today after just maybe 20 minutes trying to play the D Chord.
On the plus side I did have some fun tuning it last night.
I am struggling to get all my fingers on the fret. My first two fingers were OK, but trying to put a third on (wedding finger) underneath is really pretty hard. My fingers are quite wonky, it's like contortionist behaviour. Also, seems the most minor thing ruins everything. Slight change in pressure on any finger etc.
I was also curious. I am right handed, but it feels as natural to me to play left handed (left hand on the fret and right hand strumming).
