    How ya doing? As title says, just starting out learning how to play. Getting my LP special 2 in 2 weeks, but I have a question about it. I cant seem to find that guitar on a online search anywhere. Not that its rare but thats just kinda weird. If I can figure out how to post a pic I would lol. Anyways just wanted to say hi

    Welcome Faintestidea.

    I think it's wonderful that you are taking up guitar at this stage of your life. May your learning journey be a life enriching joy!

    You will, no doubt, have technical questions as you move along. A forum like this can be a great aid to you. But, if I may make a suggestion, keep the technical side in the background.

    Yes, it can be fascinating and fun in and of itself. But it also be too easily confused with the knowledge, understanding and skill sets needed for us to become musicians. And by that I mean simply people who make music.

    If the later is your goal -- and that on any level -- than it is what needs to be focused on. Not primarily the gear.

    :)

    Welcome once you get one and start playing you will want more. I started playing last year in March ( now have 6) . I try to pick a Guitar once a day for a little . It adds up little by little you will get more control . There is alot of lessons on on U tube like Marty Shwartz and 365 guitar lessons .
