Hi People 

I should be taking delivery of my CBG in the next few days.

I'm a complete beginner!

I've approached a local guitar teacher here in Guernsey and has never seen before? 

While I'm happy to have lessons I'm wondering if I'm better of in fact teaching myself the basics and then once I find some holes in my skill set. Then I can go to him with more specifics on what I need to learn?

Some order of steps to follow and learn and material I need to look and order would be really cool :D

My wife plays piano mandolin and the dulcimer.

Many Thanks 

Glen.

Hey Glen,

Your post prompted me to finally get around to writing a review of my experience of learning CBG online and wrote up a review of the site I mentioned above.  Take a look.

Have a go at youtube, make your own judgements. I guarantee you however that there is a quantum difference between what you'll find there and what you'll get from a qualified, experienced teacher, whether it be online or face to face. 

And Barsymes...can't find your blog.

Oh hey Patrick,

Just checked out the blog and I must have accidently ticked one of the privacy settings.  Should work now.
