well... not completely new..I played maybe 7 years back. but even then it wasnt very much.
Im trying again cause my dad bought me a Dean Vendetta for my birthday.
I have no idea what kind of a guitar it is in comparison to my old Ibanez i sold years ago. But its definitely a sexy looking guitar..
Im posting here to meet some people that actually know how to play in hopes one day i might be able to.. lol..
I listen to stuff like Ozzy, In Flames, Soilwork, KsE, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails... i have no hopes of playing anything like that soon. but.. hopefully some day.
It took me 2 hours just to tune my guitar... but. yea...
any advice for this FNG?
other sites? lessons?
i really can barely read tablature. i have no idea what some of the sybols mean.
I couldnt tell you the difference between an E and E# that displays on my tuning guage. i never studied music in school or anything.
if a string broke on my guitar id probabaly google is and work on fixing it for days on end lol.
sooo.. i want any advice thatl help me get started. but i dont wanna stare at some lesson for 2 hours doing nothing.
i notice there are some new programs out that might help. Any recomendations? any other good sites? some starters metal songs that i can practice on? my goal is to be able to play a full song in a month or so.
if nothing else. thanks for reading? hah.

I'm still learning how to bring the metal, but my suggestion would be to pick up a guitar book that focuses on songs and theory, and maybe even one that teaches you to read music. I already knew how to read music before I started playing guitar and it's been super helpful.
You can start playing songs right away with tab, but it's worth it to learn things correctly the first time. If you don't, you'll have to go back and break yourself of bad habits like I did.
Quick lesson on E# . Basically, the# and the b are symbols for "sharp" and "flat" respectively. E# means the note is between E and F, higher than E but not high enough to be a Fb. There's a more technical explanation, but that's the basics there.
