I have two paid resources available to me: Justin guitar and Guitar Tricks. Justin starts off by immediately having ya learn chords and using those chords to learn to play along with songs, each stage adds more chords, and strumming patterns, and eventually adds on some easy scales, power chords and the 12-bar blues. Guitar Tricks starts with learning how to use one finger per fret, first on just the high E string then adding a string with subsequent lessons, which you then have a made up song that you play along with. Also scales thrown in the mix to help gain some dexterity, coordination and build up some muscles in the fingers. I started on the Justin course and now have a bunch of chords down and beginning to learn some power chords and the minor pentatonic scale. The biggest upside to the Justin course is you get to play along with a very long list of simplified pop/rock/country songs, and you can slow down the speed of the song to help practice the chord changes. I’ve started doing the Guitar tricks course, which is not nearly as fun as Justin, but I’m guessing it may be the better method for gaining dexterity and forcing you to gain speed faster (there’s no way to slow down the songs you play along with), it also teaches how to read tab from the very beginning, vs Justin which is more like guitar hero with the notes shown and the time to play them. anyways, I’m 3+ months into playing and getting better every day, but I’d love to here your opinions on what method you see as being more valuable in the long run.
