Plenty to read and amuse you here, and lots to learn and share. rWNVV2D.gif

Maybe indicate your location..? There may be a tutor nearby, or someone willing and able to give hints and advice. What stuff interests you, for learning, and as a later goal..? Don't be shy; we all here started as beginners 'not knowing where to start'. B|

Welcome. Joining a forum is a pretty good way to start. Although learning all on your own, finding someone who can guide you personally (remotely is fine) will help immensely.

Welcome Lee! 

And there are plenty of people who have taken up guitar later in life (I was in my fifties) so you’re not alone!

At one time I’d have said that it’s best to find a tutor and have lessons (and, to be honest, that’s still the best way) but lockdowns and the like mean that there are a whole raft of alternative resources out there to get you going. My recommendation would still be to have a few lessons at some stage but you can cover a lot of the basics online.

As I’m sure you’ve found, there are lots of YouTube videos of varying quality as well as “games” to help you learn your way around the strings and fretboard. There are also a lot of online tutors who will do one-on-one lessons as well as online courses that are you through a full curriculum. My favourite of these is the Justin Guitar set of courses which are free (although you can pay for extras and apps but there’s a huge amount of free material available) and I like Justin’s style and approach.

Good luck on the journey and get ready for advice and guidance to be given (whether you want it or not!).
