I've been doing the fingering exercises at http://alltabs.com. I can hardly wait untill both my fingers and eyes are agile enough to play one of the tabs there(You Are My Sunshine, because I used to sing it to my mom when I was just a little girl, made her happy). I know there's an easier version, but I want to play the really yowzah one.

So starting tonight, I'm going to start in on the lessons at Free Beginning Guitar Lessons with Peter Vogl (http://www.freeguitarvideos.com/Beginner/Beg_02.html)

I'll keep up the fingering exercises(cuz I wanna get really good), but I need the chords if I'm gonna get this song in my head down. It just so happens Peter Vogl teaches you like you're actually a beginner. He seems to remember what it was like to not be able to play, so he teaches slowly, and explains thoroughly. Other lessons I found failed to explain things thoroughly. I have a sneaking suspicion it's because the teachers forgot what it's like to be an absolute beginner.

Oh yeah, I found JamCenter.com | Free Internet Guitar Tuner (http://www.jamcenter.com/guitartuner.html) It's not just the tuner(I like a different one better anyway). It's the scales and music theory for beginners. Whoever built that site definitely remembers what it's like to not know how to play.

I can't be the only beginner, so if anybody has more good lessons for beginners; please just toss 'em in here :)
