    Hello, just seeing if anyone else started late ( I’m 41 ) or if anyone who plays has any good tips advice on beginners ?

    I have never played a note of anything in my life :)

    If you want to get to a decent standard then learn the chords one by one until you can move between a few and make little tunes. Then learn scales / keys that are all available on youtube.

    If you just want to have a mess about then learn the bar chord shapes and move up and down the neck.

    Squealing like a pig probably gave him the idea.

    I have bought about 6 over the years - practice mull of kin tyre for a week, give up as my fingers are sore and have ended up being hit by it by a disgruntled ex wife with it at some point.

    One day I will be able to play.
