    I will also post guides covering different parts of playing guitar and writing songs
    as well as make some videos to help but for now, let's start with the key basics.

    My dad has a generic acoustic guitar I've wanted to learn how to play for ages but alas I believe my hands are way to small/unflexible to properly play guitar. ;^;

    You never know till you try. Hand size doesn't matter really, just give it a go

    Sweet guide.
    I've got an older electric/acoustic that I got from a friend and I've been wanting to learn how to play some stuff.
    My only problem was I couldn't quite figure out the order in which your supposed to play tabs.
    Like with this one, its Hurt by Johnny Cash.
    e|------0--------0---------2------|
    B|------1--------1---------3------|
    G|------2--------0-------2-2------|
    D|----2-2------2-2------0--0------|
    A|---0--0------3-3----------------|
    E|--------------------------------|

    Would I play the open A first? Or would I start at the top?
    After reading this I have finally figured it out.
    So now I'm gonna give it another go
