UG News editor since early 2013. King Crimson fan. I handle the news around here.
A young lass known as Rachelf decided to embark on a guitar journey last year, and has diligently documented the first 12 months of rocking out.
The musician noted:
“I started playing the electric guitar about one year ago today when I was 22.
“Over the past year I’ve been recording many clips of things I’ve been learning and I thought it would be cool to share my progress for other people getting started. Most of these videos I never expected to share, so please excuse the sound and video quality. 🙂
“I’ve been entirely self-taught learning through different resources online. I tried to play every day when I was around my guitar, but with work and other things there were some long periods where I wasn’t able to play. But for the most part I’ve been pretty consistent.”
