What's up people? I'm so a newbie at this, as of today I've been playing a whole 48 hours! I'm also teaching myself, joy! But the innocent newbie needs some help. First, tuning this thing is insane. I cant seem to do it. What do I need to get because the whole "5th fret on E should sound the same as the open string below it" is WAY confusing to me! Second, I've received this poor thing as a gift from someone who used to play. IT'S REALLY DIRTY! How do I clean it up? Third... amps! I need an amp! How much am I gonna be setting down for one, just good enough for a newbie. And finally... someone encourage me! I love this so far, but man it's harder than people made it out to be! So thanks in advance, I hope to hear from people! Austa rockers!
