I do not know how to play any kind of instrument. We were taught how to way back in high school and I actually asked my parents to buy me a guitar. My mom was very supportive, maybe because she knows how to play *although I haven't seen her do it. And so they did buy but I was not able to maximized using it. haha. I remember buying "song hits" to follow the chords. I know basic chords but my fingers just couldn't take those with grips... hehehe..
With D-A-G-A chords, I practiced with this song, but really sucked with the strumming! Argh!
