Thanks @ all for your tips!
I started an e-guitar tutorial on Youtube now. I'm doing all the boring simple exercises rigorously 😃 But so I prevent getting frowsy according to @modulator's hints.
Playing with a pick is not that difficult as expected. Easy tabs played slowly work fine already. Only when it comes to power chords I've still some problems catching only the two intended strings without touching a third.
Once I got through the basics I will pick some cool songs to practice as suggested to keep it interesting.
Yeti Out of interest, how are you amping your new beast?
I do not have a physical amp yet. I use an audio interface (Focusrite Scarlett i2i) and a virtual standalone amp (Audified ampLion). I practice with headphones. My neighbours are tortured enough with by bagpipe already 😄
Btw, do you give your guitars names? 😃
I named my bagpipe Heinrich. Now I ponder if my new guitar should get a name too. But then the two acoustics probably want to have names as well. And what about the keyboard, accordion and the 6 flutes xD
I'm a little bit scared of music theory 😃
