Handyman: Your First Guitar Lesson

With the rip-roaring success of last week's "Handyman (with black hat)," it's now time for another in our (we can only hope) weekly how-to series.

Now that Paul is getting his chops together on the four-string bass, this would be a good time for the rest of you to dust off that six-string variety you've been meaning to tackle. After this first lesson (and a few hours of practicing in front of a mirror), you'll be able to bang out a rendition of "Kumbaya" at the Sunday folk mass with the best of them.

That's if you're into that sort of thing. If you're not, there's hope for you. Enjoy.

[UPDATE: For all you Dead Heads out there, IClaudius of Why Fret has brought to our attention a website with videos, tablature, the works, by some guy named "JDarks." Check it out.]

Nope, not me. Meanwhile, let's hyperlink that sucker, okay?

I used to play guitar very badly. It all sounds so familiar. Haven't touched the Alvarez in probably 10 years. Your video prompted me to get it out of the case and look at it. Not play it, mind you, just look at it. Still looks like a guitar. :)
