    Hi John,

    It’s good to hear from you. Thank you for taking the time to tell me about what’s going on for you.

    First the short answer… Yes, absolutely. Many people have learned to play guitar with similar issues, and other with what could be considered even more insurmountable issues.

    I also realize this doesn’t make what you’re going through any less frustrating.

    Know that you are not alone in this.

    I’ll recommend you watch this lesson (if you haven’t already).

    Watch all the way to the end. The techniques I teach are NOT the most important point.

    Also, it would benefit you greatly to go step by step through the Beginner’s Journey roadmap.

    Beginner’s Journey (Previous Version)

    Take your time and do the steps one at a time. Ask questions (you did good!).

    In the end it will come down to your ability to take things one step at a time, and at least somewhat to enjoy the process while acknowledging your small wins. It’s not easy, especially in a society that is geared towards instant gratification. But there are benefits that you will find far beyond just playing a few songs.
