  1. Greetings all. I've had an Ibanez electric guitar for a while now, and I'm wanting to finally learn how to play it. I understand the very basics, that is, what note each string is supposed to be, each fret is a half-step and so on, mainly my problems are technique. I need to learn to stretch my hand to press several frets simultaneously, and also a major problem I have is when trying to press two strings with one finger, my finger invariably contacts the next string over and mutes it if I try to pick it. I don't expect lessons from anyone here; what I'm asking is if anyone knows a good, comprehensive, reliable and free resource online that teaches how to play the guitar. Either that, or I guess it's to the local music shop with me. Thanks, -ACR
