Guitar: First Timer Challenges

Fender Guitar-9229.jpg

So after getting the guitar and messing around with the chords I knew, I realized a few things:

1. I need to develop guitar finger callouses
2. my fingers need to get that muscle memory
3. I have no strumming rhythm
4. it takes forever to find good instructional videos online

I settled on what my first song will be. Counting Crows – Accidentally in Love (theme song to Shrek 2) after searching through a bunch of videos, I found this guy who not only has good instructional video, but also has the tabs in the “additional information” section.

I can get the verse chords ok, but going to and from the C chord (not the alternative one that looks like G) is REALLY hard! anyway, I’ll post my progress later.
