Practice mate, ya fingers will stretch. There is no one who can play good from the moment they pick up a guitar. I started with a shitty 15 watt squier amp and I sucked badly! But jamming with others, using guitar pro and getting influenced soon changed things.

I play guitar, been playing for about 4 years or so. I have a 1983 fender jap strat. Mostly play Peppers stuff, powder finder, kings of leon, pearl jam. That kind of stuff. Its awesome fun, just have to upgrade amps in a few months time.

Yeah i guess you can call me bit of a guitar player.. I play mainly powerchords which is probably easiest form of playing. I play songs from Green Day, Blink 182 and the Ramones and few others here and there. My brother and myself have 6 guitars all up. I mainly play my black Cort strat copy which sounds good for what i do, my bro and I went part halfs in a 1980's Hondo guitar in a cool shade of blue which is a pretty good guitar sounds pretty good, I have a weird green acoustic and my bro has some dodgey acoustic. He's also got a les paul copy and a copy of a Fender bass which is made by Monterey. I play them on my 30watt AXTECH custom made amp with built in distortion and chorus. Brother has a DRIVE 15watt amp he got new with his bass which gets used every blue moon.
