Practice, practice, practice!

It is possible, and you need trained fingers and trained ear to do that. Perhaps it's easiest done with the middle finger, resting on ring and pinkie for support.

Fenders havn't always had the quality right, but if youv'e got a good one, nothing will touch it. Many years ago"guitar for the practicing musician" did a pole for the greatest guitar ever. It went
1 Stratocaster
2 Les paul
3 Telecaster

Such ranks, like pop charts are for people without imagination tongue.gif

The feel, the tone you want, that's where it's at. There are so many good brands.

Enjoy it. You can't really quit guitar, can you? smile.gif

And you can't really quit GTU, Stu. I never even tried the former, and I never will. The latter is not a good idea either.

Glad to hear that you play again smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

Get Audacity, it's legally free. Or get Cool Edit Pro, which is better, but not legally free. wink.gif

Then plug your guitar directly to the soundcard, or you can do this through an amp or through any effect. Of course, you can also mic it. The possibilities are endless once you have some software. As I said, Audacity is free and generally accessible. Cool Edit is not free, but also generally accessible.

Some very old things like Carulli or Sor. Start with waltzes, it's quite easy to get the timing right.

The trademark part of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata arranged for guitar is easy too, and it sounds good.
