Despite spending hours and hours per week, I feel like I haven't made much progress. Like my fingering is alright and I know all the basic. But if I want to play a song, I have to look up the tabs. I want to know how to play by knowing the chords and read music. This is my first instrument so I don't know how to read music but I've been trying to learn for some weeks now. Anyways how would you guitar players out there recommend I start learning? Also, any good resources? Thanks a lot!
