For me, I have a natural tendency to want to continue to expand my skills and discover the next level of playing. However, there is beauty in simplicity and focusing on the basics. Learning topics like tuning a guitar, changing strings, strumming chords and playing songs all take time to develop. Although, there is so much to explore as a guitarist, I try to appreciate and reflect on how far I've come over the years without a formal music background.
So wherever you are on this path, take time to step back and appreciate what you've accomplished so far! Celebrate your progress.
