"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

  • Online Free Guitar Lessons and review of Epiphone's splendid Hummingbir Pro

    If like my sister Mandy you're wanting to learn the guitar, reputable music shops will not only offer you a great range of budget beginner's guitars, but may also offer free guitar lessons. Here is one exceptional example of a budget acoustic guitar.

    Epiphone Hummingbird Pro - this is my top pick! It's fantastic to play and currently on offer for 289 from amazon uk + 13 shipping. I loved it so much that I treated myself to one, and this morning I ordered one for Mandy's Christmas pressie.

    Epiphone's Hummingbird Pro is the entry-level version of the famous Gibson Hummingbird. The body of this guitar has a dreadnought shape and is made of a solid, one-piece spruce top with a select laminated mahogany back and sides. This gives this acoustic guitar a warm, rounded sound. There's also a spruce top which helps to add brighter and clearer high sounds. The neck has a slim d-neck shape and is made from selected mahogany, with a rosewood fretboard with 20 frets. The bridge is also made from rosewood, with 6 bridge pins that holds the strings and has a synthetic bone saddle. This lovely budgeyt guitar also has grover tuners and synthetic tortoise pickguard. It weighs 2.3 kg so not bad.

    Why do I also rave about this Hummingbird Pro? Incredibly, this acoustic guitar has a built-in pickup, with a Shadows ePerformer preamp system that allows you to connect this guitar to an amp or PA system. The preamp system has treble and bass controls, a master volume control, and is powered by 2032 round batteries.

    You Tube has very good guitar lessons for absolute beginners. Type 'guitar lessons for absolute beginners' in the You Tube search box and you'll find lots more. Here is a really good, motivating example by Erich Andreas.

    Before you go out and buy a guitar, Artist Guitars give excellent advice:

    So there you go. There's nothing lovelier than an ace budget guitar, and free lessons if you look around.

    The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.
