    Guitar Fret Buzzing Despite Adjustments

    When loosening the truss rod, the neck does not respond instantly . Give it a day for the neck to bow forward (or tug the neck forward a bit). If that doesn't help, I agree with Jan.

    Vooja day - the feeling like nothing like this has ever happened before. But i guess it has. :-)

    Earth fire acoustic

    I think the most important thing for a beginner is playability. It is really important that the action is low to make it as easy as possible to play. So it, may be perfectly fine but it would be a good idea to have a friend who plays guitar look at it. If it has a truss rod, the action can be adjusted fairly easily. Light guage strings help too. best of luck. A lot of people are self taught but I'd recommend a teacher.

    Left Pinky Blues and Handedness

    At this stage in the game, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Form the g wiith the first three fingers. You may find that after playing for a while, your pinky becomes more flexible. It takes time to get those fingers to move at your will. by the way, the strings are numbered the other way. The highest pitch string is numbered one.
  7. Very well done. Great playing.

    Volumes a bit low. A little on the boring side :-).
