Livingstone is 100% right on this one. Never underestimate doing the "unfun" things like taking lessons and practicing the things you are shown. I taught years ago and gave it up when cats simply wanted to learn how to play their fav songs and were far too impressed that I didn't need tab to do it.
Puting in the work now -- learning to read, understanding some basic theory, and most importantly getting into a healthy practice routine including warming up with exercises that will get you using proper hand position and getting your fingers accustomed to the instrument -- will give you the tools you need to succeed at whatever level you wish to attain, be it playing the local scene, writing and recording, or world domination.
Training and practice trains your hands, your ears, and your mind. Then, when you are at one with your instrument, you and the groove will find each other.
Sorry... in a bit of a Tao mood today.
