    You just caught me on the day that I chanced upon a site that not only does French things (for GCSE) but Japanese so I hope to learn Japanese at some point.

    I've been playing guitar for 5 years now (wow, its that long?), but I'm still a scrub. I do know a few things though.

    When I lived in Spain I had a moped, so I'm used to it. Just going up a gear I suppose.

    I've passed my car licence, but to be honest there's no rush to get that done unless you need to commute to an isolated area. Waste of time and money for me.
    nice one! id love to learn but my parents wouldnt allow me...

    My ex could drive a motorbike like but its just wrong for a man to go on the back p

    yeh dont plan on getting a car for a while as its sooo pricey but getting the licence is important

    TAB notation is best for scrubs.
    There are a gazillion apps for guitar tuning on app stores (even windows phone since I have one). If you tune it correctly from the lowest string (the thickest one if its a acoustic) should have the tuning EADGBE (Every angel does good before evil is how I got to remember)
    Holla at me if you need anything else.

    python yum.
    I have many more suggestions if you already know it. For example I am quite fluent in C# and could manage a passing R with a little more practice, along with a few other languages.

    To beginners;
    To be honest, once you have the basic fingering skills (heh) needed for moving between frets etc, you should check out Marty Shwartz on youtube. Wouldn't still be playing guitar if it wasn't for that guy. #HatzOff # Rezpekt

    yeh not sure any group team sport suits though..

    video editing nice! any advice on that for a beginner? I love animation but I hear it takes LOADS of TIME
    I did like just a tiny little bit of stuff... Used Sony Vegas personally and it's a really nice program, it seems to have a lot of complex options but the simplest things are not too difficult to grasp for a beginner, also there are a lot of tutorials available online! I'm sure you can get a trial or something and check it out
