My Dad gave me a guitar when I was in early high school.
I got myself some books and learned all by myself. Every thing by myself without any teacher.
Yes I started 30 years ago , Some times I learned some classical very seriously then I just played some pop songs
some times on classical guitar some times acoustic .
I can see you have some guitar lessons in this site
How to know what level I am and from what lesson should I start?
There is an old saying about not being able to teach an old dog new tricks. It simply isn't true. Frank R. Wilson, neurologist and musician, states that we have the ability to continue learning well into the twilight years. With life experiences, you are sure to be a superior learner in many ways. The ability to question, the need to understand, the faculty to seek intuitive and logical relationships give a secure edge to someone starting much later.
How do you know where to start? (in general, not any place specifically) The beginning. Consider that there really is no such thing as advanced technique. All technique is basic. In the very beginning are the foundations we continue to use and perfect for the rest of our lives. By going to the beginning, you are able to perfect those foundations that is key in moving forward. And this same idea carries into the repertoire you choose to play. Playing much easier repertoire well is a sure fire way to quickly progress.
