I'm a self taught guitar player which means I don't know jack about theory or reading music.
best advice you'll ever get is this,
if you want to be good at any instrument you have to practice with it daily not weekly or monthly.
The more you have the instrument in your hands the more you'll learn about it.
If at first you think you sound horrible its because you probably do, you're not skilled musicians yet so dont get discouraged in the beginning BUT
you will be amazed at how things sound after a couple months of learning and continued practice
Good Luck to all you folks
Do you folks enjoy Country Music?
Any particular song/s you guys are setting as a goal to play?
