    You could put the guitar on your lap or a tabletop, toss an eBow on one of the strings, then play the fretboard like a keyboard.

      Doesn't the world have enough guitarists?


      Not enough creative guitarists.

          Don't make the mistake of stopping playing when your fingers turn to "hamburger." This is a good thing. If you can play through the pain for a couple of weeks, you'll get nice, tough calluses. Then, you won't have to worry about hamburger fingers any more after that.

            and those nice tough calluses not only protect your fingers from pain, they make your playing sound better because they're more effective at pushing down the string and almost necessary to do things like hammer-ons and pull-offs.

              ... but you touch the strings directly instead of remotely hammer on them...


              This is the great strength of guitar. If you're noodling, spend lots of time on learning to use your right hand to get different sounds. That's where the magic is. And don't be afraid of pulling on the neck with your left hand to get vibrato. You can also get a nice wah/vibrato sound by placing and removing your forearm on the guitar's face between the saddle and tail.

                  I recently bought a cheap acoustic guitar, and only know 2 chords at this time,


                  Only one more chord and you're a rock star.

                    tune the sucker to a chord (DGDGBD is good) and use a slide (knife handle or dowel or whatever). Then you'll know twelve chords.

                      Yes. With this technique, you can play most of the main riffs from the rock opera Tommy.
