My garage band was called many things bad was the most applicable IMO.
Our official name at one point was The Marshmellow Dragon. No idea who thought that one up.
We played at a few charity events location/names escape me at this point in time. But very limited beyond our garages.
As to picking it up learning chords is the fundamental building block for the guitar. Fingering and such is much easier when you are young but I am sure it can be conquered. Stick with it and one day it just seems to work, after hours of practice !
