Good for you.
It's one of the most interesting things a person can do, and FUN.
In 1960, a friend and I were completely self taught, with a lot of questions asked of our instructor.
Back then it was all dig it out of books for us. Now there's excellent video, etc that you can use.
BTW way, self taught doesn't mean less knowledge.
I got a 94 on the Private written and my buddy got 96 but he took 2 hours longer than me.;f
