    I just googled “guitar lessons” and found lectures how to read tabs.. It helped me to write some things down, like which finger to use, the names of the strings etc etc
    to make up melodies just strum some chords, be experimental =)
    have fun

    Well, I just started, but I can play a few songs already, it’s been 2 weeks.

    One guy that helped me a lot:

    Follow his instructions and it’s smooth sailing from then on!

    A friend of mine just googled the tabs for a song he wanted you can just type in guitar tabs for (song) and it should give you a diagram and you can teach yourself like that.

    My best advice is: play with your ears and don’t worry too much about theory. If something sounds good then it’s good. Yngwie Malmsteen always says: play with your ears and he knows what he’s talking about. Cheers.
