    Playing guitar is no harder or easier than any other instrument. It takes time to learn and dedication to master.

    However, you CAN teach yourself as long as you know where to look and how to practice etc.

    The only tip I can give you is PLAY ALL THE TIME! I mean as much as possible. The more you play the more you become familiar with the instrument and the better you will get.

    Check youtube for backing tracks and instructional videos. You can learn quite a bit there for free but if you can afford it pay for lessons. They will immeasurably increase your ability to accel at the guitar.

    Hope this helps.

    Learning the Guitar
    You need a course of instruction.
    The best way is with a private teacher
    2nd would be class lessons
    3rd regularly get together with other guitar players
    or if you absolutely will or cannot do the above, Buy a book on how to play the guitar and follow it religiously.
    Last would be to find some free online lessons and skip around in them doing what YOU think you want to do next.
    Guitar is one of the world’s most popular instruments.
    It is easy to take with you.
    It has a sound that people like.
    It can be use in almost any type of music.
    Almost anyone can learn to play it.
    Simple music is easily played after only a few days or weeks.
    You can continue to learn new and challenging music forever.

    OK Learning guitar is not that hard, but you need to consider a few things.
    1. Do you have time to practise?
    2. Do you really want to do it?
    3. Are you aware that it will hurt your fingers for a while, but with practice the pain will wear off?
    4. Can you afford a reasonable one?
    5. Yes you can teach yourself. I did.

    OK. Decide if you want steel strings (brighter sound, harder on the fingers), or nylon ( mellower sound, easier on the fingers). Work out your budget.

    Go to your local guitar store, preferably with a friend who plays. Have him/her play a few in your price range, both steel and nylon strung and decide which sounds best to you. When you havr found one, hold it in playing position, and have your friend show you a chord shape. Try it yourself and see how it feels to push the strings against the fingerboard. If you are completely happy, ask the assistant what deals are avaiable. You need the guitar, a gig bag, plectrum, strap, electronic tuner and book of chords.

    When you start to play, check it is in tune, then star on some easy chords. A and D are a good starting point.

    Hope this helps

    just keep doing it… The only way to play guitar well is to practice everyday. Don’t worry about chords until you get how to make one note sound good with another. take a lesson… you don’t have to take many lessons just one or two for someone to show you the basics.

    Learning to play the guitar is about as easy as it is to learn good English writing and spelling attributes.

    You will have an array of advice on your dilemma, but I strongly suggest you start with a quality acoustic guitar, such as what Alvarez, Ibanez, Ephiphone, Fender, Takamine, and Yamaha offer. Look for a guitar in the price range of $300 and you won’t go wrong.

    I never suggest to any student to start off with the electric guitar because most often the beginner is focusing on the distortion, volume, chorus, and echo sounds that the amplifier produces instead of concentrating on basic chords and their progressions.

    Furthermore, lugging an amplifier around to some place to play isn’t conducive for a beginner to do. Buy that first acoustic guitar because it will test your determination and motivation to play, to move beyond the painful fingertips until the calluses arrive, and will build strength in your fingers.
    While checking the Internet websites for tutoring, I suggest you buy a quality chord book from your local music store and focus on building up your chord repertoire.

    As you do that, also put a lot of concentration in learning how to read music. Get the booklet, Hal Leonard’s Beginning Guitar Method Book One. Inside are instructions in tuning, maintenance, basic chords, and, most important, basic music theory with exercises that can advance your expertise if you are willing to work at it.
    Do not expect to play like a professional guitarist within the first week or even the first year. Much time, practice, research, and study must go into making a fine guitar player. If you are willing to put forth the effort then you will eventually excel at the guitar.

    If u wanna learn how to play guitar, u must have a strong will and persistance first!
    Second, it’s much better for u to have a teacher guiding u. Of course, it consumes
    money and time. But u can get an ebook with video lessons. Among those tutorials,
    jamorama course has a serial lessons ranging from beginner, mid-level, high-level,
    rock, blue etc. It will show u how to play guitar by pictures and videos. If u keep
    learning from jamorama, playing guitar will not be ur dream any more:)

    I think this website may help you. Originally this course was manufactured on DVD and VHS tape. Including all of the guitarists, lessons, and resources, it took 10 VHS tapes or four DVDs for just the introductory lesson! I am happy to announce that now for the first time guitar superstars is available for instant download right here at http://adf.ly/yfm
