    There will be a time when you need to take lessons. Theory is a part of being really good but I suggest online video lessons from sites like YouTube are a good place to get started.

    Find a friend who is really good at it and have them teach you. don’t have one? then find a friend who has a friend who plays, that’s how I’m learning to play the bass guitar 😀

    Weird, because that is my question. Maybe we can help each other through this?

    Anyway, the only other ways I know of are to use books, youtube, online lessons, etc.

    Answer mine?

    I suggest finding someone local to take from just because they are usually cheaper and you can probably work something out. I have been playing for 4 years and my lessons are pretty expensive and will be switching soon to someone in my neighborhood.

    I can’t say for sure that it’s the best way, but this is what worked for me.

    You have an advantage over the way I learned in that you get to start out with the internet to help you. I had been playing a few years before I could cash in on that wealth of information.

    There’s a poster called Guitar Chords, you can buy it even at non-music stores. It looks like too much to take in at first, but concentrate on one chord at a time. Start with the ones that are just a letter, no sharps or flats, minor or sevenths or anything.

    A book might not hurt. There’s lots of them, I don’t know which is best, everybody’s different. They’d be a good way to learn scales, first the pentatonic, and so on.

    Then there’s guitar tabs. Tabs are music that’s written specifically for guitar. Each line represents a string, numbers represent fret numbers, read from left to right. …Some people might try to tell you that you should learn “real sheet music,” and that tabs are sheet music’s ugly cousin. Truth is, when guitars were first invented in the 1500’s, that’s how music was written for guitar. (Take THAT, traditional musicians! – sorry, personal grudge.) But it does help to be able to read both. Tabs are great for learning.

    Know that you will experience a time, longer for some than for others, when you’re beginning during which you will suck, tremendously, at your instrument. So does everybody, at first. Gather some willpower and fight your way through that, and in no time you’ll achieve the status of “mediocre musician.” (I’m almost kidding. The point is to not get discouraged.) And as long as you continually are learning something new, you will continually get better. The key is to practice often, and to challenge yourself. Experiment. Try to mimic your favorite artists, and elements of their styles will bleed into your playing as time goes on.

    1. Go to youtube and filter “guitar excercises”
    Find a few and practice them – for hours!
    2. Go to youtube and type “chords for guitar”
    ditto
    3. Go to youtube and type “major scales guitar”
    ditto
    4. Go to youtube and type “minor scales guitar”
    ditto
    5. Now while you were searching for that lot, you will come across tons of lessons, songs, chords and scales.
    That will keep you going for a while.

    Finally, find someone better than you to jam with, after you’ve got a good grasp.
