    Well, if you have no idea on how to play the guitar, then i think there are some beginner books that show you how to finger the notes at the back…

    dude if you have a barnes and noble nearby, look in their sale sections, there are always guitar books in there. also – if you look where they have the like.. “gift ideas,” you should be able to find a guitar set with a cd, on how to play.

    otherwise, just start playing along with tunes. I dont know what style youre into, but you cant go wrong with metal, for sheer fun. I learned to play by playing the rhythm guitar on metallica’s “kill em all” album, over and over.. years ago. you can’t go wrong with the chugga-chugga-chugga riffs.

    You don’t need lessons, man! Just get a book that shows you how to play chords, to start with. Forget about reading music, it’s not generally necessary, but you will want to learn TABs, they’re easy. Go to the music store and look at the books of tabs for songs you know, and you’ll be on your way. Don’t give up.

    DONT LEARN FROM A BOOK.dont learn chords.learn to read tabs then go to and learn some songs.after you can play a few songs learn scales and modes.keep going up and up.i taught myself and did the things i just said and me and my band are being signed to an indie label.

    for rock guitar just take a good book, a guitar and practice! that’s how me and my sister and some friends did it. btw, it helps to do it in a group.
