What is the best way to learn to play the guitar?

What I mean exactly is, is it better just to learn to play tabs or should you also learn to play cords as well. I am a beginner and I never play the guitar before so also does anyone have any tips what is the best way to learn? Thank you.

    well, aall my cousins play. and my cousin who just recently learned, was that he started with tabs.
    so, he found that to be helpful.
    just learn all the frets, and all that stuff. and then from there it should be easy:)

    There is no “best” or “right” way to learn how to play guitar. But if you can afford it, I suggest you get a good teacher.

    Although learning by yourself is fine, it takes a lot longer and you might develop a band technique.

    Tabs are great to learn a song or two, but if you really want to be good, you should develop your ear until tabs wont be necessary.

    I really don’t think you can learn only from tabs. However, the internet is a convenient way to go if you don’t want to hire a personal teacher. Try this one: – It has free video guitar lessons for beginners with animated tabs, which make the tutorials easier to follow.

    Have fun 🙂

    Most people begin learning guitar by learning the acoustic chords first, power chords second, and lead third. That way you can train your ear and your voice to the right tone and learn to play by ear, etc. It will be easier for you to go about it that way. is a good place for guitar information of every kind.
