One on one lessons would be ideal, but there a lot of online sources if this is not feasible. About.com has pretty extensive guitar lessons. I used it when I was first learning. Once you understand the basics and can play chords, you can find tabs for your favorite songs pretty easily. Have fun and practice, practice, practice.
i have been playing for 14 years the best thing is to look up scales learn Ur scales they will make u a great guitarist and there's a man named Marty Schwartz on youtube and he shows you how to play somethings to start and his teachings are epic he has some free lessons on you tube but u can join his site and learn it all and hes cheap
The best way to learn is to check Youtube or the web (it's easy and free), but if that does not help, you should maybe consider getting lessons from a guitarist or purchase one of those videos that instruct you.
I've been playing, writing, performing for some 35 years; and, now I'm doing my own recording. there are a lot of guitar players in my town that will tell you I was the one who showed them how but the real question is, "Do you really want to learn how to play "a musical instrument"? It takes time, practice and repetition. The good thing is that everything you learn is recursive on to itself. Everything has to do with everything. So you spend at least $150.00 to $200.00 on either your electric or acoustic kit (they give you everything to start off with) so you know your instrument is half decent. Pick a song you would like to learn. Find a friend, or a friend of a friend who plays guitar, or an instructor, and tell them you want to learn that song. And just start from there. I promise you from there if you really like it, then the rest will take care of itself. Just do it! I hope you enjoy it! It's the only other thing that I'm still doing now that I was doing when I was 15 years old. I turn 50 this December....and I play in a rock band and I'm the lead guitarist and I don't suck and we don't suck and it kicks ass still. Rock ON!
Truthfully there is no right (easy) way to become a "jukebox hero". Having passion for any endeavor is a big factor in maintaining the urge to continue. Another key to success is have fun with it. Play songs you enjoy even if they are difficult because you have to enjoy it otherwise it will be a chore.The last key is simply to "practice" no matter whether you decide to get a teacher or to just teach yourself you must practice. Hope this helps. Arik S McNamara
Start out on a Mel Bay guitar book and then get a young kid or high school er to come to your house because they are young and are still playing guitar. Also you can go on YouTube for some songs you want to know.
I learned how to play guitar from a beginning guitar book called "How To Teach Yourself To Play Guitar". After that I started to learn songs from an online website called VGuitar. They have ALOT of awesome rock songs and you can print out the tab and also watch the video were Ben Lowry teaches you by showing you exactly ow to play it on the guitar. :)
I learned by finding a song I really liked, (Daughters by John Mayer) and learning one chord at a time by tabs and videos of John playing it. I found that, although I knew close to nothing about guitar, my motivation and will power helped me to become a pretty good guitarist! hope this helps!

get a guitar and play all the time. if you have one to eight hours that you are not at work, school or taking care of kids, play guitar. do this and you will be amazed at how fast your skills develop. but you must play a little bit at least EVERY DAY. this is because of how our brains work. when you sleep, your talents develop based on what you did the previous day.
Dedication and patience. In my opinion the guitar is as difficult as it is easy. Best bet is to try and narrow down basically what style you would want to learn first; learn the fundamentals, then give it about 2 years. Afterward, and during this time, you will inevitably find that the ease of learning coincides with what you want to do with the guitar. Sorry, but there is really no short-cut other than long nights of persistance, (because you want to!!!). Also there is no shame in finding a guitar tutor, much different from someone whom plays guitar. Players play, but teachers teach.
Theres alot of ways to learn you can take a class or have someone you know & plays a guitar teach you or you can just go on YouTube and search on guitar lessons or just teach yourself which takes patience & time
