Do I need to learn any music before I can play guitar or any other instrument?

I want to play guitar like the scorpions (rock, hard rock, metal)

learning how to read musical notes will benefit you playing any instrument, however because guitar is soooo common people who cant read notes look up tabs. One great site (especially for beginners) is Songsterr.com

HelloPikachu

No because if you are going to learn guitar, then that's learning music! If you don't get what I am saying, tell me and I will be specific!

You don't have to. Look at Jimi Hendrix, who is one of the greatest guitar players ever. He even admitted he had no idea how to read music.

The answer is no because you will learn the music as you learn the guitar.
