dont listen to every1 who says that you need a self taught and im better than some of my friends who take lessons.The only thing that i would recommend is that you find a good chord dictonary and find out how to read tabs off the internet so that you can play the music that you see.once you have learnt some of that stuff go onto a website like and type in the songs that you want to learn.Some first your fingers will get sore and you might get blisters until you build up calus in you fingers(then it wont happen any more.2.guitar isnt necissarily hard but you need alot of PATIENCE and i stess that so much that its not funny.3.have fun with it, one of the most important rules of music is if it sounds good it is good and dont forget it.HAVE FUN.(PATIENCE)

My sister is self-taught and she's amazing.

If you plan on completely doing this on your own, I'd suggest starting with a base guitar. Since there is only four stings, it's alot easier.

I just started taking lessons and right now it's really hard. You have to practice a lot if you want to get really good. I think it's good to take at least a few lessons because my teacher can give me a lot of practicing tips and tell me what i'm doing wrong and what to fix and everything. You should take maybe a few lessons if you can then try learning everything else yourself.
