    you can go to www.ultimate-guitar.com for some good lessons and www.guitarseek.com for scales. try and keep away from tabs and guitar pro files, do your best to learn notes and learn songs by ear. doing this is good training to be albe to recognize pitch and notes. practicing your ears will also help you eliminate the need for a tuner or visual aids when playing. always study your scales, and start off from the basics: Major, Minor, Harmonic Major, Harmonic Minor, Pentatonic Major, Pentatonic Minor, and the Blues scales will help you out greatly.

    try listening to different kinds of music, again start off with easier music (Ramones, Sex Pistols) and once you progress and work on your "chops" you can start listening to more difficult stuff (Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath) then progress to the really killer stuff (Van Halen, Mr. Big, Yes, Rush).

    Bah I doubt this would work for me. I borrowed a guitar from a friend to learn how to play, but it is a cheap guitar, and I doubt it is currently tuned. So trying to learn by ear with this guitar would be like learning how to write, with a blindfold on.

    then buy one...it's not too expensive if you buy entry level models from cheap brands... besides that you don't even sound determined to learn, how the hell do you expect to learn if you don't even have any enthusiasm?

    Buy a tuner. One of those little electric ones. For like, ten bucks. They tell you what note you're playing, and you can tune it from there.

    or if you buy yamaha's entry level package it'll come with a tuner. the package is: guitar, strap, 3 picks, 2 packs of strings, 10 watt amp, tuner, string winder, and a cable. it's a pretty good deal, the guitar sounds decent for a cheap one, and the amp is quite strudy.

    what do you have, an acoustic or electric?

    seems learning on an acoustic is a bit harder but it's cheaper

    it's all the same. get an acoustic first, that'll save you a lot of cash, but if you're in to distorted tones then you might want to consider an entry level electric guitar package.

    to answer your question i own 1 acoustic/electric, 1 bass guitar, and 6 electric guitars (4 of which are chopjobs and build from scratch)
