the first step would be to get yourself a guitar! second catch someone who really knows how to play the guitar well because most of the times you think you're playing well but you're actually playing really bad :P heheh

oh and make sure the guitar isn't crappy and you have to tune it every two minutes. So before you learn how to play the guitar learn how to tune it! :P

To learn to play lead: Look for 'Scale Patterns' on the internet and practice until they are second nature To learn Rhythm: Learn chords and practice changing between them.

take guitar lessons focus on learning chords and what makes a chord then quit and go learn on your own play with people and learn songs as many as you can

I looked at this web site and found several different items for learning to play the guitar. There are some great ideas, you'll be playing the guitar before you know it. When did you purchase your guitar?
