I've never played guitar before...How do I get started?

Answer

Here's the short answer:   First, you'll need to decide what kind of guitar you want to play.  The three major types of guitar are acoustic, electric and classical.  It might be helpful to look up youtube videos of your favorite bands and see what they are using and decide from there.  If you don't have a guitar then go and buy one online or from your local music store.  You can usually expect to pay between $100-$200 for a decent guitar for beginners.  If that price is too steep then you might have to go to your local pawn shop and buy a second-hand guitar (sometimes you can find some great deals). 

After you have purchased your guitar then you will need to learn to play it.  There are several ways to do this--you can begin by looking for free online lessons and work through as many of those as you can (usually the free online lessons lead to paid lessons so there's really only so much you can learn from free lessons.  You can also find a beginner guitar book online or at a music store which you can go through and try to figure things out the best you can.  You can also take online or offline guitar lessons.  You can search around on the internet for the best online guitar lessons and you can also look through your local phone book for guitar instructors.  Online lessons start at around $20/month and offline lessons start at around $40/month.  Personally, I charge $60/month or $15 per 1/2 hour weekly "offline" local lessons.
