buy a cheap guitar

If you can afford it, take lessons

AT LEAST take band in school so you can get a feel for music, rhythm, and such. I have a guitarist now who sucks b/c he has no sense of rhythm.

i tried but i gave up. i just couldn't get the hang of it even after practicing quite a bit.

if you don't have a guitar yet there's some guitar starter packs on my site (on fun.somethin4nothin). i bought my guitar and my amp at two different pawn shops. i might've gotten overcharged a little bit (tho they weren't very much), considering the guitar doesn't even list a make or model, but you might try that route.

You'll need a guitar, some fingers and at least one ear.

For learning, the guitar doesn't really make a difference, as long as it has at least 6 strings and is in tune.

Free lessons...

This might sound like shitty advice, but this is the route I took. Find a song you're particularly fond of that doesn't sound too difficult to play (for me, it was "Spiders" by System of a Down... just the intro, which is actually played on a bass, but I didn't know that at the time). Go online and google for "tab" for that song and start playing. Tab is extremely easy to read as it's simply 6 lines representing each string and a number for the fret of every single/chord you are to play. I never took lessons, never read books... just read tab. I eventually started playing by ear (once I discovered how sorry the fan tabs online can be... way to contradict my advice).

Anyway, here's a YouTube video of me playing with a guitar I purchased with freebie money if anyone's interested.

just because guitar hero doesnt let you play jumpin jack flash, won't get fooled again, like a rolling stone, silvio, or anything else that amazing
