i taught myself by reading tabs first then learning chords online. but yeah it would be better to learn via lessons so you can read notes if thats your thing. i'm fine reading A, B, C, etc. chords. oh and a decent guitar.

1. Get a guitar that holds tuning well. Stay away from cheap Walmart all plywood Chinese made crap. Anything from Godin (http://www.godinguitars.com/) is a good, semi-inexpensive guitar. I have a Seagull that sounds really nice.
2. Stay away from Guitar Center. "You sure you would not rather have a flat black shredder?".
3. Take lessons. You will learn more with some assistance.


Good info here: http://acousticguitarmagazine.com/

A shitload of time and patience. Unless you are naturally musically gifted there are much easier ways to get trim. You'll probably get frustrated and quit; the time it takes to build up the strength and dexterity in your hands usually puts most people off.

That said, if you are serious, get lessons and pay someone to make you practice. After you get past the learning curve of playing Mary had a Little Lamb and you can start to hold chord patterns down then you can start to 'jam' and then that's where the fun comes in. It helps to have a good ear to, I still can't read standard music notations for shit, but between tabs and playing by ear I can pick up most stuff easily. Playing from books only gets old quick, but you have to put in the time to get the reward.

just hang one on the wall of your place, with a broken string. this will have 90% of the panty dropping power with none of the work. "Yeah I play, but I busted a string last week and have yet to replace it. Does this rag smell like chroloform to you?"
