    I've had my acoustic guitar for a few months but keep putting off trying to learn it because I just can't understand the rubbish books I've got. Anyone got any good websites/books I should check out?

    Top links Coopz, cheers mate :TU:

    I've always wanted to play the acoustic but having played GH and RB, I think I'd prefer to play the electric now :(

    Might get an electric once I've learnt enough on my acoustic :))

    all you need

    plenty of tabs and lessons

    Start with chords, then move to tabs. The rhythym of your right hand (if you're right handed) is just as important as what you fret with your left.

    EDIT: http://www.justinguitar.com/ - pretty much as good as having a real guitar tutor. Watch his video lessons and follow them from the beginning

    youtube is great for learning songs.

    I played years ago from books and bye ear and it was hard going. I bought a guitar recently and recommend youtube and chordie.

    If you want to learn a particular song, get the tab from http://www.chordie.com and search youtube for video lessons.

    I would also recommend Katie Melua's guitarist's website http://www.justinguitar.com/

    Cheers
