    Hi all,

    I am a complete newbie to guitars. I am trying to learn acoustic by myself. Are there any organized resources like books etc which can teach basics. Right now I am practicing chords A Am E Em G D Dm C. I went through websites suggested in this forum but they are all induvidual small articles, not something like a book with continuity. My dream is to become a lead guitarist

    PLease help...a humble appeal to all experienced players/teachers there.

    Welcome to the disoriented and screwed up forums of igt... reminds me of the NYC sewers:p:

    Anywayz, so what do u want help with? you gotta learn a few basic things before you can become a half decent lead guitarist... Get a hold of some theory, because a lead guitarist is NOTHING without theory. And ya since i don't know how good ur pickign is.... i'll give a bit of generalized advice. USE A METRONOME... it'll make u faster. Play some easy lick, duzn't hav to be the hottest on earth but still, it should be a bit of a challenge to play for u. So play this lick slowly but perfectly... and increase the speed now and then. And when ur picking... try using both upstrokes and downstrokes. Strumming... have a rhythm in mind.

    store everything you get (Don't need to grasp those now) from vdo s to theory etc...Install guitar pro if you have a computer..... Try to love guitar (This is the best thing you can do.)....Don't ever think that you will become malmsteen in 5 months....Practice for 4-5 hours a day...Practice slowly....Don't go for short cuts.....Show what you are doing, to someone who knows how to play guitar (sometimes, ur technic can be seriously wrong, because no one to show you).............BEST OF LUCK

    oh......Don't play chords now....Go for the chromatics, shapes etc...Play chords when you learn enuff theory to understand what they actually are...
