    Practice.. Practice Practice...

    There is no replacement for practice. Read different articles on guitar practice on, those are inspiring ones.

    its just 3 months u cant expect to be a pro guitarist leanin is not bout knowin the positions of chords its bout how fast u can switch btw the chords
    i learnt my first song after 3 mnths ur guitar sounds outta tune coz of chord switchin.Well rite now i wud say dun concentrate on learnin songs concentrate on technique once thts done it take 5 min to learn wanna well start with songs havin easy strummin pattern like nothin gonna change my love
    or if u wanna play these songs better just strumm them only once. get the chords shiftin rite then go for proper strummin if ur learnin frm some1 he might tell u the proper approach
    n least of all check ur tunnin may be tht cud be a problem

    get ur basics clear..learn the chord positions for all major and minor chords..make sure ur guitar is tuned!!...u definitely need some help..either instructor or a pal or tutorial websites...just have a look at the beginner's Q and A forum would provide u wid lots of info and help...most of all be patient and determined to learn guitar..dont give up and keep practicing

    C'mon yaar..I'll tell u about myself.. even I was there ( i mean frustrated with guitar) .. and I did stop playin guitar..

    My teacher was really bakwas..(sorry.. Im not suppose to say it..see I understand but I cannot stop myself.. He was that bad)

    after that..mera guitar tut gaya.. then once I met my friend.. He played Nothing Else matters intro..and suddenly I had a magical feeling..that I should try it... ( u wont believe but I listen to this song almost everyday..)

    I repaired my guitar... I tried and tried and tried..

    see you need to practice... One day you will look back and laugh.. I promise..

    hiya ritu! here's my 2 cents:
    is there some song that u r absolutely crazy about? some song that sounds so beautiful that u know every single note of it in ur mind. ok? found it yet?
    mine was 'nothing else matters' by metallica, that's the first song i learned. i learned guitar by reading tabs on the net, didnt hav a teacher, still dont ;) .
    the thing is if u really love and know a song then each time u strike the right chord or note, u'll feel it in ur heart and that'll make u happy which in turn will keep up ur interest in learning the guitar! believe me it is a beautiful instrument and u really dnt wanna give it up that easily ;)
    here's a little tab that sounds nice and is easy (yes there r such things!)
    Theme from movie 'Dosti' : (little 'e' means smallest string on the guitar)

    @ritu, you'll do good to take vini's advice, she's the one who taught me the C maj chord <3 She can vouch for that. I'll be a bit more straightforward with you than the others. Bottom line, you are the one who has to set a goal for yourself and do the needed practice to achieve it. You have all the resources right here on the internet, now will you go the distance? Upto you muh friend. My 50 cents.
