Just start by learning a few basic open chords - A, E and D. There should be plenty of info re them free on the net. Also it is tricky sifting through the junk but there are some quality free lessons on youtube.

the first thing I learned on the guitar was some easy Whitestripes stuff. worked out great and now im at complex fingerpicking songs.
