start relating your listening to guitar playing
practice songs you enjoy to listen to
think about control and precision
look for a teacher
rock on

A GOOD teacher will have the communication skills and patience to help you learn. That doesn't mean your mate can't help, just make sure he's not trying to go to fast for you.

An easy place to start is learn some the following chords:
(chord name) (6th/thickest string to 1st/thinnest string)
C |032010|
A |002220|
G |320003|
E |022100|
D |x00232|

These will teach you a lot of the basic shapes of chords and help build strength/flexibility in your fingers. They may be a little hard at first but it'll get easier if you keep trying. If you see a chord that looks like this |244222| where it asks you to bar down the strings on one fret (in that chord it'd be the 2nd fret) it'd be a good idea to avoid that song at first because that asks a lot from a beginning guitarist.

Good bands with easy songs are Nirvana, just about any pop punk band and the Beatles.

And at some point further down the line it won't hurt to learn the major and minor scales.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!
