I'm a 47 year old guy who has always had a passion for guitar.  That being said, I really want to learn it myself instead of always listening to someone else.

To that end, I'd like advice on how to begin.  Is there any structure that I should follow.  I'm good at following logical order, but I can't find anything in the lessons section that says, "Start with this" or "Lesson 1" or "Now that you've got that, do this".

Please help an older guy out!
sflynn601 Okay folks, it's been a little over a week since I made the first post.  Still no reply from anyone.  

I'm not messing around here.  I want to learn and I'd like some feedback from those who've been there.
Welcome here! For as broad as this question is, I think that you would get better luck in a forum such as Musician Talk (further down on the main page.)

My God, it's full of stars!
