Try easy songs on this site, and find out what Picking, Alternate Picking and Sliding is.
What are the basic and start with a song thats easy and you like, or skip first and start to learn.

I want help and I came here because some friends from other forums told me this is a nice place to learn to play guitar. So i want help i am not going to delete, i am gona keep posting until i get an answer. For person who said search google"i did and i didnt get any good results so i came here for help from people that know good sites"
for person who said learn some simple songs"i am not even at that level i only know so far like 3 cords thats it so i am looking for sites to teach and make guitar fun" so thats that and i am still looking for help
For the people that helped thank you but i am not at the level to learn songs so i need some good sites for noobs about some basic cords, songs with those cords etc. for gods sake maybe even like "mary had a little lamb"
So please i realy want to learn to play guitar and sometimes i just get bc explanations are hard and i put it down for a couple of months but i want to stop doing that please help me.

Please stop raping the English language.

To FallenAngel,

Congratulations on picking up the guitar - stick with it and you'll enjoy yourself for the rest of your life.

You could pick up a guitar book, like a Hal Leonard book, that takes you through basic stuff, like rhythm, chords, notes, etc.

You could also just start learning songs you like, but it would be hard to develop proper technique without a guide (a teacher or something like that).

You should always strive to practice good technique - don't have any excess tension in your muscles, play with the guitar on your left leg, etc.

VINDICEDIT:

FallenAngel, what kind of styles of music do you play?

If you're more interested in hard rock and heavy metal, you might want to get an electric guitar instead.

well gregson talked about having simple string songs so thats what i guess i will look for but i am not sure where to find them. I listen to a lot rock but i listen to a lot of singers/bands that use accustic like Daniel Powter. So i will also chck out guitardomian site and google for simple string songs. thank you for many people that helped including: guitardomain, vindication, gregson, sebo and gibson_rocker13 and gnr_rok

Okay fallen angel when you go onto ultimate guitar theres a little box in the middle of the page. Type in one of the songs someone earlier suggested (Come as you are, smoke on the water, seven nation army) then click the one with the highest rating in stars next to it. You may need to search the forums on how to read tablature so do that if you need to.

On this site there is a lesson section at the top of the page. Just look around in there for a while. Also, here are some other sites I found:

http://guitarsecrets.com/exercises.htm
http://www.cyberfret.com/index.php
http://www.musictheory.net/index.html
http://www.zentao.com/guitar/
http://www.licklibrary.com/

and if you don't know how to read tabs yet, go here:

http://www.cyberfret.com/reading/internet-tab/index.php

Good luck!

EDIT: Yes that site you posted is good, I used it when I just started to.

Grow the fuck up! The only person who does that anymore is 6DEATH6METAL6 but he was banned because he was ignorant and stupid, and couldn't back up an argument. I hope you face the wrath of one of cas's bingo nights...

In answer to the question...

What makes you nooby is the fact that you are bagging out someone because they are learning guitar. You may aswell bag someone out for being black, it's just fucking pointless, and achieves nothing except you getting flamed and the slight lowering of the "offended's" self esteem.

I hope you get banned.

Edit: Also, what is the point of learning on a "real" guitar, for instance a Strat or Les Paul, if you don't know how to play properly? What the fuck is the point of spending $3000 AUS on that guitar if you know about three chords? He might even give up guitar because he doesn't like it, then he's stuck with a guitar he can't play and no money.
