I've recently started guitar and have a private teacher who i meet once a week, but meeting once a week seems like it will get me nowhere, and im eager to learn more. So can anyone recommend me a good guitar book i can buy to learn from.
I'd buy a Hal Leonard book with a CD included. There are also several decent eBooks available which you can download for free. Don't get anything too advanced if you're a newbie. You really need to hear what you are trying to play so the CD or Website thing is the way to go.

Good Luck.

I started with Hal Leonard, although i agree with coffee dude

articles here are really good
