Hey I just started learning the guitar. I was wondering if there are good books to buy for beginners I have an acoustic guitar. I have been looking around and would rather find a book that people recommend.

Thanks

The "Dummies" books are pretty good. I have the one for blues guitar and I'll probably be buying this one at some point because it teaches some decent songs.

there is this book called "Absoulte Beginners: guitar" Thats how i learned. comes with an awsome book and DVD. the Book and the DVD are the same thing but help you learn. in the next 2 months or depends on how long you practice... you will know everything you need to know. Check your local book store. good luck!

I just have to say that it will be tough on your fingers the first few weeks. But later you will buil calluses(spelling?) and you can play as long as you want.

Well learning pretty fast how tough the strings are on fingers. I have been playing for about a week and they hurt, even when I am typing How long does it take for you to build your fingers up?? I play about 2 hours a day

It depends what style you want to learn, but Aaron Sherer classical method, for classical, but for rhythm guitar, Rhythm Guitar Method by Progressive is a good all around book to start for self study.
