Where to start playing guitar? I got an electric and just want to be able to get trough songs. Do I start with scales? Simple chord songs? I have played bass for 6 months roughly and I guess I know some basics. But what about the guitar? I am not unfamilliar with it, but if I want to pick it up seriously and play songs with solos in them and all, where do I start? What do I start with?
i guess that scales wouldn't hurt but i would recommend playing some simple songs that you enjoy in the beginning at least. Thats pretty important to keep the motivation up. So grab your guitar play some easy rock-chord songs at first and have fun!
scales i would suggest the minor pentatonic, major pentatonic, and blues scale to build some strength and speed
first off...WRONG FORUM

secondly, a teach yourself book or a guitar teacher is probs best

after that, listen out for songs that sound easy to play, then learn them from tab.

thanks for the compliment man!
So any advice on some simple rock chord songs then? Like Back to Black and Smoke on the Water or what?
