So can anyone give me links that helped them, that can help me learn all the basics to guitar? I know all the basic chords, and strumming, and how to tune, power chords, change strings etc. Im working on barre chords and picking, (my fingers are very short! Im a girl) can anyone give me some links to online videos or written text that can help me?

also what would you suggest i should learn

I am getting in electric guitar soon also, right now i play acoustic.
thanks so much

the lessons on about.com helped me a while back. Theres some scale lessons on their, as well as bare basic stuff. Definately start learning at least simple scales.

ive read all those. they helped me a little, not a ton though.
I just wanted to get a good feel of what worked for everyone else so i could try it out.

how long did it take you guys to learn barre chords? Ive been at it for a week, and still cant get one finger to hold down all the strings.

Get started on some simple open chords (A, C, D, E, G). Also do some basic theory, as it will help you later on. Finally, make sure to get your technique down. Alternate pick everything, position your hands correctly, stay loose, and enjoy playing.


edit: and youtube. Definitely. Its good to see people showing you how to do something.

Go there and start reading, don't stop until you've learned most of it if not all, then come back with more questions if you have them.
