i have been planning on starting to play for a long time and now i have finally decided to do it, but all the people i know who play are self taught so they do not realy have kind of solid advice to give, i was wondering if anybody could recomend any dvd's or books which i could get to get me on my way with the basics.

any help of anyone would be much appreciated

That looks totally perfect for you.

I was going to sarcastically tell you to learn "Smoke on the Water", but do that instead.

Actually, Smoke on the Water is fun, do that one sometime too.

justinguitar is awesome

you should start with the basics, whats what in the guitar (pickup, frets, etc), simple chords, strumming and etc

you could look at youtube vids too, there are many video lessons, also by justin
I see you're not using the UG black theme
