can anybody recommend good books to teach oneself by? ive been playing about 5 months with 3 months of lessons but lessons are too short and too expensive. i just want some straight forward, easy to understand books with lessons and drills covering chords, building shredding skills, theory.

First, read this:
http://www.amazon.com/Music-Theory-Guitarists-Everything-Wanted/dp/063406651X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1216943906&sr=8-2
Then, read this:
http://forwardmotionpdf.com/
Then, get this:

I would also recommend that everyone get this:
http://www.amazon.com/Chord-Chemistry-Ted-Greene/dp/0898986966/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1216944118&sr=8-1

Those may be the only books you'll ever need, though a few others have got some great ideas. For everything else, you should just study music.
