And i have no clue where to start..

I work 2 jobs and work out 2 hours or so 4-6 times a week so my time is limited, but ive always wanted to play and my mom got me a cheap acoustic kit to learn on...

i saw this in another forum
"1) Chromatics to warm up
2) Chords (practice open chords to start)
3) Scales (start with minor pentatonic and major scale)"

Whats a Chromoatic?

Whats the difference between cords and Scales...I have this neat flip book that shows me the finger placement, but im not sure the difference..Now im VERY new to this, dont know how to do anything just learnd the strings yesterday my GF is helping me...As much as i want to learn all of that i get kinda bored easily (add...)
So id there some easy chords ( i think thats what im meaning) i can practice and play together that sounds like something..

If not any advice would be greatly appreciated

Chords are just multiple notes that are constructed and played at the same time to sound good. Chromatic is just 1/2 step at a time, so play one fret higher every note in a chromatic scale. Scales are series of notes that are constructed to sound good when they are played separately in the same key. For easy chord practice, most everyone here will recommend some AC/DC.

chromatics involve four note per string patterns

A Chord
e|-0-|
B|-2-|
G|-2-|
D|-2-|
A|-0-|
E|---|


First off you need to know how to read a tab, and what string is what on a tab.
Since you know the string names this should be easy.
The little e sign being the e string at the bottom of your right handed guitar.
Big E sign being the top string on your right handed guitar.

Each number in a tab means a different fret you put your finger on.
So in this chord you have to put three fingers down on the 2nd fret of the D, G, B strings.
If a tab says 0 then it means that the string is played open with no fingers anywhere on the fret board.
From there you may strum downwards from the A string.

Also try these chords:

D
e|-2-|
B|-3-|
G|-2-|
D|-0-|
A|---|
E|---|


E
e|-0-|
B|-0-|
G|-1-|
D|-2-|
A|-2-|
E|-0-|


E Minor
e|-0-|
B|-0-|
G|-0-|
D|-2-|
A|-2-|
E|-0-|
