thx in advance!

If you have some music background as you say you do then it will be easier to learn guitar. You can get a simple lesson book and learn a scale and play simple songs in the book on your own. You will only go so far on your own, you will benefit from videos at least and certainly lessons after you get rolling. You Tube is a wonderful source of free tutorials,

There are a few things that you will need someone to show you that you just can’t get easily from a book. (hammer ons, palm muting, holding a pick etc) . You can read for hours or get shown in a few minutes, your choice…..

BUY A TUNER!!!! Korg GA-30 Guitar tuner runs around $15. Makes tuning a snap.

I am on the fence about weather or not one should start on an acoustic or electric. Each have there advantages, my recommendation is to start on Acoustic:
1,) its cheaper to buy
2.) no amp is required (contributes to lower cost)
3.) Acoustic strings are harder to press down so you build hand/finger strength. If you can play acoustic chords then electric will be real easy. Your piano playing should already have helped you build finger strength and dexterity.

You can play some simple songs from on-line videos. THere are many free ones JustinGuitar,com is one of my fav’s he has a few tutorials of easy songs. I also found a cheap book “Simply Guitar” and DVD at Barnes & Nobel that was on sale for $10. THe dvd has some finger exercises , chord charts etc and is worth the money. (You will find fingers are labeled differently than Piano. Guitar doesn’t number the thumb and starts with the index finger as #1, piano labels the thumb #1.)

Check out your local community college non-credit courses to see if therre are any music courses. “Bristol Community College here in Massachusetts offers a group Beginner Guitar lesson (non credit) for 1/2 a semester.

Also don’t overlook your local library for books and dvd’s on guitar.
