Hi all!
Okay, I've borrowed an acoustic guitar. So, where do I start? Any suggestions or web links for a complete beginner? Thanks!

Well you could start with learning how Tabelature works!! And then check out some of the easy vintage tricks on www.guitartricks.com

I believe that there also is explaination of the Tab-writing on guitartricks.

There is a page on guitartricks that teaches tab
www.guitartricks.com/tab.shtml
and the vintage tricks are a good primer. But, if you have never played a note, they may cause you some trouble.
The links page has some good links to other lesson sites
www.guitartricks.com/guitlinks.shtml

I think you might like this one

jedi- there are no tricks to chords, just practice, practice, practice. once you get your dexterity to a certain point, chords will be a breeze to play, but also, you'll find that you can learn new chords and the fingerings extremely fast. its all a matter of practice though.

I think that a real beginer should start
with some clasic stuff It is harder to find
clasic music for guitar than for piano
but it's better to start with it than with
blues or rock. I have played clasic guitar for year, and then when i started to learn blues and rock it went much easier.
A good clasic composer to learn is Bach
