Guitar is great to learn and play, the problems you face have already been faced by most of us, so don't be shy. If you need to get advice, then don't be afraid to ask. We're also interested to hear about your progress, so keep in touch.

The DVDs I have:
1.Guitar DVD #1 Beginner Basics and Beyond - it was recommended to me at Guitar Center and I was very pleased because it seemed to follow a nice steady pace that is easy to follow and build on.
2.Easy Guitar Theory
3.Total Scales, Techniques, and Applications (comes with a book as well)
4.Easy Guitar Tricks
5.Easy Blues Guitar
6.Led Zeppelin Phrase by Phrase
7.Creedence Clearwater Revival (Hal Leonard DVD)
8.Guitar Method in the style of Rage Against the Machine with Curt Mitchell
I plan on watching them in that order as I progress from DVD moving from 1 to the next after I feel like I have mastered the techniques/lessons.
I also bought a tab book with about 60 songs in it and a small chord encyclopedia.
I feel like it will take me a quite awhile to go through all of that but if there are some other DVDs/Books some of you feel like are must reads/watch I am always open to suggestions.

Here's something to keep in mind as you go. Learning guitar should be fun. But some of that stuff that gets dished up to beginners isn't fun, it's just plain difficult. Make sure you learn things that are fun and rewarding to play at the same time as you're learning the hard stuff. Just two or three chords will give you thousands of songs to strum along to, and while you're doing that you can also be learning your scales and the theory you need to play more involved music. I'm sure many beginners give up because they concentrate on learning as many chords and scales as they can find, but never get to actually play any songs. So don't be mean to yourself ... enjoy the fun of guitar right from the start and I'm sure you'll be around here for years to come.
Keep in touch.
