Also, how often should I practice, meaning what is the average if there is one. I try daily but don't always get it in. When I do practice about 4 times a week, I do about 2 hours but I want to up that. Sorry about all the questions.

"The fault lies not in our [guitars] Horatio, but in ourselves."

Hold the guitar with what is comfortable for you. Learn good technique and it will carry you far. You can be cool later.
Here's a link that will give you some idea for a practice schedule - http://tomhess.net/PracticeGuitar.aspx
Welcome to the forum. You're never too old to start playing the guitar.

The next time you awake up with a tune in your head, Open a recording session, sing it, hum it, and keep it for future reference. I simple recorder will do, but you can download audacity and use it to record your vocal tunes. Later turn them into music.

Starsailor, I think it was quite normal during the Beatles era to have the guitars high but when I look at old footage I don't notice it because I guess I'm used to seeing them play like that. I will check out Peter Nook from New Order, I like their music. That reminds me of the lead of Green Day, I swear it looks like his arms aren't even that long.
Also, thanks for the links that you guys sent.
Eddie, as my ear gets trained, I should be able to find the notes when I wake up with tunes, the last one was a couple of nights ago and it sounded the best. In the past I used to wake with tunes that lasted the entire morning of getting ready for the day, only they were the most cheesiest songs my mind has ever made up, but hey, like one of my friends said, "So what, have fun with it".
If anyone is interested in seeing what I'd like to play for example, YouTube 'Tattooed Love Boys' by the Pretenders, watch them go!! RIP James and Pete.
