Eddie's answer is right on. Don't forget to have fun with it.

I'm guessing from your picture that you are more than ten years old and learning is much harder for adults. I started as an adult with unrealistic expectations of where I would be after 6 months, a year etc... Don't put hard time frames on your progress and don't get discouraged because you are not where you thought you would be.
You should take pleasure in the progress you make and don't compare youself to others, I know some people like to record themselves, try that and listen to it a month or even six months later and and you'll be stunned how much progress you've made. Expect that there will be peaks, valleys and plateaus along the way.
Last but not least don't forget to practice. I try to get 45 minutes to an hour 5 or 6 days a week and I usually take a break in there somewhere.

I love riffs, A great riff anchors a song, What would satisfaction be wihout Kieth's iconic riff? I woauld caution you not to get to hung up on them right away, a friend of mine spent two years learning riffs but no much else. It sounds cool but you end up being a guitar store hero, lets of flash but no substance. Stick with chords and scales.
