    The guys at the pawn shop you go to must love you. That's cool though. Stick with it and you'll be playing your favorite tunes in no time.

    I disagree with this. I was 15 years old when a friend said, "you've gotta hear this..." and it was the first time I had heard Comfortably Numb. I stated that I will learn how to play that some day. I have been probably the biggest David Gilmour fan ever since.

    23 years later in 2010, my wife bought me an electric for Christmas. I don't know how to play in that I can just pick it up and play a tune. I have learned to play many songs. I play just about anything Pink Floyd and Gilmour except for Comfortably Numb. If I learn that one, I'm done as it is the ultimate for me to learn to play. I'll sit and rip out Shine on you Crazy Diamond, Time, Money, Another Brick in the Wall, etc, all night long. I'll play things from SRV, Jimmy Page, Slash, but I won't play Comfortably Numb.

    Also a great guitar forum, Guitar Noise.

    Yeah, that guy is decent, and there are TONS of FREE lessons on YouTube.
    Get some chord charts and learn the cowboy chords, then learn barre chords,
    try a little Drop D, and that will be a good start.
    There are some decent people on craigslist and some will give you lessons
    for $20. The better ones will be in the $40 range, but ultimately, you get out
    of it what you put into it, just like anything. It can be satisfying and frustrating.
    Good luck to you.

    Guitar is the easiest instrument to learn how to play on a basic level, and perhaps the hardest to master to any degree. It can be frustrating, but also very rewarding. I consider myself to be very moderately talented, but I do have a good ear, and I love to play. The last two factors can carry you a long way, and in the end all you really need to stick with it is the last: a love of playing.

    I don't always agree with pcad, but when I do I paraphrase a beer commercial tag line. Loving to play the intrument will get you miles farther than begrudgingly practicing what someone tells you will help.

    Not by a long shot!

    Sometimes my fingers cooperate and sometimes it seems like they are not even connected to my brain. When they aren't working, I put it down and walk away. When they are, I play and enjoy.

    Not at all. It takes a while to gain the muscle memory and also takes a while for the fingertips to harden up. Now, your fingertips are probably soft so it takes more effort to press the strings correctly which affects the ability to form the chords along with the muscle memory.

    Pick 2 chords and practice slowly going between them. Do this with every combination of 2 selected chords.

    Then when you start bar chords, your head will spin again on how to produce sound with them, LOL.

    If my fingers did what I wanted them to, I wouldn't be a DBA.
