James, I have been playing for a couple of years and have found the video lessons on Justin's site (http://www.justinguitar.com/) to be super helpful.  He is a great teacher and has a lesson plan that will take you from zero to intermediate in a nice, logical and straightforward way.  Just follow his plan and advice and you will get better. Best of all, all of the videos are free!

I would go with A Modern Approach to Classical Guitar by Duncan and Repertoire and Studies Guitar Series by The Royal Conservatory if you want to read music. I'm biased because I learned from those.

If you just want to play, pick a song and learn the chords from ultimate guitar. Start easy. Pick a song that you air strum to.

Hi guys! I am 17 years old and am just beginning to play guitar. Do you have any recommendations on where to begin?

@Brian

I'm going off the version from the Wolfetones.

Actually two versions I listened to are capoed. One at II one at III. Doesn't matter really It's played out of C/Am relative to the capo. . . Thing about it is the capo in "standard use" is to change the key to fit the voice of the singer. You could play/sing in the real key of C if the singer can handle it. You could also capo and change the chords you play to make it in the key of C. . . blah blah. It is a trick often done in the studio to add texture or to simulate a 12-string.

@Nathan:

Who's Version of Black and Tans are you going from?

Comment by Fabricante on January 20, 2013 at 10:21pm

Does anyone know if the song "Come Out Ye Black and Tans" is played with a Capo?
