Right... So I am mid 20s and know almost nothing about guitars.

I have a hand me down from a friend and I can easily follow along to some videos on YouTube but I still don't actually know anything... I feel I am just a guitar parrot just now.

I really want to learn from the ground up. I have considered getting lessons with a teacher but I just don't have the time to actuall plan stuff like that into my life with how my job is. I guess I am asking if there are any really great free courses online? I am already using three at the moment but not sure if I should just buy something???

In terms of what I want to do... Well, I just want to be able to jam away without constantly thinking "how the hell do I play this thing?!" Wouldn't mind learning a few songs along the way too, rock, blues even a bit of cheesy pop :)

Why not try the lessons on this site; apart from anything else, they're good and they're free.

I'd suggest you to buy Guitar For Dummies, with DVD by Mark Phillips and Jon Chappell.

You can check it out on Amazon ;)
