Hi, I want to learn to play rock guitar but the difficulty is that it's not possible for me to take private lessons on this and I am thinking of taking online lessons for this. Can anyone suggest me a good source where I can get the needed stuff for a beginner and help me further on to make a better rock guitar player?

If I hadn't bought my DVD package for learning the guitar I think I would have used JustinGuitar for my lessons.
He's got some good lessons on YouTube and his website is:
http://justinguitar.com/
That should give you enough material for a year or two.

When it comes time for learning certain songs, use YouTube and type in key words like
guitar lessons
and maybe the name of the song you're interested in.
There's an abundance of information out there on the web.
Seek and ye shall find.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

This is an awesome DVD:

Learning requires a willingness to be bad at something for awhile.

Also check out the lessons on http://www.nextlevelguitar.com , an awesome site! I have a couple of his individual song lessons, very well done, broken down into easily understandable segments. David Taub rocks!

Here are two options I would offer, both of which are on DVD:

1. Learn & Master Guitar: http://www.learnandmasterguitar.com/

I bought this course and am using it to teach my two sons to play guitar. It is quite good and resembles traditional in-person lessons. The reviews for it are good. It will get you started and last about a year (or more).

2. Metal Method: http://www.metalmethod.com/

This is also an excellent course, geared more towards hard rock & metal. It has been around for over 20 years - I first learned to play using their first version of the course in the early 1980s.

I would say that you consider buying both, if the cost is not too much. They will both teach you from an absolute beginner to a very good intermediate level. But, their emphasis is somewhat different. Learn & Master Guitar teaches you how to read standard notation and Metal Method is more in TAB. If you go through both at the same time, you will be at a level of skill that is higher than a lot of guitarists who are actually gigging.

Yes, I would agree to that. I have seen some of his videos on YouTube and they are informative, interactive and funny at the same time.

+1 to that, EB! I have been struggling as of late and am turning to David's lessons. I should have taken everyone's advice when they told me that after I first joined this site. Oh well, I am looking forward from here.

David, if you read this please accept my gratitude for all that you do for us fledgling noobs.

You're welcome, Jim! It's actually my pleasure to be part of this community and to write these lessons and I'm hoping that I've finally gotten my personal teaching schedule to a point where I can do it on a more regular basis than of late. "Late" being the past couple of years!

Just a note - because of my reading of the Guitar Noise membership, it's just seemed prudent to be writing these lessons in the "single guitar arrangement" style. But, if there's a call for it, I can certainly write up some lessons on some more specific and less one-guitar types of lessons. I'm trying like crazy to finish up a lesson I promised Rahul ages ago on the various lead guitar licks in Take Me Home Country Roads, which I'm hoping will be done sometime before the end of June.

Okay, back to our regularly scheduled thread...

Peace

I would completely agree you should give the lessons here at guitarnoise.com a good try. The content is free, the content is very good, and you can't beat the supportive community to assist you with any issues.

If you decide to go with a pay site, make sure you check out http://www.workshoplive.com . My oldest daughter started taking lessons there several years after I started playing guitar. She has by far surpassed my playing ability. Of course that could be because she has a lot more time to play than I do.
