ok well i got a guitar about 2 months ago, my first one (im only 15- almost 16)
i have been told i am pretty good for my first time playing and that i am better than normal(i think it was all my air guitar practice lol)
but i dont have a guitar tuner.... i have a 15w crate amp and a left handed Biscayne? guitar(its some unkown label i picked up off ebay for 150$)
i would like to learn to play some heavy metal like slipknot n all that typ of stuff
but i cant realy find something i can play that is easy that i can enjoy playing (except i can play the begining of raining blood by slayer) just put that to let u know my skill level, and that is about as fast as i can play, although i am trying to learn some trivium it is just to hard
could anyone give me any suggestions or anything i would realy apritiate it

1 per fortnight or something to help you understand the way it all ties together .
but as your a newby i have to say that you really need to start learning some theory etc.
it will help in the long run , even if it looks like you are learning another language , which essentially you are.
start by learning all the notes names , on each string .
realise that there is only 12 different ones .
do u have a guitar tuner , chord book , simple exercise book ?
if not , get them !
you will need to know where your fingers should go , especially the little one which will become neglected if you dont use it !
as far as learning songs goes it is a good idea to learn stuff that you are familiar with .
so that bit is your call !
welcome and good luck !

When you say theory, are you talking about standard notation? If so then no he doesn't need to get stuck in to it from the word go. It would help, but it's not the b all and end all. That's how you turn a beginner off. He should get straight into playing and start learning theory later
And taking some lessons is always good.
Damn you Gus. You beat me to it.
