I've been meaning to learn Guitar for the last couple of decades but never got round to it.
For Xmas, Mrs GP has bought me a nice shiny new Tanglewood Acoustic, a Digi tuner and a beginners book "play right away" by Gerry Malloy.
I used to play Piano and can read sheet music for Piano and having done the first few tutorials can figure out notation and play a few chords and run up and down a scale (in G).
So, before I start over-learning some bad habits / wrong techniques (the book I've got is a bit thin on some techniques) what advice can you musos offer for me to get on, and stay on the right path to becoming a competent player?
I've spotted the Justinmusic.com site which looks great but before I jump into that, I'll take counsel from you guys...
All hints / tips / don't do / etc gratefully received
