I prefer self teaching personally, academia bores the hell out of me and causes a loss of interest.

A good way to learn (to start with if self teaching) is to learn songs, a good way to learn songs in a sort amount of time would be to watch a cover, slow different sections down and transcribe what you see onto your instrument.

After you've got the notes down just keep playing the track over and over until you're playing it fluently.

It enables you to learn it without the notes being written down in front of you and also teaches you different techniques in the process. (depending of what you choose to learn ofc)

It's also helpful for applying the techniques you've learnt into your own style of playing.

Personally i've taught myself from youtube videos, online chords and learnt how to read tab. In about 8 months it's got me pretty far only playing every couple of days. I feel confident playing to other people and am able to make up my own riffs.

I learned most of my chords by way of a Beatles' songbook. Not that it helped much; I'm still a lousy guitarist, probably because I don't have the discipline for it, I guess.

It's not a one stop shop. Take some lessons with a tutor for rudiments, watch youtube videos, learn songs that you like, try new things out, learn how to teach yourself new ideas, jam with some mates if you have any that play (you can start a band or do it for fun, just try to work with other musicians on a somewhat equal playing field), and pay attention to what the guitarists that you like do both audibly and in videos.

Slip your guitar a twenty every now and then, and it'll play itself for you.

Take it from Joe Pass.

I took about 10 lessons when I was a teenager and then taught myself the rest.

I am no guitarist but it depends on each person

For some, just observing someone can help you get started on playing the guitar.
