Default QUESTION: Learning Curve

I have recently started playing guitar, and the learning curve (just to clarify with my semantics: the time it takes for me to actually become comfortable playing) is pissing me off.

Anyone have any advice (besides drugs) as to how I could stay focused? Guitar is one of the only instruments whose sound I actually find pleasing, so I want to play.

find a song you like.. that you has fast, slow, hard, and easy parts... so you can grow into it.. then you can play a song you love and never get bored.. i usualyl just lock the doors and turn of the cell phone with the amp REALLY LOUD to stay focused..

Just start off with some simple three or four chord songs & strum a bit, sing along. It might seem boring at first but at least you can start getting a feel for it.

Once you can get a few simple songs under your belt that way, then you can start wandering out a bit more & experimenting...

Electric is easier to start with rather than acoustic, unless you like pain.

Good luck!
