    I want to learn guitar but I've heard loads of people are just self-taught so are there any good websites that help you learn or how do you do it? Do you just learn the chords and stuff? lol

    Bass guitar is easy, not particularly challenging. Calling yourself 'good' at bass means nothing. As far as learning the guitar goes, Ive been playing for 4 months now(?) and can play abit of Metallica stuff(hard) and alot of blink182 stuff(easy). It all depends how many hours youre willing to spend practicing. I do about 30 minutes a day alltogether. Dont learn the chords or the theory, its pointless, play along to songs you know using idiot proof tablature: http://www.mxtabs.net is the best site.

    I took some lessons aswell, for about 2 months, then I decided it was a waste of money and just bought the books and taught myself.
