If I have a spending limit of $250, and I am in need of a guitar, amp, etc, everything needed to play. Is the above package worth it?

I've done some research, and for the $250 price, I can't find anything on Ebay comparable.

Any recommendations on what I might use to self teach myself? I have seen Guitar For Dummies, or Idiot's Guide To Guitar, anybody have any experience with any of these?

Before you spend any money on books do yourself a favor and check out the net for lessons or tablatures (Tabs). Tabs is like reading music but much easier. All you need to do is pick a song you like. Google: tab song name. The tab tells you where to place your fingers on the fret board.

Below is the tab for AC/DC's "Back In Black"

Back In Black AC/DC

The numbers represent tell you where to place your fingers on the fretboard.

Before you spend a lot of money on books you may want to take a few lessons with a teacher or just get with some friends that all ready know how to play.

Good Luck!

My first guitar was an Epi Les Paul Special II and I still have it, although it doesn't get played much these days. Certainly good enough to learn with and mine has been gigged too.

If you've not played before, one of the best things you can do in my opinion is to set yourself an agenda.

Try to decide what you want to play. Set a few targets and try to play every day even if it's only for 15 minutes at a time. Play with other guitarists as soon as you can, you'll learn loads from other players.

Early on I bought a book called 'The Complete Guitarist', it's published by Dorling Kindersley and I still think it's a really useful book and worth the money. It doesn't just give some guidance on playing, it covers how guitars are made, different styles of music, basics of setting up, etc...

Good luck, and don't worry your fingertips will stop hirting after two or three weeks of playing every day.. :)

Cheers!
