For beginners, you may buy a second-hand guitar for you to learn playing the basics. Start with learning the finger position to play Em or pronounced as E minor, which is one of the most basic chords. Next step is to learn how to hold the guitar and basic strumming. Follow this by learning to play the chord D major. Students need to learn basic music theory in order to be able to read music notations. With proper guidance from a teacher, students can learn the techniques of soloing or lead. For many acoustic guitar beginners, chord changes and progressions are the next logical stage to cover. Though there are several free youtube videos available, nothing can give you the right guidance as much as step-by-step private lessons.
