Just bought a couple of guitars (accoustic) and as I've never even picked one up before want to know what to do with it other that stick it on the wall.
Any advice of what to do ie start to play the bloody thing?

Serious answers only!

There are lots of tutorials on youtube. My son found them useful.

The best way to learn is with other people. It's autumn and the start of a new term for classes - see if there's a beginners class near you. Alternatively, find a teacher - it's lonely trying to play on your own. Go to live music in cafes, open mic nights, and talk to the musicians about tuition. if they can't do it, then they are likely to know someone who will. Try music stores, ask there about teachers. Phone them if you are not near a store. The basic techniques are the same, whatever style you want to play. Once you've got that, the best way to progress is playing with others. If you don't know any guitarists, then advertise, you'll be surprised how many are around. Good luck! The guitar is a fascinating and versatile instrument. :-bd
