I largely taught myself how to play. I took lessons for about 6 months from a local guitar shop. After I surpassed the guitar teacher, I just bought books and watched as much instructional videos as I could. One thing that really helped me was to learn new songs. You learn a lot by learning someone else's music. I'd advise any new player to start there. Try to learn your favorite band's songs. It's a much better teacher than just practicing scales and exercises all the time.

I suggest that you check the academic programs from recognized institutions, or buy some of their books that way you will know what and how to study, it will help you maintain a path and see some progress

Practice, and studying, some years ago it was hard to find instructional videos, some how I managed to collect 50+ of them, I learned a lot from that material.

Today you have youtube, it is easier but keep in mind that not everyone can teach, so take your time to find your instructor and make sure to find the right one.

I've learnt the very basics with a teacher, but I'm trying to practice as much as possible by following Youtube lessons and by looking for tutorials on this forum. It's slow, but it works!

I learned by taking lessons at first, then moving on to self-learning from YouTube. I also learn from books, both electronic and paperback. Amazon is a great place to find such things :)
