advise for newbies how to learn play... 

I have an advice to everyone who is new to guitar but wants to learn all by himself.
There is a course starting on coursera on 19th of July (Introduction to Guitar by Thaddeus Hogarth)

Hurry up and grab what you can from it! )

Hi Annika,
Would you believe that I was about to post to ask if anyone thought that might be a worthwhile course for newbies?

https://www.coursera.org/course/guitar

I've signed up to see what interesting things might be included. It can't hurt.
Cheers

Hello Anna and Kaimana.

The question is WHAT exactly you want to learn? Just playing a guitar or playing Flamenco.

As a person who play Flamenco guitar mostly by himself for at least 7 years (plus minus army service) I still always recommend new players to take a real flamenco teacher, because there are lots of incorrect stuff going on the internet (aka fakemanco/nuevo flamenco).

Moreover , with a teacher you get a better understanding about the music structure of flamenco and things like Compas (which took me lots of time, as "spanish outsider", to understand) . . .

Best regards and have fun!

Hi FullMetalGuitarist,
You're exactly right that there's nothing like learning from a teacher. I've been very lucky to be able to learn a bit from a teacher who can play flamenco guitar, but I didn't grow up with music. So, there are huge gaps in my understanding of music. We could call it a big chasm of ignorance, actually. This online course being discussed will probably explain some very basic music theory, and I think that would be useful for any style of guitar playing.
