    Go to this place;
    www.musicradar.com/forum/
    the forum has lots of helpful folks & good tips.

    & a contrary opinion to the people saying get an acoustic first. If you want to play rock songs, get an electric not an acoustic. If you want to hear those distorted, chunky rock sounds you'll need & electric - and you'' possibly just get frustrated at an acoustic sound.

    I think the point the other folks were saying is that you'll need a good foundation to your playing - which is true, but the important point is to have fun with it.

    Theory & practice are vital if you want to progress in specific ways & will help your musicality, but I'd guess most people would just like to be able to play a few of their favourite riffs as quickly as possible.

    edits cos i dont know how to link properly! doh!
