Congratulations on choosing to learn how to play a guitar - it is a wonderful instrument and one of the few that you can play whole songs and sing along with at the same time - or your friends can sing along with you. As well as that it's pretty much the best instrument you can carry around with you, take it to your friends place or the campfire. This makes the guitar a much more social instrument than something like piano or trumpet (and way cooler too!)
