    Lessons?

    I'm a full-time guitarist in the midwest - just curious if anyone would be interested in lessons from time to time? I'd be open to bartering my skills for yours - what could you do for me?

    Does anyone have advice

    or sites or videos that I could use to help me learn? I have never played the guitar before but I desperately want to learn. Without spending too much money that is.
