There are 6 strings on your guitar, and these are numbered from 1 to 6. The bottom most string is the first string, and the top most one is the sixth one. On each string there are various frets, and when you push your finger against the fret on any string, it produces a different note. When you play the string without pushing your finger against any of the notes, it is known as an open note. The default open note for the first string is the E note, the B note for the second string, the G note for the third string, the D note for the fourth string, the A note for the fifth string, and lastly, the E note again for the sixth string. This forms the basis of any form of guitar lesson.
This is one of the most requested riffs out there. The key signature is B minor, relative to D Major. On the recording, one guitar plays this occasionally while the other performs the same riff with power chords. Use your first finger for the second fret, fourth finger for the fifth and third for the fourth fret.
Your left hand finger tips need to form callouses so that pushing down on the strings does not hurt. Unfortunately, the way to do this is to play on in spite of the pain until your fingers start to get tougher.
Back when I was learning to play guitar, if you couldn’t afford lessons you had to buy music books and struggle through the process of translating the lesson from the written page to your guitar. The Internet has certainly changed all that.
2) Do you have any previous exposure to music theory or playing another musical instrument? If you do, you can pursue on your own as you are already familiar with music concepts. However, if you are completely new to music, it is highly recommended that you take help of a professional who can guide you till you are comfortable playing Guitar on your own.
