I've bought several "instant guitar" style books and dvds they all say they assume no prior knowledge but they all start on chords. This really does start at the basics, first with 3 notes on the first string, then 3 more notes on the second string, and so on adding more notes.
I've never touched a musical instrument in my life, and now after 4 weeks I am playing tunes such as Twinkle Little Star and When The Saints Come Marching in.
The dvd is good to watch and repeat. It shows clsoe ups of both hands when the instructor is playing.
