My own 2 cents worth...  There are a LOT of free guitar tutorials on youtube, some better than others.  my personal favorite is a guy named Marty Schwartz.  he has a couple of youtube channels  

  one of them is called "youcanlearnguitar" 

another is "martyzsongs"  

he also has a website  ""

There a a bunch of good online teachers,  this is just my personal favorite.

Mark...I've only been at this for about 3 years. At 63, I have no goal of ever playing in public. I just enjoy playing and learning new things in retirement. Keep It Fun, Dean
