Let's begin with tuning your guitar. You must keep your guitar in tune for two reasons:
1. So you sound good!
2. Training your ear
There are six strings on the guitar, and we count down from the thickest string to the thinnest string. The thickest string is closest to you and has the most resonant sound, while the thinnest string is closest to your legs and has the highest sound. Your strings are named after letters in the alphabet, and they are as follows:
6 - E
5 - A
4 - D
3 - G
2 - B
1 - E
The best way to tune your guitar is with a tuner. I highly recommend that you buy a tuner if you do not already have one. Using a tuner is very simple, and most tuners work the same way. While your tuner should automatically detect which string you are tuning, remember to make sure that the tuner displays your desired tuning
note. If it doesn't, then the string is either too high or too low in pitch. For example: If you are tuning the 6th string you should see an "E" on the tuner. If you see another note, you are either too high or too low for the tuner to know you are on the 6th string.
When you adjust the tuning peg, the string tension will increase or decrease, depending on the direction you choose to turn it. While the string is ringing, turn the tuning peg until the display is in the tuner's centre. On most tuners, when you reach the correct pitch, the tuning light will change colour.
Always remember to tune "up" to a pitch and not down to a pitch. This helps in keeping your guitar in tune.

Let's talk about the pick. Some people resist using a pick, but I recommend that you use one.
Picks are made out of different materials and come in many thicknesses. Please don't get a metal pick or anything crazy. Start with normal celluloid or tortex medium thickness pick.
As you progress, you might find that you want something a little different, but that will come naturally.
The pick should be held between the thumb and index finger so that the pick's point is parallel with the strings. There should be no tension in your picking hand, wrist or arm. It is essential to relax. When you pick, the motion should come from the wrist and hand. Not the shoulder or elbow! You will get exhausted if you do this. Also, make sure that you are sitting up straight when you are playing. Hunching over is bad for your neck and back and can lead to injuries over time.
Now it is time to get you playing. Playing the guitar is all about repetition and muscle memory. The best way to start is to work on finger exercises that will build up strength and dexterity in your finger muscles and build your hand-eye coordination. These are just exercises, like running a lap in gym class, and have no harmonic value. We have four fingers at our disposal:
1 - Index
2 - Middle
3 - Ring
4 - Pinkie
To begin, take your first finger and put it behind the first fret on the sixth string. Pick that note with a downstroke. The best sound will be achieved when the finger is directly behind the fret and pushed down with moderate force. Could you not squeeze the life out of it? Next, place your second finger behind the second fret of the same string and pick with an upstroke.
Then, pick the third fret with the third finger using a downstroke. Lastly, pick the fourth fret with the fourth finger using an upstroke. Continue this exercise on each of the remaining five strings. When finished, your fourth finger should be on the fourth fret of the first string.
Now that we have taken this pattern forwards, we need to take it backwards. Slide your fourth finger up one fret to the fifth fret on the first string and play it with a downstroke. Then, with an upstroke, play the third finger on the fourth fret of the same string.
Next, play the third fret with your second finger with a downstroke. Lastly, pick the second fret on the first string with your first finger using an upstroke. Continue this across the remaining five strings. It would help if you ended up on the second fret of the sixth string with your first finger.
Once you are there, slide your first finger up one fret to the third fret and follow this series's forward pattern over to the first string. Then, slide up one fret with your fourth finger on the first string and continue the backwards pattern of this series back to the sixth string. You get the idea. Follow this pattern up to the twelfth fret. The last note played will be with your fourth finger on the first string on the twelfth fret when done correctly.
This exercise should be done slow and steady, preferably to a metronome to ensure that you don't speed up. You want to make sure the notes ring out, sound clean, and are not rushed or chopped off. Accuracy, not speed, is the goal here. Once you can play this exercise accurately and cleanly at a slow tempo, gradually increase your tempo.
Also, feel free to experiment and make up your finger exercises.
Try skipping strings and frets!

You definitely need a teacher because the all the stuff on the internet is not correct and as a beginner you will not be able to differentiate between the correct and wrong ways of doing certain things.
