You need to learn to be both efficient in your practice time and you also need to know how to keep your practice time fun so you stick with it.
So why do you want to know how to learn and master the guitar in the first place? Is it because you've started a band and want to start playing out?

The good news is that whatever your reason for wanting to know how to learn and master the guitar you're going to find plenty of help on the web.
What's even better is that lessons circa 2009 are a millennia ahead of the lessons I had when I started playing twenty plus years ago.

When you use the Guru software, you download a session of your favorite song. The Guru software then displays the tablature right on your screen and plays the notes along with you through the sound on your computer. It's simply amazing. The Guru software is free and the sessions cost between $7 and $10. Well worth it. Imagine downloading your favorite tunes and having an instructor right in front of you exactly at the moment you're motivated to learn the song. It's truly amazing.
Personally I'm having a blast playing Red Hot Chili Peppers tunes and Van Halen licks with the help of the on-screen guitar tab and music tones. I hope this has helped you think about how to learn and master the guitar. Maybe someday I'll be playing your solo on guitar hero!

You know if that chemistry’s right … and I’ve never yet met another guitar teacher who’ll tell you how to pick the right guitar the way I show you.
Now, I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s not starting in the middle, is it? That’s starting at the start! From there, you’re not just playing tunes … you’re building a relationship with your instrument.
How to Learn Guitar at Home
When I started learning guitar the first thing I was confronted with was the seemingly insurmountable task of memorizing all the chords in a monster guitar chord book containing 1,001 chords.
The idea was to learn a chord a week, even at the tender age of thirteen I knew that meant lots of guitar lessons, the first two weeks went quite well, I remembered my chords and started to have some sense of achievement, however tragedy struck the third week when I learnt my third chord for some reason totally forgot one of the chords I have previously learnt.
Latter in my guitar playing life as I spoke with other guitarists I came to realize that apparently this situation was quite common amongst guitarists but at the time I did not know this so I set about learning chords by an entirely different approach.
Here's what I did...
I soon realized my problem was that I was learning random unrelated chord shapes without understanding why I was placing my fingers in these particular shapes and without gaining the essential musical skills that would allow me to connect what I was learning to previously learnt material.
grid 1: = strings 1, 2 & 3
grid 2: = 2, 3, & 4
grid 3: = 3, 4, & 5
grid 4: = 4, 5, & 6
The concept is to take your three note chord and play every possible inversion of that chord exclusively on the string grid before moving on to the next string grid.
Here is the three possible ways to play a C chord on grid 1
That's all the C chords on the first grid (I'm restricting my chords to the first twelve frets of the guitar, once you go beyond the twelfth fret the guitar repeats itself, if you have a guitar with a cutaway obviously you will want to extend your chord playing to encompass all the possible shapes available on your guitar.
