Pretty neat idea to cover the very basics.
Just remember to stay away from foxholes like 'hold your pick like this', 'hold your guitar like this' and such... Everyone's body is unique! For example, check out how Vai, Petrucci, Benson, Metheny, Fiuczynski, Fripp, Abercrombie and De Lucia hold their pick and get the idea.
IMHO, all you need to learn how to play is to listen, transcribe and play (with people, too!). Of course having more than a Naked City -type attention span helps... (I wish I had one!)
The stuff/style you want to play is all over your cd shelf. So why bother doing the innumerable 12341234's? Play that MUSIC! Who cares how long it takes to get it down? Keneally learned that way. Vai learned that way (he kept flunking his proficiency exams at Berklee because he just played & transcribed). Wes learned that way.
Accompany that method with Jon Damian's book The Guitarist's Guide to Improvising and Composing and you have more than a lifetime full of stuff to work on...
Of course in the long run the freshest method would be to ditch all the cd's and lessons and figure out your own music & way how to play the guitar... but it's a crusade for only the brave (I wish I was).
