    I have aspergers and having been playing looooong loooong time. Playing guitar helped me get thru my teenage years. Some evidence those with Aspie have more discriminate hearing than general populace. Just climb on board and get after it

    Play Ramones songs. They're all 5 and 6-string Barre-chords. ADHD themes

    Find a good professional teacher, explain your issues and ambitions and take it from there.

    Some magic tutorials on YouTube.

    DO THIS: take your copy Fender strat, and just follow this guy teaching you ONE TUNE. This one. Very shortly you will think you are Jimmy Page. Picking notes, not strumming like that dumb holy jeebus teacher you had in junior school.

    You might be at quite an advantage. There are those that have these difficulties coping with ordinary life that are absolutely fantastic musicians.

    you have to learn to be patient. people take years if not more to master an instrument. even then, you're still learning something new every time you play or if you play in a band.

    start looking at local music stores. inquire about private lessons, mention your disabilities if the teacher will think that will be a factor, and maybe they have different strategies to help you practice.

    consider rending your equipment first before you buy it right away. or if you do buy, look for used equipment. you don't need to go all out right away. then if six months to a year or more, you're still playing, improving, and enjoying it, you can start to look at better equipment.

    do you want to play rock, pop, jazz, blues, or other genres? you need to figure out those too, as they are completely different languages of music and reading skills.
