note values.

I think the standard way to play your example one bar one is to let the c ring while the g is plucked. Very clearly this ruins the melody. Would you say the correct method is to silence the c when plucking the g? Shouldnt this rule apply to all guitar music that does not dictate otherwise? I think im alone in playing this way.

You'll need to go a little deeper into music theory as you proceed. The best online resource for this is Guitar Theory Revolution. It recognises that music theory is very hard for guitarists because music theory has till now been located in the piano paradigm. The Guitar Theory Revolution overthrows the piano paradigm that is holding you back and embraces the attributes of the guitar to unpack music theory. In fact, it goes further and allows you to see that the guitar is one of the best instruments for learning theory.
