Beginner Guitar

I've been playing drums for 5-6 years and it will always be my main instrument but lately I've been wanting to attempt to learn guitar.

I'm basically looking for advice on where to start, should I just jump right into it and try to play songs? Unfortunately I don't have time to get lessons right now.

My stepdad has a bunch of guitars so I'm sure he'd let me borrow a cheap one to practice/learn on.

I've always wanted to play stuff like Psycroptic, Deathspell Omega, and Gorguts mostly...

I appreciate any advice thanks!

Yeah ^.
Scream Bloody Gore got to be one of the easiest death metal songs ever.
