I had never played a fighting game before Street Fighter IV, at least not seriously. Naturally, I sucked. I first got drawn into the game after watching replays, and I kept doing that. You'd be surprised by what you pick up just from watching other people play, even though it may be too advanced to start out with.

Apart from learning by observing, there is always the option to watch some tutorials. Youtube is filled with them, basics, character guides and the likes.

Then it is always good to have some people around yourself, some folks you can sit down with occasionally and play some casual rounds. You can add me to start with, and I'm sure many more would volunteer.

Last but not least, never give up. If you do go head-over-heels and jump into ranked matches and get beaten over and over, try to learn from that. Comes time, comes practise.

It's in seperate chapters, but very helpful.

Also, you're not going to get good in a couple of weeks. This is the type of game where it takes a load of time to master. Those guys at EVO don't just play every other week.

Most guys that get somewhere in EVO been playing FGs for 10+ years now. FIghting games have a basic fundamentals and that will carry over to no matter which FG you play. So it is very important for new players to learn the basics first. Because once you learn those you can pretty much pick up any fighting game and be decent at it. Or atleast you won't get facerolled.

Blocking, Blocking and Blocking. You have to master this. Learn how to block mixups, crossups, and don't panic when being pressured. Lot of people panic when they are getting pressured and press a button then eat counter hit damage.

These will obviously take time to learn but the key is to stick with it. It's kind of like going through a weight loss program. You can't expect to lose 50 lbs in one week. But if you get discouraged after not seeing that result within one week and abandon the program then you won't go anywhere.
