Problem with resetting forgotten root password

I have tried for hours to reset a forgotten root password to my newly installed mySQL on my mac.

Different things I've tried:
./mysql -u root
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I get prompted for a password:
sudo mysql_safe --skip-grant-tables

I'm sorry, I'm new to mySQL so i don't know exactly what to ask. I've tried every video and instruction for hours to no avail. Please help :)
