I'm looking to create a bullet list as follows:

(a) first item
(b) second item
(c) etc.

I've tried to google it and found the following code:

\begin{enumerate}[(a)]%for small alpha-characters within brackets.
\item
\end{enumerate}

However, this doesn't work for me.

I've also tried:

\begin{enumerate}[\alph{qcounter}]
\item 
\end{enumerate}

but it doesn't work either.

Any help would be much appreciated.

With the enumerate package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumerate}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumerate
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}[(a)]
  \item first item
  \item second item
  \item etc.
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

With the enumitem package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumitem
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}[label=(\alph*)]
  \item first item
  \item second item
  \item etc.
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

Without any package:

\documentclass{article}
\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{(\alph{enumi})}
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}
  \item first item
  \item second item
  \item etc.
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}
