Having recently come across a large amount of free time, I’ve decided to try to learn to play guitar.
I have absolutely no musical ability (that I know of) and recognize this as a long-term project. Since I’ll be working on this for quite a while, I’d like to know which is better (read easier) to learn on, an acoustical guitar or an electric guitar? Price doesn’t really matter, I’ve found beginner models for each that are pretty comparable.
So do you think it will be easier for me to go for the James Taylor/John Denver image and pluck away at an acoustical, or should I go the Slash/ Stevie Ray Vaughan route and start learning screaming electric solos?
