Merely as a hobby. I’m not unfamiliar with the instrument, as I had many friends over the years who play and thus have had some very limited exposure.
I’m 36 now, and it’s always something I’ve wanted to learn, but pursuing my career has never allowed the time for. Now, things are a bit slower and balanced, and I feel I can bend some determination and discipline toward becoming a beginner.
So I ask thee, for a beginner and n00b like me, what would be a decent, cheap-ish guitar to pick up and learn on?* Also, are there any good online sites for guys like me? Pick up some chords and practice techniques?
*One thing I’ve always struggled with is getting my very unmanly hands to contort to the necessary positions. Not sure if that has to do with my hands in particular, or a certain limberness of phalanges I don’t have or haven’t worked up to yet. Are there certain guitars that lend themselves to different hand types?
