I took piano lessons decades ago but never made pass the 3rd lesson because masungit yung instructor. I turned 36 recently and I wanted to learn to play the guitar. I'm doing alot of research before buying my first guitar and the general consensus is with teachers online is buy the guitar you want to play with or the one that initially inspired you to start learning guitar. Hearing the style you want coming out of the guitar improves the interest in learning, they say.
It's actually one youtube video that inspired me to want to learn:
Ok, to be realistic, I'll probably will never be able to play that...ever. But hell, I want to play an electric guitar.
Therein lies my dilemma, I want to play an electric guitar but everyone I've asked are so against it. They say to start with an acoustic first, budget wise. I'm inclined to agree since I'm not sure how long my interest in learning and playing guitars will last, so it's better to go for the cheaper guitar type. But I don't want to play an acoustic guitar argh but I'm worried the interest might not last. I've picked up a hobby and dropped it alot that I'm worried that 20k electric guitar set might be a little bit too much for a short hobby. Only gaming seems to have stucked as a hobby.
