I've wondered about picking up the guitar...I really want to learn acoustic. I used to be into playing music (through school band, but still...) and it's been 7 years since I've played any instrument consistently. I'm really wanting to learn how to play the acoustic guitar, and I have for a few years. I'm the type of person that wants to do something and then once I have access to it, I lose interest just about as quickly. Any tips, suggestions? If I were to look for a guitar, I'd want something cheap. Any ideas there?
You could look for a cheap guitar on craigslist and pick up some Mel Bay books. Give it a shot, and if you don't like it, then you could probably sell the guitar for about what you paid for it. And if you like it, you could take some lessons and move up to a better guitar.
