    ok weird one

    I've always fancied having a go at the guitar but never have.

    If I wanted to mess around and try a little, should I go for an electric? an acoustic? a combination? Any other hints/tips ?

    i had spanish classical lessons when i was living in spain as a child, still got a little bit and there's some things you never forget, i still have the guitar -it's beautiful and Jon taught himself- he has electric and accoustic guitars. I'll ask him how he did it when he gets home- think he subscribed to an online course- watched you tube videos etc. He found it very relaxing

    Any advice more than welcome

    I'm under no illusions about how terrible I'll be but I just want to try it as a relaxation technique to get away from the computer screen for awhile

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Oh, my dream guitar is a Martin 0018!I am not worthy! I am not worthy!

    I noticed that if you have garage band on your computer there are lessons that you can download. They looked pretty cool

    I taught myself and have just started teaching a friend's son. I'd say get a steel string acoustic and a couple of books and prepare to get sore fingers.

    For sure...ouch!! Get a decent one, perhaps second hand that has a nice action, strings close to the frets that do not require great amounts of force to make chords.
