Scrump Learning guitar: Acoustic vs Electric? (123* d) RE: Learning guitar: Acoustic vs Electric? 14 Mar 07

Any suggestions as to how an "old guy" :) like me can better master this here instrument?

Kerryguy, it would help us to advise you if you answered these questions:

1. Do you know any musical theory? I think it may be helpful to know some musical theory, but this isn't essential to play well (there are plenty of good guitarists who didn't/don't know any musical theory).

2. Have you played / do you play any other instrument(s)? If you already play (say) piano it may help to pick up another instrument, from the point of view of understanding how to play chords, etc.

Not essential as I said, but it helps us to know what your musical knowledge is.
