I've been toying with the idea of learning to play the electric guitar. And with christmas coming up my parents don't know what to get me seeing as they couldn't get a 360. So I been thinking elec guitar.
I'm not planning on having lessons, I'm going to be self taught. I had keyboard lessons at school and was good when I was practicing but as soon as I got in the lessons I kept f***ing up so I dont want lessons.
So I'm just trying to find out some info:
How easy is it to do?
Is it easy for any age to get started? (I'm 20)
What's a good guitar to start with?
How long roughly will it take to get reasonable at it? (less than a year, more than a year, just a rough guesstimate)
How much does it cost to do? (ie equipment, books etc)
Thanks for any guidance. I know trigun's a guitar player so maybe thats a good place to start but anyone else who plays or knows how to play can help me.
