    Acoustic.

    Is electric more difficult?
    I would say it's more complex because of the solos. Acoustic is best for beginners but I just love the feel of acoustic, so I stick to that most of the time!

    Have been for 6 years.

    I've come to a point where I don't know what songs to learn anymore. I tend to flick through my iPod and use the guitar tabs app.
    Can you play.... this?

    Just finished learning the intro but it's a lot harder since I don't have my acoustic with me... I'm playing on a dodgy electric.

    A beautiful mahogany fender to be fair it is electric-acoustic. Best of both worlds

    It's definitely a good riff. I tend to learn via YouTube.

    Awesome!! Ahh I see, yes I agree!
    Yeah it is! And I used to use YouTube, but my hands were too small for quite a few of the power chords so I end up having to re-tab everything anyway :lol:

    Yep, they sound really coolin my opinion. Not as soft as a nylon string, sounds brighter which is what I prefer.
    This is what they sound like

    Ugh, I just started a few month ago and MY FINGERS HURT...........

    I feel like quitting, but I really want to learn......

    any advice?

    You'll get there eventually, just keep it up.

    Keep practicing. Your fingers will eventually get to the point where they wont hurt anymore if you practice enough. I've been playing for 10 years (I'm 16) and now I've got to the stage where I can play things without any pain.
