Q: What best advice can you give for someone trying to learn to play for the first time? Any certain style that is best, when learning to play? Expand however you like!
A: First off, Thank you for taking time to ask me a question and really just stopping by here. You Rock!! To answer your question; if it is guitar a you or a person is interested in learning, I would first start out on acoustic, you can take it practically anywhere with you and doesn't require any electrical hook ups. Plus it is a little more difficult to press your fingers down on. (will build up dexterity much quicker) Hold the guitar in a very relaxing and comfortable way for you. Probably sitting down. I would say start one string at a time learning the names and notes of each for the first 3 frets. And then learn the basic major and minor chords to start out. As far as style go's that will be developed as you go especially if you tend to like a certain type of music or so. This is just the very tip of the tip of the iceberg!! :) Thanks again!
