Re: Thinking of picking up the guitar
I started on guitar before picking up bass and finally drums.
I recommend picking up an electric - an acoustic body is a pain to get your arm around.
You can teach yourself as long as you have determination obviously and it's not too difficult once you get past the sore hands and bad sounding chords.
It'll improve your drum playing also - you'll get a better sense of melody and harmony.
