So I'm wondering if anybody here has picked up the guitar? And has any advice on where to start? Books, videos, forums etcettera. I'm probably gonna pick up a cheap acoustic and learn on that for a while I reckon.
I picked up the bass about a year ago and I've never looked back. I love playing drums but it's really nice to be able to create some melodies instead of just beats and grooves. It also increases your chances of getting into a band, if you're good enough at both instruments. So yeah, I'd reccomend it.
