Purchased a cheap burswood electric up off ebay a week ago, the intention was to mount it on thebwall in my hallway. It was only a few quid, cost more for shipping than I paid for it. It arrived with the neck off but strings still attatched, so after assembly I felt the urge to 'have a go', so I have been practicing the D chord all week and stopping when my fingers bled... well began to hurt. I found these mini practice sessions strangely therapeutic and have decided to do some lessons.
I have my eye on a better guitar, a Yamaha Pacifica 112v and if I do get this, I might take it to a local guitar shop to have it set up properly so that the inevitable mistakes cant be blamed on the guitar
At 50 yo I have left it a bit late to learn, but its not harming anyone, free earplugs are available upon request
Anyways any advice would be gratefully accepted, its a long road but I am taking it one step at a time.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all.
