Question about choosing type

Post by sonictherevenge » July 9th, 2012, 3:27 pm

This might should go in another forum sorry if it does. Anyway I was recently given an acoustic I'm almost certain it was very cheap (truetone). But anyway I've heard that trying to play a cheap acoustic is much harder than a electric or higher end acoustic brand. So should I stop and wait till I can afford a better one or electric and amp. Or keep going plugging through it. Also what key things should I look for to make sure this one is as easy as possible. Unfortunately there is no places within 130 miles to take it and have it checked.

thanks. Mike

You will learn a lot about what you want from a guitar by playing a lo-spec instrument. Keep on strummin'

If noone told you yours is hard to play, would you think it was??

Keep on playing, and hammering away at that fretboard!!! As you progress you will learn what you do and dont want in a guitar.
