I've been struggling with lessons on my acoustic guitar. I've been told by many people I know who play that it is easier to learn on an electric. I've been trying to be a purist knowing that if I can get it down on an acoustic then it will be that much easier on an electric, besides most of the music I like is acoustic. I just about reached my quitting point when I asked my instructor about what I had been told. He agreed with everyone else's opinion that an electric is easier to learn on. He wasn't trying to sell me anything either, I bought elsewhere. Well long story short, I bought an Epiphone Les Paul and I can really fret that thing. It is much easier than my acoustic. I will be keeping my acoustic and re-visiting her as I make progress on the electric. Still prefer that acoustic sound but hitting the wall and not being able to really play anything is a drag.
