Question: Guitar for a beginner!?
so i want to learn how to play the guitar!

does anyone know what would be a good guitar for a beginner (one that doesnt cost too much but one that i could use for a while and i'm 16!.) i was thinking of an acoustic guitar cause i like the sound better!.

and are there any good books or internet sites that i could learn from (because i kind of just want to learn on my own and not make my parents pay for lessons if i dont stay with it!. people say that it would be better to take lessons, but i want to do something on my own so i can look back and say "i did this all by myself =]")

thank youuuuuuuuuu!! =]Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
get an ibanez starter kit!. they go for 100 bucks and bring everything you need to get started!.
-to learn go to youtube and find a vid on how to learn to read tabs
-then go to ultimateguitar!.com and find tabs for a song you like
-then go to chordbook!.com and learn the chords to the song
-by learning more songs you like you learn more chords and get faster at playing and then you can say you learned on your own
