    Hey, do u have any frendz who play the guitar or knnow anything about guitars?? If not then you should start with google... and use the following site to understand the basics of guitars: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitar

    You would need some time to figure out stuff but be patient. Once you have an idea of at least something (diffferent kinds of guitars.. acoustic..electric,,hawaiian etc), check out some guitar shops .. in Mumbai you have Furtadoes (near Metro cinema at Churchgate) and Bhargavas (down the lane of furtadoes) .. go to the shops and ask for an acoustic guitar, check it out, relate your research to the actual thing in your hands and i guess that should be some effort to start with.. then either find a good teacher, or find a freind who could teach you or learn it yourself by looking up the internet (which should only be a last resort as you'd risk learning the wrong things).. That much should put you on the road and you should be able to figure out your next move.

    Also, check out some other threads regarding guitar tutorials and guides to buying a guitar and you should be able to get some valuable info... Best o Luck!

    the original is hohner an american brand.
    hobner or hobmer are indian rip offs the hohner brand.

    before buying guitar decide how much u can spend on ur guitar.
    i wud recommend u to spend abt 5000, if not go for a givson or hobner.

    get a round hole compact granada guitar for around 3000 bucks
    DON'T go 4 a jumbo 1st up
