I know its very long... but please read it. I beg of u. A complete rookie and extremely ignorant about guitar. Know nothing of any sort except well the history, the gods, the names of the parts and a little bit more[learnt it all from wikipedia and a book]. I had this dream about playing a guitar and truly have become passionate about it since then. Since that day, not even a single day has passed without me dreaming about getting a guitar. Every night i have the same dream about me playing a nice guitar, nicely. Have bookmarked all the sites and downloaded a load of books from internet. But the ground reality is that i haven't ever had a guitar in my hand. Now, i am living in kurukshetra [the mahabharata fame], some 200 km away from delhi. I am planning on buying a guitar in a few days [after 19th may]. I can shell out a maximum of 7-8k and i wish to have a steel strung acoustic. Please help. What should i buy. I do not wish to get some crap and later on getting frustrated not being able to play nicely. i was thinking of yamaha, gb&a and granada[though i didnt come across any granada online]. Please someone help and for heavens sake don't look confused yourself, it really knocks the daylights out of me when a teacher is confused.
