Hi all, I'm glad I stumbled upon this forum at just the right time ! I am planning to learn the guitar in the near future and had a few questions. Can anybody suggest some good models for acoustic guitars ? (less than $200). I looked around online and Washburn D10s, Fender DG-10/11 seem to be good for beginners. Anybody has any thoughts on these (and any other) models ? And is it advisable to buy online ? (especially if you've never held one before) Also, can one learn to play without a teacher ? or is _crucial_ to get some guidance initially ? I'd appreciate if someone could put me on the right track ! Thanks, n00b.
