Cadrag posted a topic in Buying a GuitarGreetings. So i have a weird situation. I would like to learn to play guitar, but even though my favorite songs are stuff like rock and metal, I kinda prefer the sound of an acoustic guitar, even though i don't necessarily think i'll play country music or other stuff like it much (maybe just some classical since that's my second favorite genre). But since i am a beginner, not sure if it would be good to try on an acoustic at the beginning, or get an electric for metal since well it's made for it. Also one more thing, i can't really make much noise and i like to play at night, so if i get an acoustic i would probably have to put something beneath the strings where they're attatched to reduce the sound, but not sure if it's recommended or if it would hurt my progress since it would affect the tone. Though an electric would be better since i could just wear headphones. Should i remain stubborn and get an acoustic or just submit and get an electric?
