Learning an instrument is not that hard after all. You need to have interest and passion in it. Once you have that, the next thing that you need is the time for practice. I learned guitar before but stop halfway. I am envy to see those who can play the guitar well without going to class. They learned and practice all by themselves. Maybe this is so call the talent they have in them. The guitar that I owned is the Yamaha brand, my uncle bought it for me. If you are looking for one, Godin Guitars will be a good choice as well.
