When I entered high school, I felt the pressure to learn a musical instrument. All my friends seemed to know how to play the guitar or drums. Because I wanted to keep up with them, my only option was to learn it too. There were far too many great acoustic guitars, and I didn’t know what to buy at first.
And then I happened to read a first time buyers guide that allowed me to learn a thing or two. I bought a relatively cheap guitar. My goal was to get used to it first and transition to a better quality once I have the needed budget. I made the right decision at that time and wouldn’t have it any other way.
