Acoustic hun - I self taught myself - Get some "Guitar Tab" stuff - shows the chords as the positions the fingers need to be in - with practise she'll get better at switching from chord to chord et viola! You can live off her success! :lol:

Easy under a ton - how old is she? You can get 3/4 size guitars for smaller people . . . .

Buy a good one, none of that Home Bargain rubbish. I taught myself with books, but there is so much on the internet today that will help. I think a book is the best idea though.

Ok - still get a nice full size starter set for under a ton - try and look in local music shops, they have nicer kit than Argos etc. and will give good advice :)

The only problem with Argos is that the guitars will not have been stored correctly. A dedicated music shop would be best.

Get her to take her time with it. It is trying to hard that causes discouragement and giving up.

Sassie - yamaha f310 acoustic guitar gets really good reviews and you can get a starter kit for about £80. There have been some deals posted on here for it (woolies Nov 08) with lots of useful info.......

I'll find the thread

You can get the basic pack for about £88 from Argos

you live in Shrewsbury, WOW, posh!!!!

We had a music shop in our town, it is now closed, luckily my Dad had an old guitar, have you checked Freecycle Sassie?

Many people buy guitars with the intention of learning, or for their kids who lose interest, it may be worth asking on there.


yep, lived her all of my life, well from the age of 1 - lol

i canna get to grips with that freecycle place

Definitely get her to look on youtube for tutorials, I bought my daughter a keyboard and she played chop sticks on it for 2 years, then discovered youtube and now can play loads of songs, it's quite scary, you walk passed her door and hear the Fray or maybe Rihanna... lol

She sounds like a pro, and can show off to her mates lol

Anything to keep her quiet....
