I want to learn to play country guitar. Right now, I'm at a point in my life where I can dedicate a few hours a day to practice. (3+ hours) But I'm a total newbie to music period and live in a dreaded apartment. I get that I should get an electric guitar, studio quality headphones and a low-wattage amp with headphone jack and/or a computer interface. In-order to practice without driving my neighbors to an untimely suicide. But I can't find anywhere that talks about selecting that equipment in relation to using it for country music. Probably an affordable acoustic guitar is in my near future. I have a place to play loudly but it's a 1-2 hour drive back and forth.
So is there anything I should avoid or look for in the above electric equipment given that I'm considering using it for country?? Or does it even matter?
