I'm 15, and recently I've watched a few electric guitar performances on YouTube. It got me really interested in electric guitars. Now, I've never played a guitar before, neither electric nor acoustic, i kind of did, I'll explain in a second.
My grandfather owns a few acoustic guitars and he's pretty good at it. When i was 11 he taught me how to play Smoke on the Water, a pretty simple melody. I didn't practice that song much, I played it a few times for fun, what I'm trying to say is that I kind of know how a guitar feels on my lap and I know how it feels to play the strings. Apart from that, I never played them.
I wasn't interested in guitars before, but recently I have. I don't like acoustic guitars, I like electric ones. Anyway, I have a question: I''m a beginner. I'd like to learn how to play an electric guitar. Should my first guitar be an electric or acoustic? Which one is easier to play and easier to learn to play?
And a bit sillier one, could I cut my fingers on a guitar's strings? I'll be glad if someone answered my questions, I'm eager to learn how to play an electric guitar.
