I bought a guitar last week. It is a Martin DX1 acoustic with an electric pickup. I have wanted a guitar since I was a kid. I played on my dad’s guitar back then. My grandfather had a classical guitar. He took lessons and was pretty good. I dropped an Ovation acoustic years ago and that resulted in 9 stitches above my eye. I was never very good. I knew a dozen chords at one point but about 4 these days. I’m working through the lessons on JustinGuitar.com and I just ordered his beginner songbook. I’m at the point now where my fingers are not hurting when I play for more than 10 minutes. If you are interested in guitar, I highly recommend checking out that site.
