  • Just get yourself a cheap acoustic for now. That way, if you find you don't want to play after all, you won't be out alot of money. One thing that I will warn you about before you even start, and most girls and women quit because of this--you HAVE to clip the nails on your left hand and the tips of your fingers will be so sore that you might give up after your first week , if you're not determined. The tips of my fingers looked like raw hamburger, I practiced so much. I had other musicians around to encourage me to continue, though and I did play rhythm in my dh's band for five years. My daughters learned this , too, but once you build callouses on your fingertips, you can slide down those strings with no problem.
