Well I've been teaching and playing for a long time and this is the acoustic guitar I've always recommended. It's tough and doesn't cost so much you'll get scared to taking it anywhere to play. It's nicely built so it will be fairly easy to play. Sometime soon you'll need to get some new strings so get them nice a light so they are easier to play go for 11 s on the 1st string you'll see this marked up on the string pack when you're buying these will be marked light' or super light' they make it easier to press the strings down when learning. Also a nice light pick (something like .43 mm) will ensure you strum and pick without digging in. You can go to a thicker plectrum (.71mm medium) later when you can play better. And read the instructions on the tuner pack these cheaper tuners are a bugger to use well on the first tuning but once in tune, they are easy to keep in tune. Trust me, this is the acoustic to learn on a well known manufacturer well constructed (they make hundreds of thousands of these to sell them all over the World) and a nice playing action. Put some heavier bluegrass strings on it once you can play well, like the D'Addario EJ19 s, and you've got a great guitar for a party or the beach; the knock-about guitar to compliment the expensive one you'll get sometime in the future. Get a Steve Kaufman or Russ Barenberg beginners book or DVD on plniyag bluegrass to get you started - that way you'll have some intersting stuff to play and avoid books with Twinkle Twinkle or Jingle Bells. Once you can play a few chords and pick out a melody, you can move on .Have a listen to Tony Rice if you want to hear what that style is like played very well. Don't worry that all this stuff will turn you into a bluegrass player these books will get you playing anything. It's good stuff to get started on and you'll be playing proper songs that aren't an embarrassment. You'll learn all the chords and how to play melodies on the top strings and the bass strings and often a mix of both. After learning these basics you can go on to any style of playing.
