I've been thinking about learning to play the Guitar, and after watching Brian Live(he's amazing!),I am totally inspired and ready to learn. But I know almost nothing about playing yet. Can anyone give me any tips? Which type to purchase first,etc.?

Start off with classical guitar then work your way up.

Thank you,dear. I'm writing that down. Is it fairly easy to learn? I've played Flute for almost 20 years so I should have the finger dexterity...

Well, when i first started to learn i started off with classical guitar because its simple. Then i worked my way up to more complex guitars.
Once you get on with the electric guitar i recommend you put huge speakers up against the neighbours wall and blast out for a few hours.

Thank you,Flashy. You're such a Darling;)Now tell me,what are the names of these? I've heard the term 'Acoustic',but not really sure what it defines.

Acoustic is simply a guitar that does not produce or enhance sound electronically.

Just get some cheap guitar that stays in tune, and then learn all the chords... then scales... then your set. Buy a book which shows you the chords and scales. Then buy a Fender Strat or a Gibson Les Paul, or a PRS, or whatever fits your fancy.
