Default guitar beginner

Hey! I am new here and this is my first post.

I really love the guitar thing but I ve never got the chance to play.
Are there any time/age limits? I mean, most people start playing guitar early.

I am almost 18 years old and thinking about start learning guitar. Is too late for me?

Any advice is welcome!!!

P.S. English is not my first language, so forgive me if there are any mistakes...

Hi Peter.
The sooner you start the farther you'll get.
It's not when you start, it's how much you put into it. Work and study hard and you'll get there.Really.

Your spelling is flawless and punctuation almost perfect. Better than many whose native language is english. Carry on, sir!

There's never a time limit on these types of things.

Enjoy yourself. [= Let us know how that goes.

Thanks for your words!

Can I learn the basics from the internet? There are some sites for beginners. Are they really helpful??

It's difficult for me to attend some classes with a real teacher this period. I'm going to the army and I will be home only two days a week.

If you'd like, I can help you with the basics. I've taught a couple of people in the past.

PM me if you need some help.

Of course there's no time limit! There are lots of online tutes on the internet and youtube etc, you just need to search around. Chord books are also great for beginners. There's nothing wrong with starting now! Plus, 18, your young!

Thanks!!!

OMG! I cant imagine what my dad going to do when he learn that I want a guitar!!! He may buy the guitar and crash it to my head! LoL

Can you help me choose a guitar....? There are so many out there. I want something with a good price and it should be common, so I can find it easily.

Are you wanting an acoustic or electric guitar? IMO it's best to learn on acoustic and then go to electric. I'd buy a cheap beginners guitar, maybe like a Yamaha acoustic or something? You can always upgrade when you're getting more serious.

I was told my Jasmine Takemine is very worth it, as I believe it is.

If you just wanna screw around, they sell guitars in FYE. xD
