Also, what else do you need to play an electric guitar? I know I need an amp, but I don't know what kind to get, or how expensive they are. What about the little things that people forget, and have to run back to the music store for later? Picks? Extra strings?
Last, any recommendations for music books to learn from? I can't really afford lessons from anyone, but I might be able to guilt a friend of a friend into giving me some advice, but after that, I'm on my own.
Any advice would be very helpful. Thank you so much!
