Rue Posted December 17, 2018 Report Share Posted December 17, 2018 Okay - likely a dumb question best answered on a guitar forum...but I'm sure someone on MN knows... Disclaimer: I know nothing about guitars - be kind. Two years ago I traded a violin I wasn't playing - for a guitar. Goal: Learn the basics (no rush) so that: A ) I can strum a few chords to be able to sing for the entertainment of my parrots or - if I ever got good enough - accompany easy fiddle tunes. B ) I can pick - enough so I can amuse myself with Pachelbel's Canon... I was advised to get a nylon string guitar and came home with a very nice classical guitar. Well - I find the guitar too big and unwieldy. Enough so that I don't muck with it as much as I'd like to. Plus I don't really want to learn only classical either. Gotta learn Smoke Over Water and Bohemian Rhapsody too... On Thursday I discovered that there is a crossover guitar! Who knew? Narrower fingerboard...and designed for general use - sounds like what I actually need! Now what? For as little as I use it - get a different guitar? Trade the classical for a crossover? Would it be worth it? Am I missing any other key bits and pieces? I know I want acoustic and not electric and that I don't want laminate...and am wondering about truss rods...
