5 misconceptions about learning guitar. No. 5

Children can't start learning guitar before age 7 years. This is common misconception with no factual basis. You only have to look at an instrument like violin which in my opinion is more difficult and starting at age 2 years is almost the accepted norm. Children can start whenever they can hold a small guitar or perhaps ukelele to start.
Guitars are expensive. I am still surprised by the number of people who say they want to learn guitar but they can't afford to buy one. You can buy a basic guitar for about the same price as dinner for two at most restaurants.

You can get really decent guitars VERY cheap nowadays, especially if you live in a big town/city. We have a Facebook group for the county I live in that allows residents to sell to each other. I've seen some nice electric Fenders in excellent condition go for around $30!
