How hard is it to learn to play the guitar(details)?

Hi. I’m 12. I like to write songs, a lot. and I think it would be cool to be able to PLAY my songs. I’ve always kinda wanted to play the guitar.
So heres my questions:
1. How hard should it be for me to learn guitar?
2. How long does it usually take to learn to the point to be able to play songs?
3. (the big one) how much does a a normal guitar cost?

    k well, i’ll say your at a good age 4 learning because learning guitar takes a life time to master. so yep it can be very tricky if u don’t know anything bout music theory. well, it shouldn’t take long to learn songs because ppl have tabbed them out. for question number 3, it may probably run ya bout 300 or 400 w/o an amp

    each really depends on your learning speed.

    1.No real answer for this. Depends how committed you are in practicing

    2.Depends on the difficulty of the song. There are a lot of simple ones you can play almost instantly (smoke on the water)

    3. A smart choice would to buy a starter kit (picks, electric guitar, amp, guitar case) that goes around 150$-200$. The sound isn’t the best but it definitely useful for learning and finding out if you want to go further.

    1.takes ALOT of practice.hurts your fingers at first too.but it’s worth it.
    2.not too long.alot of songs only have 3 or 4 basic chords.
    3.you can get them pretty cheap used.like $100

    1. The major difficulty is moving beyond the painful fingertips until the calluses arrive. After that, your practice sessions are much smoother.

    2. It takes as a minimum three months to play a few simple songs–if you practice and work hard at it everyday.

    3. A good acoustic guitar for a beginner could run about $300. I don’t recommend starting out on an electric guitar because all the distortions, buzz, echos, and other abberations coming from the amplifier do not make a guitar player.

    Hi Anette,This blog post is featured by Tarja on her fboeaock page. This is her comment, in case you haven’t seen it yet:Tarja:”Today I found this in earMusic fboeaock. Very kind and nice gesture from Anette who has had a tough time in her career because of me…without me having anything to do with it Anette, thank you for listening to my new album and I am very happy that you liked it. The best of luck for your future!”I am actually surprised that you two don’t share bad feelings about each other. Since we, the fans, don’t know a lot about what’s going on inside the band’s “kitchen” nor the people around “it”, most of us assumed that things aren’t good between you and Tarja. I am a very old fan of Nightwish and Tarja and when you became the frontwoman of the band, I have had very hard time getting used to that change. In time though, I did and I started to like you. The fact that you are not with NW anymore is pretty upsetting, it almost feels like when they fired Tarja. I hope that things are working out for you anyway. Wish you all the best! You are an amazing person.Alex
