Hey, is there any difference between teaching how to play an electric or an acoustic guitar? I want to purchase the subscription but I'm not really sure if there is a course dedicated to electric guitar (which I want to learn), and don't want to waste my time learning something that will be useful only on the acoustic
Difference between acoustic and electric guitar teaching
You can learn on either. The Fundamentals 1 & 2 courses on GT are fine with electric. Electric is also easier to learn with for a myriad of reasons, but, you will also need to outlay on an amp and TS cable unless the electric is a hollow body with some acoustic generated sound.
Small amps or amplugs are fine for learning & practice, and affordable great sounding options abound.
Here are four.
(i) NUX Mighty Plug MP-2 (advantage of direct plug in so doesn't require a TS cable)
(ii) Blackstar Fly 3
(iii) Blackstar Debut 15E
(iv) Blackstar ID:Core 40 V3
Any of the above will perform well in the learning & practice roles. The latter (iv), which is my second ID:Core 40, will serve purposefully for an aeon. I have and can personally recommend i, ii & iv as of excellence exceeding user expectation.
If we were to look at the the action on a decent electric guitar for beginners, it is much lower. Electric guitars tend to have lighter strings, a smaller body, and thinner necks, whereas acoustic guitars have a heavier body and a thicker neck to to support the tension of heavier strings.
Go for it - straight with electric.
manXcat is spot on, the Fundamentals course work just fine for electric and then you can go straight to either the Blues or Rock courses (or both!).
I can certainly vouch for the Blackstar Debut 15E as well. Excellent small, cool looking amp that's powerful enough for home, small venues and it's well suited to mike into a PA for larger. It'll take you from nothing to quite a lot before you'll need to look for something else at a very reasonable cost.
