I got a Blueridge parlor-style guitar for about $1k. There are a couple of different models but I like the parlors because of the combo of the wide neck and steel strings. Con is no pick guard. LINK...

I recommend taking your guitar to a luther and asking him, or even take it to the clerk at your local guitar shop. No one is going to be able to give you an answer without taking a look at the...

I agree with Captaincranky. I'd stay away from ebay. Craigslist is actually a better option because you are able to go see the guitar and play it before you buy it. What's most important is getting...

"House of the Rising Sun" is an excellent song to learn to fingerpick on. The picking pattern is extremely simple, and you are able to use four fingers (thumb, pointer, middle, and ring) thus...

If this is true then...

I had the same problem a few years ago, and I think you are approaching the problem the same way that I did; by waay overanalyzing strumming patterns.

I think you are over analyzing this. If you bring your index finger up play a lower string, it should sound about the same. Is there a particular song you are trying to play?
