ok, my little brother is wanting to learn how to play guitar, and his birthday is coming up soon, his hands are small, (he's going to be 8), he can't grip a normal sized guitar right now. What would be the best smaller guitar to get him? i am pretty sure i would get him acoustic, since it helps your playing ot start w/ one, but was wondering where to look. also, any beginner books u recommend, i went some books written in australia when i started(can't remember the name, they just had kangaroos on the front) and then went through hal leonard, what books should i use for him that are easier for a younger kid to understand. thanks!
