I am just starting and have been told it would be easier for me to learn if I used a 4 string with amp as apposed to acustical. is this true? I am 73 always loved guitar but never had the opportunity to learn. Can you help me with the question?
By four string, do you mean bass? They are quite different instruments to guitars.

If it's guitar you want to learn then you can pretty much learn on any guitar which is set up properly. People will argue about the benefits of acoustic over electric and vice versa, but that time thinking could be better spent practising - play whatever will make more excited about playing.

And you're 73? I think we have a new elder on this forum
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
