I've just started the guitar at 26 and my nephew at 6 wants to start playing too.

I looked at the guitars and want to get him a decent one but don't know if nylon strings are better for a kid than steel strings?

Any info appreciated.

Cheers

You should probably start him off with nylon.
Color
is
subjective.

Nylon, its softer. For future reference, things like this belong in the guitar and bass basics forum as this is for questions about the site.


Cheers, there were that many sections i didn't know where to start.

He probably needs a half sized guitar, too.

Ya nylon but at 6 years old he is going to get bored real quick with an acoustic guitar. They are better to learn on but when i got my first acoustic i got bored quick becasue i couldnt sound like Led Zeppelin or any of my other favorite bands. Then i got my first electric and i loved the sound and it made me want to start learning acoustic stuff again. That was just me though.
I know now what I knew then, but I didn't know then what I know now
