As I have mentioned, my eldest daughter is learning the guitar, she attends lessons 3 times a week. At this time she is just using a simple acoustic guitar, and she really enjoys playing it. Her sister even asked for one, though she is only five. If my eldest chooses to move on to an electric guitar, maybe we will pass her old acoustic on to the youngest. If she does decide to give an electric, we will have to get her an amp. I would like to check out affordable rivera amps to see if it is something she could use. Can you use amps with acoustic guitars? I don’t know.
