I'm still on bloody rookie level, let's say always exercising for fun at home, without any pressure. A while ago, I had classic concert guitar. This was a horrible, huge and probably kind of low end piece and absolutely unplayable for me. With my short fingers, I wasted a real amount of time on this BS! Ok, trying first chords was okay to, back then, but the fun of course didn't really came. But now, I finally got an electric guitar (humbuckers) with a handy, small neck and THIS totally changed the thing for me! Exercising over headphones, with the super nice chorus option active on the amplifier and already, the fun appeared! And I even started with plectrum and this time, it WORKS! So now it seems, that this will be the real good basic for me to improve my exercising.
