Hi, i'm a singer and a songwriter, but i want to learn to play an instrument too. I'm twenty years old, but dedicated.
I'm torn between acoustic guitar which everyone tells me is the logical choice (the cliche is my reply), or the violin which i love the sound of.
Could you tell me the pros and cons of learning each?
How long on average can i expect to take to reach proficiency if not pro in either of these?
I can only afford a half hour private lessons a week, but will practice about two hours a day.
Which instrument is the easiest to handle? (especially for a left hander).
