This instrument requires a little more committment than other instruments children might play, for the simple reason that strings have to be pressed down quite firmly to obtain a clear and clean sound. Especially if playing an accoustic guitar, electric guitar is a little easier where string pressure is concerned.
This pressure can at times cause discomfort to the childs fingers. However if the child and parent persevere, you will eventually have a budding musician who will always want to be playing their guitar constantly to his or her friends & family.
