hey cazador keep in mind that with electric you can crank up the gain on your amp and you have distortion,and with distortion you can cover up a lot of sloppiness and mistakes,with acoustic you have to be clean or you and others can hear the mistakes.
so if you want to be good at the guitar i would highly reccomend you stay with the acoustic for a while and get your fingers trained to make chords properly and get your picking and strumming down.
that was some of the best advice that i got when i started out,thought i would pass it along to you.also keep in mind that a acoustic can be taken and played anywhere,lakes,parks,etc. electric you must have electricity.the convience speaks for itself.and believe me there are a lot of very cool acoustic songs out there,metallica,etc,etc...
best of luck..
I wanna keep my accoustic for all the reasons above but i love the electric.i have been playing for a month and i have all the basic cords down but im have probs with my strumming:(
