I'm 15, and just starting to learn guitar smile

Aw, thankyou everyone for your great advice! smile x

Yeah, I guess it does, I'm not really sure yet though. I listed some of the stuff I listen to in my first post, so I guess music like that. So a lot of variety? smile But I suppose mainly rock and alternative x

I know a few basic chords, (C, D, A, G and C2) and still learning, and I know one or two basic songs, but I really want to know the 'ins and outs' of everything guitar playing.

Right now I am 15, female (so slightly smaller hands) and playing a Valaencia TC 13 (so 3/4 of the normal size because I got it when I was about 7 and never really started playing it until now)

I want to know stuff like:
What are the best types of wood for a guitar?
What are the best acoustic and electric guitars?
What should I look for in a guitar when I'm buying one?
What are the best Bass guitars?
What are the major brands?
etc smile

I've always loved older-ish music e.g. Bob Dylan, Hendrix, The Beatles, Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Elvis, Zepplin, Talking Heads, The Clash, Bjork, Joy Division, Simple Minds, Blondie, Pixies, etc, I like some new music, but mainly into the alternitive genre~

So I really want to know things from an 'insiders' point of view.
I'm all into patience and what not so I know it'll take me a while to be able to play guitar super amaz-balls, but I right now I practice for about 30-50 minutes each day so yeah
Help is much appreciated! smile
