    Electric is easier to learn.
    But I would recommend acoustic first, because for the most part, anything on acoustic is 10x easier on electric.
    Hope I helped.


    Forfeit the game, before somebody
    else takes you outta the frame.
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face, you can't
    run the race the pace is too fast
    You just won't last.

    Feel free to add me to either:

    I've heard learning on acoustic will make you a better player, as you will have stronger fingers and such, as playing on an electric is so much easier.

    It's not about which one is easier or harder, it's just their of preference.
    Sadly, my fingers are too short+stubby to use a guitar, but I'm sure OP has long fingers.

    Electric guitar IS actually harder to play than the acoustic.

    well I guess so, but I haev incredibly long slender fingers, so I can play both, except i play Electric worse because the frets are hell small

    That's still your opinion.
    I know plenty of people who found electric guitar to be easier.
    I don't know, maybe it's because they find the electric guitar more fun than acoustic, so they had more motivation to use the electric instead.

    Well of course whichever one you 'want' to do will motivate you into that one more than the other.

    They have the same general concept. Depending on what you're aiming for is the challenge. I'd say that electric is easy but it costs money to get the right equipment.... acoustic calls for more talent and creativity because you can do more barebones dry with an acoustic guitar than you can with an electric guitar and just 1 amp.

    In my honest opinion, I'd say acoustic is harder, but sounds way more beautiful. Like i said, electric guitar cost a lot of money. If you can get a great grasp on acoustic guitar, you can do even way better on electric than people who start off with electric guitar. Talent won't always come easy, and if you just want to get into something expecting for it to be easy, then you'll just be less than mediocre and not necessarily satisfying anybody....not even yourself
