I still don't see much factual info on why learning electric guitar is preferable.
He/she wants to learn electric guitar. It's as simple as that.
well, you don't know about any of the schools I mentioned. If you know a lot about classical techniques, then share them with us. I have mentioned the very basics - these things are base knowledge for classical players. And you didn't know them.
And I agree - the kid should learn on the electric, if that's where the interest lies.
The issue I had was with your post when you were giving completely false information regarding the benefits of learning on electric as opposed to classical (e.g. thickness of strings etc etc). There were false arguments flying around about why electric is best, and I was addressing that issue, since some of the points made were complete nonsense.
The infrormation you were providing was wrong, and that's just a fact.
