Of course, the choice is completely yours! I teach both electric guitar and acoustic guitar, in many styles and genres.

I’m tone deaf and have never even touched an instrument in my entire life, do you think I can learn guitar?

Absolutely, anyone can learn guitar - I have taught children guitar aged as young as six to adults in their late 70s. Seriously, if you have the passion for guitar you will certainly be able to play in it no time at all!
