Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. Thought it was probably considered a hobby. I'm going down to visit my parents next week and I have a old cheap electric guitar and a drum set that I am thinking of bringing back. I never really got to play either. The drum set I got for Christmas one year but my sister had a baby in the house so I didn't want to wake her. The guitar I didn't know how to tune and finally got a tuner and the strings were old and broke. My dad had boughten me some new strings but I never put them on. I also only had a small amp that clips on the belt. Not even worth using. My question is to play electric guitar solos like from Metallica songs what type and size of amp do I need and what else? My MIL bought my husband an Esteban acoustic guitar that came with an amp but don't know anything about it. My husband learned part of Green Sleeves from one of his tapes that came with it but he is like me that likes the electric rock sound better so he might play the guitar. I don't want to spend thousands on something to start out with till we know that we are going to really put time and effort towards playing. If we like playing then we will buy better stuff. We want something that will make it sound decent like what you think of an electric guitar sounding like. I'm new to all the music stuff. I actually prefer drums more since I always loved watching the drummers play but I do love the sounds of the guitar.
