Hope this is the right pace to ask about this but I didn't know where else to put it:
I am starting to make a little bit of progress on learning to play the piano, and I am thinking about learning guitar as well now.
When I was browsing lists of "the best free plugin vst's" I stumbled upon a couple of guitar amps. Apparently native instruments guitar rig has a free version, and I found a couple others as well.
If you use one of these virtual amps, do you still need a real amp to play electric guitar? Or is it better to learn on an acoustic guitar?
