Give yourself a fun little outing and go to Paracho, outside or Uruapan, and buy a guitar there. They make all kinds of stringed instruments, but are known for their world class guitars. Yes, they can be very expensive, but they also have very nice guitars to learn on for excellent prices. It's all part of the adventure!

Yes, 4 hours should get you to Uruapan, through the bus change and to Paracho.

You could choose between flamenco guitars, classical, acoustic, whatever type you might be interested in. Even if you don't buy anything, it's amazing, has a great music/guitar museum, and lunch is always fun, too.

Going to Paracho is a great idea. It isn't far - can be done as a day trip, or an overnight is also fun, and allows one to see more of this beautiful country. We found all he shop owners to be cordial and very informative.

Karina, I brought an inexpensive travel guitar with me; it's a surprisingly fit Chinese made steel string acoustic electric. Over the past fifteen years I have given, donated or sold 7 or 8 instruments on departing Mexico. I'm no pro, but I know a bit about strumming a six string down here, and you are welcome to email me. olyzihua@gmail.com
I'm staying in La Madera.

Yes, Armando Morales has his shop, on Av. Cuauhtémoc, just past the Cinemas, heading towards the library, same side of the street.
He does not speak much English, though.

His Facebook is

Try this link to some guitars he posted...

Lessons:
Ralph Alcaraz is an excellent player, and speaks excellent English.
He has a page on Facebook, too.
Not sure though IF he gives lessons.

I have been playing since 1967, so I can show you, too.
Chords, notes, songs.

My roots are in 60s-70s rock, "oldies", blues-rock, that is what I know & play, IF that interest you.

U can click on the envelope to contact me should you so desire.

Nevertheless, irregardless of the genre of music, one still needs the basic knowledge of chords and ALL the notes up and down the fretboard.

Toin' it up!

Hola Karina

U are welcome.
I may add, (if U haven't already thought of it), You Tube has thousands of tutorial videos, all levels, beginners to advanced.
I use it when I get stuck on a chord(s) riffs, etc., or don't want to spend the time figuring out the song by ear.

And, should you "circle" back with me, I do not charge anything for the first couple of sessions, in order to see if I can help you, and, to see IF U can benefit from my assistance. IF so, then it is still very inexpensive, 20 pesos per session.
