Hi! It is actually better to learn on an acoustic, as you can master the basics and it is less complicated (no electronics etc) and you should learn to pick notes as you will need to be able to do this when you ge better. Electrics are easier to play as they have thinner necks and you can play more easier on the higher frets. If you start on acoustic you can then play electric more easily. You can have lessons for both or just one depending on what you want. Remember however that the acoustic is harder to play.I have lessons for acoustic and teach myself electric.
