Dear …………….., 

Model Answer:

Dear Paula,

Hope you are doing great. You’d be glad to know that I’ve lately taken a keen interest in music, and in particular, in playing the guitar. I am practising music in our college and planning to buy a guitar soon. As you are a promising musician and a great guitarist, I wish to get some information and tips from you.

Could you please advise me on buying a suitable guitar for me? This would be my first guitar, and I’ll primarily use it to learn to play this musical instrument. This doesn’t have to be by a famous manufacturer or with any special features. As there are so many types available in the market, I am a little overwhelmed and confused. I’m not looking for an expensive guitar now, and I hope you will suggest something that would suit my budget and requirements.

I’d also like some guidance and tips from you, and perhaps, I can come and visit you sometimes next June. Would you recommend any book or online resources for me? Your advice would be valuable to me. Thank you, in advance.

Take care, and stay fine.

Warm wishes,
