quick question, is it easier or harder to play a smaller acoustic guitar than a standard size?
i came up with 2 arguments:
a.) you can move your fingers to the frets faster smaller guitars
b.) it is easier to finger chords on a standard guitar.

i am relatively short, and my hands are small, and i have a hard time fingering most chords on this small guitar. i think the strings and frets are too close together, thus i keep getting vibrations from other strings. will a bigger fretboard and wider string spacing help, or just make the problem worse. i just ordered a rogue RA-100D (http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rogue-RA100D-Dreadnought-Guitar?sku=511192) because its only $80 and i want to experience it for myself, but i still want to hear feedback and thoughts

I am short and have tiny hands lol. I can play acoustic but due to my small frame it's awkward to hold. I find that electrics are very easy to play due to their size. :D
