Hey, happy tunes!
I haven't played in a while, not an expert at buying either, but...one thing you can do if you go to a guitar/music store is ask to have someone there play it for you to check out the tone. There are nice guitars out there for reasonable $. Make sure the guitar has easy 'action' I believe is the term. That means you don't have to have a grip of ms. universe to hold to strings down, very key in starting to play until those calluses on your fingertips develop!
A really, really great book for you would be "Rise up Singing". It is a compilation of 1,000 tunes and many are easy to play.(I look for A,D,E, and G chord songs!) Love that book!
I love to play various tunes, ones I've written, grateful dead, neil young, and assorted kiddie tunes and others from rise up singing. Guess I'll have to cut my fingernails and start playing again!
