Geetar is a good overall newb friendly class, strong in both aspects of the game... But i will say that as far as pve goes it gets DULL late game as you are shoehorned into playing pure DoT style, meaning you must have certain mercs in your formation even if you don't like them as being without will seriously gimp you.
Best class for being versatile (ie, able to get any combination of mercs you want and not screw yourself over) is Archer, with Gun a close 2nd. However these classes will require good gear at endgame to be able to stand up and do well. Cannon is basically a weaker
If you want to be a melee class then Spear. The best melee is maniac (powersaw) but that one requires a lvl100 char in order to make, so not an option. It is a reroll class only. Sword is averagesauce for life, not weak but not strong. Axe is the red headed bastard stepchild of the game, exists only for people to laugh at.
tl;dr = Easy zzz time play geetar, pew pew tiem play archer/gun, melee play spear.
I have to agree though, guitar, gun, spear and staff mains have an easier time in this game, but they have lower than average defences. Sword main is good, the usual warrior class, it is the one with higher hp and defense too, if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure about axe, some time ago it was pretty popular due to freeze, but I don't know how it is now when compared to other jobs.
Cannon is awesome, since you get to carry a big big weapon around.
