Default Newbie question: Compound bow vs recurve vs longbow?

Hey guys, I'm a complete newbie here with no more than a few hours of experience. I met this old dude who got me into archery. He's got over 40 year's of experience, and is very helpful with advice, and allows me to use his bows (He has a traditional longbow, recurve, and compound) regularly. He recommends that I get my own equipment and start with a recurve. Being on a budget (Under $400), I'm considering on doing so. Should I get my own equipment? Would it help me a lot? Or should I have a feel around using his bows for now? Also, I'd like second opinion, should I go with the traditional longbow, recurve, or compound?
