Starting with Guitar (Draft)
Your First Guitar
A guitar is a wonderful way to start your foray into the world of music. Picking the right first guitar can make the difference between a short-term hobby and a lifelong passion for creating beautiful tunes.
Acoustic or Electric
Both acoustic and electric guitars share the same basic shape and many components but are played quite differently. Many electric guitar lovers choose an acoustic because it is cheap, and end up giving up. Choose where your interest lies and go that way.
Particularly for younger beginners and those of smaller stature, full-size guitars make learning difficult. Learning something new is always a challenge - make things simple for yourself by choosing an appropriately sized guitar. A number of companies offer 3/4 size options that are an excellent choice.
Branded or Generic
Brand name guitars are not always superior to cheaper ones, especially in the beginner rage. Some smaller brands specialize in entry-level models which produce a better sound and guitar dealers can help you choose the best one.
This unique guide to get the best guitar for beginners gives you advice and suggestions, but choose the guitar that feels 'right' in your hands. Good luck with making beautiful music!
