Choosing A Guitar That Suits You Best

When it comes to choosing the right guitar for you, the most important point to keep in mind is - what sort of music are you looking at playing?  If you are looking at playing Rock Music, the best guitar is to go for an Electric Guitar.

The key here is to start small, and grow big. I have seen so many people go out and buy the most expensive guitar before they can even play anything.

You may have your heart set on a new Fender or Gibson Les Paul. These are just some of the big brands and are not really recommended for beginners. 

Second hand guitars are another option to go for. There are some great deals going in the local papers.

When looking for a guitar, make sure you plug it in and try it out.


Grab the strap if need be and put the guitar around your neck. Get every possible bit of information you can before making a decision.

The best guitar to go for if you are looking at playing Classical Acoustic music is either Spanish classic acoustic guitar, or steel string acoustic.

Spanish classic acoustic guitars are extremely light and having nylon strings, which are very soft on your fingers. They come in a range of different sizes even very small size for young kids.  Spanish Classic Acoustic guitars are also a lot cheaper and easier to maintain than Steel String Acoustic Guitar. Steel String Acoustic Guitars are a little more expensive compare to Spanish guitars.

Again, with acoustic guitars, there is no need to go for big brands when you are first starting out.

The most important thing is that you feel comfortable playing it. Also, make sure your fingers fit around the guitar neck and it is not too big for you to play.

It depends on you as to whether you want to pick-ups or not. But remember to test it first before you buy...

There are many possibilities when comes to choosing a guitar for yourself, but more importantly, it's how you play it, which determines the sound. A guitarist with a good grasp of leads and strumming techniques is the key influence to a group's overall sound.
