As a beginer of guitar, everyone will face with a problem, that is how to choose a guitar that suits me . As some haven’t leearnt much before they buy, so them think the expensive one of course will be the best. But is it true? In my opinon buying a right guitar will be better than buying an expensive guitar. Especially when you have praticed a lot and getting to know more about guitar, you will find out which the one you paid plenty of money on is not worth your money. Because it is just not what you really want. Then, what should we learn about when we purchase our first guitar? Let’s have a look at some very important key features to look at when deciding which axe will become yours.
Frist, ask yourself what style of music you want to play. There are three main types of guitars, and the type you choose will depend on the style of your music. Acoustic and Classical guitars look pretty similar, but they feel and sound different. Acoustic guitar strings are made of steel, and produce a big, bright, brash tone. Classical strings are nylon, and sound mellow. Mellifluous. Muted, even. If you want to play acoustic rock, or sound like Bob Dylan or Neil Young or Jack Johnson, you probably want an acoustic guitar. If all the songs in your iPod’s playlist have Italian names, or you’re Sergeant of Arms in the Andres Segovia Fan Club, you’ll want a classical guitar.
Electric guitars are physically somewhat easier to play, assuming they are properly adjusted, because they have a smaller body, thinner neck, and use lighter gauge strings. The pickups and amplifier do all the work of projecting the sound, so a lighter touch along with lighter strings makes it easier to play. An electric guitar needs to be plugged into an amplifier, which must be turned on before playing. For some, the extra effort that it takes to plug into an amplifier and turn it on may be enough to keep them from playing as often or taking advantage of a spontaneous moment to pick it up and play.
The most important thing is always try out many different brands, models, and types before you purchase a guitar. You may be amazed at what you will learn by doing this. The brand that you thought was not as good, may become your favorite choice. Playing many guitars will give you a taste of the feel that you desire in your guitar. Always try playing the guitar with, and without an amplifier connected to it. This way, you can not only hear what it sounds like, but it will help you separate the sound from the feel.
