Choosing The Right Guitar for Intermediate Players

May 15, 2008
You are done with your beginner lessons and your beginner's guitar doesn't seem to satisfy you anymore. It might be the time to buy a new one for your new level. It's time to buy a guitar for intermediate players. Buying a guitar for intermediate players is not as nerve racking as the time you bought your first guitar. This is because you already the basics and you already know what you are looking for. However, not because you are already familiar with guitars; you will just grab any guitar that you see from the music store with the thought that you already know how to tune it and play it. Below are some tips to help you with selecting the best guitar for an intermediate player like you:

1. Know what music you would like to play. Now you know the basics, you already know what style of music you are inclined to. The type of guitar that you should buy depends on what style of music you are playing or you would like to play.

2. It should be not too small, not too big. You will probably be playing much more than you did when you were in the beginner level. Thus it is necessary that you feel comfortable with the guitar you are using as you will be using this most of the time. Pick the right size of guitar. You should pick one which is comfortable to play. You probably do not want to mess up with your music just because of uneasiness and discomfort.

3. Listen and compare. The reason why you learned tuning in your basics is for you to learn how to compare sounds. Now you are keener with the guitar sounds so when buying a new guitar, make sure to listen. Try playing different guitars and pick one with the best sound.

Things to Remember

1. Not because you are already in the intermediate level means you will just go for any kind of strings. Check one which will make you feel comfortable playing. Nylon strings are highly recommended.

2. Check if the neck of the guitar is bowed back. If it is, do not buy it as the finger board will be too close to the string. If this is the case, the sound the guitar will be producing will not be pleasing to the ears.

With all the above tips, you are now ready to your next guitar playing level.
