Taking Some Of The Questions Out Of Learning Guitar

Jan 7, 2008
Learning guitar does not have to be as difficult as it may seem. Actually it is not difficult at all if you are willing to make some time for it and have a desire to learn more about music.

One of the main things to remember when just starting to learn how to play is remembering not to get frustrated and realize that getting to a point of playing a song will take awhile. Don't worry, you'll get there! At first, it will seem like everything you play sounds really bad. No one will want to listen to you, not even yourself. But with practice and time, you will eventually build your finger strength up and you'll find yourself sounding good in no time!

When beginning you should also concentrate first on learning the chords, changing between each of these chords and names of the strings. This will give you a solid base to go with. Concentrate on rhythm guitar first as well -- no sense getting all tied up with lead and solo guitar work yet. I know it is fun and sounds really cool but leave that for awhile and get yourself to be good rhythm player first. Trust me!

If you are just starting and wondering what kind of guitar to buy -- electric or acoustic. It is recommended to learn acoustic first but my opinion is that it does not really matter that much. You have to enjoy what you are playing and if that means starting with electric, by all means start with electric!

In the acoustic guitar market, there are plenty of types to choose from of all price ranges. Makes like Aria, Oscar Smicht, Epiphone and many others have some great entry level acoustic guitars. If you want to go more high end, there are brands like Taylor, Gibson, Takamine and Ovation.

If you like to rock and want to go the electric guitar route, there are tons of options for you here as well. Gibson, Paul Reed Smith, Ibanez and many more are available. There are also a lot of cheaper models out there to check out.

One of the coolest things about getting a new guitar these days is that you don't need to spend a whole lot to get yourself a quality instrument. It used to be that you had to spend a ton of money but now you can get a decent guitar for less than 300 dollars! Sure, you can spend thousands, but you don't have to.
