How to Choose a Guitar
Choosing the right guitar is a very personal decision. The style
depends on several factors. The basic choices are acoustic, classical,
(nylon ) electric, and acoustic /electric. There are other variations,
but these are the main choices. Beginners will want to choose a guitar
that will be easy to play. Dave will help you find a guitar that will
grow with you.
There is some physical awkwardness and finger
pain in the learning process. Dave will help you choose a guitar that
won’t impede the learning process. A classical guitar with nylon strings
eases finger pain. Another good choice is a solid body electric with
very close "action", meaning that the strings are very close to the
fretboard. A good acoustic with close action is another sound option.
music genre you’d like to play also influences which guitar is right
for you. Naturally, if you want to play rock you’ll need an electric
guitar with an amplifier. Soft rock, country, or folk are best played on
a quality acoustic guitar or acoustic electric. Classical guitars
(plain or electric) are best known for Latin or classical music but also
a good fit for other styles.
