08 Jul What’s the best guitar for a beginner?
Visit a guitar which has great customer service. You can visit The Music Centre, in Bedford, PMT Northamton, Coda in Stevenage for example. A lot of guitar stores rely on those that are just starting out as well as catering for the more experienced players. Understand the genre which you want to be able to play and try to go for a guitar that will suit that style. As a beginner your primary task is to accomplish the basics and in my opinion a classical guitar is the way forward. Once you’ve learnt these, you can then deviate and buy a guitar which is more suited to your style. However, having said this if you know electric guitar is the way forward, then buy all means purchase one, but also accept it won’t be the last one you buy as you’ll discover what you like and don’t like about it.
An alternative to classical guitars, could be acoustic guitars. The difference is the style and the way you play them as well as the sound it produces. The advantage is that you do not need to buy a practice amp to practice. All skills are transferable so it’s not a problem if learning the electric guitar is the way you want to go.
I’m happy to help you purchase your first guitar and even your second one.
