Before you start learning how to play a guitar, there are a few steps to go through in order to create a good base for your learning experience. The first thing to do is to find the right guitar that suits your needs. Depending on your age and skills, you might need to get your hands on a guitar that feels comfortable and doesn’t hurt your fingers from playing. If the strings hurt after 5 minutes of playing, you may need to switch to a guitar that uses Nylon strings, so you can get used to it because if you can’t even play for more than 10 minutes, it’s probably going to be a much longer process to get to an intermediate level. Next, If you are past that stage of being a beginner, you are probably looking for something more hands on; perhaps an Electric Guitar.

Here’s something to watch out for, especially if you are a beginner. Strings on an electric guitar are much softer than on an average acoustic. Of course, if you are spending thousands of dollars on purchasing a high quality guitar, then it doesn’t matter whether you pick an acoustic or an electric, as the quality of guitars in a high price range will generally be very good. However, if you are a beginner, then you must start with something low end, and this is because once, you have learnt how to play well on a low end guitar, your performance on a good guitar will naturally be very good. It’s like once you have learnt how to ride a Fixie (a bicycle with no gears), you will naturally ride better when you have multiple options on your bike.

If you have gone past the beginner stage and looking to purchase an electric guitar because you have developed a taste for loud distortion music, what’s also important is to choose the right Amplifier to match your guitar. A good quality Guitar Amp will make you sound better. Ever wonder why people are never happy with their guitar tone? It’s because they often don’t pay attention to what fits well with their guitar.
