Choosing Your Guitar - Beginners Guide to Guitar Episode 2


In our second episode of Beginners Guide to Guitar, we will help you decide which guitar is best for you! Having the right guitar will only make it easier for you to learn. Whether it is electric or acoustic, the right body size to fit you is important.

Learning to play with an electric guitar may be easier to hold and easier on the hands but it is all personal preference. If you choose to play an acoustic, be cautious when choosing the size. If it is too big, it will be much harder to play. If you are a smaller size, look for a parlour or folk size guitar. When you go shopping for your guitar, make sure that you are completely comfortable when holding and playing it.
