How to choose the right electric guitar for a beginner

Hello fellow musician! The electric guitar – a staple instrument in many genres of music. But with so many options, which guitar is the right one for you? Let’s take a look at some points to consider when making your decision.
Do you like rock/metal or folk/country? Do you prefer playing rhythm or lead? Are you left-handed or right-handed? These are just some of the questions that might come up as a beginner and it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why I’ve created this post to help guide beginners in choosing the best electric guitar for their needs, whether it be an acoustic, electric, 12 string or bass guitar. It goes over everything from types of guitars available and how to play the darn thing.

6 Steps on choosing the right electric guitar

A lot of people don’t know the difference between these two types, but they are actually quite different in many ways. The first thing to do is figure out what type of music will be played with it and where it will be used. If the electric guitar is going to primarily be for use on stage and recorded live, then that might make a better choice than an acoustic guitar that would not sound as good when amplified. There are also other factors like size and weight which should also have some say in the decision-making process.

2. Consider the size of your hands, as some guitars are better suited for people with smaller hands

If you’re a musician, then the size of your hands is an important consideration when choosing a guitar to purchase. Generally speaking, guitars with smaller body sizes are better suited for people who have smaller hands. But before making any final decisions on what type of guitar to buy, it’s always best to try one out in person so that you can get the feel for how it plays and feels in your own hands.

3. Think about the kind of music you want to play (e.g., blues, rock) and what genre appeals most to you

I know you want to be a rockstar. And I’m not going to tell you that it’s wrong, because it is awesome. But before you go out and buy the coolest guitar in the world and start practising your scales 24/7, take a minute and think about what kind of music do you want to play? What are your influences? What style of music speaks to you on an emotional level? There is no shame in liking pop or country music- but if that’s all there is for you, then maybe playing guitar isn’t the best fit for your life right now.

4. Do some research on different brands and models that suit your needs

I know it can be hard to find the perfect guitar, but don’t lose hope! You just need to do your research and you’ll have a great instrument in no time.

“Different guitar brands and models come with different features. What’s the right one for you? Let’s find out.”

This way, when it comes time to make the purchase, you’ll feel confident about your decision.
The first thing I recommend doing is checking out online reviews by people who are more experienced than you. The internet contains plenty of forums where musicians discuss their favourite brands and models in detail. These are great resources because there’s an opportunity for each person to share their own experience with the instrument they’re talking about. It
