Acoustic Or Electric Guitar?

You've decided to take up the guitar. Now comes the tricky part, which guitar is right for you to play? Many choose an Acoustic or Electric Guitar when beginning to play! Let us first discuss the significant distinctions between Electric and Acoustic guitars.

The primary difference between an Electric and Acoustic guitar is that the Electric needs an amplifier to be heard loudly, while the Acoustic can be played and heard without the usage of an amp. The body of the Acoustic is hollow and designed to output sound a decent level. Electric guitars, on the other hand, are intended for amplified sound. A compromise between the two is an Acoustic Electric guitar. These can be played both acoustically and electrically given that they have the electronics that allow an amplifier to be used and are like a standard Acoustic in that it is loud enough played alone!

OK, now that we've quickly evaluated the significant differences between the Acoustic and Electric guitar, we can now continue to the finer distinctions.

The Acoustic Guitar is much lighter but is a bit larger than an electric. Its weight is less because it is hollow and made of relatively thin materials. The quality of an Acoustic Guitar has a direct effect on its tone. The strings of an Acoustic are often higher off the fretboard then an Electric which makes it harder to play because more force is needed to fret the strings. Acoustic guitars are harder to adjust because the bridge may need to be modified to correct intonation. An Electric has additional hardware which makes it simple to adjust the bridge. The electric guitar is heavier since many have a solid body.  An interesting variation is the Hollow-Body which is lighter and has a warmer sound. Lighter strings can be used on an electric which are easier on the hands.

If you start on an Electric, you will have difficulty transitioning to an Acoustic. Going from an Acoustic to an Electric is no problem! Learning on an Acoustic can discourage a beginner while the light strings and low action make an Electric a joy to play. No matter which you choose, make sure your guitar is set up correctly. You can do everything right and still sound wrong if your guitar is out of adjustment. And make sure to keep it adjusted, it is not that hard when you learn how!

Well, there you have it. This covers the broad strokes, and now you can start your detailed research before making a choice!

Learn to Play The Guitar!

Many options exist to assist you in learning to play the Guitar. Online lessons, find a local teacher, Youtube, the opportunities are endless. Search online a little bit, and you will quickly be overwhelmed. I have a different recommendation. Music theory is unnecessarily complicated and probably is the most prominent roadblock to learn to play.

If you have any friends who play, there are two primary types of players. One has studied theory and can explain everything, but you won't understand much of what he is saying. The other player picked up the guitar at some point, read nothing, took no lessons and plays by ear. The second one can't explain anything, but he sounds great and can quickly pick up his guitar and fit in with any group of musicians no matter what they are playing.

Well, the Improvise for Real method supplies a book, and other learning tools which teach you to improvise and yet provides enough theory without the jargon that they teach in school. In fact, he numbers the notes 1 to 7, and insists you spend most of your time enjoying your instrument. And the course applies to any instrument except the drums.

Check out the following book, if you like what you see, you can get all his teaching materials for about $200. The great things are the backing tracks. They are extremely complete and are an invaluable learning too. This method is everything your child needs to get started right!
