How do you decide what to buy when looking for guitars for beginners? It’s a pretty straightforward process, really. You go through the same process as when buying anything you consider important.
First, ask yourself this: What’s your budget for buying a new guitar? As a newbie, it would be wise to keep a low budget. But make sure you scout around for quality guitars in your price range.
Do your research. What type of guitar are you looking for? What kind suits your musical style? Find one that fits your style. Are you going to play an acoustic guitar? Or is an electric guitar more appealing to you? Go to music stores and try out several guitars. Take time trying each one, to have a sense of its physical and musical quality. Listen to its sound, the music that comes out of it. Do you like how it looks? Are you comfortable playing it? See which one feels right for you.
Close your eyes and see yourself playing this guitar for hours and hours. If you like that picture, then it’s time to buy that new guitar.
