Buying a guitar
Now to start learning guitar the first thing you need is a guitar. LOL everyone knows that, but what people don’t know is how to select one or which one to go for.
Fix a budget: Guitars today come in a massive range, so, you need to decide what range to go for.
NOTE: Don’t go for the cheapest ones. That’s just a bad investment. Spending more money usually will be more effective in the long run. As its really just a onetime investment for year.
Knowing your taste of music: This thing don’t matter a lot but still few people may consider it. Its actually just related to the type of guitar you want-steel string acoustic guitar or with some pickups controls.
Find the best Guitar for your price: There are really a lot of places to buy a guitar from. Consider all of them. There are many YouTube videos out that reviews all types of guitars. Go through them to find the best pick. At the end, all that matters is the sound of the guitar and not the “branding’’ so choose wisely. Although most brand names provide superior sound, you should still just consider the sound factor over the brand factor.
Note: don’t stick strictly to your budget. If you are getting a better guitar at a little extra price, go for it, you will not regret that. Take my words on that.
At the end, your first guitar is going to be with you for quite long, if not lifetime. So, better do some research before actually buying a guitar.
Also don’t just go for the guitar alone as you are gonna need few accessories with it. For example, picks or gig bags etc. So, while going to a store to buy a guitar, instead of asking for discount on the guitar itself, ask them for some freebies say few picks and extra strings. This way both you and the store owner are happy. Yeah yeah...
