So you want to learn to play guitar? Rock on! We're happy you're here, and we're ready to help. The guitar is one of the most iconic, popular, and unique instruments out there.
The guitar is the centerpiece of many genres of music, and an instrument with a rich history. You could say that with all of the musical styles it touches, the guitar is one of the most eclectic instruments there is. I mean, what other instrument could find itself in country, pop, rock, reggae, and flamenco? That's just to name a few!
Guitar Lessons, Acoustic or Electric
If you're just getting started, you might be wondering if you should begin by learning the electric or acoustic guitar.
The great thing about learning to play guitar is that when you learn the basics on the electric or acoustic, you'll be able to move back and forth seamlessly between the two. Guitar chords are essentially the same on both acoustic and electric, so when you master one, you master both.
Do you want to learn acoustic guitar? Perfect, then you'll also have the foundational education needed to jump over to an electric guitar fairly easily. And while the two have differences, if you can play acoustic guitar, you can also play electric guitar with a little practice. So which should you choose?
Well, consider what kinds of music you like listening to that features the guitar. Do you love soul, blues, or rock? Then you might want to consider beginning with the electric. Or if you are a fan of country, bluegrass, or folk- you may want to consider starting with the acoustic guitar.
Oh, and something else that we're excited to share with you: Whichever route you choose, Musicians Playground is pleased to offer all of our members access to our premium guitars.
