What type of guitar do I have to buy ?
I am a beginner and I want to buy a guitar to learn but I do not know the type to buy. Can I get any recommendations?
There are basically two types of guitar namely the rhythm guitar and the bass guitar. The bass guitar is responsible for that thick background groove or that you hear beneath a song. If you are interested in getting the bass guitar, you can get a basic four stringed bass guitar to start with.
However if you are interested in getting the rhythm guitar, you can get an electric type that will require a combo to amplify the sound or you can get a semi acoustic guitar that can work without any combo to amplify the sound and it can also be connected to a combo to amplify the sound if you want something louder.
However if you want that acoustic sound for a stage performance; the semi acoustic is the best for this scenario.
If you just want something you can practice with all by your self at home, you can get the acoustic guitar.
It is advisable to get a quality guitar; they are usually much more expensive than the regular less quality type guitars. A quality guitar is fun to play and much more convenient for your fingers. The neck of a quality guitar will not bend easily compared to other less quality guitars.
If you can recognize good wood material when you see one, it wouldn’t be hard for you to know whether a guitar is of good quality or not.
