How To Choose A Beginner Guitar
So you’ve decided to start learning guitar – that’s awesome! The next step is to get a guitar you can start practicing with, which leads to an important question – what type of guitar do you want?
At Yousician, we recommend you to choose a guitar that genuinely appeals to you, whether it’s an acoustic (which does not need to be plugged in to an amp) or an electric (which would need an amp for the sound to be louder). Many people recommend beginners to start on acoustic guitars to build hand strength. However, we have found that the best results come from playing a guitar you enjoy so that you are motivated to play and practice.
Learning guitar is about building technique and dexterity, so the skills you learn on one guitar can transfer nicely to another guitar. When you learn guitar on Yousician, remember that you can use any guitar type and the app can still listen to you play and provide feedback on notes and timing. There are popular songs of all genres in the app that you can practice to.
