Buying your first guitar can be an intimidating experience. Follow these guidelines for a low-stress and successful buying experience.

 Buying your first guitar can be an overwhelming and daunting experience. There are hundreds of styles and variations to choose from, and you can seemingly pay as little or as much as you want. You may have questions about what kind of guitar to buy and how to choose. Following these guidelines will help make the buying process a low-stress, enjoyable, and ultimately successful endeavor.

Steel strings or nylon?

The difference between steel string guitars and nylon string guitars is simple; guitars with nylon strings are classical guitars. If you enjoy classical or jazz music and are interested in learning how to play detailed melodies using a fingerpicking style, a classical guitar might be the perfect choice.

The fretboard of a classical guitar is wider than that of a steel string. This means that the strings are a little farther apart, so it is great for learning how to position your hand and fret the strings properly. Classical guitars produce rich and beautiful tones with each pluck, and they can be very rewarding and enjoyable to play. The body of the guitar is also smaller than a steel string, and a slightly altered, yet comfortable posture is required to play the guitar.

If you are planning on playing with a pick you should purchase a steel string guitar. Steel strings are used in most popular styles of music including: bluegrass, blues, rock, folk, country and indie.
