There was a time when the ability to play a musical instrument was considered an essential part of our education. But since the 2000s, electronic diversions like music-playback machines and video games have taken over this wonderful ability. Many times, we still think of learning a musical instrument but sadly most often they stay hidden.
But it’s never late to start anything, so if you had planned in the past or if you are planning then implement that plan today. Guitar Confidence is providing online guitar lessons in these testing times.

If you are a total beginner, I suggest learning on an acoustic guitar. That’s because if you can play on a steel-string acoustic guitar, you’ll be able to play any guitar without problems, which won’t be true for an electric guitar. If you learn on an electric guitar, you may or may not be able to play an acoustic guitar comfortably. If you like it quiet and soft then you will love the naturally soothing, calmer tone of the acoustic over the distorted, amplified electric guitar. And then you would not need to buy any cables, or an amplifier to start playing, so it saves your pocket.
Most importantly at the very beginning of your guitar journey, your only aim should be to learn the basic guitar techniques, that you will be building on later, although you’ll be playing the acoustic or electric guitar.
Acoustic guitars have their own way of mesmerizing the crowd. The sound this guitar produces is bright, brassy, deep, and forceful which gives sheer pleasure to everyone’s ear. The guitar’s body is made of wood and the sound is produced from the vibration of the strings while the hollow wooden body acts as an echo chamber. These guitars are available in two variants, one is the steel-string and the other is classical. The steel-strings guitars produce a metallic sound that is a constituent of several trendy music styles while the classical guitars have a wide neck and utilize nylon strings. But know that steel-string guitar will be louder than the classical guitar. Whether steel-string or classical, playing acoustic guitars will strengthen your fingers as you press down on the strings to make chord shapes. So, it is one of the best guitars to start your guitar learning process. Music style acoustic guitar supports are folk, country, ragtime, blues, and pop.
