At first sight, the guitar would be on the list of instruments rather easy to learn for a beginner. It's no coincidence that for so many decades, guitar players have been swarming among us. Just look around you, how many musicians do you know and how many play the guitar? Strumming your first chords seems to be within everyone's reach, but the truth is that there are no easy instruments. Even if it is true that starting the guitar is much easier than if you had chosen the violin, the tuba or even the harp, you still have to work on your instrument. In any case, to learn an instrument, you need to follow some principles applicable to almost all instruments. To learn more, read on.
Choose an instrument adapted to your musical style. If for example you want to play rock or even metal, choose either an electric guitar or an electro-acoustic guitar. For flamenco, choose a classical guitar, for pop a folk guitar. The folk guitar is often chosen by beginners who want to play music they’ve probably grown up hearing, such as soft rock, pop, folk and other wonderful musical styles. Versatile, it is also very easy to handle and allows you to adapt to it quickly.
Your level of playing will also be a determining factor in the choice of your instrument. Even if you are drooling over an expensive guitar, there is no need to spend too much money on it right now. Don't forget that you must first learn and master your instrument. It happens that some people make a mistake and abandon their instrument to choose another one. Of course, you can always sell it or donate it to a music school, but if you want to learn how to play, choose a guitar at a reasonable price but of good quality.
Any instrument must be adapted to your physiology. If you are tall or short, the choice of your guitar may be different. It is very important for your learning to have an instrument that fits you.
In addition to your physicality, your age will also be a determining factor. For a child, there is no need to buy a guitar for an adult. Of course, if your child is very tall for his age, you must adapt to his size. Be aware that a child will not have the same approach to his instrument as an adult. But always opt for quality.
In short, you have understood that even the guitar, which is one of the so-called easy instruments, requires a dedicated musician to practice in order to be able to master his instrument as time goes by. Because no instrument (even the recorder, the harmonica or the triangle) can be played without a minimum of investment on your part.
Before leaving you ponder this important point: don't forget the aspect of enjoying yourself.. To learn an instrument, whether it is considered easy or complicated, there is nothing more pleasing than having fun.
