Learning to play the guitar can be an extremely rewarding experience. But the process of learning guitar can be a daunting task, especially if you are fledging guitarist just entering the world of music. There are numerous chords, scales, notation and many other things you have to learn and practice. Well the first step of this great musical journey begins with your selection of a guitar. By itself, purchasing an acoustic guitar can be a bit scary too!! The first thing you might want to decide when buying your first guitar is the type of music you will be playing; for example, if you are into country music, it might be best to go with an acoustic guitar. If you like heavy metal or blues then the electric guitar might quench your musical thirst. Well in this article I will be talking about acoustic guitars (electric guitar article will soon follow) and some top picks for beginners. So let’s get started…

           When buying an acoustic guitar it is best to try out as many guitars as possible(check out the types of acoustic guitars here:knoji.com/the-acoustic-guitar/). This way you can get the feel of the guitar, hear how it sounds, and see if it fits you (both physically and musically). The best way to do this go to a music instrument store like Guitar Center. You might also consider asking some sales representatives; they might give you a helpful insight on selecting a guitar. An important thing to remember is never to online-order acoustic guitars. Acoustic guitars are very fragile and can be damaged easily during shipment if not packed well. Below are some good beginner guitars you might want to check out at your local musical instrument store:
