Different Guitars And Their Sounds

There are many types of guitars you can purchase and each has a different look, sound and feel. When buying a new guitar, it is important you consider all these factors before choosing just one. There are also a lot of accessories for guitars that can change their sound and look.

If you are a beginner, you may not know very much about the different types of guitars available and deciding which is the best type for you to try out first can help you decide exactly which guitar to choose. 

Different guitars are used in different genres of music, as well, so if you want to play a specific type of music you may need to consider the type of guitar you buy to ensure you get the sound you're looking for. 

Classical nylon string acoustic guitars are used for pop, classical, jazz and folk music and give a soft, mellow sound. The nylon strings produce a less harsh sound than metal-stringed guitars.

These are the perfect choice for beginners as they tend to be easier to learn to play than others. The strings can be gentler on your fingers and help you get to grips with playing without hurting your hands to begin with. 

Steel-stringed acoustic guitars give a brighter, more clean sound and are great for those wanting to move on from nylon-string acoustic guitars. Steel-stringed acoustic guitars are also a great way to practice and build your finger strength before moving to electric guitars. 

Electric guitars come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are the go-to for a huge range of music types such as rock, metal, punk and many more. Electric guitars can be used with pedals and can create totally different sounds depending on how they are mixed.

This makes them a solid choice for those wanting to play a wide range of music and who want flexibility and variety without having to buy multiple instruments. The fact they come in so many styles means there will definitely be something out there to fit your tastes as well.
