The Stressless Way To Choose Your First Guitar

Choosing your first guitar can be a stressful experience because there are so many options and you have a limited budget. This article will show you how to remove some stress from the process.

The trick is to realize that your choice is really not that important. Let me tell you why.

When you start learning the guitar your playing future will take one of two possible paths: either you'll keep playing and improving, or you'll give up.

If you carry on playing then the chances are that you'll want to change your first guitar after a year or two. At the outset you’re very unlikely to know how to pick your dream guitar before even beginning to play.

If on the other hand you give up, then you'll just sell your guitar. Or you’ll put it away in the attic or garage and forget it.

From this perspective I’m sure you’ll agree that the choice of your first guitar is not an eternal decision. Keep this in mind and you’ll be able to face the guitar shop feeling much more relaxed. You can, and most probably will, change your mind later.

Check back for future posts in this series where I’ll offer you more tips on choosing your guitar.
