I wish i could play an instrument
In 6 months you can become a decent player if you really put in the work. It's all about how motivated you are. I've known people who became really good players in 2 years after picking up a new instrument. Just go for it if you feel like. I'm an acoustic player so can't say about which guitar to get.
if youre gonna learn guitar, u should try getting into or making a band in ur area
playing alone is p pointless
in my opinion, without a teacher you wont get very far. Mostly because you wont notice the mistakes you are going to make.
If you want to play in a band or whatever then a teacher is necessary
start with an acoustic, its cheaper and easier to learn
when you have the basics down (1 year) u can try the electric
I would'nt start with an accoustic guitar. its so much easier to play on the smaller elctric guitar fret. so if you're a total beginner, i suggest a electric guitar. i recommend a Squire vintage. Very nice quality for that price. For the Amp i recommend a BOSS Katana mini. also cheap and great sound quality for the size.
If you want to play music that requires you to have an electric guitar, then buy an electric guitar. Simple as that. It is not easier to start on an acoustic, its total bullshit. I would recommend you look at used market to find your first instrument. You can buy cheaper and better. It would be great if you had a friend who knows something about guitars, and can give you some advice on which guitar to buy. I would recommend you to pick up a used guitar for something around 500 dollars. You can have a great instrument for this amount of money. New 500 dollars guitar is going to be worse in most cases. And last but not least i would not recommend getting a guitar with a floyd rose bridge as your first instrument. They are harder to get a hang of.
I started playing last year on a classical guitar, but I'm going to switch to an electric as soon as I can. I haven't really learned to play properly, I'm just trying to learn to play songs that I like, but it's been really fun and I suggest you pick up playing it. What genres are you looking to play?
You should definitely go for it. It could be pretty frustrating at the start because you won't be able to play anything that sounds good so it's all about motivation, the guitar is a hard instrument but you don't have to get a teacher. for the guitar, a decent Squier and a good amp will do.
post a song you like with that instrument
You won't achieve much in 6 month by yourself if you're willing to play some complicated solos etc.
Also buy PRS guitar it's pretty cheap and very solid for your first ever guitar.
I'm planning to get an electric too, but there's a limited variety of left-handed guitars in Lithuania
Enough to learn some intros and songs with max 3 chords.
I learn on acoustic. When u play then eguitar it feels like a toy cuz it is so easy.
Also at acoustic you break down the songs to the elements that helps as well to learn it far deeper as with eguitar.
Cuz you can't play most of the time 1:1 with eguitar and acoustic.
self taught guitarist here... few tips that helped me a lot
- if you don't know yet, learn how to read cifras (musical figures??), forget about tablature for now
- find someone to play with you, no matter their skill, as long as it's a little better than yours right now - one of the most important things on the early stages of learning this is to understand HOW and WHEN you can 'improvise' and this will let you skip tha hard parts at first without losing the flow of the music you're playing. This is also how you 'understand' how different riffs complete eachother in a song.
- the most important part at first should be transitioning between notes - you need to train your 'muscle memory' for that, otherwise you will memorize how to play the song but you'll be frustrated as fuck because you cannot put it all togheter.
- for your instruments, i'd suggest a used Squire at first - very flexible stylewise. I also would by a Headphone at first, so you can practice not making a hell of a noise.
it's very tangible to learn the basics and a few songs in 6 months
Stratocaster, you can alot with youtube teachers, you have to be in love with guitars sound and looking ,and forget bout fame and stars.
Good teachers : justin guitar, paul davids, signals music studio.
Best guitarist on youtube : tom buckovak.
Best guitarist in world : govan guthrie
Results may vary. I bought one 2 years ago and I can't play at all. I only remember buying it when I vacuum behind the couch.
Dont buy a fucking acoustic for a first guitar. People start with acoustics because their parents are too cheap to get them a electric guitar + amp and accessories.
Get a guitar that you like looking at, fits in your hands and motivates you to play. It's the only thing that keeps you playing in the hard times on learning, when you can just turn up the gain, pick the guitar that fits your style and ROCK!
Acoustic guitars can be really demotivating because they need care to keep their set up. When you have winter and summer, the wood in the guitar moves alot because of humidity. This affects the playability if you dont maintain a somewhat stable 45% humidity in the guitars body.
bass >>>> guitar tho guitar overrated
Hey man, PM me if you’re serious. I can get you started :)
Just focus on fundamentals, learn the first chords and easy songs. If you find yourself getting overly frustrated, take step back. You are playing music, so have fun with it. Ideally, you'll be playing for years to come, so there's no need to rush. Search for Justin Guitar and Synyster Gates School. When you feel more confortable, look for"Absolute Fretboard Mastery" on youtube.
you should really consider paying for guitar lessons, it helps A LOT starting off. the teacher will guide you and shit but it really will come down to the time and effort you put into practicing. eventually, playing guitar will become very fun and almost addicting if you notice you are improving at a fast rate.
its boring as fuck to learn guitar, and it's not really something that will be useful unless you put a ton of work into it.
I would say, pick a better hobby
Tbh it all depends on how much work you put in it
depends how much time, if its 20 minutes then probably decent, if its 5 hour then probably pretty good :D
i'm almost at the same situation, i've been playing electric guitar for over 3 years and now i am trying to learn piano, and then i realized it is so hard to learn by yourself.
You have every information you need on the internet but you dont know how to start, its really difficult.
The guitar you would buy really depends in the sound that you like, if you like heavier sounds you should probably grab guitars with double pickups, they give a heavier sounding to the guitar, there is a lot of models that normally have double pickups, like SG's, Les Paul's, Flying V's, Super Strats.
And if you want a cleaner sound there are guitars like Telecasters, Stratocasters, Off sets.
The guitar amp is really up to you, if want a lot of options to mix with you could buy a bigger one, there's a lot of famous brands out there like Marshall, Orange, Fender, Blackstar, BOSS that you should check it out.
