As a guitarist, I can say, technically this is kinda true. The keyboard/piano has an insane range, can sound 8-10 notes at once and is incredibly versatile. However, the choice of instrument is just up to preference. You should play the instrument that you enjoy and with focus on the music genre that you like. I'm kind of a rocky and metal-y kinda person, so guitar has the most benefits for me. If OP is interested in guitar, he should just play guitar.

You really going to argue with someone who played guitar for 5 years, keyboard for 8 years and drums for 2 years ?

Bump so you hopefully find something fitting for yourself. :) Also off topic but if someone knows some good (preferably not too expensive) baritone guitars, let me know! ^^

Whats your budget? Are you beginner? Buy anything tbh to try and see if u like it, some squier strat, or epiphone will do for beginner
2021-11-28 13:10
if you're a beginner but serious, i'd recommend getting one with a whammy bar. allows you to play larger variety of sounds. mainly its based on your hand size and how it feels, so recommendations from here can't be too correct. you should get a good amp and if you have the budget, a sound pedal (if you wanna perform in public)
2021-11-28 13:07

bad start though if it has a whammy then it is a floyd rose type maybe you mean tremolo bar (like strat and super strat style guitars) having a floyd rose for a beginner is a no no because they will get tired fast because of string changing and balancing/maintaining the tuning
2021-11-28 13:32

yeah i meant tremolo actually the one i used to have had a whammy but strings didn't require that much attention, used to change every month like regular guitars

I would advise a beginner to do the exact opposite. Do not, for the love of god, get a floyd rose if you're a beginner. Restringing and any maintenance is an asspain.

Fender Squier bro, good quality for small amount of money - I've had a Jazzmaster for years and imo the quality is almost the same as a Mexican Fender at like 1/4 of the price edit: also buying used is not bad option; getting a guitar that has already been broken in when you are new has benefits
2021-11-28 13:13

+1 buying used is a great, you just need to inform yourself what parts you should check for proper function

You should study music theory before playing it

He will give up before he even starts playing guitar then. Theory is important but only when you actually know how to play practically. Learning theory by itself is ridiculous if you ask me.

I’m a Big fan of the Yamaha Pacifica series, they have models ranging from 150€ to 600€ dollars and offer very very good quality for the price. My personal favorite is the 112V

If you are a beginner I'd say an indonesian Ibanez something like this one It's versatile and easy to change the strings.

Don't spend too much money if you are a beginner, you can always buy something of a higher quality later on when you become better and you're sure you want to keep playing. Squiers and maybe some cheaper Ibanez guitars are a great option if you're just starting out.

just dont buy cheap guitar especially if you decide to buy an acoustic or classical one. Around 500 euro should be the price you look for. If that sounds expensive, check how much people spend on phones these days. Also you must like how it looks. Ugly and shitty guitar is probably the biggest thing that prevents you from wanting to continue learning and at some point will become a barrier when you start with more complex stuff. Also dont save money on strings.

ok. 500 unless its orange wood. However I'm not sure if the neck stays in the same place for too many years on these guitars :D Anyway, when so many people buy phones for 1k+ euros every couple of years, couple of additional hundreds of euros on guitar which presumably will be used for many years to come should be a no brainer

i would rephrase the person, who is buying guitar, need to love ALL about it: sound, looks, comfort while playing, etc ofc more guitar costs - more person will appreciate it, but this thing is relative, for someone 200$ is super expensive, for someone 5000$ is ok and from my experience there are decent (not terrible) acoustic guitars for 100$, and with even less price. ps. yes, brainwashing smartphone adds are cancer
2021-11-28 16:54
The most comfortable guitar I played when I was learning was a telecaster. Cheap as dirt sometimes, nice thin neck which I would have loved when I was starting out. Depends how experienced you are. I would also advise going to an actual guitar shop and trying different body shapes and scales.

rock/metal - Gibson LP for other genres - fender strat zoomers brands sucks (like champan, solar, etc)
2021-11-28 16:20
If you are a beginner with a guitar I would suggest starting with the acoustic to get that feel for the sound of it. But if you want electric, there are those bundle deals with guitar, cable, tuner, small amp and shit for like 150-200$. Those guitars are solid, there is nothing wrong with them. Switches and knobs may take less abuse than expensive ones but that's about it, when it comes to playing those are good. If you do not know much it's good. If you get into it you will learn what kind of sound you like, do you want smaller neck, wider, which pickups fit your sound. There is a plethora of pickup choices to overwhelm even the nerdiest of guitar nerds. I ended up with Solton Les Paul, mahogany body, rosewood fretboard. Pickups are humbuckers, Seymour Duncan, sh2 for neck, sh6 for bridge. One is calm jazzy-ish, other is fiery which gives flexibility to play a lot of things. It's not a very expensive but very good sounding guitar and setup. And it's what I like with the sound, can't really afford Gibson so this will do. Buy that starter kit like one of these, whichever one you find locally

Squier by Fender Affinity series ... Both guitars and basses are a safe bet if you don't exactly know what you want. I have a bunch of Affinity instruments and mainly as a bass player, my main work bass is ESP bass for around 1000 bucks. But I still from time to time use my Affinity PJ bass for 250 bucks with specific strings, it's a really fun instrument to play. Because these instruments are mostly well crafted, so nothing bothers you and you get exactly what's on the tin, nothing less nothing more. Great for a beginner.
