There is a bewildering choice of guitars available, and a beginner is hard pressed to know where to start - he / she is often at the mercy of a shop assistant who may be desperate to shift the dismal guitar that's been sitting in the corner for months. This opinion will give the reader some advice about where to start when choosing an acoustic steel-strung guitar, and then strongly recommend the Simon & Patrick SP6. Why acoustic? I believe a steel-strung acoustic guitar is an excellent guitar to learn on. It is appropriate for a wide range of styles, is portable, requires little partnering equipment (unlike an electric) and is ideal for solo or ... Read the complete review

My review of Gibson Acoustic Guitars. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Introduction ~~~~~~~~ Originally founded by Orville Gibson in the late 19th century; the Gibson brand of musical instruments quickly gained a great reputation for making hi quality instruments. Orville (who's dress sense has to be seen to be believed - (I've seen some old photos of him in clothes that would make a 1970's extra on Starsky and Hutch feel embarrassed -lol!) originally started out building mandolins but quickly moved on to make acoustic guitars too. Orville can certainly take credit for making the first arch-top acoustic guitars, and he ... Read the complete review

I am currently around the beginner-plus level of playing guitar. I know a fair amount of the major chord shapes and can tune by ear (although this is probably due more to my musical theory training than any particular prowess on guitar). I may not be equipped yet to write an op on learning how to play guitar, but I’m trying to provide a different perspective- that of a novice player. I decided to take a different approach than most of the other reviews in this section, by concentrating on how to choose a guitar and my thoughts on learning to play. Why guitar? Guitar is, apparently, the most popular instrument to learn. First of all, they look ... Read the complete review

I started playing the guitar almost 4 years ago in school. The night before my first lesson, I took a trip into the city centre, and bought a Genta acoustic. I have not regretted my decision. Steel-stringed and full sized, it was the perfect way to begin learning this instrument. Being a steel stringed guitar, it's bound to hurt the hands of a first-timer, and it did. However, this is a good thing. Eventually, you will find yourself with finger tips that are tough as nails. Playing the guitar will no longer feel like torture, but a joy to behold. Electric guitars have lighter strings, making them easier to play, but you should wait a year or ... Read the complete review

From the time that I was conceived, music has been a large part of my life. My Mom played her classical guitar (a Fender that is now twenty-two, twenty-three years old and still sounds absolutely beautiful), or she would put in a cassette to listen to. I don't know whether she contributed to it or not, but I am madly in love with music. And so, it seemed only natural that I learn how to play the guitar. My Mom bought my first guitar when I was eight. It was an off-brand student guitar - perfectly sized for small bodies and tiny fingers. That guitar has long since broken down, and no longer sounds like anything even remotely resembling a guitar, but playing ... Read the complete review
