Acoustic guitars are good for learning as they reqiure greater strength in your fingers. I started playing guitar about 10 years ago. Now i have some pretty decent guitars (fender telecaster american made and a nice yamaha electro acoustic and a 7 string ibanez :P) Also if you are buying an acoustic try and buy one with a cutaway so you can acces some of the higher frets (that used to realy piss me off when i couldnt reach the 19th fret on my old acoustic)

Alternativley you could buy a cheap electric like a squire along with a cheap acoustic! Though with guitar you get what you pay for although squiers sound very good for their price.

On the topic of effects i totaly abuse my delay pedal and my chorus pedal

I'm about to start playing guitar, but i cant choose between Electric guitars and Acoustic guitars... Which do u recommend and why?


P.S. Please dont answer with a "Choose whatever you want to play" or anything along those lines"








i would say acoustic! basically (this is what ive been told) if you start off playing the acoustic u will be able to play the electric without any problems. OR even bass. i started off playing the bass and i love it. although it was a huge mistake starting off with a bass as the guitar itself cost me an arm and a leg and plugging it in all the time when i wanted to 'doodle' around was a pain in the arse.

i have an acoustic guitar but it can be plugged in the amplifier and can be electric, but sounds like shit when u have distortion... haha acoustic is good but if u really wanna be good and perform, ill recomend u to get electric... but its really expensive so gl oh btw, acoustic cant play all those intermidiate songs like canon rock, teaars in heaven and sht... it can but it sounds horrible... the only thing u can practice is basic tabs without distortion and strum

yep, calluse up your fingers with an acoustic and start playing classical. then when you transition to electric later, you'll find playing it is much easier.
