So why have we decided to start teaching on an acoustic guitar?
To be fair, you can learn on either an acoustic or an electric guitar, but here are some of the reasons we believe you should start your journey on the former… assuming, of course, you actually have one!
You will have more fun on an electric later on when you have learnt the basics
You don’t need loads of extra gear, like amps
Starting with an electric may start to disillusion you as you will want to play like your guitar hero from the start
It is more mobile
You need to learn basics and not be discouraged
An acoustic guitar makes you work harder. It may feel like running with weights, but it will feel great when you remove those weights and pick up your first electric
It will give you added strength
Acoustics sound great
You can still play loads of styles.
Not as easily distracted by trying to perfect the sound you want.
