- You should begin with an acoustic guitar since it is challenging to play and will make your hands and fingers stronger a lot faster.
- You should begin with an electric guitar since it is less challenging to play.

Decide on the kind of guitar you are passionate about playing.
As a player just starting out, your experience with your first guitar is critical to your long-term successes. Deciding on the right guitar means choosing which kind of guitar you personally find thrilling and will be the most driven to play. What type of music are you going to like to play? What type of guitar grabs your attention? Which type can you see yourself playing? That is going to be the one you would most like to practice and play. When you just want to play guitar but aren’t sure what kind to decide on then establish a budget and work within those limits.
Work inside the limits your budget.
In a perfect world, your decision between an electric or acoustic guitar should be established solely by a want for one over the other. Regardless, the decision might realistically be restricted by your budget. Beginning with an electric guitar is usually more costly than acoustic guitars because of the requirement for an amplifier, guitar cord, and other accessories.
The easiest guitar to play is the kind you are most curious in learning.
Frequently, individuals want to find out what kind of guitar is easiest to play. There are physical disparities between electric and acoustic guitars that need to be taken into consideration. Nevertheless, most people believe the type of guitar you “want” to play will be the one easiest to learn on, as you’ll be more likely to develop good practice habits early on.
Electric guitars are physically slightly more easily played.
Electric guitars are actually slightly easier to play, presuming they are correctly adjusted, since their body is smaller, they have a thinner neck, and use thinner gauged strings. The guitar pickups and amp do the work of projecting sound, so a more delicate touch, in addition to lighter strings makes it easier to play. Electric guitars are required to be plugged into an amp, that needs to be turned on prior to playing. For many, the extra time it takes to plug into an amp and turn it on might be enough to hinder them from playing as frequently or having an impulsive moment to pick it up and just start playing.
Acoustic guitars come with heavier gauge strings in which requires somewhat firmer plucking and fingering.
The wooden top of an acoustic guitar needs vibrate to project the sound. This needs heavier gauge strings along with somewhat firmer plucking and fingering. The body of the acoustic guitar is a lot larger than that of an electric guitar, and typically has a thicker neck to maintain the tension of the heavier strings. Nevertheless, many individuals find the instant accessibility of an acoustic guitar leaning on a stand enticing, making them more inclined to pick it up and play more frequently.
Don’t forget, only pick a guitar you know has been fully inspected and adjusted for easier playing.
Be sure to get the facts. Inquire about what has been done to make the guitar easier to play. A lot of important issues rest on the quality and playability of the guitar. Both the electric guitar and the acoustic guitar will play relatively easy as long as they are correctly adjusted, and the size is appropriate for the player.

GUITAR LESSONS REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
Ben is an amazing music instructor. I am a music producer and I have taken piano lessons from him for over 5 years. Highly recommended as he is very patient and easy to work with.
"I think it was a great first lesson for my 8 year old. He has been taking private lessons for the past one year but none of the instructors taught him the right technique to hold the pick, hold the guitar and placement of right and left hand. The instructor (Benjamin) seemed knowledgeable and had the right approach to teach a child. Definitely plan to continue taking these lessons and definitely recommend to anyone who is interested."
"Ben is an amazing piano teacher. He is energetic, outgoing and very patient. My daughter has really enjoyed her lessons over the last few months. He has kept my daughter excited about learning by his upbeat personality, but has also made sure she focused on the essentials of piano playing. Ben is very knowledgeable and as a parent, it is very comforting to deal with such a professional."
"With Ben's encouraging, patient and enthusiastic style of teaching I now know that I can learn to play guitar. As an older student I wasn't sure if I should endeavor such a challenge. Before I realized, I was learning, playing and understanding music."
"My son has only had his first lesson so far but the instructor was very good with him. He was so interested after the lesson that he continued to practice for another 20 min after the lesson. He is now very excited to learn more. Thank you!"
"Ben is a good guitar teacher. I have learned many things from him. He lets you take your time when you are trying to learn something and he will never rush you. I would suggest having Ben as your guitar teacher."
"I had my first lesson and am very excited and inspired by Benjamins enthusiasm and teaching style. He makes it a lot of fun! I am hoping his style will inspirer my daughter to take lessons."
"Ben was prompt and very friendly. The boys enjoyed the lessons and will continue on with Ben. He was great at being flexible to fit us into his schedule when it worked for us."
"Ben is very patient and knowledgeable. My son was very happy about learning to play a song after his 1st lesson. He is eager to practice and seems to really enjoy it."
"Benjamin was patient, friendly, and professional. He worked well with my kids and we are looking forward to next weeks session."
"Ben has so much passion and an amazing gift for sharing it with young ones -- my 6 year old son LOVED his first lesson!!!"
"Ben is an excellent and very supportive instructor."
"Ben is a great teacher. He keeps lessons interesting and fun!"
"Ben makes lessons fun and I also learn a lot!"
"Ben has been teaching guitar to my son for the past few months and I must say that, it has been great so far. Ben teaches various techniques which I see no other previous guitar instructor has stressed upon earlier and they are must for guitarist in order to develop good habits from the start. He makes sure in every class that my son is playing the guitar with correct form and technique. He's good with kids and makes sure they are comfortable and understanding the instructions. I always tell my son to learn as much as possible from Ben, he's a good teacher and willing to share his knowledge. Recently started piano classes as well for my daughter and so far going great. She's liking them. Definitely recommend if any one wants to learn music from Ben. At least give him a try."
"I had been meaning to get piano lessons for my oldest for a while and when I found Ben's ad on Yelp I sent him a message. He responded quickly and was able to fit us in at a time which worked perfectly for the both of us. He is very patient with my daughter and she has shown so much improvement over such a short amount of time. I can't believe how quickly she is picking things up and enjoying playing. She constantly makes up new songs throughout the day, adding to them and seems genuinely interested in continuing. He even likes to help her create new music to keep her interested. A much better experience than I had when I was younger. I am so glad we found Ben."
