Thread: Acoustic Guitar Learning ...

  1. #1

    Question Acoustic Guitar Learning ...

    Is it to learn acoustic guitar? I've tried to pick up bass long long ago, so I have a very crude understanding of how a guitar works.

    Lately, I've been getting all these great idea's of songs in my head (and I have a basic mastery of reading/writing music) but I can't exactly put it into song without the proper tools. So I've decided to teach myself to play acoustic guitar,

    so, those of you guitar junkies/veterans any tips/pointers? Also, if anyone has any suggestions as to the brand of acoustic to pick up that'd be more than welcome.

    Please bear in mind that I don't work because I'm just like that and I don't have all that much money (part of the reason why I'm teaching myself after all) but I don't care about that stuff, I just want to make music.

    Suggestions, points, advice, anything?

    Since you have to stay cheap, see if you can find A & L or if you can afford a little more, a Cort or Crafter. Those are pretty likely to be playable - maybe a Jasmine.
    As for the rest: practice. Your hands will adjust. If you can read a ukulele chord chart, you can read a guitar chord chart - just be advised, some of the shapes are about the same, but for different chords (for instance, a uke G is a guitar D)

    Obvious question, but why not write on the uke? I do most of my work on uke first and then adapt it to guitar. In my opinon it's a great songwriting tool.
