90% of new guitar players abandon playing within 1 year. Are you starting off on the wrong instrument?
Many years ago, I found myself drawn to the sound of the electric guitar, but as time passed, I was drawn to the warm, resonant tones of the acoustic guitar. For decades, I almost exclusively played acoustic guitar, until recently when the allure of electric guitar reignited my interest.
With this newfound exploration, I have fresh insights and perspectives on where to begin your guitar journey. And guess what? I’m here to share this treasure trove of knowledge with you. So, if you’re just starting out, or you’re an old hand considering a new path, you’ve come to the right place.
In this video, I delve into the 10 key differences between acoustic and electric guitars, covering everything from body styles to string gauges. It’s not just about which one is better—it’s about understanding the unique qualities of each and how they can influence your playing and musical growth.
If you don’t have time to watch the whole video, I strongly recommend you go down the acoustic path. The acoustic guitar is not just more portable and less gear-intensive, but it also serves as an excellent foundation to build your strength and dexterity due to its string gauge and length. This makes transitioning to electric guitar easier in the long run!
