If you’re on a quest to learn how to play guitar, congratulations!  It’s an extremely rewarding instrument to play.  It’s also extremely frustrating in turns, and periods of great gains seem to be punctuated by long periods of mediocrity as you learn.  Rest assured that this is a natural part of the process of learning how to play guitar.

If you’re teaching yourself to play guitar, it’s important that you do a couple of things right.  First, while it’s easy to find cheap electric guitars, you need to make sure you find a reasonable quality instrument.  You’re going to be spending a lot of time with your new guitar hanging around your neck, so it should feel comfortable.  It’s also an equal participant in your musical experience, so it’s key that your new guitar not hamper your progress.  It’s a frustrating enough evolution without your guitar struggling with you at each step of the way.

With that in mind, here are some things to be on the lookout for as you start your guitar search.

  • The golden rule of guitar buying is this:  never buy an instrument you haven’t played.  Even if you buy a reputable brand and a particular guitar style that you’ve played before, you should play the exact instrument you’re going to buy.  Every guitar is unique, and you need to become familiar with any idiosyncrasies.
  • Be sure to play every string at every fret location in order to find out if your potential guitar has any spots that don’t sound good.  Sometimes guitars have “dead spots” that don’t produce a clean note.
  • While there are tons of cool guitar straps available, your most important consideration should be comfort.  You won’t enjoy your practice sessions much if your guitar strap keeps digging into your neck.

These tips should keep you out of trouble.
