  2. One of the most important first decisions (after deciding that you want to start playing guitar) is which type of music you want to play. Usually, people want to start playing the music they listen to. And while that is a good initial thought, each type of music is filled with sub-genre's and some are extremely hard to begin with. For example, I love jazz music, but even after 30 years of playing, I still find it difficult to really play jazz the way I want to. (If jazz is your passion, and jazz guitar is what you want to learn to play, then I strongly suggest getting a personal instructor.)beginner guitar today

  3. The strings may be set so high above the fret board that you just about have to stand on them to play it. Obviously this isn't what we want.
