Topic: BUY AN ELECTRIC GUITAR FOR BEGINNER

Hello, I've been playing acoustic guitar for over a year now and I really love it. So I decided to buy an electric guitar right now. I want to buy online so there will be no advice in the shop. So I need to know: Is there anything important that I have to pay attention when I am a beginner? And can you recommend me a good electric guitar for beginners? Thanks for your help! 

Re: BUY AN ELECTRIC GUITAR FOR BEGINNER

Go to a reputable music store. Try as many guitars as possible cheap and expensive, you have no obligation to buy and you'll have a good idea as to what you want and suits you best and they can advise you so ask questions. An electric will be easier to play than an acoustic.     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Re: BUY AN ELECTRIC GUITAR FOR BEGINNER

I dont have a electric guitar but my acoustic has a pickup in it . Recently I had been given the temporary use of an amplifier and  few other gadgets I found the sound that was created with these devices was a lot fun to dabble with.     That might be an avenue worth investigating when you visit a music store.

Re: BUY AN ELECTRIC GUITAR FOR BEGINNER

check it out bud. You can buy any guitar cheap or expensive and your skill level will be  your own. What these dudes mean is that if you can get to a  guitar store that would be awesome, because you can  feel the guitar weigh the guitar taste the guitar lick the guitar if you wish, But if you want to go the online route well then your gonna have to be a gambling man and see if you get what you wish for. And I understand maybe you don't have a guitar store nearby. well then .......that's where you google and go through lots of reviews, always trust the reviews, not always but sometimes always. Hope that helped. https://armadillo.sirv.com/assets/web/f … ling=4:2:0   incase your interested

I apologize junior memeber cenela. Sometimes i think I'm funny. I still have my first electric guitar hanging in my pool room. It was a cheap Ibanez Gio. I bought a cheap amp from the pawn shop. I swear i could not get that guitar to sound good at all. When i got it half way decent, i had the most fun i've ever had after just playing my acoustic. The loudness and the extremety of hearing the chord or note your playing is so different than strumming and hearing the acoustic. So much fun playing punk music, (nofx, rancid, greenday) playing and learning awesome classics from acdc like hells bells, if you want blood. Trying I repeat trying to follow and play david gilmours awesome little licks. Then after i had some time practicing, i stumbled upon the world of the pedals. WOW!!! You'll learn young padawan. Just have fun, always have fun and push yourself to the next level. I have pics of my guitar I sold my amp and just have my one zoom505 pedal. I don't think we can post pics here. I only play my acoustics now. FUN always play for fun
