Let’s face it you will not be able to learn to play the guitar like Eddie Van Halen in five easy steps. No, it more complicated than that. First you have to find that first guitar that you can handle. Children will need a smaller guitar than the one an adult will have. If then you are very serious about learning to play a guitar, as they do cost a bit of money, choosing one can be confusing.
There are so many different types of guitars, sizes and different sounds will come out of different guitars. I have made up a short list of how to buy the first guitar, whether it is for you, a child or a friend. I hope this helps in making your decision. Guitar players have their own jargon, it might be best to learn some of these words so you won’t look totally lost.
Where to buy the first guitar is at a reputable guitar store. Go in there and look at the guitars either hanging on the wall or set up in a special area of the store. Someone will help you. If you have no clue as to what to buy, tell the guitar man what you want, if you know. If undecided, tell them, be honest and up front with them. If they know their guitars, which they should, listen carefully to them. If by chance you want to buy a used guitar from a friend, pawn shop or a second hand store, please take someone with you that knows guitars and how to play. Your choices in this type stores will be limited, but you can find a good used guitar if you know what you are wanting. Having someone with you, they will be able to tell you if it is ‘playable’ such as if the ‘nut’ and ‘bridge’ are alright.
The guitar sizes and finishes are vast. There are guitars that are three quarter size. It has a smaller body so this one would be great for a child from the ages of eight to twelve. The small guitar will fit those little hands and fingers. There is the folk or parlor size that is an adult size. This one is a bit smaller than a regular sized guitar. This type of guitar is great for teenagers and many women like it because it seems to fit their hands. The last one the full size dreadnought is used by adults and it will fit most adult hands and fingers. The finishes on a guitar is not really important at this time. You must like the sound and if it is fairly easy to play is the important thing right now.
Buy the guitar you want whether it is electric or acoustic. That’s up to you. Don’t pay too much for the first guitar, you can always buy another one, once you have mastered guitar playing. Enjoy your guitar.
Guitar Loop Pedal

Guitar loop pedals are a great tool that allows you to capture your creative genius immediately. With a guitar loop pedal you can record rhythm tracks and instantly add lead to them.
Guitar loop pedals also have the benefit of storing your favorite riffs and then playing them back to you by slowing them down. This gives you the benefit of mastering your favorite, riffs, licks and songs with more ease.In addition, some looping pedals have a mic input to allow to record everything from vocals, televisions and radios. This will give you the ability to capture sounds externally like Trent Reznor.
My favorite benefit of guitar Joyo pedals review is that they are like insurance for creative ideas. You can record a musically idea immediately without the chance of accidentally forgetting it an hour later.
