Acoustic guitars have been a steady constant in music history since their initial invention and these days, more people than ever before have one at their residence. A strong neck and fretboard attached to a hollow wooden body with steel or nylon strings are all that is needed to begin playing this instrument. The starter acoustic guitars found here are ideal for the newcomer to study at their own speed without spending unreasonable amounts of money.

Buy Beginner Acoustic Guitars

The beginner acoustic guitars we supply are each built as a starting line for all fledgling guitarists. Occasionally beginners purchase a professional guitar set-up, later realising that they do not necessarily have many free hours in the week to rehearse. Rehearsing and learning to play takes time and willpower, but do not be disheartened by this as everybody learns at different rates.

Some starter acoustic guitar kits come with a soft case for simple transportation, this allows you to take extra care of your acoustic when travelling. These extras can range from a clip tuner, some picks, spare strings and a strap for playing stood up. Each of the beginner acoustic guitars is designed for home tuition and solo rehearsal as opposed to live staged events etc.

The acoustic guitars supplied can have steel strings or classical nylon-stringed, there is also electro-acoustic guitar choices too, which are acoustics that plugs into guitar amps and PA systems. Those who have chosen the electro-acoustic guitar can connect to a guitar input or amp with an instrument cable for much more volume. Firstly, look for some chord structure charts online, most sites will detail how to play each shape.

Starter Acoustic Guitar

The acoustic guitar is hugely popular so naturally nowadays you can access thousands of free guitar tutorials across multiple video-based websites that will show you how to play the seven major chords, most of which are used in radio-friendly music. Major chords sound positive and joyous and they should be first in line when self tutoring, before long you will be able to combine chords to write your own music. Each chord has a minor equivalent too, G minor or Gm changes a singular note in the shape to alter the emotive tone of the chord, often to match lyrical content.

If your purchase comes with a tuner, clip it just above where your strings are tuned, the wood in the headstock will resonate with your played note. Once the tuner is clipped, begin turning the metal mechanisms to sharpen or flatten the note of each string. The backlit tuner will flicker a flash of green when the correct pitch is achieved, tune strings to E - A - D - G - B - E notes in order.

There are also many different ways to tune a guitar, rock and metal music often warrants the low E string to be tuned to a low D. This improves playability and the simplicity of rock styled riffs, some folk music artists will detune all of their strings to an open D or even the wildly experimental DADGAD tuning. Research additional tunings and see how to approach guitar playing in a totally fresh way, by recommendation E flat tuning always sounds excellent on acoustic guitars.

Acoustic guitar starter kits

Beginner acoustic guitars will help you improve your skills enough to impress your friends and family with your newfound hobby. Electro-acoustic guitars give similar results but of course, you get much louder sound output while connected to a guitar amplifier. The starter kits we stock are popular with customers of all age groups as they use their downtime to expand their skill set and individual musical knowledge.

There are many styles and ways to interpret music, decide what acoustic music you enjoy most stylistically and start learning that first. For example, some guitarists love to play nylon-strung classical guitar and all of the emotive expression that can be achieved with it, some may prefer a more fast-paced, folky guitar sound. There are hundreds of hours worth of new music uploaded to the internet each and every day and it is simple to get lost but by conversing with others you can better decide your direction to follow as you study.

You may want to hire a guitar teacher, but due to necessity, the tuition industry is moving to live video lessons via online webcam calls. The efficiency of tuition is rooted in technique and the dynamic of how your instrument should sound needs to be corrected in real-time as you perform. Meaning it would be equally effective to simply find free guitar lesson videos online instead, it has never been easier for beginners to invest in a starter guitar and learn how to develop their skills.

Maintaining your acoustic guitar

Your acoustic should have the strings changed every few months to keep the quality of your sound output consistent, this is a good opportunity to give your acoustic some TLC. Once you have removed the pegs and unwound the strings, wipe over the neck and fretboard with a soft cloth to remove any trapped dust that may build up under your strings. The same goes for the headstock and the body of the guitar itself, every time you change to new strings you should consider spending a moment to keep your instrument looking good.

Other than this the acoustic guitar is generally low maintenance and can exist capably at home or even mounted to the wall for display when not in use. As is the case for most guitars, some care should be taken to not leave them in direct sunlight for very long. Leaving a guitar either outside or beside a window can sometimes expose instruments to naturally occurring expansions through heat, however, this is mostly a downside in much warmer climates.


Frequently Asked...

Which acoustic guitar should I buy as a beginner?

The acoustic guitar that you purchase as a beginner will depend on what style of music you want to play. For example, you may find that an electro-acoustic model with steel strings would be better, or alternatively, a classical guitar with nylon strings may work better for your preferences.


Are acoustic guitars harder to play?

Electric vs acoustic guitars; a common question for beginner players of any age. Generally, acoustic guitars are harder for beginners due to their higher string tension when compared to electric guitars, making it harder to press down each string with your fingers. You could, however, choose a classical acoustic guitar that has nylon strings, as they are much more comfortable on the fingers and easier to play.


Where do I start with acoustic guitars?

To start learning to play the acoustic guitar, it is recommended that you play some basic chords. After you are confident playing several chords, you can start to learn scales and picking techniques. There are millions of online videos that provide valuable advice to help you on your learning journey.


Are acoustic or classical guitars better for beginners?

Classical guitars have softer strings, so will be overall more comfortable on your fingers, especially as a beginner. That being said, it is easier for notes to resonate on an acoustic guitar, meaning that you don’t need to forcefully pluck each note that you are playing. Overall, it is easier to learn to play the guitar on an acoustic model with steel strings.
