Correct posture and right playing techniques are very important for the stringed instruments like guitar too. However, it is also necessary to determine what we wish to achieve as guitarists. For a singer-songwriter, he or she simply uses the guitar as a tool for composition, putting technique fairly low down the list of priorities.
But for somebody who desires to play music like that of Dream Theater, technique matters greatly.
Acoustic vs Electric guitar
A common question that most beginner guitar players ask is, “Should I begin with acoustic guitar or electric?” and the answers they get vary. Most beginners can start with an acoustic guitar instead of an electric guitar. Despite the fact that acoustic guitars may be a bit tougher to play, they are easier and simpler to grasp. They need no physical science, wires, dials or knobs. They only need a tone that sounds smart in virtually any type of music and has a dateless charm.
Nylon-String guitar (Classical)
There is a (somewhat flawed) theory that beginners ought to learn this instrument first. This theory relies on the presumption that new players should be protected from the discomfort of painful fingertips and the plastic strings of this instrument are easier to figure out than with steel. However, it can be tough to master the classical guitar. At the hands of a beginner, the nylon string guitar can end up sounding like a toy instead of an actual instrument. Whereas steel strings are a lot more forgiving and can reward even the most basic of beginners with sweet sounds.
Nylon-string guitars are, side-by-side, more delicate than steel string guitars and have fewer choices commercially offered because of its relatively weaker quality.
Additionally, it is generally used for a narrower variety of repertoire revolving around classical, Spanish and Latin stringed instrument designs. This may be a good selection if your interest is primarily in those designs, otherwise you must opt for a steel-string guitar.
Electric guitars are accustomed to play for specific styles, particularly blues, funk, rock and metal. These styles use specialized guitar techniques and effects.
When in doubt, follow your passion. Go for whichever stringed instrument you are most interested in. If you stay indifferent when reading this it is most likely best to start out with an acoustic guitar. Acoustic stringed instruments are the most common instrument for beginner guitar players to use.
If you are interested in learning the guitar, or are otherwise considering the practice of guitar notes to be too tough, think about obtaining an electrical guitar instead.
