chet w Advice please about types of Guitars (36) RE: Advice please about types of Guitars 03 Mar 98

Will and Dan are absolutely right. The thing I'd like to add, though, is that if there's a particular style or artist that you would like to emulate, as most of us do when we start out (I don't know if you're starting out), then you probably would be satisfied if you get a guitar similar to the ones those people played. If blues is your interest, you're in luck because an awful lot of those old blues recordings were made with guitars that were very inexpensive and still are today, even when you find a pretty old one. But the bottom line, as Dan said, is you pick the guitar that appeals to you. Other than between two persons, there are few more intimate relationships than the one you'll have with an instrument that you really love.

Don't be in a hurry, Chet W.
