Frequently Asked Questions about Acoustic Guitars For Beginners

Question: What acoustic guitar should a beginner buy?
There’s a few things to take into consideration when buying your first acoustic guitar. Firstly, it's important that a starter acoustic guitar is comfortable. Some classic acoustic body sizes such as the dreadnought are really quite big and, unless you are tall, aren’t that forgiving to sit down with. The body size also relates to the style of playing. The bigger the guitar, the more suited it is to strumming with a pick. The smaller the guitar, the more suited it is to fingerpicking. If you’d like to learn both, something in the middle - like a Grand Auditorium - would be best. In terms of spec, the big thing to look for is whether a guitar is made from solid wood or laminate wood. Solid wood is much more resonant and improves beautifully with age.
Question: Are acoustic electric guitars good for beginners?
The electronics in modern acoustic guitars are so unobtrusive that it doesn’t really matter what kind of acoustic guitar that you learn on. One of the benefits of learning on an electro-acoustic guitar is that they often have a built-in tuner which can make them a helpful guitar for beginners.
Question: What are the best acoustic guitar strings for beginners?
The standard acoustic guitar strings are .012-.053”. The guitar will sound best if you can persevere with these. Many beginners find them a bit hard going in which case .011-.052” will be much easier.
Question: How much does a decent beginner acoustic guitar cost?
Nowadays, even the cheapest beginner's acoustic guitars deliver excellent playability and quality. Our cheapest beginner's acoustic guitars start at £79.
Question: Can you self teach acoustic guitar?
Yes, absolutely. You may still want to get a few lessons at some point to make sure you are getting to grips with it, or even gather some inspiration through different exercises or songs.
