Good Solid advice on purchasing a classical guitar

I have been playing guitar for many many years and it is one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. I am not a performer, I just do it for my own personal satisfaction and occasionally I will play for friends and family. Buying a guitar (I now have three) was one of the best decisions I ever made. The budget is long forgotton and the money I spent is still with me in the form of the music I play and the satisfaction I get.

 

If you are planning on heading off to the local guitar shop to purchase a classical guitar here is some practical advice for you. Advice on purchasing a classical guitar

You are going to be so happy that you bought a guitar and learned how to play. There is a richness that comes to you as you learn to play an instrument. And the guitar has been my constant companion through many interesting years.

The guitar will be your companion too

So maybe you are thinking about the expense. Don't! Life passes by so fast. You need to grab some of the rich textures in life and music is one of them.

What does music bring to your life? When you hear an old song on the radio, one that you used to love, doesn't it take you back to that time? This is the power of music. And the ability to play music amplifies the feeling, the appreciation and the reward.

Classical Guitar will add a level of creativity to you that you never experienced before. The opportunities are endless.

right handed classical guitar playing

I'm left-handed. Very dominantly left-handed. And I learned how to play right-handed. I only play as a righty and I learned this way because the strings on my first guitar were arranged for right handed play and the book I had was for right handed play.

So whether you are a righty or a lefty or even if you are a double lefty like me you will learn how to play and you will get pretty good!

If you still aren't inspired then you should watch this concert. The beauty of it will well tears in your eyes.

If you are a beginner and this is your first guitar you are faced with the dilemma of "What if I spend a lot of money and I don't like to play or it just isn't for me? But, what if I get a cheap guitar and find out I love to play and have to go out and buy another guitar?

That's the dilemma and here is a the solution: You have to try to find a decent guitar for a decent price; it has to sound good, last a lifetime and be something you will be happy with for a long time.
