Dan Keding Advice please about types of Guitars (36) RE: Advice please about types of Guitars 03 Mar 98

Murray, Get the guitar that appeals to you the most. The one that feels right and sounds right to your ears. I've heard some remarkable music, both country and blues, played on both types of instruments. Take someone else to the store whose playing you like or get one of the clerks to play a song you know and stand back and listen. Make sure the neck feels right in your hands, that the body rests up against you and isn't too big or too small. In short make sure its what you want in a guitar. This instrument is going to be your best friend when it comes to music so approach it that way and look for all the traits you want in that friend. I play steel string guitars and I enjoy the feel and sound. I play Larrivees from Canada and I like the shape of the body and neck, I like the tone and sustain and the way it rings.

Hope you find the right one to make some great music.
