What is a Electric Guitar?
An electric guitar is a stringed instrument which is similar in appearance and build to an bass guitar, except it has six to eight strings (most commonly six), a shorter neck & scale length. It is typically played using fingers, thumb or by plucking, strumming, tapping, picking with a plectrum. An electric guitar is normally an octave higher than the bass guitar with its strings pitched to E, A, D, G, B and E.
What to consider when buying an electric guitar for a beginner?
There are a few main things to consider when buying a electric guitar for a beginner.
You should purchase the best electric guitar that you can afford. The better the instrument, the easier it will be to learn on.
Always begin on a 6 -string guitar and if you are smaller, try out a 3/4 size guitar.
Select a guitar which appeals to you - It won't change the sound but it may motivate you to pick it up and play it more often.
