How To Choose The Right Guitar

The first step, the guitar-shopping, is a very important aspect in every musician’s life. It can be exciting and scary at the same time. When you start conquering the world with your guitar, you’ll experience different things, you’ll make many mistakes, and fail over and over again…It’s really important that you pick your first guitar carefully and that’s why other websites made this list of the best acoustic guitars.

However, we are going in another direction; we’ll give you some helpful advices, not just feature the most recommended guitars.

What Will You Use The Guitar For

It’s nothing wrong about being dead serious when you’re just starting out. Because you’re actually going to need a lot of courage and motivation, to overcome every obstacle on your way. Now, when you’re just starting out, you need a guitar that is very forgiving and won’t show every mistake you make. If you pick a professional guitar for example, it’s true that it sounds better than entry-level models, but your mistakes will also be much more “visible”.

Which Genre Do You Want To Play

Definitely a question you have probably been asked before. If you like hard and distorted sound, then go for an electric guitar. Otherwise go for an acoustic guitar.

Of course, you can still play classical music on an electric guitar, but it just doesn’t feel right.

How Much To Invest In Your First Guitar

It’s very simple – expensive guitars sound better, are made out of better materials, can be easier played and learning on them is faster.

Still, that doesn’t mean that you have to spend all of your savings on the first guitar. If you really are serious about this hobby, then I recommend going for something in the range of 300 to 500 USD.

What To Look For

As you may know, wood has a strong impact on the sound, playability and appearance. So, I recommend that you research and learn about different types of wood first, then pick a guitar with your favorite type.

That’s pretty much it. I know this whole buying process can get overwhelming, but trust me, once you pick up your first guitar and start learning, you will enjoy the experience more and more as you get better. It really is one of the best feelings in the world. Plus, you can impress girls with your new guitar. ūüėČ

Michael Jackson’s Musical Legacy

‚ÄčIn 2010, ‚ÄčMichael Jackson, was delighted with the posthumous pop music album. The enthusiasm did not last long - fans have been claiming that some vocals in the tracks do not belong to the late Jackson, but the label denies this.

‚ÄčIn a lawsuit filed by Vera Serov's fan against Sony in 2014, three songs - Breaking News, Keep Your Head Up and Monster - are postponed to the posthumous board.

‚Äčhe vocals should belong to the imitator Michael Jackson. After years of judicial battles, the fan has not given up yet, and it does not recognize Sony's scam. "We have no reason to worry about us," ‚Äčthe ‚Äčlabel says.

‚Äč60 Years since he was born

‚ÄčA late musician who, after his death, remains one of the world's largest musical earners, would be 60 years old this year. The king of pop died unexpectedly nine years ago, precisely at a time when he planned a great return to the stage. ‚Äč

However, his premature death did not diminish the popularity of his music, at most the opposite.

‚ÄčHe was already a boy in the band The Jackson Five, where he sang with four other brothers. In spite of the great success of the Boys' Choir, he decided, at the beginning of the 1970s, to become an independent‚Äč artist. This decision made him one of‚Äč the most successful entertainers of all time.

‚Äčhis second album - an incredible success

‚ÄčIn 1979, he released his first solo album entitled The Off The Wall, which sold 11 million copies in the list of best-selling albums in the world.

He reached the peak of his fame three years later when he sent a record label entitled Thriller to the musical shelves. The Thriller album, known for Beat It and Billie Jean's albums, will not lose its popularity for a long time - by 2017, it sold 33 million copies on home soil.

He came out in 1982 in the golden age of music when the albums were successfully sold and the American music television program MTV attracted new listeners.
