I need help with something.
Well, I am planning on buying a classical guitar because I need a guitar that won’t hurt my finger tips as much and is easier on small hands. I’ve never had a guitar before and my hands are a little bit below average size. Oh, and are regular acoustics, or classical guitars more expensive? And how much should I spend on my classical guitar? Thanks!
You can get a nice Yamaha classical guitar for about 0.00 or even less on sale, to start with this would be just fine, my first classical costs about 5.00 and I still have it today and it still has a great sound, when I play with Cd’s the tone doesn’t sound much different then my good one, unbelieveable, considering that it’s over thirty five years old. As for having little hands or fingers, that has nothing to do with it if your holding your fingers and hand correctly you won’t have any problems, look on youtube there’s a lot of young girls on there playing classical guitar with very small fingers and hands and they sound great, one girls blind, and boy can she play well !!!!!!! Hold your thumb in the center of the back or the guitar neck, it’s awkard at first but with time and practice you’ll see that this makes it so much easier later on when your trying to make comlicated chords, don’t ever hold your thumb over the neck, that will slow you way down, go on youtube and type in Liona Boyd, she’s one of the worlds greatest women guitarist and you won’t see her thumb over the neck. If you go to the guitar center and see a guitar that you like, make sure that you play a lot of them, that they have the right action and sound that your looking for, some people don’t realize that they all may look alike but they don’t all sound or feel the same. You can get a Remirez guitar (in Spain) for about ,000 that’s my dream to own one of them, and acoustic guitars can go for the same price, depends on who makes them. I hope that you don’t think playing classical doesn’t hurt your fingers because you’d be wrong, I have very thick callouses on my fingers, after about two hours of playing your fingers hurt just as they do with acoustic, well good luck with your playing !!!!!!! bye.
