Article Body:
The acoustic guitar is the most wel
l-liked instrument for beginner mus
icians. It is simple to cart aroun
d, you can practice on it any time,
 and it has a very agreeable sound.
 The acoustic guitar also is someth
ing of an unknown quantity for anyo
ne just starting to learn to play,
so in this article I would like to
come to grips with issues such as t
he best acoustic guitar to buy for
the beginner, what to expect when y
ou take lessons and whether or not
you will need to learn to read musi
c. If you are just starting as a gu
itar player, and you need some guid
ance, keep reading.

First you will require a guitar. An
 acoustic guitar for a beginner is
often difficult to find. The best g
uitar is not too dear but painless
to play. With the number of low cos
t, poor quality acoustic guitars be
ing made recently you will perhaps
need someone you have faith in to a
ssist you to decide on your first g
uitar. If you do not know anybody t
o assist you choose a guitar, then
 it would be best to launch into yo
ur search based on brand names. The
re are some acoustic guitars in the
 average price range that are favor
ably recommended by veteran guitar
players:

The Ibanez AC30NT is a nicely-built
 guitar with an exceptionally agree
able tone.
If you go to your local guitar deal
er you might be able to hook up wit
h a Fender beginner's package conta
ining the low priced but serviceabl
e Fender DG-8S.

Another cheap beginner's guitar wit
h an excellent brand name is the Ep
iphone DR-100.

Takamine is another label to ponder
 with some fully reasonable guitars
 in their range. If you are constra
ined by your finances the Takamine
G-340 is a good selection.

For a grand looking, great sounding
 guitar, seek no further than the S
eagull S6 but it is a little more p
ricey than the others.

If you find yourself looking round
for a secondhand guitar, look for t
he brand names I have mentioned.

Your first acoustic guitar lessons
will doubtless be taken up with the
 basics of stringing and tuning you
r guitar. You might want to learn s
ome guitar music theory to assist y
ou to understand what you are doing
 when you begin to play scales and
chords.

When you are all set up with your a
coustic guitar and you have found a
 teacher or online lessons, you wil
l be looking around for songs that
you, as a beginner, might dream of
playing. Just center your pursuit o
n the kind of songs you enjoy. You
should find easy versions of your f
avorite songs that will make use of
 simple chords that you will still
be using as you grow into a guitari
st. The easiest songs will be using
 open chords which will only use tw
o or three of your left hand finger
s. You will be strumming or pluckin
g all six strings, but some of the
strings will be "open", that is, no
t fingered.

If you are wondering whether to lea
rn to read music or just tabs you w
ill find that guitar tabs are the e
asiest way to go. A few minutes of
reading will give you the basic ide
a behind tablature, and an online s
earch will clear up any rough spots
 in your comprehension.
You will find that starting out as
a beginner acoustic guitar player w
ill not be as difficult as you firs
t imagined, but
