Different Types of Guitars

Students often wonder what type of guitar they should buy when first starting out.  The 3 main options are classical, steel-string acoustic or electric.  All 3 types of guitar are suitable for beginners, however there are advantages to each of them.

Where can I buy my first guitar in Montreal?

A great place to rent or buy your first guitar is Steve’s Music or Archambault.  They have a wide selection of guitars that range in price from $150 to $1000. You can also look on Facebook: Vente et échange d’équipement de musique or Kijiji and find a used guitar that is still in great condition.  Make sure to ask around or do an internet search to make sure that it is a quality instrument before buying.

How much do guitars for beginners cost?

A brand new beginner guitar costs between $100-$200.  Steve’s music has a great selection of guitars in that price range. It is recommended to start with a classical guitar.  The reason being that classical guitars have nylon strings which are much easier on the fingers and therefore easier to play.  This allows for quicker learning which greatly helps beginners push through the often frustrating first stages of learning the instrument.

Should I learn tab or solfeggio?

Ideally every guitarist should learn both tab and solfeggio.  Learning solfeggio allows the student to understand which notes they are playing as well as the correct rhythms (tab doesn’t include rhythm.)  That said, you can certainly learn all your favourite songs while only understanding tab.  Tab is generally the language of the internet, and so by learning tab you gain the ability to learn millions of songs. In a nutshell, if you prefer taking the shortcut to learning your favourite popular songs, then learn tab. If you want to be a real student of music, take the time to learn solfeggio as well.

A great book to learn guitar solfeggio is Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1: Book Only

Learning your favourite songs

Many people say that the only way that they feel motivated to practice music is when they are learning songs that they love.  Are you one of those people? Then let your favourite songs be the guide to your path in music.  If you love Ed Sheeran, than by golly, learn Thinking Out Loud!

Learning guitar soloing

Let’s face it, guitar solos are plain and simply, the best.  Learning a guitar solo is an amazing way to learn how to express yourself through the instrument.  It is also great for developing finger dexterity.  We’ve put together a great blog post on how to play the guitar solo in Ed Sheeran’s Thinking out Loud.

Charles is very knowledgeable about music and his passion for teaching definitely shines through. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
Elijah has been teaching my 3 children (ages 10,9 and 7) for a total of 4 years now (we started with one child and later, 2 more siblings followed with now my fourth is waiting for her turn). As a parent, what I LOVE about Elijah is his open spirit. He engages and teaches the children music that THEY choose and like. He also encourages them to sing the songs with the music. My children love the lessons and recitals and for me, as a parent, that means a lot.
