① Choose a guitar that is the right size for you

When learning to play an acoustic guitar for the first time, you should use the right size guitar. The size of the guitar will affect how easy it is to play. Based on size, there are four types of acoustic guitars. Each type has its own characteristics. You can choose the type that best suits your personal preferences.

Besides size, the type of wood used to make the top/neck is an important factor to consider. Different materials will produce different sound characteristics.

③ Check the type of strings used

④ Use an acoustic electric guitar to play live

You can play an acoustic electric guitar at home just like playing a regular acoustic guitar. Also, by connecting it to an amplifier using a jack cable, an acoustic electric guitar can produce a big sound.

⑤ For starters, consider a top only veneer or all plywood guitar

The body of an acoustic guitar is usually made by combining various woods. Based on the wood structure, there are three types of acoustic guitars: all veneer, all plywood, and top only veneer.
