How many stringed instruments can u use in one day?
All of these questions are answered here… so please go and read if they don’t already sound like a good idea!
Can I learn how to play an acoustic guitar without an accompanying instrument?
While we can recommend the excellent (if overpriced) Berkley Guitar, this is the only one we currently have stock at Sweetwater and it doesn’t have a built in guitar tuner. The Berkley Guitar has no built in tuner in the bridge position on the left hand side as with many acoustic guitars (and there are quite a few more on Amazon…).
While we can’t say for a sure thing that anyone would be able to solo with an acoustic guitar solo, we can say that you could learn how to do that from the bridge position using some of the techniques illustrated below:
First, play the scale as shown in the guitar tuning section below, then work your way up to the 3rd from your 1st string (for example, 3rd fret of note C).
As the fingerboard becomes more familiar with the fretboard’s notes, you can learn how to apply those specific notes to other keys (and then switch to other keys by sliding the instrument over to the correct fret).
There are even video tutorials available here on guitar to get you started and some fantastic YouTube video tutorials to help get you back on track… and we have loads more to bring you over the next few months!
Can I just pick an acoustic guitar that I don’t own and just play?
Of course! That’s why we provide so many different stringed instruments at Sweetwater with our in store learning tools, and you can learn to play as many of them as you like. We also offer a great alternative to buying instruments from big box stores like Walmart by simply asking one of our knowledgeable Sweetwater staff to explain the difference between the different brands and models which can save you money! Don’t want to pick a stringed instrument and then have to go on a buying spree? Just check back here for the next blog post and then come back to Sweetwater as we’ll be releasing many more affordable guitar strings from our Sweetwater store in a few months.
