Hi I am a beginner guitarist and I have played my acoustic guitar for 3 months and now I am planning to buy my first electric guitar. I made a choice between ltd MH-100QMNT and EC-50. Please guys suggest me the best guitar among this two or beside these two also... Thank you.
'Ight. I got you bro. So you have been playing for three months. AWESOME! Everyone starts somewhere. Even better, you started on acoustic. Now, the big thing here is the transition. I assume your acoustic has a thicker neck. That is something to take into consideration when buying one of the options you listed. The EC model has a thicker neck of the two. Therefore, easy transition. On the other hand, the MH is going to alow you to have more speed. This is not something you should really be worrying about right this minute. Get your technique down first. Now that being said, you should ask yourself what you want to do. If you like that sound of deep earth chug that sends concusions to the chest of the audiance, the EC is for you. That is a rythm MACHINE. If you want to take that step into the door of melody, and be everywhere on the guitar at once, the MH is the clear choice for you. Now I do have to say, you may want to step up the quality of the instrument for longevity and work purposes. Both instuments are well...cheap... To make them playable, there is going to be more set up than the guitar is worth to be honest. I am a firm believer that the 400 series and up are the best choices for a beginner. Those are affordable. WAY different than cheap. Congrats on getting a new guitar!
I must say that at 52, going back to college and also trying to learn guitar has been very challenging. but I am doin my best to practice and progress even with all the law class homework. being a beginner, i have tried many guitars, i own 18 of em lol, but the best i have tried playing and the one that has rnewed my vigor for learning is my newest addition, ESP EII Mystique, this guitar is totally awesome and the neck has made it much easier for me to play. only other guitar I like playin almost as much would be my Parker. anyway just wanted to say hi and hope we all can help each other learn stuff on these boards. Heres a pic of my new baby.
My very first guitar, that I still have today, was a craftsman travel size acoustic guitar that my dad bought me when I was 7 or 8. I remember being in awe when my dad played guitar so much and was always picking it up, even though I wasn't supposed to touch his guitars, and trying to figure out what was going on with this magical item that made all these colorful emotions and stories through sound painted over silence. He eventually got my step brother and I each the travel size guitars and ever since I've just been fascinated.
I think I would consider GNR as 70's/80's rock n roll/ metal, almost like a fusion but heavier on the hard blues rock side of the spectrum. The only reason I consider it metal in a way is because the licks Slash does some crazy licks that are a bit more than your normal rock licks (aka Rolling Stones, the Beatles, ect...)
Hey bretherin! I just made a new youtube channel for all guitarist to join. I'm doing video lessons for anyone to learn from AND I will be interveiwing local artist in my area in videos soon to come! If you're in a band thats not exactly famous I will also be doing Skype interveiws in the near future. And since I can't post links just look up my name in the search bar and I am the first channel and vid to come up! I would love to see you all there! OH and I am always taking requests for new content to come. Come on and subscribe!
Ah I feel ya man. We all start there. So you've done the right thing! Strings that are comfortable are exactly what you need to start out on. Later on down your road of being a musician you will find that other gauges of string may be beneficial for different turnings. 11's are good for Slash music because he is tuned down a half step on all his strings. May not make sense to you now but it will down the road. But personally. I like the Cobalt Super Slinkys. They last forever AND they physically louder than any other string you will put on your guitar because of the cobalt in them. Give em a shot.
I am learning to play guitar. Currently Taking lessons, so most of the time I'm playing through a clean channel but sometimes I like to play around with high gain settings.
I believe I had 11/49s before but I thought they were to lose, and the low E strings was giving me an awful fret buzz, so I put thicker strings on my low strings. The tension seems fine, the tone is better but they feel thick and awkward compared to my ibanez.
