6. The Acoustic Guitar
The acoustic guitar is by far the most popular starters instrument. Its affordable, easy to transport, quiet enough not to disturb others during practise, relatively easy to make a nice sound, and doesnt need any additional equipment like amplification. It can also been seen as a more serious instrument to learn on first if a child ultimately wants to play electric guitar, as the skills and techniques can be transferred. There are two types of acoustic guitar; classical (or nylon strung) and steel strung which is what is most often meant when someone refers to an acoustic guitar. The classical guitar is considered to be best for beginners as it uses nylon strings, which are much easier to play than steel - the lighter string tension makes it much easier to press the string down onto the fretboard to sound a note.
