Things for new guitar players to avoid – Stiff Strings


Don’t play with stiff metal strings.

Because it’s what we’re used to seeing advanced guitar players using we may just automatically think that’s what we should do too.

But for a beginner, metal strings are hard on the fingers and playing can be painful. So painful in fact, it may be a reason to quit.

Start with nylon strings – the kind you find in all classical guitars. They may not sound the way you think a guitar should sound, but hang in there.

You can change later when you get past the beginner stage. In fact you’ll probably want a better guitar at that stage anyway, and you’ll be in a much better position to know what to get.
