What to look for when buying a new guitar for a beginner like me?

Posted by Guitar Pro on 19th June 2012 in Beginners

I’m going to learn to play the guitar this summer. Anything I should know before spending money on one? Obviously, I don’t need a fancy guitar, I just want a genuine one (I’ve had this cheap guitar that was made of very fragile wood and all nylon strings). Any tips?
Guitar I had seemed more like a toy one. Lol.

How can I choose my first guitar as a beginner?

Posted by Guitar Pro on 12th June 2012 in Beginners

Over my life I’ve always liked to listen to guitars being played, and I finally decided that I would like to learn to play. I need to pick out a guitar to learn on, but everyone says I need to play on different ones to decide which I like the best. However, I have no playing experience whatsoever, so I don’t know how I could possibly choose. Any suggestions or advice?
I will choose the best answer tomorrow.
