These are classic guitars under the $500 budget which are well worth the price for the quality and build. The recommended guitars will last you from your beginner to performing stage as a musician and worshipper. See our checklist on what to look at in a guitar before you buy one! 1. Taylor Big Baby The Big Baby Taylor is what we would recommend (instead of the baby Taylor), a 15/16-scale Dreadnought. It is slightly smaller (15/16th size) than a full-size guitar, which makes it perfect for a child, youth or a travelling musician. I’ve used this for awhile and I have to say that the tone from strumming is bright and full.

Hymns are getting more exposure in recent times. Hymns are being sung and re-written in various contemporary ways. Let’s look at some of the popular ones and hope they inspire you in your own worship time. 1.

You are interested to learning the guitar or are a musician and are looking for a guitar. This article is for you. After choosing a guitar that suits your eye, be sure to hold the guitar, slide it under your arm and try playing it in a comfortable position. Here to see our top 5 recommendations for a guitar between the beginner to intermediate level. 1. Sound Try strumming, playing some scales or plain plucking of some notes.

Size While guitars come mostly in the same size, there are slight differences that are worth looking…
