This article will talk about 4 guitars every beginner guitarist should know about.
In no particular order:
Gibson Les Paul
The Gibson Les Paul is one of the most iconic guitars around and I’m sure most of you have seen a picture of it (or even a real one!) at some point. Jimmy Page, Slash, Joe Perry, Zakk Wylde and Angus Young are just a few well known guitarists that played the Les Paul. They were first made in 1952 and after a few years Gibson decided to stop producing them because not enough people wanted to buy them. In 1968 Gibson started making them again and they have been popular ever since. The Les Paul is one of the most versatile guitars ever made and comes in many different styles including: Standard (the most common), Studio (a stripped down version with less features) and Custom (a higher end version with more features). If you’re looking for an all around great sounding guitar with a classic look then this is it!
This article is dedicated to the beginner guitarist and will focus on 4 different types of guitars that every beginner should know about.
The acoustic guitar is a beginner’s best friend. The acoustic guitar is easy to hold, has a mellow sound, and is a great instrument for practicing basic chords. Most acoustic guitars are made of wood and can be expensive; however, there are some cheaper models available at around $100 or less. You can buy an acoustic guitar at most music stores.
The electric guitar offers many advantages over the traditional acoustic guitar. Electric guitars are easier to hear when played with other instruments, so they’re perfect for playing with other people. Electric guitars require an amplifier; this allows you to change the tone of the guitar by manipulating the sound through the amplifier and speakers. Electric guitars also have a much wider variety of sounds available, which makes them suitable for different types of music than the acoustic guitar. Like their acoustic counterparts, electric guitars are made from wood and can range in price from hundreds of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars depending on what brand you buy. You can buy an electric guitar at most music stores as well as many department stores, but if you want to get one that really speaks to you it may be

Ibanez AEG10NII Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar
Feels important to remember that it was not so long ago that a project requiring an HTML table was considered advanced, and now we can’t even get our projects to load in under 2 seconds.
I’ve been thinking about the degree of freedom we have as creators or artists. There is a sense in which what we choose to do is determined by how much time exists in the day, how many hours of free time we have. If I am forced to choose between making two different things, I will make the one most worth making. And so it is not really a choice of what to do but a choice of how much time I spend working on each thing. It’s not up to me at all; if I have only an hour per day, there are only ever going to be a total of 576 projects in my life (768 after taking into account weekends), each with a known quantity of work and quality associated with it. Of course some projects will require more work than others, but in general the more time you spend on any given project the better you make it and the harder it becomes for others (esp. competitors) to catch up. All this assumes that we measure success solely in terms of popularity/impact, which is probably not such a bad assumption
