  • What guitar should i pick?

    Best answer: I suggest switching to a "crossover" AKA "hybrid" classical guitar, which uses easy-to-press nylon strings, and incorporates a narrower fretboard than a standard classical guitar.  For example, http://www.antoniohermosa.com/ah10nf.html , about $180usd new.

    Best answer: I suggest switching to a "crossover" AKA "hybrid" classical guitar, which uses easy-to-press nylon strings, and incorporates a narrower fretboard than a standard classical guitar.  For example, http://www.antoniohermosa.com/ah10nf.htm... , about $180usd new.

    Tommymc touched on the guitar's setup, and I wish to emphasize that.  Take the guitar to a luthier or experienced guitar technician to check the neck relief (the fretboard's very, very slight forward bow), string heights at the nut (where the strings cross from the tuners to the fretboard), and height at the 12th fret.

    Before anything else is checked or adjusted, the neck relief must be set.  This is so quick and easy that shops very seldom charge for it.

    String heights at the nut are determined by the depth of the slot a string rests in.  It is common for the heights to be very excessive, making playing in the lower frets difficult, painful, and out-of-tune.  As this is precision work and requires special tools, it's no DIY job.

    Once the neck relief and nut slots are correct, string height at the 12th fret can be set.  On an acoustic, the height is lowered by sanding the bottom of the saddle (which the strings cross before attaching to the body).

    You might also consider changing to a light gauge string set, .011-to-.052 80/20 bronze.  If you go even lighter, say to .010-to-.047 or silk&steel, very likely the neck relief will need to be adjusted for the lower tension.

    ————— ————— ————— ————— —————

    About hand size — I've been a bassist and guitarist for most of my professional life, and I often play standard classical guitars with a spacing of 1.7 inch (43.3mm) from E to E at the nut.  My fretting hand's index finger, from the tip to the crease at the bottom, is below average at just 2.75 inch (6.99cm), but I seldom strain except in rather unusual cases.

    It is quite possible that your difficulties are due, at least in part, to guitar positioning and suboptimal fretting-hand technique, and maybe limited finger-spread as well.  A decent CLASSICAL guitar teacher can provide guidance in these areas, and give you reach & development exercises.

  • Piano and guitar?

    Best answer: Piano has had so much written on it and for it. The standard And breadth of music produced is so very high that it’s a difficult instrument to master completely. What maybe makes the piano easier to learn or get started is the layout of the keyboard. The fretboard of a guitar is not quite so straightforward.

    I listen to my music every night to fall asleep so I need new songs quite often. I like all types of music except heavy metal and rap. I don't listen to songs that are about drugs or death or mental issues or anything else depressing. Bad words are fine if they're not overexaggerated and if there's only a few. I don't mind songs about sex cause there are a couple that I Like such as "I'll make love to you." And. "Tonight I'm loving you." Though I listen to the version that uses the other word that I don't like typing or saying out loud. I like attitude songs, sexy songs, danceable songs, some love songs, sweet songs like songs about family and friendship that are not depressing. I like pretty much any generation of music, 1950's and up. Some singers I like are Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Lonestar, Adele, Avril Lavinge, though of course, I have a lot of their songs. As you can tell I prefer female singers but there are male singers I like as well, I have few from Cody Simpson that I enjoy, a few from Hunter Hayes. Oh and I also have a lot of Katty Perry songs, and I don't listen to Justin Beiber. I hear him too much because of my sister and friend and when I was twelve I made myself a deal to never get interested in his music.

  • Are flats and sharps practically the same thing in music?

    Best answer: I'd say no, not at all! A flat lowers the pitch of a note by a semi-tone, a sharp raises the pitch of a note by one semi-tone. The notes, for example, Ab and A# are not "practically the same thing". Of course, in practice, when sharps and flats are used in musical notation, in terms of actually... show more

    Of course, in practice, when sharps and flats are used in musical notation, in terms of actually playing a note, nowadays, a Bb and and A# are played at the same pitch and it's just context that determines what the note is called.
