** The Acoustic Folk Guitar has steel strings
and is used for playing country, bluegrass & folk music…
(There are also Acoustic/Electric Folk Guitars, which can be plugged into an amp for performing but also sound good
without being plugged in.)
For ages 9-12: Size ¾ Acoustic Folk Guitar with
extra light steel strings for ease of playing.
For ages 13-Adult size ¾ or a mini/travel Acoustic Folk Guitar for ease of playing
and taking with you!
If you already have
a guitar but don't know which kind it is, look at the headstock and compare it to the photos below.
The second photo is the headstock of the Classical/Spanish
Acoustic Guitar which has nylon strings and is used for playing Spanish & classical music… It has a wider
fretboard than an Acoustic Folk Guitar, which can make it harder for youth and beginners to play.
Note: For NSTC Lessons students need to have their own good sounding playable Acoustic
Folk Guitar in order to make the most of their lessons and also for their own enjoyment of playing at home…
