Question by Ashley R: What is a good basic beginner guitar?
I have never played the guitar before and I don’t want to spend a ton of money around $ 100-200. However I want to enjoy my learning experience but I don’t have the money right now to get a really good guitar. Any suggestions? I have been looking at the Jasmine and the Johnson beginner.

i have a jasmine acoustic guitar, 100 dollars i think, and its great. I still play it even though i own other guitars. It has good sound quality, and durability. Tip: if you someday want to play electric guitar i would buy this because it trains your fingers very good. Hope this helps!

Squier basses are fine. The Affinity series Jazz bass and P-bass are nice guitars. They are right around $ 175.

You’ll still need a amp, but it’s a good guitar.

Question by WOO!: What are the first things to learn for jazz style guitar?
I’m a noob to jazz guitar and well…jazz period. But I’ve reached a point in my playing, that I’m ready to branch out from the genres I normally play. (Blues, Rock, Metal, r&b, ect.) Can someone give me help? Video links? Anything really. Thanks!

Learning a vast array of guitar chords is your primary goal and then using them in the songs of your choice. You must understand chord progressions in the key signatures and be able to quickly form and play them instantly without thought.

Getting a quality chord book from your music store is a good step. Learning them with all their associated chromatic applications is another. Some of the chords used exclusively in Jazz are major and minor sixths, ninths, elevenths, and thirteenths. Altered chords, such as those indicating sustaining a certain note in a chord, is also required to know.

Given the opportunity, study the techniques of the late Wes Montgomery and renown George Benson.
