Last week I made the case for a Strat as a first guitar.  But, in the 2020's, is there still a good case to be made for the good old acoustic guitar as the best first guitar?  Short answer: yeah, definitely sometimes.  Long answer: let's jump into that!

    Why Your First Guitar Should Be a Stratocaster / Strat Style

    Last week, I boldly proclaimed a beginning player who definitely wants to play country needs to start on a Tele, and I totally stand by that assessment.  So, how about if you (or your kid) wants to play guitar, but you really just want to PLAY?  Maybe some classic rock, some new rock, some country, some 70's disco, some punk, some roots rock or rockabilly, maybe even some 1980's new wave?  Folks there is really only ONE guitar to consider as a first guitar: The Fender Stratocaster or a Strat style guitar. Let's take a quick dive in, it won't take long.

    My Glorious Guitar Riff loving family, I hope y'all frickin LOVED last weeks blog on brand-freakin-new Guitar driven rock that most certainly does NOT suck.  Let's tease that out a little further.  If you are a long time reader of this blog you'll know that I often suggest to folks who either don't want to go on the road, or who CAN'T go on the road that they should consider your town's last great refuge for guitar players: church.  And yeah, it DOES seem to be the ONLY alternative to bars in most towns.  Hey, if the bar thing is workin' for you, keep right at it , if not... well, let's take a peek at exactly WHERE "Christian" Rock is these days.  Ready? 

    New Guitar driven guitar based rock 2022 2023 2024 2025

    Okay guitar gang, how many times in the last decade have you heard some lover of great guitar-riff based rock lament the death of guitar driven rock/pop music?  Be honest, how many times have YOU personally made a statement to this end?  And folks, a decade or so ago I was kind of thinking along those same lines, but THEN, I discovered the Great girl-fronted rock being made by bands like The Pretty Reckless, Hailstorm, ZZ Ward, Larkin Poe and other similar acts.  Crap, THAT'S where all the good rock riffs have gone!  Woo-hoo.  Let's talk about it!
