Wood Guitar

Need a special type of guitar?

The simple answer is No! For a beginner, any (nylon strings) classical guitar to do the job.

Having said this, there are 2 points of confusion that are worth mentioning. It may seem obvious to most people, but I'm here to say they are not apparent to all.

1) Any guitar with steel strings that is not appropriate. There was a time when some country and western styles and guitars Jazz was advertised as "Spanish guitars" for some unknown reason. (I think because they have more or less the same way as a classical guitar / Flemish). If you look hard enough you may even find some books on the 1920's, 30's and 40's who have plectrum style music for this type of "Spanish guitars". The equation seems to be: music = Spanish Flamenco we play the Spanish guitar from my grandfather. Now, how where you put your spikes? Or something.

2) Another common misconception is that the classical guitar strings are steel. Outside are the same as their brothers steel, but that's where the similarity ends. Classical guitar strings have many fine nylon threads woven into the coil of copper. If you look closely you will see these aspects that protrude from the end of the string.

3) The action must be fairly low without producing excessive string buzz.

4) A solid wood top produces a better tone from a factory laminated wood guitar.

5) A perforated plate (golpador) needs to be attached at the top of the guitar. Instruments Genuine flamenco already have these decent, but any repair shop or Luthier guitar can stick one on for you. Right hand tapping techniques can certainly damage the guitar if this protection does not exist.

6) Flamenco guitars are generally lighter in construction. I personally do not like the guitars heavy. For me, a guitar should be comfortable and easy to use. Heavy wood guitars like a classical guitar not doing this for me.

7) When I was learning I bought cheap guitars only. Mainly because I could not pay $ 500 or more for a expensive hand made guitar by a respected luthier. That does not mean that second hand made products of the flamenco guitar is not good. For example, I think Yamaha makes good beginner guitars are classic than adequate for learning flamenco with a strike plate attached. I was very rough on my guitars so I never precious about an instrument. When my guitar needed replace, I just visited the local second hand guitar shop and spend an hour testing different classical style guitars. A guitar does not have to be expensive, but only has to "talk to me." What I mean is you need to feel comfortable and have a strong tone.

8) One consideration that I think is important is whether the strings maintain good tone even if they are quite worn. This has more to do with the guitar strings themselves. That's why trying old guitars in Store one seconds hand is a good idea if you just want an inexpensive tool beginners. I would first try with the chains worn. The problem is that most guitars sound wonderful, bright, shiny chains with new band but quickly lose their tone after a few days.

Strings - Which brand? What tension?

A brand of strings that a guitar does not suit another suit. The best way to determine what is best for your guitar is through experiment. Some popular brands are Savarez, Beauty, Augustine and D'Addario. If you are not sure of choosing the normal voltage stress.

Prolonging life chain

1) strings, of course, wear upon contact with the fret wire. Before this wear is excessive, loosen the rope and pull it through the hole in the saddle an inch or so. The idea is to change the section to use to display in the spaces between the frets to tighten back up again.

2) Reverse the strings when they wear so that it ends with a new section on the hole of sound.

3) Use a cloth soaked with lemon oil, before and after playing.

Brighten dull chains

Sweating 1) in the hands can obscure the echo on the bass strings. If this happens, loosen the strings and tighten them again.

2) Another method is to clean up more radical rope strained with a cloth soaked in methylated spirits. Lift the chain a couple of inches on the 12th fret and let slap back to the table of the fingers. This should loosen and shake some the dirt of the strings.

Changing strings

This is always a good idea to change the strings at once to maintain a constant tension in the neck and bridge. Adjust each new string to concert pitch before removing the old following.
