So you've decided to start playing guitar. You walk into your local music store or go online to pick your first guitar. The question is, which one?
The two most popular types of guitar are electric guitar and acoustic guitar. Electric guitars are usually smaller, making them more comfortable and easier to play for smaller musicians. The downside is that to be able to hear them well, you also need a guitar amplifier. While they are larger, acoustic guitars are much more portable as you don't need to plug them into anything. This makes them good for playing in many environments and for the travelling musician.
Ultimately, it comes down to what you like more. If you pick a guitar that you want to play, it makes practicing a more enjoyable experience and allows you to grow much faster as a guitarist.
