Hey guys nd gals,

im new on this site, i was wondering whether id have trouble starting with a normal sized acoustic guitar. I have really small fingers. i mean really really small. would i have trouble with a regular acoustic guitar?? thanks..

youd probably be better of with an electric in my opinion if youve got small fingers.

you guys always say that you have to go to the shop and try out, but imagine. you have decieded to start playing guitar and you walk in a guitar shop and you ask to try some guitars.

get the point?
when you are new with guitars you can't play anything and when you can't play anything you can't try out a guitar because you don't know how.

at threadstarter, go to a guitar shop and ask for advise and I think you should start of with a normal sized acoustic

my fingers are quite small too but it hasn't really limited me (except i can't do big 4 finger stretches). you should be ok with a normal sized acoustic.

I doubt it. I know tiny people who can play a 6 string bass with ease. It is all about developing the strength and flexability in the hands. Guitarists complaining about having the stretch just haven't practised enough.

My freind has a regular acoustic guitar. I tried to stretch my fingers as far as i could while still being able to fret properly. I got from the 1st fret to the 5th with index and pinky. is that ok??

ive got small hands to, but you really just learn to work around it. actually, its not even like its a disadvantage, you just learn in your own way

just practice and youll get good no matter what the hand size

Small hands/fingers isn't really an excuse. No arms, thats an excuse.

Well go for a acoustic with a thinner neck maybe. ibanez and takemine have quite thin necks.
