Acoustic vs Electric

Acoustic vs Electric

Mark takes us through the differences between acoustic and electric guitar, as well as all the different parts of a guitar! Vital to know as a beginner guitarist, indeed you can really hear the difference between the two instruments when listening to an acoustic performance of an electric song - have a listen to Come As You are by Nirvana performed acoustically for their MTV Unplugged in New York appearance compared to the origional Nevermind recording!

Come As You Are (Nevermind - electric)

Come As You Are (MTV Unplugged in New York - acoustic)

Electric & Acoustic Guitar

I cover all styles on both electric and acoustic guitar, enabling my guitar students to learn through the playing the songs that they love. Whether that is rock, pop, jazz, funk, blues, folk or anything in between we can cover it in our lessons. I have taught many beginner students over the years, developing a fantastic course of foundation lessons to enable my students to learn how to play the guitar at a pace that suits them. 

For more advanced guitarists I offer lessons to ensure that you reach that next level on guitar, whether that is improving improvistation, nailing solos or gaining a more rounded approach to playing guitar to a professional standard.
