I've been playing piano for past 5-6 years and I can't reach further than an octave (Even some chords within the octave are not reachable, or it's hard/borderline impossible to play them with reasonable speed) Fingers are proportionally short.
While I still enjoying playing the piano. I'm looking for an instrument that is not significantly less versatile, but is suitable for hands of my size.
I've already taken a brief look at classical guitar, and that clearly is not an instrument I find comfortable at all. I can't play/reach most chords, or some of them only in a way that doesn't produce a clean sound.
Compared to the piano, where getting piano with 7/8 sized keys costs a fortune (well, buying decent regular piano costs a fortune too), guitars of all sizes are ridiculously cheap(comparatively speaking of course!), and getting 3/4 sized electric is easily affordable.
Now there a few questions regarding this topic:
- What are the best electric guitars with small nut/neck?
- Do I need to get 3/4 size guitar or is regular sized electric with small/neck nut gonna be small enough to play comfortably (remember, very small hand, can barely reach an octave!)?
- What are the best 3/4 sized electric guitars?
Although I'm a complete beginner with guitars, I would like the guitar to sound really good, that is extremely important for a beginner. So I can spend significant money on the guitar if need be. (say up to 1000 eur) (If I'm gonna play on headphones mostly do I need to get an expensive AMP too? Or any will suffice?)
