Finding the right electric guitar for what you want to do with it is important and can be confusing if you do not know much about guitars. To avoid spending too much money, do some careful shopping around before you buy. This will allow you to get familiar with some of the prices out there, and what you should expect to get for a certain amount with the features you are looking for. This will also allow you to become familiar with what the different brand names are as well as different models available.

Often times you can save a huge amount if you buy a used guitar. Actually play it and see if you like the sound it makes. Listen for any string buzz; this can be a sign that it just needs a simple adjustment in the way that it is setup. Sometimes if you are buying from a reputable seller they will offer to make any necessary adjustments for you, if not then the cost to have a guitar properly setup is not very much money at all.

If you plan on playing in a band as a guitarist, then you will probably be standing up with the guitar strapped over your shoulder for long periods of time. You will probably not want to buy one that is too heavy, this is important if you do not want to develop any back problems! If you will just be practicing in your room while you are learning how to play, then the weight of the guitar is not going to be so much of an issue.

If the guitar feels right to you then the first step has been accomplished. Next, how does it sound to you? Are you able to get the exact sound that you imagined you could get from it? If you think it is close to the sound you want then you could always make slight adjustments to the amplifier. Many people like the sound of the electric guitar being played through an amp on clean settings. This is when there is no overdrive or distortion set on the amp. This is often good for arpeggiated parts or strumming rhythm much like you would do with an acoustic.

The materials may or may not play an important role in getting the sound you want. Obviously the higher the quality of materials used to build the guitar, the higher the price will be. Some guitars built of lesser quality can actually produce the exact sounds you are looking for. You do not have to have the very best in order to sound great!

Some people prefer the sound of the electric guitar through the overdriven or distortion settings of the amp. This actually thickens up the sound a lot and will often mask mistakes! It is a whole lot easier to sound like a good guitar player through distortion that it is with no distortion. Most amps offer an almost unlimited variation of settings that you can make. Often it is as easy as the push of a button to turn the distortion on or off. You should also be able to dial in just the right amount of reverb for the style of music that you want to play.

Over time you will learn lots about guitars. Who makes the really desirable ones and which ones work best for which particular style of music. For instance you may want to play country music. A Fender telecaster, or a Fender Stratocaster through a Fender amplifier set on the clean settings is the classic way to apply the country style guitar playing. Adding a bit of compression in the form of guitar effects processing will give even more of a very controlled country music sound.

If you've been hearing the buzz on Urge recently, it's not about a deep desire or compulsion - it's about MTV's offering to the world of online music downloads and streaming.

Urge is a subscription based music download service in which its patrons can subscribe for a monthly fee of $10 and listen to as many of the 2 million songs in MTV's coffers as they like. If they'd like to download that song, then it costs 99 cents each.

But it's not just MTV behind the latest addition to the world of online music. Microsoft and MTV are working together on this one. Bill Gates must have seen the success of similar sites like Napster and Rhapsody and decided to jump on the bandwagon. Urge's challenge will be to convince all those music lovers who prefer to buy songs and download them through sites like the incredibly popular iTunes, owned by Apple computers, that subscribing to a site and being able to listen to whatever songs you like, in whatever order and as often as you like is just as good or better than buying them one by one. It's just one more battle to add to the long running conflict between Microsoft and Apple.

Does Bill have anything different to offer through Urge? Anything that makes this latest venture stand out from similar sites? Not really. Should you choose to become an Urge subscriber, you won't find any music that you wouldn't find on any other download - subscription site. The prices are even pretty much the same.

What they do offer is a aesthetics - their site looks good. Plus, there's the camaraderie. Subscribers can post on blogs and converse with one another. But that's about it.

But with Microsoft powering the marketing and advertising engine behind Urge, it's sure to do well. Even the latest incarnation of Microsoft's Windows Media Player has Urge built in. Everyone with a PC has access to this free player and therefore easy access to Urge.

What PC users won't have is the portability provided by the wildly popular iPod. Current owners of iPods, should they decide to subscribe to Urge, will have to buy songs through the site, download them, burn them onto CDs and then convert the music files to mp3s in order to be compatible. Other portable devices are compatible with the service, however, and those are listed on the site.

This all may change in the Christmas of 2006, as buzz indicates Microsoft plans to release their "iPod Killer". Based on the Xbox brand, and including additional features like gaming, this media player is aimed right at Apple's heart, and could quickly make "Urge" a household name, assuming the two products are closely linked.

Each of the music download sites has their own strengths and weaknesses. Urge fully divides and subdivides genres so that its subscribers can easily find what they're looking for while exploring other bands that they might like. Yahoo Music Unlimited personalizes the start page to include suggestions based on the subscribers previous downloads and offers a cheaper subscription rate. Rhapsody has the best radio services, providing specialized stations that stream a pre-set list of music.

If you can't decide, then try one or try them all. Each of them offers a free trial subscription. You can experiment with all of them and decide which one suits you best.
