Question: Does the Number of Frets on a Guitar matter!?
i'm looking to buy a guitar and i have no idea if the number makes a differenceWww@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Yes it matters if you are trying to play certain things!.

I wouldn't go with a Fender or anything like that because they only have 21 frets!.

Any regular guitar will have 22, which goes from E to D in standard tuning!.

24 Frets goes from E to E!.


It shouldn't matter too much either way if a song does call for you to go higher than the 22nd fret you can always learn to use artificial and natural harmonics!. also if it's a non cut away guitar chances are you won't be reaching up to the 24th fret anyways!

Hope this helps!Www@QuestionHome@Com

sometimes, i mean it depends on what you want to play if you want to play some really high notes then yes
tho if its an electric guitar you can just buy a ppedal lol Www@QuestionHome@Com
