Feels like picking up one of them but dont know which one should i choose...
Any recommendation?

And anyone knows where to buy them at reasonable price for a beginner?

Re: Ukelele or guitar?

I bought an acoustic guitar a few months ago. tried learning myself but realised it's quite impossible. . u can try going to davis guitar at peninsular shopping centre/plaza (can't rmb which), they sell reasonably priced acoustic guitars there. i bought mine at $145 and it looks really good.

Re: Ukelele or guitar?

i read somewhere that a decent-lasting ukelele can costs to as much as an average guitar.
lessons-wise, ossia school of music offers ukelele lessons in 4 sessions (or longer, not too sure)
there was a cristofori clearance sale couple weeks back which was a good time to get instrument

oh and those dealsites selling colorful ukeleles at $40, don't get them.
they're not properly tuned and would go out of tune in a couple of uses.

Re: Ukelele or guitar?

If you want to be unique, learn ukulele. Pretty much everyone plays the guitar these days anyway.

However, guitar is a much more versatile instrument especially the electric guitar.

Re: Ukelele or guitar?

If you decide to go for acoustic guitar, there are some places I can recommend if you're on a tight budget. Might need to increase your budget a little bit, but for guitars, can't go for too cheap or you'll be having lots of issues with it. $200 and above should be fairly safe.

Davis Guitar (Peninsula Plaza / Excelsior hotel basement)
Music Theme (Peninsula Plaza / Excelsior hotel basement)
Ranking Sports & Music (Bras Basah Complex)
City Music (Peace Centre, along Selegie road)

Re: Ukelele or guitar?

tuning should be done when you buy it already , unless string breaks . For me I found classical easier to start than acoustic
